oops I did it again

Somehow I missed what has become my weekly posting, this weekend... not that there was a huge amount to be said but here's an update anyway.

On Saturday Hubby and I went to our friends' daughter's birthday party. She turned 1. I don't imagine the little one had too much of an idea as to why her home was being invaded by so many people but she took the extra attention like a true champ. The cake helped, I suppose. I do hope, though, that the poor kid is not left emotionally scarred after seeing her aunty decapitating Tigger with a huge sharp knife as she sliced through the icing figurines to get to the cake. It gave me the heebies... but then I had just been listening in on a conversation two women were having about the haunted houses they had both lived in. Who know there were so many ghosts in Ireland?!
So we - ok, I - gorged on cocktail sausages, sandwiches and crackers with cheese spread, enough to ensure there wouldn't be a need to cook supper later. I think Hubby and the kids were a little peckish by 9pm but I was fine, hehehe! I get to have Saturday nights off as far as cooking is concerned so if they get hungry, well they're all capable of feeding themselves and each other. I should probably mention this latest resolution of mine to them at some point... ah sure, they're all reasonably bright, they'll figure it out at some point.

Sunday morning was glorious. Bright, hot sunshine like we haven't seen in... well so long that I don't honestly remember. We took advantage of this wonderful weather and headed off to the Clay Pigeon Shooting range to bust a few clays. It's something I haven't done in ages but the good news is that I've not completely lost my touch. By this, I mean I hit more than I missed which is always a good thing.
So I haven't been able to move my arms as a result of stiff muscles for the last two days, so what? It was well worth it. Shooting stuff is always a blast.

OK so I've written all this; now for the tricky part... getting it onto the blog without being bust by my boss. Here goes...!

Yeah, those shotguns can get you sore.

I've always wondered if cutting through those character cakes is traumatic.... I remember watching my daughter's face while cutting off Mickey Mouse's ears when she turned three. I've always wondered...

Jason - indeed... and that's just from standing behind 'em..!

Aine - I think you can rest easy. By the looks on their faces the adults appeared to be more traumatised by Tigger's dismemberment than the kids were. There was cake under there, dammit :-)

I reckon Tigger had it coming. I don't trust anyone who's that chirpy.

Kyknoord - Aw, not Tigger, Dude! I guess you're just happy it wasn't Eyore who got the chop, eh?

Angel - Nope, didn't get bust. I'm a sneaky undercover blogger, me, teehee!
