A big event over the holiday was this young man becoming an 'official' teenager (of course he has thought of himself and acted like a teenager for ages! ;) ) For his actual birthday he just wanted to sit around all day, play on his new games on his xbox with his friends and have Pizza for supper so that is what he did, as you can see from the photos he didn't even bother to brush his hair the whole day!
He has wanted to go to Alton Towers for ages and we have never gone because it was just sooo expensive but he put it down on his birthday list and said that was all he wanted, he didn't even need any other presents. So of course now that we have moved to the other side of the country from it instead of being 40 minutes away we decided to take him, but... of course we did still get him a few presents :)
These are a few photos from the day but have you ever tried taking photos of people on rides these days! They all go so fast and I kept taking photos of other people.... but I did get quite a few in the end although I won't bore you with all of them! This is the Nemisis and turned out to be one of his favourite rides, how I don't know because OMGosh does it go fast and it goes really close to the edges, just crazy! We then went on the Nemisis Sub Terra and wow that was scary! I laughed the whole time whilst screaming my head off and trying not to pee my pants :D The worst part is they are all secretive about it so you have no idea what to expect but it was a pretty scary experience that wreaks havoc on the senses lol.
Another big favourite was Air but I didn't manage any photos of that one! This was Blade which is pretty standard but still fun!
Speaking of birthdays, it was also my wonderful Daddy's birthday recently and this is the quick card I made him using Bo Bunny Surprise!
I haven't done much crafting but that was one item and I did a couple of other small items with/for friends that I will share in a couple of days. I have a busy day tomorrow and my parents are arriving for a month's visit from South Africa (yay!) but I will also get around to some blog hopping tomorrow night which I have not gotten around to very often recently either!
