that's me. Can you believe we went to a 10th Wedding anniversary party on saturday. It was a themed party him indoors went as a Mod and I went as a punk but did either of us think to take photos of ourselves? Well no but a few friends were roaming around with cameras so fingers crossed someone will have managed a not too blurry drunken shot here and there. :D
Yesterday was St David's Day and being Welsh that should be a big deal for me but due to the fact that we had people round to our house after the party finished it meant I didn't actually get to my bed until the birds had started their morning song. So yesterday was spent lying on the sofa dozing. Thankfully my small people were happy to potter around and lie down with me.
Today marks 7 years since me and the smalls packed up all our belongings and moved up to Scotland (him indoors moved up 6 months beforehand) Wee one was only 1 and big one 7 when we moved up. Now even though I call them my small people they are growing up so fast and into beautiful young ladies. Big one made me laugh on Saturday as she was doing my make up for the party (punk style - she researched it online - and I had to explain what a punk was to wee one....kids aren't they great for making you feel old) and wee one was spraying my hair, which I had backcombed to within an inch of it's life and styled into a mohawk, a multitude of whacky colours. Big one said "I really have no way of rebelling do I Mum." Uuumm well as this mum has tattoo's, several piercings, does not do high street fashion and listens to big one's requests for hair styles/colours/piercings (only ears so far) I had to reply "Probably the only way you can rebel if you feel the need to sweetie is to wear a-line skirts and be very conservative." Then off she went to her room to rummage through her accessories to go with my outfit. Later this week we're going to design our own converse and get them ordered. :D
I love the days like that, those are the days that you know you're doing an ok job. ;)
