Big Si's Big Day!

I know its been a week, but I've been a busy sausage! It was Big Si's birthday today and his birthday BBQ yesterday, we had assorted friends and relations here for a little soiree! I wish I'd taken after photos!! but here is a before

Yes that's right - I'd been on bunting duties and Sophers on Flower duty once again! The weather behaved itself and there was even a little sun, it did get a bit cold though...

He got some fab pressies including a fab remote controlled Ferrari from his nieces, nephew's and great niece and nephew's just right for terrorising the poor cats with! He also got a fab Fortnum's hamper and he's looking forward to tucking in!

Here is the Man himself with Bertie about to blow out his cake (well the candles on it anyhow!)

A good time was had by all and there were a few bad heads this morning....
Jenny and I went to the local car boot on Sunday morning before all of the festivities began and we had a great time. I got some fab probably Torquay ware polka dot lovelies, some huge binka like stuff for mum's rag rugs (sorry me no know proper name!), three brand new Kilner jars for jam, some African Fabric for the quilt mum is doing for fundraising for Sopher's next trip and a basket for the aforementioned sophers ... ALL for the princely sum of £7.....What can one do eh???
Oh and lastly a little Sarah's makings update, Sophers being the little songstress that she is, is singing at a wedding next Saturday and she charged me, some would say somewhat unwisely with making her a corsage and matching clutchbag with some of the stash I brought back from the quilt fair. Well... here is some of the stash.....

... and here is the corsage.....


I'm not sure about it yet - she is - but she likes it a bit mad!!! - its about the size of a side plate so it ain't small its all about making a statement - and it most certainly is going to do that!! I hope all are well.... did everyone have a good bank hol weekend????

No bank holiday in the U.S. but I did have a lovely weekend. It was my birthday on Sunday and had a yummy lunch with the family. Next Monday is Labor Day and we'll have a nice long break from work. Love the goodies for 7 pounds. Wish we could find treasures like that! No car boot sales here either :o(

Happy birthday to Si :) I can't wait to go to a carboot this weekend - I don't *ever* get to go because I work on Sundays, but I got this weekend off. Yay.

Thanks for your comment about Indy, it has been a bit of a nightmare at the moment but I am hoping she's somewhere better.
