time does absolutely fly by!

I can’t belive it’s been almost 3 months since my last post (sorry if there are any avid readers out there, probably not!) I’m now totally stuck in my new job as Production Manager at The Creation Agency, the people I work with are ace and there are a few massive projects on the go – one going live tomorrow – eepps!

Amongst other things over this barren blog period I have:

  • been to 2 great weddings and got some fab ideas for mine
  • had a birthday – which I conveniently managed to spread out for a whole week and eat a lot of cake
  • bought a bike and now cycle to work most days (minimum of 3 times a week – extra money saved from not buying petrol going straight into the wedding fund) The first few times it took about 30 mins but I’ve now found a few short cuts and must be getting better as it’s nearer 20 mins now.  (Don’t worry I take a safe route to avoid the Redway attacker in MK – no scaremongering please)
  • had a fantastic weekend in Skegness on my sisters hen do – highlights include the comedy of  ‘Graham Gold’ providing entertainment for 2 coach loads of grannies  .  Grab a Granny dancing follwed and included one 82 year old who said it was the first time she’d been on a hen doo! bless!  The weather was also very kind to us for a morning at the beach – including a swim in the sea! hen doo pichen do pic 2

Last Sunday we celebrated my Dad turning sixty with a big ‘eating party’ at the Hardwick House.  My Dad is particularly good at providing a lot of selection when it comes to a big family meal or party, I’m already looking forward to and wondering what delights will be featuring on the ‘Menu for Christmas’ which should be up on the fridge in the next week or two…

Anyway, back to the party! The open house policy (1-7pm) was a good plan, until (probably down to the great food and excellent service from the Hardwick children) most people decided to stay all day, and into the night!

The atmosphere was good fun and all of my parents friends, some relatives and us enjoyed a fabulous feast of chilli, goulash, curry, shepards pie and far too many deserts to mention.

As you can imagine, it was fairly chaotic at times but that sums us up quite nicely really – here’s some pics before the party started: (in case you’re wondering it was my crazy brothers idea to blow trout faces!) and yes, we are all scarily like clones of each other!

For his birthday this year (even though its not for another week… it got opened early) I got my other half this Jivebox which so far has been a excellent addition to the music entertainment in our kitchen. Sound is really good for such a little speaker (even over the washing machine) and putting the ipod on shuffle this morning, the fab tune (and one of my favourites) Don’t Stop ’til You Get Enough on the Michael Jackson mix was a brilliant start and had me bopping around whilst making the sarnies. I think this is one of those gadgets that will definitely get used a lot!
