Hi there peeps and hope you are all OK today :)
We are supposed to be having rain but somebody forgot to tell the weather -it's rather nice here at the mo.
OK so it's time for a bit of Papertake malarkey and this week our theme is
The Sound of Music
(or moojic as Kyla used to call it!!).
You can interpret this how you want and there is an array of lovely cardage from the DT so if you get a sec nip over an check it all out. Plus we have not one but 2 prizes up for grabs this week and you have to be innit to winnit.
So what did I do then?
I went for a few of my favourite things and I've been singing this all flamin' morning - it is soooo stuck in my head.
Practically everything on here is a fave of mine, from the suppliers to the colours and of course all the bits and bobs.

Right I better go but before I do (see, there I go in Columbo mode again) I just have to share this.
My sweet little Thea took her first proper steps yesterday and we were there to see it. I was thrilled I can tell you because of course we were there when Kyla took her first steps and I did think we might miss it with this little soul, but no she obliged. And just a few days short of her first Birthday as well - I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone.
Here she is when we went to baby Niamh's Christening a few weeks ago, reading the Mass sheet.
Bless her little heart, she is such a little sweetie and not a single tooth in her head yet - don't you just love gummy little grins!! And as I said to her Daddy last night, here is where the fun starts now that she is mobile because she will be into everything!!
Rubbish pics sorry but I took them on my phone and it was a bit dark in the church.
And I can't leave my Kyla out.
While we were at the Christening, the kids were entertained by a Creepy Crawly man who brought along some snakes, spiders, frogs, giant rats, you name it. My little Kyla is really not a brave kid but she so wants to be. Anyway he told all the kids to bring the creatures round and show the grown ups as they were brave and the grown ups would be scared of them (how right he was in my case). And of course she was scared as well but she really tried and she managed to pick up a tortoise so of course we told her how proud of her we were and praised her to the hilt for being such a brave kid.
And then she came over to us with .....
... this bad boy.
Well of course we (I say we, but it was Emma and I ) could not run away after telling her how brave she was. She doesn't look entirely comfortable here on this pic but believe me, it is nothing compared to how we were looking. Have you ever tried to smile and look convincing while you are absolutely cacking yourself? No? Well it ain't easy I can promise you that. I was so relieved when she too it back to him!!!
You can see where she gets her courage from can't you!!
Stick to the face painting kid ... please!!!!!
Well I really am going now. I'll see you tomoz but until then have a fab day and hugs to all xxx
