Sarah's Day

Yesterday was a pretty big day here in the UK.

A day when the whole country came together to celebrate the wonderfulness that is ME Motherhood.

Yesterday was MY BIRTHDAY Mothers Day!

I had a great day and I'm siting here surrounded by my loot.  Chocolates, flowers, clothes, jewellery, bottles of booze, books, some cute little fairy lights in the shape of birdcages, bath smellies, a ceramic heart and driftwood hangy thingy and a bizarre frog with a butterfly net (thanks Big D ...) and a shelf full of cards.

All in all I think I did pretty well and I still have lots of Birthday money to spend too.

It's been a bit of a frantic weekend.  On Saturday SD set off for Wales with a friend to pick up van number 4, seriously FOUR vans, I worry slightly that he might just have lost the plot!

Actually, the one van he REALLY wants to keep has now been sold.  He loves his old Syncro but it's just too old an too tired and, after 2 years of talking about changing it he managed to buy 3 more within a couple of months all before selling the first one.

Well, the Syncro has now gone to a lovely man who flew over from Ireland to pick it up and (fortunately) after test driving the one in Wales SD decided it wasn't for him so that leaves us with just the two which is possibly still at least one more than the average person requires ...

Anyway, as Saturday was my Birthday Eve we had planned to go out and celebrate in style with friends at our local where coincidentally my very favourite local band Snappa were playing.

I shook my tail feathers along to the Blues Brothers and Woo Hoo'd along with Blur, Snappa are SERIOUSLY good - have a listen here ...


That's me at the back just before I skidded half way down the bar on the beer that some strange bloke dressed in a pink jacket I assume he stole from his mother had spilled all down my leg and over the floor right into that really tall bloke twisting my knee in the process so now I'm hobbling around and moaning a lot!

I was also wearing this really cool dress that you can't see but trust me, it is SO COOL.  I found it in a Charity shop a few weeks ago.  It's kind of like one of those paintings you do as a child where you paint one half of the paper and then fold it in half to make a butterfly print in greens and purple and blues, very short (obviously) and with a real punky edge.  If technology was my friend right now I'd take a photo and show you.

I was going to tell you all about the latest stuff I've text to myself but that will have to wait until I've actually worked out what the hell I was talking about but I hope you all had a great weekend celebrating MY BIRTHDAY Mothers Day or just a great weekend doing whatever it was that you did.

Now, go and listen to Snappa - I INSIST!

Isn't technology wonderful, over there and now over here in seconds!! First of all Belated Birthday wishes, sounds like you had a great time, secondly hope your knee is feeling better. I did listen to Snappa but I'm getting "mature" and boring with my music now!! :-)

Happy Belated You Day! Wait though - are you saying this is the fourth van, like you still have the first three vans before purchasing the fourth?
