Don't believe all you read in the papers

Yesterday my daughter went with a friend to the Wireless festival at the Olympic Park.  They had a brilliant day, watching bands, wandering around in the sunshine and celebrity spotting.  They are huge fans of The Only Way is Essex.  (We live literally on the Hertfordshire/Essex border) So when they saw one of the stars near the VIP section, they made a bee line over there to see if they could meet him.  Not only did they meet him but, when asked if they could have their photo taken with him, he put his arms round them and then briefly kissed R's friend on the lips.  Moment over, they walked off and continued on their way.
So later in the evening, a friend of theirs sent a 'tweet' to tell them they were 'all over' the Daily Mail website.  According to that, this guy had pursued R's friend before planting a passionate kiss on the lips 'of a mystery brunette' while her blonde friend (we all know who that would be then) watched on.
So a brief 5 seconds of 'hey we recognise him - can we have a photo' becomes headline news and two very large photos of R and her friend end up plastered on the internet.  Hilarious!

So, in other news ...
I've made the little mini book to show off the photos from my husband's cycle trip to Germany. Using a design that Sandie taught at an EK crop and embellishments from the lovely pack of goodies that I received from Ifa in Sian's Big Swap of Small Things.





Which means that I can spend today out in the garden enjoying the sunshine! Can't believe that the good weather is lasting so long - let's make the most of it while it's here.

That's such a funny story Deb! The media does take a story and run with it. Recently there has been so much speculation about when the royal baby is due but to be honest I don't think the media have a clue!
