So I’ve decided to move my blog completely over to WordPress & after a few hick up’s I’ve finally got it sorted & how I want it (I think!)

I will be running a giveaway in the next 1 weeks so watch this space.

Please follow me by email, RSS feed, Twitter & Facebook for updates.

Are your pictures safe?

A fellow blogger found out that pictures she uses on her blog were being used on other sites without her consent so she decided to write a blog post about it & explain how we can all make our blogs OUR property.

Please check it out & make sure your content is not being reproduced without your consent.

Thanks to A Mummy Too for alerting all of us to this.

Why do I never realise!???

A week of headaches, a stupid tickley cough these are the symptoms but I NEVER realise until I get the pain in my ear & throat, sometimes it’s a bad taste in my mouth but usually the ear & throat. Yep it’s the start of another bout of tonsillitis. Oh the joy’s but thankfully to a nice doctor 10+ yrs ago who wouldn’t take my tonsils out I’ve always got a supply of penicillin with me so I can start them immediately without having to wait for an appointment, which with our doctors is usually about 2 weeks!!

I also have a supply of them as I’m susceptible to insect bites & have a really bad reaction to them but that’s another blog post!!

Fingers crossed I have caught this early enough to not cause me too many major problems (fingers crossed!)

Honestly it self combusted!!

Crunchie is a demon when it comes to soft toys & they don’t last very long. 
She had played with her ball for a few hours the other day & then left it, much to our amazement!
So today I decided to let her play with it again & she had fun chasing around the lounge with it, but stupidly I forgot to close the lounge door & after about 10mins of playing she shot off upstairs.

I left her for 5 mins & this was the sight that greeted me!!!

Birthday boys meal!

Today is/was Ian’s birthday so I took him out for a meal to his favourite steakhouse Miller & Carter.
We normally got to a local branch but they have opened a new restaurant a few miles away & we decided to give it a go.
I have to say we were NOT disappointed at all. We went earlish & although the car park seemed quite busy it was quiet inside. 
It’s only been open for about 6 weeks & they’ve done the refurb really nicely, you certainly know your in a Miller & Carter. It’s nice & clean & stylish.
We ordered a large glass of wine each & looked through the menu. we’d got a voucher for a free starter or desert …………. if you “like” their facebook page you can get a voucher yourself. (dates limit’s apply) ………… we opted for the sharing platter which looked like this …………

Gorgeous handmade gifts.

Way back in November maybe even October I was Chatting to Sarah from Silver Birch Crafts & asked her to make a bag for my sister which turned out even better than I expected. 

Sarah is well known for her “Spotty Bags” 

It arrived so beautifully packaged I refused to open it so had to wait till Christmas which you can read about by clicking here!

So another month down the line I finally got to see it in all it’s glory.

Our late Christmas

Due to my brother-in-law being in hospital with pneumonia & my sister being very poorly we cancelled Christmas this year. 
Finally yesterday we managed to go & visit them & deliver not only their Christmas presents but Gaynor’s birthday presents which she also missed because of being ill.
This is the gorgeous slimline holdall from The Camouflage Company who had kindly given it in a prize draw that was ran by Cheryl.
