Tempus fugit

oh yes time does fly! I really don't know where the time has been going to recently, we seem to go from one weekend to the next, with lots of work inbetween, and not much else!

FINALLY we have some hot sunshine, hurrah!  This past weekend was another fun one... Friday I went to ikea with my Mum & Dad, which included a 'coffee break' in BHS home store cafe - they have the best hot chocolate, so Dad indulged with a cinnamon danish too!

 It was soooo hot that I went for the mango smoothie, YUM

We spent the afternoon and evening in the garden enjoying the sunshine & had a bbq of steak (with garlic butter) and sweet potato chips.  Hubby would bbq every day of the year if he could :)

Movie night was Empire Records (such fun) followed by Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist (Michael Cera AND Kat Dennings, LOVE it!)

Saturday we had our friends over for another bbq and got the paddling pool out for their son, and Dusty.  I think Dusty enjoyed it the most!

Hmm, not sure about this
 Once he'd decided it wasn't a threat, he loved it and kept diving into the water, he was so funny to watch

this is weird, but I like it!
That evening we went to their house to watch this year's Eurovision.  I have to say, it gets worse every year, and not in the good way that it's usually bad.  It seems to get more serious every year & loses some of that kitsch feel.  But we had a great night with great friends :)

Engelbert Humperdinck sung or the UK and we only received votes from 2 out of 42 countries, not good!  Jedward were back again for Ireland & entertaining as usual (they had a fountain on stage!!), the Russian Grannies seemed to go down well, and we thought Italy's entry was a good pop song; but Sweden ran away with it, with a pretty good song.

Sunday was another lazy day making the most of the sunshine...
