Hello there .. it is me .. remember me!!

Hello Everyone ...

Well where do I start ... it has been so long and so much has happened and I would bore you all if I were to even remember it all!

Lots of exciting developments and much fun has been had .. I will try to remember some of the best bits!

Ethan and I had a fab time up at my Nanny's, the weather was great and we had loads of fun hanging out in the garden, picking veggies for tea and collecting worms. It was really nice to spend some quality time with her and Ethan loves her to bits, I love seeing the two of them, they are v sweet together.

We also hit the shops in Inverness and I got loads of new bits for Ethan and stuff for my holiday, as well as some divine chocolates for my neighbour Sandra who looked after the cats for me (she was so touched by the chocs bless her, so I have arranged for her to look after them again when we are away in Sept and Oct ... don't you just love good neighbours ... everybody needs good neighbours ... with a little understanding ... oops sorry, a little off track there, ha ha!!). We went for a yummy, fab, meal for my birthday. I had THE MOST delicious fillet steak .. lovely and bloody and was like cutting through butter, Yum. Plus Ethan shocked me by eating an entire 3 courses!!!!! I certainly think he has turned a corner with regard to his eating, he finally seems to be through the fussy eating phase, which is an huge relief! We are going back to Nanny's for a week in October, so will go out for another meal then .. am dreaming about that steak, lol!

We took Nanny up to Debbie and Geoff's when we got home as she has never seen their new house, and we all oohhed and ahhhed over the nursery. They are going to make such great parents, I am so happy for them and immensely proud of my brother. Because I am such a lovely sister in law, I am helping out Debbie by giving her some hands on childcare practice, as she is going to have Ethan for a few days when I go away, ha ha, bless her .. hopefully all Ethan's 'fight play' wont make the baby come early!

It was my brother's 30th Birthday party on Saturday, well what can I say ... I am the Singstar champion, or so I thought at the time ... also I was doing my best sexy dancing (thank god I can't remember that bit, lol!!) We didn't leave until after 4am and lets just say I was feeling a bit 'delicate' the next day! (I did find out whether i am having a niece or nephew tho ... but I am not telling!!).

Had a lovely day out on Friday, went to Edinburgh with Ethan and then Joanne and I went shopping for holiday bits and then for a lovely meal (where we wrote lists out on napkins as we couldn't find any paper hee hee!). Jo looked stunning in all the slinky dresses she tried on, watch out men of Petra ... grrrr!!

It is only about 2 weeks until we go away, I am soooo looking forward to it. I seriously need to get cracking on the sit-ups though .... since I lost a stone when i was ill, my tummy has turned to jelly .... do you think the 'Simon Cowell' looks works well with a sarong?!

I also have some exciting work developments in the pipeline ... it is going to such a busy few months, I will defo need to holiday to chill out before it all takes off.... so watch this space, I will tell more soon.

Right, I have so much more to say and loads of photos (one of my particular favourites is from our trip to Inverness. We got a shopmobility wheelchair for Nanny, however Ethan also enjoyed it, sitting in her lap the entire time, so I pushed the two of them around the Eastgate centre for 6 hours!) but I need to get to bed.

Sorry it has been to long (especially sorry to Katy, I promise to be better at updating!!).
Night all
