A Rollercoaster of a Week

What a week, that's all I can say. So many ups and downs in such a short time.
Dad arrived on the 24th Oct. We greeted him at Heathrow as a surprise. He didn't know we were going to be there. We met my sis at 7am in Terminal 4, we had my brother too, my hubby 2 kids and my sis with her hubby and 3 kids. Dad hadn't seen the baby of the family as my sis hadn't had her when Dad left last year and baby is now 13mth, so that was really special too.
The kids were very patient standing with their banners waiting : )
It was so good to see him arrive. We've all had the most amazing week together. We've visited our hometown Oxford, we had a Christmas Day, we've had nice walks, breakfast out, a visit to the zoo, been trick or treating, played loads of games, it's just been so so much fun. We were all devastated when Dad left on Sunday. Each year I'm sure it gets harder rather than easier and takes me longer to pull myself together.

Onto something more cheery now.....these gorgeous men : )

The middle one in particular. Billie Joe Armstrong. Isn't he just the most gorgeous man ever????
(Sorry Ade, but I know you understand) Ade and I went and saw Green Day at the O2 on 24th Oct and it was just the most amazing concert ever. I'm so pleased that Ade enjoyed it as it's me the one that's the big Green Day fan. I think Ade loves them almost as much as me now (maybe not entirely in the same way) It really was such a good show and we had great seats too. I feel even more besotted than before. I've been following this band since 1994. It was my first visit to USA. Dad had just moved there and Green Day were played loads on MTV. I ended up getting a copy of Dookie to bring home and have loved them ever since.
They announced a couple more gigs in UK next June. Presale tickets go on sale today at 3pm. We are so hoping to get tickets for the Wembley Stadium show. Fingers Crossed xx

And now onto scrapping. Something that I haven't done much of recently. I need to get myself back into it. It's only just been over a week, but feels longer.
In the meantime I have this LO to show that's the new challenge over on The Studio.

The lovely Shimelle is this months Special Guest. Pop along to join in with this months challenge which involves a sketch and some bling and see what everyone else has come up with.

Lots of Love xx

I've been thinking of you, wondering how you were getting on. Glad you had a good time, but feeling for you with all the upset.

Love that leg hugger layout. It's really fun.
