OK... HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Our Fireworks last night:
ABOVE: If anyone was awake at midnight near our house last night, they wouldn't have been after our fireworks! They were huge and super noisy. Coco had the shakes for ages afterwards, poor girl.
Now... some happy snaps from yesterday:
ABOVE: Sam and Nicky and their two children, Alex and Sophie visiting yesterday.
ABOVE: Alex on the swing, it's proved to be very popular.
ABOVE: Gorgeous Sophie in the paddle pool with Archer.
ABOVE: She's a stunning wee girl.
ABOVE: Archer worked out how to empty the water out of the pool.
ABOVE: Sophie and Steve.
ABOVE: Nicky enjoying the swing too.
ABOVE: Seconds before Bex said 'Leave it alone!"
More BABY BUMS... these two littlies are 9 days apart in age, Archer being the elder.
ABOVE: Cute, cute little babes.
ABOVE: Sophie, Nicky and Bex.
PIE FACE PHOTOS FROM LAST NIGHT:
ABOVE: I laughed so much I nearly threw up again!
ABOVE: Steve having a go with the inks... his first attempt got wiped off, that is his 2nd one.
ABOVE: Bex having her first go too... and her 1st tile ever.
ABOVE: My ink work from last night... a tryptic which will be mounted and framed, and ...
ABOVE: This one, which I really like. It's not a big tile. Just a bit bigger than a coaster.
A Funny: Stew, Brylee, Steve and Bex playing Yahtzee last night. Brylee asked: "What big ones don't I have yet?"
Steve answered without even thinking about it: "Breasts, three of a kind, four of a kind and a small straight".
Shit do we have some laughs in this house! Don't worry, Brylee is not the only person mocked around here. No one is safe.
Right. Today. More family time. Steve, Bex and the boys are leaving for their home at some point.
Then it's back to 'normal' around here for a little while I suppose.
I hope everyone has an awesome 1st of January, 2017. We're going to.
5.20 pm: And it's been a very quiet day. Steve and Bex packed up and left for home just before lunchtime, then it was tidy up time around here.
The kids did the vacuming, I got three loads of washing done, and after a general tidy up, the house was back to normal.
I must clean some windows at some point, Archer likes messing them up!
We are having left over stew made into pies, with mashed potatoes and veges for dinner. Should be nice.
Dinner was nice. Then I had a go at another ink painting... but kept fluffing it up, so gave up. Too tired I think.
Off to bed soon as we have a day trip planned for tomorrow.
