A Party, Giveaway Winner And A Blogiversary

So Master P's birthday party was a big success the sun shone, and 'Harry' had a thoroughly enjoyable time with his pals whilst I did my best to play hostess. There was lots of fun and games and the sun shone brightly. Of course a party wouldn't be a party without balloons....

Being a Harry Potter themed party there was this poster to greet everyone as they arrived....

And we had all sorts of potions and Harry Potter esque food and drinks....

A Harry Potter party wouldn't be a Harry Potter party without chocolate frogs, broomsticks and owls....

I can't believe my little boy is now 6, where does the time go?

He also picked a winner for my little giveaway and congratulations to Carolyn, whose name was picked out of the hat, your giveaway parcel shall soon be on its way to you. Thanks so much to everyone else for jumping in the hat, I wish you could have all won. We are busy here thinking of ways to entertain ourselves during these summer holidays, and hopefully we shall get an opportunity to get away for a little U.K. break before school starts again. It may just be myself and the children as Mr. P who has had his holiday time with us is back to it and busy working. I think a change of scenery, even if just for a short while is always good for the soul. 

I am also job hunting during these summer months, and with the children at home too it is proving quite a challenge. It is all rather exciting and daunting at the same time. I shall always enjoy making things over at Polka Dots And Posies  and am always flattered that people may want to buy the pretty things I make, but I have found another passion that I would like to pursue so we shall just have to see how it all goes. 

I also seem to have missed my blogiversary on here, gosh I am rubbish aren't I. It shall have been four years since I published that first blog post and goodness me, how the time has flown. I don't know how much longer I shall keep this little olde blog of mine going, but for now I shall keep plodding on. I do kind of see her as my baby, and I don't want to quite give up on her just yet. So many blogs I have seen come and go since I started this blogging journey and in all honesty that makes me a little sad, I miss many people very much....

Anyway I think my belated blogiversary calls for another little giveaway soon. Watch this space ;)
