|The bonkers Sweetpea family :-)|
Wow that was a bloggy break I wasn't expecting, it seems like ages since I have been able to do a blog post :-( It has been rather hectic here in the Sweetpea household with a family wedding, 3 birthdays and also making some more creations since I have been away - oh that is on top of the school hols :-)
A few weeks back my cousin got married, goodness it made me feel a bit old, I remember the day he was born and when he was little attending our wedding in a cute little suit. Now I am not really a fan of formal events like weddings, christenings etc as I am more of a welly wearing lady rather than a posh shoe lady and I am not really into all the pomp and circumstance of it all (it makes me feel uncomfortable for some reason). I got a bit stressed on the run up to the day frantically trying to find outfits for all the kiddies as all the bloomin summer clothes had been removed from the shops but it was worth the stress as it was such a fun day. Oh how I hate clothes shopping - I only really like charity shop shopping now, probably why I haven't bought myself clothes for ages.
This is me and my gorgeous little sister - can you tell she is wearing heels!
I asked her to do a 'Versace' pose here lol - she is so beautiful but doesn't know it!
This is my parents with my sis and I. I think we all scrubbed up rather well - especially as after all the looking for clothes for the kiddies I just grabbed stuff out of my wardrobe for the day. At the beginning is a blog of the Sweetpeas.
Now I am not sure why I was worried about this event being very formal with my family involved in it, we are not renowned for being the most sensible family :-) Above is a photo of middle Sweetpea and Great Grandad Sweetpea with my Sister's tash bag, this went round the room for everyone to have photos taken with it. There was also a pair of plastic glasses with a willy nose doing the rounds too - goodness knows who bought that with them but the photos are very funny indeed :-)
The next day was Eldest Sweetpea's birthday. I was off work as I was feeling ill (not drink related I might add as I was the driver back from the wedding) so we all chilled out for the day. I hadn't planned a party for the day of his birthday as I was meant to be at work so we were going to have a party later. Well Sweetpea got bored and was playing up a bit so I said he could go out with his mates (rather than sending him to his room on his birthday) and this is the result, a broken wrist! I wish I had sent him to his room now :-(
Poor dot was in goal playing footy with his mates, a ball was kicked at him to save only to push his wrist right back. We were called from his mobile and rushed to get him, we initially thought he has pulled a muscle but then when he went into shock I drove him to A&E (well two A&E's as one didn't have the x-ray machine on !) as there was obviously something more wrong. He had a buckle fracture on his wrist and now has a funcky blue cast on which we can take off ourselves in about a weeks time so he needs it on for 4 weeks all in all which isn't too bad.
I finally got to make his cake quite a few days after his actual birthday and he didn't have a party in the end :-( He did however love his fishing cake complete with his dog ted in the back of the boat and he got enough birthday money to buy a really good BMX bike that he wanted.
He has gone off to secondary school today - this boy is growing up far to quickly for my liking. How can I have a child who is at college when I am so young myself (I am 25 in my head :-)). He seemed very happy going off, not too nervous at all which is wonderful, I hope he loves his new school. I managed to sneak a little kiss on him before he ran off for the bus, he is nearly too old for kisses :-( Little Sweetpea and Middle Sweetpea are under strict instructions not to grow any more :-)
