May All Your Wishes Come True ..... Sketch Saturday Challenge #192 & DP2 Challenge #119

My baby girl Weezy (Eloise) is 22 today, those years have gone so quickly, but its nice to see her evolving into a "proper" adult since she's left home.  No partycelebrations today cos she's gotta work this evening ... so tomorrow night we are going out for a family dinner .... god help the restaurant straight face, I hope they're ready for us all!

This week I've been up to my eyeballs rolling eyes in blue emulsion paint and the dreaded white gloss ... that's one job I really hate angry... glossing!  DH has been busy with the chemical paint stripper on the new bed frame ready for me to do the paint job on it, starting today ... I'm so excited big grin.  Not much longer and I should be able to share the photo's of the new guest room with you happy.
