My birthday....

I had a great birthday,
went to work as usual but then off we went straight to Droitwich to spend the night an jackies house, we went out for a gorgeous carvery ....with pudding.......,
it was so great to see them after i think a year, and we had a great evening
 they surprised me with a gorgeous choccie birthday cake, although after pudding none of us could eat it!

thanks girls and thanks jackie and dave for being the perfect hosts x

we left jackies sunday morning and went off to have a wonder round Stratford upon Avon to do a little bit of christmas shopping,
and of course we had to call in to our fave little tea shop and partake in their gorgeous warm scones with jam and cream, which i have to say were better than ever

what a busy week

it was my birthday last saturday and among lots of gorgeous pressies and flowers i received this little beauty from michelle,

Bonfire night.......

We took the littlies to an arranged bonfire and firworks display last night , something we dont normaly do, we normaly have a few firworks in the garden but after seeing the notice in a neighborouring village for £5 a family, well couldnt be cheaper so off we went and had to have a lovely burger too, well you have to dont you!!
after taking a million and one pics trying to get the occasion, i came up with these, i love the colour glow from the fire, which was huge and very warm lol
Jakey loved the fire to start with but soon got bored and went off to watch people with sparklers, Mia was mesmerised by the fire and couldnt take her eyes off it!

then the fireworks began, jakey wasnt quite so impressed with these as they were too noisey for him but he did enjoy them and i think loved the journey home the best seeing all the fireworks going off from the safety of the car lol

Very sad........

At the minute our house is feeling very sad, and it has taken me a week to write this post, last friday, and very unexpected we lost our friend and family member Baldrick, he was just 9 years old and such a character, he was part of the family and had been with us since he was 10 weeks old, he had been having arthritus problems for a little while but had become very poorly last thursday during the night, at first thinking it was his legs again after having a bad time a month ago , it soon became clear this was something much more serious, arriving at the vets upon opening, it was clear it was bad and an hour later we were told he had a massive tumour and wouldnt survive surgery it was such a shock and just blew us all away, we had to let him go with very heavy hearts but with us all around him, we said goodbye
he has left a gaping hole and after not knowing how to tell our grandson jake , his mummy did a great job and after arriving home on saturday afternoon the first time seeing jake since we lost baldrick, jake took my by the hand, took me to where baldricks bed should have been and told me that we wouldnt be seeing baldrick again because he was fast fast asleep
what more can i say
not a lot because i am having trouble typing through the tears

night night Baldrick sleep tight x x
