We paid a visit to our daughter in Leicester on Saturday...
Andy joined in a game of football tigs with Charlie, Jim and Ricky... what did Andy do but kick the ball into...well, into Charlie's very important place!!!
Fortunately, it didn't seem to affect Charlie's affection for Andy!
We went to Fosse Park to pick up a little shopping, Laura-Beth and Charlie travelled in our car, Charlie brought his CD and they sang all the way...with actions too! When he started singing, it made my heart swell - it took me back to the days when our own children used to sing at the top of their voices whenever we set off on a car journey - a truly happy sound!
I love this little man. He's decided he wants to grow his hair so I'll let you know how that turns out!
On Sunday night we went Northern Soul dancing at the Metrodome in Barnsley, met up with Dyan who got up to a few antics - not unusual eh?
One thing that amazed me was this 12 year old young dancer... I couldn't take my eyes off him all night - he had come along with his parents and he was dressed in "all the gear" If you're a Soulie and went to Wigan Casino, you'll know what I mean - baggy trousers and t-shirt. I wish you could see him dancing, it took me back 34 years - backdrops, spins and all!! Brilliant!
I just love this 'photo of Karen - Martin is looking at some old photo's of us all when we were young - I think she was laughing at what Martin looked like with hair!
Andy dancing... this is our new fitness regime - we are eating healthily and increasing our exercise in the hope that we both lose weight for our daughter's wedding next May - less than 51 weeks to go and we've set ourselves a target of losing one pound a week...watch this space!
Here is May all filled for my art calendar... at the beginning of the year, Kate set a challenge for any who wished to join in...not just an ordinary challenge .... a 365 day challenge! In the form of an art calendar. Well I love messing about with paint and I like keeping record of what I've been up to, so I was in!
and here is June, just about ready to go... nice and bright and summery...I used texture paste and a stencil to make a flowery border. I painted the flowers orange, they don't look very bright here but I'm sure you get the picture.
I shall probably faff about some more but at least I'll be able to fill in those scrumptious little journal blocks starting tomorrow!
