It's Party Time!!

Go on! Admit it! You thought I'd forgotten! Well I've been so excited all day but so much to do, little people on holiday and no time for me! But I'm here now! And I'm so glad you're here to join me! Let's party!
A bit of origami is always a good start! We'll need cups for sweeties!
Oh and hats! You can't have a party without hats!
All set? Marvellous!
Time for games! Kim's Game was always a favourite of mine.
Take a peek at this. A good long look....
That's it! Cover it up with a favourite vintage tea towel and how many can you remember?
Did you get all twelve? Ooo! Clever you! Have a sweetie! Now, you need a piece of wool and some blue tac! Go on, close your eyes and stick the tail on the donkey!
HAHA! Did you get the dog?! Or that little boy's nose! (better clean your computer screen now!)
So, next up! Lets play with matches! I love this! 6+5=9. Oh yes it does!
Here are six sticks....add five more to make nine!
Just 5 more!

You can do it!

You see it really does!
Did you get it?! Oh goodie. Time for prezzies now? My Blogiversary giveaway! A Crazy Patchwork heart....
and something scrummy for summer...
..just a little something from me to you, an ice cream brooch in pinks and blue...
Just leave a comment on this blogiversary post to say hello and I'll put all your names in the tombowler hat! As I'm so late today, I'll leave the post up until Sunday so all you lovely readers and followers have time to stop by!
Now, feeling peckish?
Didn't I promise you cake?
In keeping with the season I baked you Norfolk Strawberry Ice buns. No craters today! Hurrah!
Now, blow!
Make a wish!!
Thank-you so much for joining in my bit of fun! I cannot thank you all enough for the welcome you have given me here in blogworld. You are all wonderful and I read every one of your comments even if I don't always have time to reply anymore! I'm working on that! Now, don't forget to say hello and then go have a lovely weekend! t.xxx
Giveaway closed now! We're off to put numbers into the hat! Thank-you everyone for taking part! Winner to be announced tomorrow! t.x

I've been gone so long. Glad I made it back in time for the party. You are such a card! (That's means you're funny and witty.)

Love the new header! No, don't tell me when you changed it. I'm going to go through all of the previous posts until I find it, when I have my morning coffee tomorrow.

I'm also going to figure out how to subscribe, so that I never miss anything again!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! What a fabulous fellow to celebrate with. You had the handsomest date at the party didn't you?

What a fabulous party - it really cheered my up - and loved every bit of it.

The cakes were the best I have ever tasted - and I didn't put on an ounce.

I felt a bit stuffed with all the goodies, so instead of leaving a comment straight away, I just had to go an have a rest.

I am so looking forward to seeing your professional house photos in print.
