Busy Month of May.

So much happened last month this post will be long. Naturally I should have updated all along but ...... !!!!!! First baby Fionn was born on his due date- huge congrats to Breda and Dave.He's the image of his Dad - what's new in the world of new babies - poor Mums don't get a look in! Then my wonderful friend Cathy and Paul got married in beautiful Ballintubber Abbey in Mayo. What a romantic place. We all had a fab weekend up there. Then we had that amazing match Munster v Toulouse. Hubby took off on Friday morning with his friend and flew Cork - Belfast. That evening they flew Belfast - Manchester and stayed with his parents. On Saturday they took a train to Cardiff and celebrated with the rest of the victorious supporters. They took a train to Swansea and stayed the night there and got on the train again next day back to Cardiff to get bus to Fishguard and the overnight ferry to Rosslare. Luckily they met a neighbour of ours on board to get a spin in a car from Rosslare to Cork instead of the bus.Phew- what a weekend. Even crazier for me as you can imagine with my 2 monkeys and no helping hands!!!!! Don't worry.My retaliation is planned as I am heading to the Midsummer Megascrap in Dublin on the 21st June organised by Lainey and Annamarie.So we had to think of lots of activities to keep T& A busy for the few days while Daddy was away. Anna baked cookies and loved decorating them with pink of course.............but she wasn't so keen on the washing up part which I kept telling her was the most important part of baking ( God i sound like my mother!!!)

Here's a few cards I squeezed in-



The weather was so fab recently so Anna managed to crack the art of hopscotch with her buddy Sarah and
Tom managed to learn to ride his bike without stabilisers!!!!Hooray!!
He went on his school tour to Fota Wildlife Park(which is actually only 5 mins from where we live) and the highlight of the tour was the full pack of fruit pastilles I put in for his treat. God love us!!
Here's hoping the weather holds out in June as they love being outside with all the friends and are exhausted in the evenings giving me early nights to get crafting.
24 weeks now so only 16 to go to the new arrival - time is FLYING by.
