Older and wiser?

Ah, another year older...

Two weeks ago I celebrated my 33rd birthday, even though a couple of months ago I had been convinced that I was coming up to my 32nd  (I blame being pregnant and not drinking on my 31st, I think maybe that meant it didn't count as a birthday!)

I always like to celebrate a birthday in along with a few friends we decided to go out on the town in Agia Napa. Being "Napa" we thought it would be fun to dress up just to help the celebrations along. 
Three of the the party girls!
We started off in a karaoke pub, Sam (the one in purple) is a HUGE karaoke fan and is a bloody good singer. I couldn't even tell you how many times she got up to sing, and that's through losing count as opposed to too much beer. I on the other hand would love karaoke if I could sing....or was quite drunk.......

Sorry Mum, drinking pints again!
ruined sang "Like a Prayer" by Madonna. Spurred on by that success three of us then sang "Holiday". The highlight (for me, maybe not the other people in the pub, but hey they're all be home by now) was singing "Hold On" by Wilson Philips, which is possible my all time favourite song. Not one I would have considered doing but good ol' Sam got up to do it and I got a bit over excited and joined her!
At some point, I guess about 1am we left the pub and went to Car Wash a club I have been waiting to go to for a very long time! In fact I wanted to go there that much it was even on my 101 list. From this point things do become a little hazy....there was drinking, singing, oh and some dancing on the bar! 
Look at the haze....smoking indoors (clubbing as it should be , lol)

I'm not 100% sure if we left as it closed but I do know it was 5.30am when I got home! Luckily AJ was on Leo duty and I didn't actually surface until gone lunchtime. My actual birthday was on the Monday - as you might expect I had a very quiet day and not even a drop of alcohol. I may be another year older but wiser???  Not so much! 

(It was worth every second of the hangover though!)


  1. Looks like you had a fab night! Happy birthday!

  2. Pints - I expect it was two for the price of one and they just put it in a pint glass!!! I love a bargain!!!!!

  3. Ha ha ha! Chuckling to myself here! Looks like you had a fantastic night, and great fun clubbing. You must have good stamina girly.

The one with the massive flashback

Facebook drives me mad a lot of the time, not mad enough to not live on it constantly of course (It's not that I *want* too, I HAVE to because of my work, well that and I'm far too nosy not to!)  It's full of rubbish a lot of the time, but also lots of little gems, funny things and random links that are a major time suck but so addictive. Every now and again though it throws up a gem, or in this case inspiration for a blog post... Recently I saw a link to an 80's nostalgia website and this particular post was all about the 'Come and Praise' hymn book that surely every 80s kid held in their grubby little hands once upon a time. (I couldn't find the original post, so I'm making my own!) We used this book every morning in assembly throughout my primary school years. They were kept in a box and handed out at the door as we left the classroom to go to the 'Big Hall' for assembly.  There were many very battered copies in the box and a few b

20 Questions - Interview with a 3 year old.

I came across a great idea on Pinterest a while ago where you ask your child a series of questions each year on their birthday staring at age 3 and then you can see how their answers change over the years.  I asked him the questions over a few days as and when he decided to cooperate and answer them - to most of them the answer was first 'I don't know' which is what he responds to everything at the moment even if he knows so I had to try a few times to get an answer out of him! Now he keeps asking me the questions too! 1. What is your favourite colour?   Light blue (this changes each time you ask him!)  2. What is your favourite toy?       Thomas   (the tank engine)  3. What is your favorite fruit?   Grapes 4. What is your favourite tv show?   Thomas  5. What is your favourite thing to eat for lunch?   Ham and salad cream ( sandwiches )  6. What is your favorite outfit?     Boys will be boys (t-shirt, doesn't care which shorts!)  7. Wha

My best Slimming World recipe EVER! - Cheesy Meatball Pasta Bake

Since going back to Slimming World at the start of January I've been making an effort to try some new recipes and keep varying my food every day. Although there is an endless choice when it comes to what you 'can' eat with Slimming World, like anything it's all too easy to fall into a habit of eating the same things day in and day out.  I have many SW cookbooks as well as a folder with lots of recipes that I've collected from the magazine over the years, I've actually made very few though! Last week I decided to try a new one out, and I wish I'd made it sooner! Cheesy Meatball Pasta Bake was a massive hit with the whole family and possibly one of the best main Slimming World meals I've ever made! You need... For the meatballs - 500g extra lean pork mince 6 finely chopped spring onions Dried herbs ( I used about a teaspoon each of basil and oregano) 1tbsp Worcestershire sauce 1 tbsp tomato puree For the sauce - 1 finely chop
