Rosie’s 17th Birthday Party

Hello my wonderful gals…

We have had a busy week in preparation for Rosie’s 17th Birthday party yesterday!  Gosh doesn’t time fly!…She will always be my baby though!…

In preparation I have updated the blog (2010) with these new photographs of her, as the other blonde piccy was taken when she was 14, so it was definitely time for an update! and what with her training to be a hairdresser, she now has black hair! well why not eh! luckily she has one of those faces that suits any hair colour! Lucky gal!

We had a family party in the garden to celebrate her birthday, as we have been having such beautiful weather lately we decided to have a barbecue, so we decorated the garden with mismatched tables and chairs along the side of the caravan and how wonderful everything looked. (lots of alcohol! tee hee!)

Heres my lovely Freddy…hello there! he has been sunbathing in the garden, since we have had the sunshine and he has a lovely colour! I am so jealous!

We had a right old giggle!…there is not many of us in our immediate family as Freddy and I are only children, so we have no brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews to invite…but we have a great time when ever we all get together!

(scuse the emergency chairs!) LOL!

…and below is my lovely son Daz with Rosie, he is 20 now! I know! I can’t believe I have proper, grown up kids, as I only feel 18 myself sometimes!

Daz is also an intelligent, witty, fun loving member of the family, he is having a break from uni atm and I am not sure that he is going back there either, I don’t think that Uni is the right place for him as he is a free spirit!…and like my Rosie, I prefer them to go their own way…I believe in an alternative education anyway! so we’ll see how he gets on eh! Bless! (oooh I could just pinch their cheeks in this piccy!) 🙂

I am so proud of both of them…and they are sooo close, what more could a Mum want!

Oh and heres Rosie and Daz’s Grandad…you would never think he was 70 would you! (I know…I agree with you too, I think he might be lying about his age!LOL! he definitely looks more like 50 to me)

Sorry about the LARGING it size of mayonnaise in the piccy!!!

    What fabulous birthday celebrations!! I was at uni about 2 months before I left as studying wasn't for me, I wanted to work and earn my own money (now all I want to do is study and not work!!!).Victoria xx
