The last post!!

Today is my last post ever at A year of 30.
Yesterday i turned 31. So this project of a photo a day for the year i was 30 is now over.

I have really enjoyed this project. I think i only forgot 1 day!
Thank you to everyone that followed me here.
If you liked this project, please follow me at my main blog where from now on i will be doing a weekly installment of what i have been up to. These posts will pretty much be like the posts at this blog.

I had a little pamper me shop. Now i'm in my early
thirties, age is starting to show! eek!! Anyway i bought a few nice products for the face and hair. And i could not resist this one. I am a huge soap and glory fan. Has'nt this one got the best name? Pollyanna would approve :)

'Mum!!! i have made you a picture!!!'
Eldest boy called me into his room, where he had made me a happy face out of magnet balls.

On the way for breakfast we picked up some post at the post office. I like nice post!!!!!

The day after the night before. We went out for my birthday with my Brother in law and our friend. We didn't get in till about 6am. So on sunday i wasn't really thinking about taking photos!!! I did take the pic of me though for Fatmumslims photo challenge:

 The day i turned 31:
My hubbie had to work, but he set up a tray for my son to bring up. 
Happy birthday to me!!

Mother in Laws left over veggie casserole. I just added peas and mash:

Updating my diary:

The postie delivered some lovely books today. This one is actually very funny!!

We were ment to be in Newcastle this weekend for a 21st birthday but my hubbie was still suffering from being off work last week with tonsilitus. So instead we had a lovely but chilled weekend. We went to see 21 Jump Street at the cinema and I found a lovely Iphone case in Paperchase. This is soooooo me.

 Leaving the house, on the way to Breakfast by the sea:

My littlests first time on the Dodgems:

We are enjoying Easter. We have already had 2 days of Easter egg hunts:

Wonderful friends giving me gorgeous ribbons and buttons for my makes always makes me smile:

I had a cream tea for lunch with a friend on Thursday and couldn't resist having a quick look in New Look. I am loving anything British right now:

Apart from a Pilates class, i was in all day Friday sorting out things for my stall on Saturday. I made myself a quick brie, tomato and chutney toastie for lunch - yummy!!!

Leigh on sea vintage and handmade fair - this is a gorgeous fair and has 2 floors. I resisted looking around for myself this time.

We went to see Nero at Brixton Academy on Saturday night and then to Electric Brixton for the afterparty in the early hours of Sunday morning:
