This time it was a celebration for our beautiful nephew Oliver, he had his first birthday party on Sunday and we all had a super time. I can't believe this little man is one already, the time is passing far too quickly. LOL

I took lots of photographs BUT most of them are awful as the children/babies were all moving around or dancing and hardly any of them are in focus :( (I know, I know, I should have put my camera on "sports" mode) Also, Oliver is soooo hard to photograph mainly because he's never still long enough, I have never seen a baby crawl so fast in my life. LOL I didn't even get a cuddle as he was on the go non stop, I'm going to visit at bed time in future at least then I'll stand a chance of a sneaky hug LOL

Oliver just about to blow out his candle.

Tiger Jack, we were very surprised he sat still to have his face painted :) His mouth is full of cake. LOL

Our beautiful nephew Charlie was Christened 2 weeks ago :D
Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend his Christening due to CD again :( BUT I do have some photos Lauren and Alan took.

He's just the sweetest wee pet.

I have started my Christmas crafting by digging out my Bucilla Christmas stocking I bought last year. I had started it but got too carried away making loads of other Christmas decorations and didn't have enough time to finish it :(
So, I've started early this year and it WILL be finished in plenty of time with NO excuses LOL.

Here's what it will be when it grows up :D

I was meant to be cropping with friends today but it was cancelled this morning SO . . . not to miss out on a good old chin wag we went out to lunch instead :D
Lunch actually lasted from half past twelve till four o'clock !! But we did sneak in a bit of stash shopping too :D :D

Special love and wishes go to my good friend Margaret who has been through the mill recently BUT will be on the mend very soon and feeling good as new. (((HUGS)))Margaret xxx

I've not made anything for a couple of weeks as my mojo seems to have gone AWOL again :(

To be honest I think it's more to do with lack of physical ability than anything else. My CD and back have been playing up again and sitting for any length of time is a big NO NO at the moment. . . it certainly not anything to do with age LOL.

Anyway, here's a couple of photos of Jack that Lauren took yesterday in my car . . .who could resist this wee face ****WUBS***

Today I was cropping with friends, actually that's a fib, they were cropping I was footering with paper LOL

FOOTERING . . . Scottish word . . . definition . . . messing around . . . LOL

All I did from 10.45am till 6pm was . . . crop two photos, fix about 20 brads to paper and then decide I didn't like my choice of paper for the photos DOH!

Having said all that, I did have a lovely day chatting and laughing with friends so that more than made up for my lack of mojo LOL

Here are 2 photos of Jack having fun on the go carts with his Mummy in St.Andrews last month :D
