Sorry…..

Sorry for the lack of regular posts of recent times but I’ve been majorly busy preparing for University.

Unlike the usual 18 year old undergraduate, I’m a 30 year old undergraduate that has to haul not just her bedding and set of Ikea saucepans to University, but her entire life!
Major busy-ness indeed!
Posts may be all over the place for the next couple of months until I have settled into my new life!

Talking of Ikea, I’m actually off to the mothership tomorrow! Majorly excited!
Probably too excited……

My Birthday Party!

20140709-203704-74224851.jpg

So can you guess from the pic of my cake what my theme was?
My cousin made this awesome cake for my Mad Hatter themed 30th birthday party!

I managed to wangle the use of some gorgeous private formal gardens for the event!
The weather didn’t let me down and the garden practically decorated itself with its flowers! I only added bunting and the odd plastic flamingo!

I had dainty sandwiches, cupcakes and a pic n mix sweet/candy buffet too!
To add to the theme we drank gin and tonics from beautiful paper teacups!
There was prosecco and birthday cake for all!
We all indulged in a few rounds of croquet too!

As people left I handed out some hand crafted party favours that I put together!
I Couldn’t have asked for a better welcome to my 30’s!

Look at all the Bicycles!

So the Tour De France passed through our neck of the woods on stage 3 of the event!
Such an awesome atmosphere and our good old British Police Force were on form!
They waved to us, hi fived kids and set their sirens off!
The French police were, shall we say, a little more reserved! Bah!

Before we knew it the Velos had passed and it was all over!
Nice to be a part of history though! 🙂

Book Launch Party

So yesterday I headed off to London for the book launch of Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens.
It was based in the children’s department at Waterstones in Trafalgar Square.
The theme of the party was a midnight feast with plenty of ginger beer!
Everything had the feel of a good old fashioned Enid Blyton book! 🙂
I cannot wait to get stuck into this book which has been described as Poirot for kids!
You can get a copy here!
