A Fourth Birthday

and a giveaway winner

Hello. I feel like my posts are getting increasingly sporadic as the end of the school term approaches - I apologise. Life is full of end of nursery and school activities, birthdays, anniversaries, revision and a constant feeling that I have forgot something!

I’m just popping in today to announce the winner of the Pearl Lowe Vintage Craft Book giveaway and share some photos from Lulu’s 4th Birthday…

Thank you to everyone who entered. There were 18 entries and the winning comment picked by random.org is:

Congratulations Mim, I have emailed you for your address. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I have :)

We had a lovely day Saturday celebrating Lulu’s 4th birthday. The day was full of sun, friends, family, food, cake and laughter - it was really lovely. I can hardly believe that 4 years have passed so quickly and that she will be starting school in September. I’m trying hard to make the most of the time I have left with her at home. I have a feeling I will be a bit lost in September.

So here she is on her special day my cheeky tomboy. I thought I was being quite clever when I told her that I had bought her a special ‘pirate’ skirt to wear for her party (lulu refuses to wear skirts). However, it backfired quickly when I collected her from nursery on Friday (the day before her party) to find she had told all her friends she was having a pirate party *gulp* and they should all dress up!

So on Saturday we had a very un-piratey pirate party for Lulu in the garden where we played lots of un-piratey games and ate some very un-piratey food!

Happy Birthday lovely, happy Lulu – we love you lots. You and your gaggle of imaginary friends (‘the boys’) make me smile every day.

Bye for now. Em xx
