It's been a good week
and I'm going to enjoy picking
out the best bits :)
My son, Luke, had his 18th birthday.
Here he is with his caterpillar cake
(another one to go with his
at the restaurant we went to for
a celebratory meal.
He was SO pleased when he realised the
cake was going to be brought out in
front of everyone and that the whole
restaurant would sing Happy Birthday to him
I think he's forgiven me.
Talking of Luke, I'm pleased
that he's fully recovered from the viral illness
that struck him down over the last few weeks.
Here's proof of his recovery -
Luke, on the left, and a friend at a Foam Party.
Foam Parties are a mystery to me
but seem to involve -
lots of foam (required)
as many people as possible to
squeeze into a small space.
He squelched home early the next day!
Hope and I have enjoyed a couple of
girls' nights in, when Grant was at work and Luke
was out doing whatever Luke does.
No action thrillers.
No horror films.
No death and destruction.
No big explosions.
I LOVED Bridesmaids,
far more than I thought I would.
It was very funny and we keep on
saying lines from the films, giggling :)
We drooled over George Clooney in
Well, I drooled,
Hope's too young to drool over George.
This was really worth watching
(after all, it's got George in it, girls!)
And we sobbed over
We loved our movie-fest!
Now the boys are back
we'll be watching
Jean-Claude Van Damme
Matt Damon, etc again.
Rosie Mae had her yearly visit to the vets
and was given a clean bill of health
(she was also given her booster jab).
She has always had a heart murmur,
but I'm glad it doesn't seem to be getting worse
and she's ok as long as we don't over exert her.
I have a new phone,
AND I even know how to use it
(it's touch screen and everything),
but what makes me happy about it
is the phone sock I bought to
keep it safe and warm (!)
I know, how ridiculous is that?!
It's a sock, for a phone, and it's a bunny :D
Grant, Top Husband, always :)
The closing ceremony of
2012 London Olympics
was really enjoyable
(despite George Michael using it to
shamelessly promote his (tedious)
new single, hmmmmmm).
I'm quite missing the happy buzz of
the Olympics but I'm looking forward to the
Paralympics. We've got tickets to the
Wheelchair Basketball and passes to the
Olympic Village. It'll be great :)
Right, I'd better stop there because I
need to go to bed.
I'll post this link with
Queen Virginia who rules supreme
over us Rockettes.
I hope you all enjoy your weekend,
it's going to be a hot one here, hooray -
it's going to be a
summertime and the living is easy
kinda weekend, methinks.
