This picture looks a little odd because the house is on it's side. There are 2 reasons for this. 1 - The small person is about and I have to snap it quick without her seeing. 2- Mr Bogert has put it like this and if I move it and something goes horribly wrong I'll be in BIG trouble!
Meanwhile, at Grandma's house (my Nan's) we were playing games and eating bacon sandwichs and then watching the remembrance day parade at the cenotaph on TV. We took a short break for a family (with Mr Bogert, who wanted to look at dolls house doors) trip to Hobbycraft. How much better could the weekend get? Hobbycraft without complaints from the hubby!? So I bought the small person a little wooden tree to decorate and some wool for me which was on sale. Kicking myself though, 'cos I should have bought more and ordered the helium balloons for the pirate party.
Mr Bogert went back to house building and Alexandra and I went back to Grandma's. We decorated the wooden tree with felt pens, sequins and little pom poms. We had a lovely cooked dinner with my nana and grandad, then sat watching The Wizard of Oz. Alexandra has never seen it before and she was totally mesmerised! I wish I'd recorded it now. We also watched The Aristocats. I sat finishing the last of the pirate eye patches for the goody bags at Alexandra's party, and sewing a bit more on the fairy costume.
Before and after
More movies when we returned home. Tinkerbell for Alex before bed, then once she was tucked up "The Oxford Murders" which I enjoyed 'cos I love ones where you can sit there and try and guess who did it and why, and then "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People" which I thought might make me cringe, but was actually ok. Mr Bogert and I laughed alot when Simon Pegg stands up at the 4th July party shouting "England! England! Oi Orlando! You used to be English, come on!" But we might have weird senses of humour ;)
So, I loved my weekend. Craft, shopping, bonfires, good movies, yummy food, fireworks. What did you get up to?
