Catching up

Me on my birthday, Stuart bought me this dress cos he knows I love these colors

Take a look at these shoes aren't they just gorgeous, pity the nail varnish chipped on my big toe!!!

Jazz wanted his photo taken with mummy!

and China couldn't be left out...
Well so much has happened since my last post. I had my 47th Birthday; went out for a lovely Indian meal at the Calcutta Club in Polhill with Stuart, Jazz, China and Marcus and Debbie. Food was gorgeous and company great.
I received lovely pressies of Lorraine, Sam and Natalie - when I get back to England I will edit this post and put up pictures of my gifts and cards. Marcy from Paper Whimsy sent me a card as did Jo (again pictures will follow) I wanted to pack all my pressies and cards and take them to Spain with me but space would not allow it. THANK YOU to all of you for making my birthday special.
On the Monday after my birthday by door bell rang and it was the flower delivery girl with a beautiful plant and chocolates for me of my lovely son Dwain - that made my day!!!

On Monday Jazz took his driving test and passed so now he is able to take himself off to wherever he fancies and I won't have so many taxi services to run lol.
Tuesday 22nd we left at 4 a.m. to drive to Spain.
Got to the Eurotunnel early so had to wait for train, arrived in France at 7.30 a.m. and hit the road for the long drive down
It normally takes us 17 hours door to door but this trip it took 30 hours, worried that we might not make it when we got to Valencia as the gear box wouldn't find 5th gear so we just took it nice and slow; the trailer on the back with the quad also contributed to the longer journey time....any way it doesn't matter cos at least we got here safely.
I have just been and picked the kids up, they have been out with mates, 1.30 in the morning here so I am going to go to bed - I will post about my 1st few days here tomorrow...take care everyone, hugs Dawn
