Let's all have a lovely day!

I know I will.  Bex, Dante and I are off to visit Lacy and Keera.  I'm hoping to get a little video of Keera taking her first steps towards being a 'walker'.

She has been taking a few steps for about a week now, but I've not managed to get her on tape.
Maybe today?

While we are over that way... I'm going to buy a darling scarf I saw in a shop ... cos I want to.
It's not something I NEED, but it's a good day for some retail therapy.  

IT'S FRIDAY THE 13TH!  Lucky I'm not superstitious or anything eh?  It's gunna be a lovely day... yes indeedy it is.

I took a little video of Dante and I last night, it took two hours to load onto YouTube, and I can't hear any sound with it.  Can YOU?

I love this photo. That baby can make a bad day better just by smiling at his Grandma.  Excuse poor quality of photo!  Webcam isn't that crash hot.

I am off now to do lunches, and look forward to seeing Miss Muppet (yeah, and you Lacy) later on this morning.


I was browsing through some Patchwork magazines the other day and got an awesome idea!
 ABOVE:  what a neat idea to display your 'special' buttons!  I've got quiet a few buttons I don't want to 'use' and lose, so I'm gunna do that.  I can get really cheap photo frames from the Hospice Shop ... so it won't even cost much.  SCORE!

ABOVE:  it arrived!  Only about a week ago I ordered it from the UK, and look at that... already here!  EXCELLENT.

Really happy now.   ♪La ♪la ♪la ♪la....

The girls, babes and I have had the most LOVELY morning!
We went for a walk about... stopped in several of our favourite shops and yep... I bought that scarf I had me eye on too.

ABOVE:  the pale blue scarf is the one I wanted and in another shop I saw the black one and it was a third the price of the blue one, so I got it too.  And those are wooden buttons.  Couldn't resist them either.  

We all got a Subway sandwich for lunch... I've not had Subway in about a year, I'd forgotten just how nice they are.

ABOVE:  we went back to Lacy's to have our lunch.  Keera had a cracker with Marmite on... clearly she loves it!  

ABOVE: Dante on Keera's ride on bike.  He rather liked it.  Probably almost time he got his own.

I did get a few video's of Keera, but the little Madam didn't want to walk for us.  I shall download one anyway and post it... probably tomorrow. 
It is bound to take hours to load onto YouTube.

Almost home time for the kids.  So I shall chill for a while now and get some housework done once they are home.  They can help me.
