Darby, Luna, Shopping, Birthday and Tags!!!!

~Hiya all,
~So it's been a busy sort of week, lots going on. Firstly a huge congratulations goes to Jay who starts her new job on Monday - I'm so happy for her :D but I'll miss her when she's not here. I start college in 4 weeks tho so I'll be busier then. I've been thinking alot this week about what course I want to do full time next September - when I've worked some more with my doctor and I'm doing better. Anyway I knew I wanted to do something creative - and there is a local college who does Interior Design - so that's what I'm going for. I have been doing alot of reading online and have bought a House Beautiful magazine for now........... Interior Design just feels like something I would enjoy and could do so it makes sense!!!! So I'll apply next spring and take it from there.

~Anyway other news, Darby Violet, my petite blythe, arrived on Tuesday, and she threw herself into her first photoshoot..........
~Here she is with Madison...........
~And out in the garden, exploring a plant pot.........
~On Wednesday, Jay and I took Darby to Edinburgh for the day - we went on the train...........

~Then we had lunch at Jimmy Chungs, and finally went clothes shopping. Here is Darby posing in the mirror..........
~As you can see she had alot of fun, she's living in the craft room at the moment and awaiting her new dress and hat set!!!

~I have also ordered this 12" doll, a lounging lovely who will be called Luna Rose.............
~She's on her way with lots of clothes, including dresses, tshirts, a yummy fleece, some trainers and some uber geek glasses. I ordered her some jeans on Ebay and they've arrived already - YAY!! So look out for more photos of her.

~On our trip to Edinburgh we popped into this lovely Japanese inspired shop, and I picked up a Blythe purse...........
~I was in need of a new purse, I just had to find one that I loved - and this one suited me perfectly!!!

~I also had the lovely Steph from A Ska Loving Geek make me these corsage pins that I saw on her Etsy shop. So I'm excited for them to arrive too.
~Yesterday was my nephew Robbie's 4th Birthday - I cannot believe he's 4 already, it doesn't seem that long ago that he was born!!! Anyway here he is blowing out the candles on his Spongebob Squarepants cake.........
~And here is Oscar enjoying a slice of said cake.........
~Looks like he's enjoying it huh????

~Sharon and Chris are in the stages of toilet training Kristofer..... so they bought this:

~It talks when the child goes, makes flushing noises and sings alot too - Kristofer loves it and it's really helping him. I had to share it!!!!

~I was given a blog award by the lovely Jocelyn over at Simply Me.............
