One of My new blogger friends, Kella has passed on to me a Favourite Photo Meme.

I am absolutely thrilled...Thankyou Kella!

It was Very Very difficult picking a favourite photo because I have thousands

Every photo to me is special!

I Finally decided on the Photo of My Best Friends Son J...

It was a very hot Autumn weekend and We were on our way to the beach to cool off in North Devon!

I would now like to pass this Favourite Photo Meme on to:

Celebrity Big Brother Live Eviction!

I've had a Fabulous weekend...
I am a massive fan of Big Brother and Nick managed to get us tickets for Fridays Live eviction
I made myself a Banner so that all My friends could see where we were in the crowd.
Cousin L also had a Banner.

Master N is Now our Hero


We Queued for Three Hours...



It was cold & pouring with Rain...



Cousin N (on the right) brought her friend Em along
We were so pleased to meet her
And Chuffed to have made a new friend...



We had fun in the queue...




Took lots of photo's...




Had Lots of Giggles...


Mainly because My cousins are Mad...



We were finally let into the studio
How Exciting!




First impression was it that it was much smaller than it appeared on TV
I glimpsed up at The Doors To The Big Brother House...



We found an empty spot under the eviction stairs...
Which was perfect because it sheltered us from the rain...



We were just so excited for the show to start and for Davina to come out on stage...



The three up for eviction was Ivana Trump, Sisqo and Steven Baldwin
It was a double eviction and we are hoping Sisqo isn't one of them...


Master N did an Amazing job of holding up our Banner for us...
Loads of people spotted it and were ringing & texting all Night!





Lots of people had Banners and we were worried ours wouldnt get seen...


Everyone cheered as Davina entered the stage...


She was absolutely adorable...


And so were her boots...


The first to be evicted was Steven Baldwin...
I actually felt very sorry for him as he got seriously booed...
It felt a bit mean


Next to be evicted from the house was Sisqo :-(
I was pleased that everyone cheered

When we got home we watched it on the TV...
And couldn't believe how our Well our Banner stood out in the Crowd...



We Had an Amazing Night...
Really Really Enjoyable and so Much Fun!

Chunky crochet scarf pattern

Ok...I'm not that good at writing down crochet patterns...But i'll try my best with this one.

I use a 7.00mm size hook
300g of any wool

Row 1 - Chain as long as you would like the scarf to be...I did mine long enough so that when finished it will be long enough to be able to fold it half, put it around my neck, make a loop and bring the scarf through the loop.
Row 2 - Three Double crochets into 4th chain from hook then into every chain untill the end. Turn
Row 3 - Two Double Crochets into every previous crochets. Turn
Row 4 - One Double Crochet into every previous crochet, Turn
Row 5 - Three Double Crochets into every previous Crochet...cast off.

Hope Ive explained this ok...If you have any questions just let me know.

The sledge

We decided to make the most of this wonderful winterland and take Courtney sledging...
I am sooooo glad I had crocheted myself a big Chunky scarf.


We set off


It was very cold along the sea wall...
I had tried relentlessly to get Miss C to wear her hat & scarf but she said she wasnt cold...
Brrrrrrr...Why dont kids feel it!


I wonder how cold these people felt in their house boats!




We made our way across the open fields.




It looked breathtaking and we savored every view.






We headed towards the hill.






Everyone took their turn.







Even Papa had a go.


 
Or two.




Miss C loved it.


There were lots of families with the same idea...
sledges in hands with gleeful children...(And Dads, hehehe)


We stopped at Tesco's on the way home.
was great to have the sledge to carry the shopping in.



That was Fun Papa.
Can we go again?

Snowflakes keep falling on my head!

Schools are closed across the whole of the country due to the severe weather
The kids are thrilled and it calls for a snowball fight celebration...
Thanks Girls...
I now look like the Abominal Snowman!!!!


All the neighbours kids were out...


Scooping up plenty of snow for the best defence...



Although I think the best defence was definately
Buckets of Snow!





Hot Chocolate all round...




Nothing beats that warm feeling...Yum!
