Catching up

2 days working for Poppy and Daisy:

Pink Bath water - like stepping into a bath of pink lemonade:

Cupcake for the little one: (See his little fingers in the pic)

One of the favourite things about my home are the rainbows that dance around my house on a sunny day from the stain glass windows:

Spa weekend:

This morning: A quick catch up on blogs and then to work:

Thursday - i think i instagramed everything!!!!

Slobby day at home - here is my little Buzz Lightyear:


The other half and my Brother in Law lined the walls behind our bed, ready for painting:

This morning i woke up by a loud bang: See the car at the t-junction and the lorry facing the houses?
I hope everyone was ok. They seemed to be when i looked out, but 3 ambulances arrived later!

This week:

A moody sky:

This it what happens when you are in a rush to cram a warm from the oven cookie in your mouth. Instead of carefully using a spatula to lift it and put it on a plate, you just flip it. Still tastes the same though ;)

Lovely makes

The pine cones from Christmas are still in good condition, so when i haven't got flowers on the dining table, i have been using these as my centrepiece. I have added hearts for Valentines day:

My son asked if we could make chocolate cakes, as his teacher 'loves chocolate cake'. This is a recipe from The hummingbird bakery book - its yummy!! As i don't eat eggs, i have used egg replacer from Holland and Barrett:

A little heart i made for a friends baby. And one of my new buisness cards from Moo. I have chosen a mix of yellow and red cards (Poppies and Daisies) and a flower print. I then chose some of my favourite lovely words/quotes to put on them:

The cutest socks, Thanks Mum!!

A friend has had her first little baby - A girl called Iona. I am hoping for my first little cuddle next week. I bought this gorgeous little babygrow (Any excuse to buy something with Bambi on it) and i want to make her a little hanging heart too:

I have been putting loose cuttings into scrapbooks. Great for inspiration:

When i arrived home after the school run, this is what i found on the living room floor. I loved Topsy and Tim. Everyone of these books were a charity shop find:
