So Much News ... Many photos too!!

Hello there!

I have made one wee hanger ... Nope, not much sewing at all ... This was for the kids school bus driver!  We have named the bus the 'Disco Bus' because of the flashing school sign on the back of the bus plus the music is always loud as my kids always ask for it to be turned up!! 

Disco Bus

14 TODAY!! 

What an exciting few weeks we have had! We have had such a fantastic time.  First of all there was all fun in the run up to Laura's wedding.  Then the week finally arrived ... it was a week filled with family, friend and fun!!  

My friend Sarah came over with her family for a week!  We spent one day on a big outing!  We had a ball!!

First stop was Ballinatoy Harbour.  For all you Game of Thrones people you may of heard of this place!  Me .. I have no clue but it was a beautiful place all the same!

On The Bus

Then, the next stop was Giants Causeway!!  Fab fab fab place!! 😍😍

Then to Portrush Beach for a picnic and for some ... a swim in the sea fully clothed!!  😮😮

THEN .... Grandma and Grandad arrived
(aka my mum and dad)


Beautiful beautiful day!
Congratulations to the Bride and Groom!!

Laura you looked GORGEOUS

All the family together

Beautiful flower girls

I think the pictures tell the story!!  I was one proud mama seeing my James walk Laura down the aisle to Johnny!  His speech was fantastic!! 

Such a great week that words cannot describe it!!  It was great to catch up to old friends and meet people I have never met before!  Totally brilliant!! 

Back to the rhythm of sewing now I think!!  I miss it hehehe!!

By for now,
