Belle was NOT in the mood as we set off early afternoon until we arrived and went straight to the local park where every momma and child was out soaking up the fact "we could play out"! Jane and I talked cameras and I gave her some help with her Nikon D70. I love my D70 so much (more than the D200) so it was like for like comparison. I took these of my lil lady as she cruised the entire park in her own sweet way, choosing to stop by on various little amusements and never once complained that it was too bright. **warning - overload of belle pictures ahead**
After the park we spent the evening at Janes scoffing a feast of artery clogging yumminess with the kids before Courts and Kat dozed off from tiring themselves out. Belle was wide awake as always and we decided to stay for BB. Then BB turned into Wii. Belle has never played on one before and its looking like a Wii purchase is coming on. She was thrilled with it although I did take a pasting from Jane on the Tennis courts. Of course that was down to Janes incessant practice on the game where as I had only just mastered the handy heldy thingy. I didn't want to leave at erm, midnight! Neither did Belle. But its always a sign of a good day when you don't want to leave.
I have one hundred and forty seven things to organise before Friday. As I am a list maker at heart, Ive gone onto two pages of things to do. I wish I could prioritise more effectively as everything has a top priority right now. The bit I'm looking forward to most is a Christmas project for Quick and Crafty Magazine which will be my 3rd piece for them. I love this magazine so much. Its a vibrant monthly with so many cool things to make and do. Ive also got work coming out in Crafts Beautiful in Sept, Oct, Nov and Dec. I remember years and years ago reading this mag thinking that I would love to make something for it and now that I can - well, its surreal and humbling and enormous fun to be a part of the team.
Well Im away to finish off a digi kit for Jo to tackle so I may be some time. Toodle-oooooooo xx
**OMG - I cannot believe that Chanelle walked out of the BB house. I saw it coming and she was getting on my nerves. Ive totally gone right off it now. That's one hour spare in the evenings for me now.
**Also - Karen Leese!! Mislaid your phone number, need to chitty chat before friday!!!
