I Bet You Did'nt Know!

Seven things about me!
1. I once played clarinet live at the Albert Hall in front of Prince Charles.
2. The sewing machine i use is called a Delta and is an Aldi own brand!....I seriously need to upgrade like YESTERDAY!
3. I have been with Neilyboy for 7 and a half years but we broke up for 5 months and The Whirlwind was conceived the night we decided to get back together!.....Thats fate for you!
4. I have a belly button phobia!....I CAN NOT STAND anyone touching my belly button. I spent the last few weeks of my pregnancy having panic attacks that mine would pop out!.... Just thinking about it makes me feel sick!
5. I had my ears pierced when i was 9 days old!
6. I was born in Belize CA , moved to Germany when i was 3 and didnt move to the UK till i was six year old (army brat!) I have only been back to see my homeland once and that was 14 years ago....this is my saddest confession!
7. I am a serious SI-FI / Fantasy geek......Oh BUFFY how i miss you!....And don't get me started on Lost!

Can I just say that this week has been 'THEEEEE SLOWEST WEEK EVER!!!!!' Neily-boy has been working away in Malta since Sunday, and was due to come home tonight, but thanks to ........'That Damn Volcano' .....His flight has been cancelled till late Monday night!
It has been Easter break which means that all the yummy mummy's who would normally frequent my shop (virtual workplace!) have funny enough! Not fancied popping in with their 10billion offspring! This has all resulted in long boring empty days ,followed by long boring empty evenings!
My Neighbour who i love....Lisa you rock!..... moved house today...Not so rock'in!.... So now i feel totally on my own!....On the plus side....Mussels in garlic sauce for dinner tomorrow!

Fish supper!

Neilyboy DOES NOT. WILL NOT eat fish. He cries like a baby when i even attempt to cook it in the house, because apparently even the smell of it makes him want to hurl....... Although he has no problem polishing off a packet of prawn cocktail crisps or eating prawn crackers!...go figure!

Neilyboy is away with work till Friday!

This is what The Whirlwind and I will be having for dinner for the next 2 nights!

Grilled Salmon, garlic new potatoes, asparagus tips and baby stem broccoli
Yummy, yum, yum, yum, yum!
Good times!

The Girls!

I have a group of friends....The Girls!.... There are 9 of us, Some i have known for 12yrs, some for 25yrs. Some live 2min's down the road, some 2hrs, and 1, Dutt's.....well she went and moved all the way down under.

Its not very fact its so rare that i cant even remember the last time, we were all in the same room together? Was it in 2007?, last time Dutts was home? Before that who knows! Hen-do's, weddings, and baby showers tend to be the only dates that most of us are able to coordinate time together.

Dutt's came home from Oz for 5wks, and can you believe that sadly we still were not able to all get together in that time. We organised 2 dinners, one I was the only one absent for and the other Ali was the only one absent, so very nearly a full set!

Ginge & Me

Nina & Kate

Sarah & Sarah aka Dutt's & Bish

Sam & Kerry

I love these girls, all of them! Some i speak to everyday, some once maybe twice a year when we get together. They know all about me, all my dreams, all my drunken 'Oh My God did i really do that?' stories...most of them were there to spur me on at the time, downing the shots with me at the bar, reminding me exactly what the random bloke i gave my phone number to looked like! Its thanks to them that i have ended up 'married' to one (Neilyboy xx), although they did nickname him Boris as none of us could actually remember his name at the time!

They have laughed with me, at me. Seen me cry, and cried for me. Hugged me when i didn't want it, Held me when i needed it.

I have loved growing up with these girls, watching them fall in love, get married, get pregnant, have babies......Not always in that order, and not all of them have done all of those things yet! Some don't want to, some are desperate to, and some just need to cut their ties and move on!....(you know who you are!) and i look forward to seeing how it all turns out, for all of us.
We are all so different in so many ways and all lead very different lives, yet we always slot right into stride with one another when were together.

Dutt's and her family flew back home on wed, and over the Easter weekend before they left, her parents invited us all over for a party. 5 of us are mummies now and so far we have 9 children between us.

There was an Easter egg hunt for the kiddie winks.

New friends- Roo and the Aussie boys

A smoking room for the 'Men' they could bond over football and stuff!

Lots of gossip for the girls

A 1yr old girls birthday to celebrate

9, soon to be 10, and hopefully much more, beautiful baby's to enjoy.

And 5 Yummy Mummys (+Ginge x)

I LOVE THESE GIRLS. and i cant wait till next your home Dutts (another 3yrs?) because next time 'WE WILL ALL' get together in the same room at the same time!
