May is here!

It is May can you believe it? Where has this year gone? it has positively flown by. I remember my mum saying that time got quicker as you get older and I never really believed her but now I do! Is it because we are so much busier as we are older with so many different responsibilities? hmm not sure what do you think?

I didn't manage to get any sewing done this weekend, I was so busy with a youth convention that I was required to attend as a result of me being a Young Womens leader (If you have no idea what I am talking about go  here  and it will hopefully explain some things for you). I really am so very blessed to be able to spend time with these outstanding young women (girls aged 12-18), they teach me so much and they are such fun to be around.

Heather had her little girl this week so it was such a good job that Elouise Elephant below got finished last weekend so I can pop over to see them this week as long as little Adora comes home from hospital. At 2kg she was half the size Sophie was born. What a fatty I had :)

Did you watch the Royal Wedding? I had intentions of just having it on in the background but that went out the window, friends were here and pizza was ordered and we watched so much of it. I remember watching Charles and Diana's wedding and so we watched this one too. What was your favourite part or parts? Didn't everyone look amazing, well except for some of the cousins eekk perhaps some assistance from a stylist may come in handy. The princes in their uniform looked fantastic and 'the dress'! Wow, very Grace Kelly but so beautiful and simple but definately not plain. Todd was rather taken with the bridesmaid Pippa Middleton apparently she looked 'amazing'!! The girls loved watching it and every time we told Olivia to go to bed she said I want to see them kiss so they saw the kisses and then off to bed. Maybe she will will remember seeing a girl become a princess when she is older too. But I do hope that this marriage ends up being a whole lot happier than the other time I watched a girl become a princess.

We are back to normal routines and hopefully that normality will bring me some more time to make some things. Fingers crossed, as there are birthdays swiftly approaching.

Here is a picture or 2 of Olivia and Sophie. Liv's hair has gotten long and has discovered pigtails. Doesn't she look gorgeous? Very cute my big girl, and then a picture of the 2 of them together. They were just sitting at the table hence the big red chairs.

Cheeky monsters the 2 of them, but having fun none the less.

Have a fantastic day today x
