All together

It was Grandad's (my Dads) 83rd brithday Tuesday - so we all had a take away chinese at home. It was so nice to have all the boys here together for his birthday.
and I got snuck up on while I was having a sneaky snuggle on the sofa ....
I'd forgotten that I'm not the only one who sneaks up with the camera when the boys are around.
Then,suddenly and for no reason at all on Wednesday evening - our broadband went kaputt..After me spending nearly all evening trying everything I knew - I received a text message from O2 to say there was a line fault and they were dealing with it.How annoying is that when you haven't got the internet? We were all lost !!
So with the spare time I managed a couple of layouts...
This was using the latest Jenni Bowlin kit...It's Jane and me at Eclectic Keepsakes crop munching one of Karen's yummy cakes..
and this one is using some of the gorgeous yummy Girl's Paperie papers and embellishments and is of Deb and me taken one year apart, look at our changing hairstyles! I wanted to call it something like 'changing hair ' but I just couldn't for the life of me think of a good title-so it ended up being Good Times !
I'm writing this in my lunch hour and it's time for me to whizz back to work now, have a nice Friday,I'll catch up visiting blogs later .

Look at that dining table with all your favourite men around it (except Tom of course!)what a lovely picture.
Great layouts too, you have been a busy girl, no wonder you needed a lie down on the sofa ;-)

I hate being offline! Welcome back - and good use of the time :) (Also, I'm so pleased that someone else was sneaky with a camera!)

Oh these are lovely! I always love to see your paper choices (I fancied that Jenni Bowlin kit myself) and photos of you and Deb.

Happy Birthday to your Dad

Lovely candid photos - and great pages. It's amazing how bereft we feel without the internet ... at least you got a text from O2 rather than an e-mail :P

Love the photo of all your boys together. I can't imagine what it must be like as we are a very girlie orintated house here.

How glorious that you scrapped my little cuppies - it's times like this that make the time spent preparing them all the more worth it.xxx

Great LOs....and I sympathise with being offline-how dependent we have all become!

Not much good can be said normally of not having any internet connection ... but you've proved this isn't the case - such gorgeous layouts, they're amazing.

You made me smile today - we always have a chinese take-away too for my parents birthday, and only week before last, it was my Dad's 80th, and although my mum couldn't be with us this time, we did have a take-away too :)
