Firework Surprise

This year for Guy Fawks night I went to the Fireworks display at Glasgow Green with Katy (my sister) and Karen (my friend) is has been years since i went to the park to watch the display so this felt like quite a treat. I love fireworks night, the smell of the smoke and fireworks, the foggy atmosphere and the noise. I remember going to the park to watch the fireworks as a kid with my Mum, Dad and Katy with a little bag of nuts and sweets left from my Halloween haul.
I remembered to take my camera but the battery died some time before the finale :( when i got home and took a look at the photos i was so surprised to find some really interesting shots.

Soda Stream

I am now the proud owner of a SodaStream :-) thanks to Vonnie of Blotted Copy Book. When I got the message to say I had won I was so excited, I remember friends of mine having Soda Stream machines when i was a kid and they seemed like loads of fun!
As soon as it arrived I had to get it open and have a go.

Here it is and.....

here is the first bottle and glass of juice.

I can confirm that using the Soda Stream is loads of fun, it is really satisfying pushing the button to make the bubbles, i had to have a look on the SodaStream website to see what other flavours there are and i think i will be going for the My Water flavour essence next time.

Thank you so much Vonnie.

Vonnie has a great shop, The Life Craft on Greatwestern Road in Glasgow, It is such a nice place with lovely staff. They sell gorgeous yarns and all things knitting and crochet related, they have super cake, great advice, a good bit of banter and hold all sorts of crafty classes and workshops.
