Phew, i think i need a holiday to get over my holiday, lol.
I had two days when we got back to get the washing and ironing (and the cleaning after leaving my house in the hands of an eighteen year old!) before i went into work again on Friday, Mark was back to work on the Wednesday, he's away working in London, smack bang in the middle of Leicester Square for the next couple of months doing a re-fit of the Odeon Theatre.
To be fair Stevie did a good job at keeping house, it's just that i don't feel back in control until I've done the housework myself, (call me strange, most people do :-)
We threw a little baby shower party for Jenny on Saturday, just a few friends and family but it was fun.
I made tons of cup cakes which Joanne decorated beautifully and i also made some of the famous 'just like millie's cookies cookies which were a big hit, (if anyone want's the recipe just say and i will post it here).
I also made her a cake
I must confess that I cheated with the booty decoration, i bought that from a local cake shop, aren't they cute!
The little daises are just some sugar paper decorations
We bought a pinata , which was a big success and gave us all a good laugh :-)
Jane gave it such a whack that it came flying of the hook, but it still took a bit of bashing before it finally caved in!
I'll leave you with a few photos of the mum to be opening some of her gifts.
You can see some of our holiday photos on a slideshow here, for those who are interested.
That's it for now, sorry no stitching , yet again, but i have ordered a chart which hopefully will be here soon and i can show you, in the meantime i've started knitting another cardigan for the little one (only 4 weeks to go now!!!)
I'm off to get myself set up for watching the much waited for NEW series of Downton tonight, that's Sunday nights sorted for the next few weeks :-)
Until next time x
