This picture was taken by Alex Holt ( thanks Alex - top picture) at my friend Dianne's 50th Birthday party, Alex is one of Dianne and Phil's two sons, the other being Matthew. I have yet to meet two nicer young men then Matthew and Alex and I hope that when Connor becomes a man he turns out as lovely as them.
Wow that was deep..Alex has a fabby camera and took some brilliant pics of Connor - this is just one of them.

Well I have now finished all the invitations for Mia-ann's 1st Birthday Party which is going to be held at our house. It will be four days before Christmas so it will give me carte-blanche to razz up the house in Pink and white...Ohhhhh I can't wait. I used to put my tree up about the 15th December, but since knowing the Erri's, itnow goes up on the 1st of December so I get to drool over it all month.
Here is a sneaky peek at the image that has gone on the invites....
