Happy Birthday Peter

Our son was twenty-seven yesterday.
It only seemed five minutes ago he was just born on a cold snowy day 5th February 1986!

We had a great 'mini' picnic in the back of the car on Monday.  Grandad put an old sheet in the back of the car before we left just in case if anything  got squashed into the seat, but in the end we only had crisp crumbs!
We had sausage roll, and crisps, mini cakes nana made on Sunday and a bowl of washed grapes which Caitlin and Liam eat all of.  The nana and grandad spent the afternoon in AJ's and as a treat we eat tea there.  But AJ's have a strict no camera policy so no photos.

This is not the time!

.The sun is shining the sky is blue so do I feel like I don't want to do anything?

The yellow daffodils sprang into life 

now they are ready for the compost!

I started a quilt, but for the last couple of days things have come to a stand still, because..........I should be de-cluttering, I should be tidying, my brain is saying don't just sit there do something!  I know what I should be doing, I know what I want to do, I know what I would prefer to do.  So for the rest of the day I will take it easy and try and bounce into action tomorrow she says!  

I tried to bounce into action today by tidying my needlework basket and box........these are not the only two I have another two with projects in that need sorting too!

Tomorrow have to finish a jumper I started well before Christmas for Liam.  I t is ok it will still fit him because I knit to grow into at this age!

Tomorrow I have to finish printing off the menus and order of the day and cut up place names for Peter and Steph's wedding in four weeks time!

Tomorrow I will be preparing a mini picnic for Monday.  We are grandchildren minding which we are looking forward to, the first time on their own with nana and grandad.

Perhaps in a few days I will come back with a "TAH DA" or two, she says hopefully..........
