Today’s post will have all the other random photos for the last wee while. Firstly, I found some more photos from Abigail’s tenth birthday. After we had all gone for a walk in the hills we made our way back home to baked potatoes and toppings, after which we played a couple of party games before gathering together to pray for the birthday girl and her coming year. I had filled a piñata with bits and pieces. We hung it from our beams and Gary had great fun moving it to tricky to find places…
Sharing the spoils:
Doughnuts on a string:
And finally the birthday cake I’d knocked up that morning:
Elsewhere, Thomas has been teaching Abigail how to play chess:
Lillie has been doodling again:
We just came back from a holiday in Northern Ireland, and I didn’t get even one photo! So unlike me, especially as we only see friends and family there once a year. It felt like a flying visit as we had to fit it into the week Thomas had off from college. We did a stack of charity shopping whilst we were there, and if I never see a charity shop again it will be too soon!! I did find some wonderful bargainatious finds though, such as these pictures and material hearts:
and this incredibly cute dolly:
The pumpkin above was carved by Charlotte and reads ‘I love you to the moon and back’ 🙂 I also bought these ‘mine and yours’ mugs for Lillie and I. Lillie sometimes finds it hard to talk about her feelings so I bought these mugs. I figured anytime she needs to chat she can make a tea for her and I and we’ll sit down and have a chat. Cute, no?
We will be decorating the final room in the house which has not been touched since we moved in almost a decade ago – the toilet upstairs. I will be kitting it out in creams and dark greys and found all of these, bar the towels, from charity shops for pennies. I love me a good bargain:
And, finally a lovely picture of Thomas and Charlotte collaborating on a music project together. I knew this day would come! It warms the cockles of my heart (if my heart had any such cockles – what a peculiar saying!):
Tomorrow’s post will be catching up with all that has been going on this week. I am finally all caught up! Yay me!!
