Ok, yes I know, it’s almost Easter, but here is the final edit of “An Ashridge Crimble” starring Sam, Mummy, Daddy, the Ashridge Three, and a large stack of presents. Sort of topical because today is my birthday and I got to open presents today too!
From my lovely husband I unwrapped a cool new lens for my digital camera. I have no idea what to do with it, but it’s fab! Apparently it’s a portrait lens and will mean lots of great photos *cough* in our future. I really need to get to grips with the manual functions of my camera, this is going to be a good incentive to do so.
I also got a great book about Japanese master monster director Eiji Tsuburaya. Some fantastic pictures in that.
From Mum and Dad I opened a parcel full of summer maternity clothes. Yeah! Now I need the weather to warm up, and for bump to fill them out a bit more so I can wear them.
One of the nicest surprises though was a card from Fran and Don containing a few photos of Sam. One of which is of Sam and Bill curled up on the sofa together at their house, fast asleep. Awwwww.
Had a really rough night with Sam last night, he did an awful lot of crying and screaming and wanting his mummy to cuddle up with him in his little toddler bed. Not at all comfortable. Poor Bill got to deal with him when I got frustrated in the early hours and is probably at work feeling very much like a zombie husband right now. I’m sorry babe.
If Sam seems up for it this afternoon I think we’ll try to venture out to a playground later. I also want to go on a birthday marmite hunt and try to score myself some. Hopefully I’ll make some cauliflower cheese for tea and Bill will be providing birthday cake and candles. 😀
And now I’m going to celebrate with a Cadbury’s Creme Egg for breakfast.
