Party on!



Its Birthday season in this household. I think October is such a great time to be born, well I would say that as "ITS MY BIRTHDAY TOMORROW!!!" I know, I'm far too old to get excited and to shout about it, but I am "SO EXCITED!"


That's what it was like for my little boy too this week, I can't believe it was four years ago when I got a little cross with a certain chef on TV, cooking in his Devon restaurant which led to my munchkin number two, to be born 2 weeks early!

Fun was had at his birthday party, at home with a select few bashing the daylights out of a flying pig! Yes that is what you can see above, my attempt at a homemade pinata! It was worth the effort, their faces were a picture as the sweets came pouring out!


Ladies, (and gents if you read my blog!) we all love bargains and I can't resist them. Whilst purchasing party food at a well known food store I came across this gorgeous cardi. It sums up Autumn to me, Mustard and cosy! It just ad to be popped into the shopping trolly.

And for my REALLY mega bargain, I confess to never have entered Matalan before. I am glad I did look what I got for a £1! In fact, I had to by four of them! Even JP loves them, what a lovely man!

I am enjoying my tea!

Tara, I need to nurse a cold and enjoy the last few rays coming through the dining room window.
