Read and Release at BookCrossing.com...

My BookCrossing activities mean that I get a lot of FREE BOOKS! (Interested in free books? Why not check out the BookCrossing website for more information). Abiding by the BookCrossing "Share my books with the world" ethos, I've decided to advertise books from my BookCrossing back catalog here on Free Book Friday.

Would you like to read The Lady and the Unicorn by Tracy Chevalier? The book has received some mixed reviews from others, but I found it to be a good read. Why don't you read it and judge it for yourself. If you'd like to read it, email me at jess(at)fushmush(dot)net and I'll send it your way.

Terms and Conditions: first in, first served. Feel free to journal book on BookCrossing. Feel free to share the book when you've finished it.

Oscar was just a tad excited at the prospect of turning three (Click the thumbnail on the right to watch craaaaaaaaazy Oscar). It is understandable though. Any day that includes presents, smarties, freckles, and cake is worth getting excited about.

Happy Birthday mooshuk! (photos)

We visited the Veitch Family last night to give Hannah, Sarah and Ellie their Christmas present. This means, I can finally boast about my wonderful creation. This year, I made a puppet theatre and a family of puppets for Hannah, Sarah and Ellie (aka HSEV) for Christmas. The girls were very excited with their new toy. While we were there we were treated to shows entitled "Hannah sings the Alphabet", "Sarah sings the silly Alphabet" and "Mummy and Daddy get married". (photos)

I can't take all the credit, though. I got the idea for the puppet theatre from a fantastic crafty blog, Angry Chicken. Thanks for the inspiration!

*jess sings* What should we do with the drunken sailor, earl-LI in the morning!

Maybe I need to swap the word "drunken" with the word "hungover" and the word "sailor" with the word "kayaker", because I do know what to do with the hungover kayaker early in the morning. You laugh at them loudly when they fall out of their kayak!

Last weekend, we went kayaking for John's 30th Birthday (Happy Birthday John!) and Andrew was the only person who managed to fall out of the kayak. Admitedly he was trying to do the "hip, swivley thing that professional kayakers do" when it happened. I'm not sure if it was his hangover that prevented him from thinking through that decision adequately.

Thanks for letting us join the birthday fun, John! We hope you had a fantastic 30th Birthday! (Photos)
