The month of may is a busy one.

my mum came to visit earlier this month,
I think she looks pretty good for a granny.


Evelyn, also came, and hung out with us.


We had a surprise bbq birthday for Tommy but she wasn't surprised! Instead, when she came knocking on my door and I was the one who was surprised because i wasn't expecting her yet. How silly is that. I got surprised trying to surprised someone! Oh well! I think she liked her cake.

That's it for now.

Catch you later -.-
