so i vanished for a few days, i would have blogged earlier but i didn't get home from the TT fair until the small hours of Saturday morning, and i didn't get home last night until late because i was looking after my little cousin Sienna
oh and obviously this blog post is going to be kind of family orientated so if you despise my personal posts. . . now would be a good time to bugger off! i'll be doing a new 'Creative Café' post tomorrow evening so stay tuned for that instead!
so . . .
on friday night i actually left the house and headed into Douglas for the Senior race day firework display
it was a great night since i got to hang out with lots of my awesome cousins at the fair which was EXTRA nice because i hadn't seen them in aaaages
my cousin and little god-daughter Bonnie was there with her little sister Hanna, her brother Robson and her parents Gary and Sharon + my cousins Mandy and Marcus were there with Sienna
the kiddlywinks went on loaaaads of rides and Bonnie even managed to win a massive teddy bear!
they also all went on the old fashioned Carousel
while myself and Mandy looked after 'Diamonds' the teddy!
we all had a good giggle when Mandy and Robson went on 'the Vertigo' as well
as it got darker we made our way down the busy prom to find a spot to watch the show
and to be honest we couldn't have picked a better place to stop! we must have had one of the best views of the display
i took quite a few videos of the display but here's a little one you can watch if you fancy a quick skeet at the show

in other news, i bumped into my friend Yvonne yesterday as well and she gave me a belated birthday present. . . full of the most awesome stuff!!!
there's a lovely embroiderer's guild embroidery kit + embroidery hoop
a 'make do and mend' postcard, a lovely embroidery stitch booklet and a 'Frida' card from Purplecatscorner
there was also this amaaaaazing badge which i love for obvious reasons!!!

so what else?! well i bought myself a new dress yesterday + some pretty flowery headbands
it's the first time i've been shopping in about a month and a half (no. . . i'm not exaggerating! really!!) so i figured i could treat myself to something
* * *
s'all for now, heading off to cook some tea now + sort stuff for college tomorrow, oh what a thrilling life i do lead!
until next time, that's all folks . . . ◕‿◕ ★ xX
