Another Year Older...

Well. I'm officially another year older and from now on will have to refer to myself as "over 30". It's been a strange old couple of days round here, but Bank Holiday weekends have a habit of being like that - they throw you for curve.

I had celebratory (commiseratory??) birthday beers (well vodkas actually) round at Karen's on Saturday night with her and Paula. A few swift halves (erm... pints and double vodkas) in the Houghton Arms and back to Karen's for a restrained evening of beverages, canapes and entertainment (erm..... more vodka, breadsticks and tortillas and pogo-dancing to the Wonder stuff till 4am). All good fun :)

I got lots of card (didn't realise I actually knew that many people! LOL) and pennies from most people (to go towards my Craft Robo) and Hobbycraft vouchers from the lubbly Julie (she knows me SO well!). I need to find some time to get down there and get them spent - how I wish Hobbycraft were nearer than Warrington.

I haven't done anything crafty for a while so I'm flagging a bit. I realised yesterday morning that I didn't even put Friday challenges on BW last week. I'm so uninspired that I can't even inspire others. Sad. I noticed that Pencillines are looking for a new design team member. I doubt if I'd enter for that (not even kidding myself my stuff is anywhere near design team level) - but I really did like the sketch for that week so I think I'm going to give that a try. SI mag is doing the Scrapbooker of the year thing again too. I've been at this too long to go in the newbie category - and again I don't think any of my stuff is good enough to go up against the serious talent in the UK that will be in the general category. That said though, my Mother always told me you don't get anywhere if you don't try. Hmmmmm. I think I'll have to see if I can come up with a couple of LOs that I'm happy with and trawl through the albums for a couple of older ones I like.

I always struggle with stuff like this because even after 3 years of scrapping, I still don't think I've found my style.... unless "Eclectic" can be used as a scrapbooking style - because I don't really have one type of look to my stuff. Maybe I need some scrapping soul-searching to try to find my "thang". LOL.

I do need to do a LO about Ewan's new nickname. He's really discovering his voice now - and his first word..... Egg! He just shouts it all the time - it's so funny. So now we're adopting it as his nickname (poor kid - you know it's going to stick forever!) and it needs to be commemorated. It has also prompted many a chorus of "I am the Eggman, they are the Egg men. I am the Walrus" - just how many drugs was John Lennon taking when he wrote that??? Blimey.

Right, that's about enough of my post-birthday waffling. I feel slightly better that I've blogged now - I was beginning to get slacky! Tish!
