Pictures For The Album

Just as I think I'm getting  back on top of my blog I have another busy and full week.  

Along with my sister I started a pilates class on Monday night so before you know it I am going to be toned and flexible - well that's the hope anyway, lol.

Then on Tuesday afternoon Laura, Kev and Riley came for a visit and stayed until Wednesday. And what else could I do but give Riley all of my attention!!! 

Talking of Riley - I'm sure you must all be absolutely fed-up of baby pictures by now but I just had to post these ones.  
Then I promise a wee rest from them :))  

These are very special pictures to me as they feature my mum and dad (great gran and great grandad). 


My dad, mum, Riley, Laura and me.


I never thought I'd get a picture of four generations of the family - but here it is.
Definately pictures for the album - once I get it started!!!


I am also doing a course for work - I work as a doctor's receptionist and it is a course on receptionist skills.  

One of the things we are required to do is a five minute presention on something we have learned on the course. 

Yikes -  I hate doing anything like this. 

Anyway that is due on Tuesday next week so I'm going to be busy this weekend working on that.  

Wish me luck for the actual presentation - to say I'm dreading it would be a massive understatement.  
If anybody has any hints and tips on public speaking (even if it is only in front of 10-12 people)  I would be more that happy to hear them :))

I hope you all have a sunny, fun filled weekend.

Lovely family shots, Ellie.
Just relax and keep your head up when you're doing your presentation. I'm sure you'll do fine.

Good luck with your presentation! Just breathe deeply and slowly before you start, it de-stresses!

Lovely photos of the four generations.I have never managed that as my parents didn't live to see my grandchildren but on Mother's day ,every year,my daughter insists on a photo of herself,me and her two gorgeous daughters so at least I have three generations.
Good luck with your presentation.I hate speaking in front of people.My OH loves it.We are all different!

You can never show too many baby pics. Re the presentation, just pretend you are speaking to only one person. Good luck. (I have a few granddaughter pics in my camera, hope to have time to put them up tomorrow) xx

Rose said...

Oh, Ellie, we never tire of pictures of your precious bundle! You all look so happy, and with good reason.

Wspaniałe zdjęcie czterech pokoleń. Nie lubię też wystąpień publicznych, więc nie mogę udzielić żadnej rady. Pozdrawiam.
Great photo of four generations. I do not like public speaking, so I can not give any advice. Yours.

Isn't the four generation picture satisfying (I've got one with my oldest son - though most of the rest were around when their great granny was alive).

for public speaking, knowing your material is so important. then you are able to have more of a converstation then a presentation!!

I love the photos, especially the one of the 4 generations!

Good luck with your public speaking. I don't have any hints: just try to relax. (Although I have heard that it helps if you imagine everyone there naked....!)
