Royal wedding memorabilia

I know you can probably get a coin or a mug but i think i may just be purchasing this instead. How gorgeous?

Should probably buy two really. One to keep in the packaging and one for the kids to play with but i'm not a good 'keeper'. I say release and enjoy!

FAVOURITE BLOG FRIDAY: Little Bits of Lovely

Rachel's beautiful Blog all the way from Australia...although in blog world this could be just next door!
I could talk lots but i think her choice of inspirational images she posts is better just to be admired.
Check her blog here.

My camera has gone to camera heaven

...and i am a weeping mess in the corner.

 Apparently it had taken a 'knock'. A big one...not by me. But me thinks i am not careful enough at putting it away in high places. The camera guy literally had to rip off my lens that was stuck but the camera still didn't play nicely with a new lens. Apparently, not worth the cost of repairing ;(

Anywhoo...i'm on the search and my overdraft will soon be a weeping hysterical mess too then! I'm a Canon girl. Any ideas?

A few improvements

A little flurry of DIY around here. Surprising as this is definitely not Mr C's forte! A tidied entrance hiding school bits, gloves and hats and bike stuff, a TV on the wall in the kitchen ready for our new lounging area when the sofa comes and a blind up in place. Feels good.
Not sure on the cushions...on the lookout for something else and tempted to paint this back wall too. Hmm decisions!
Chalkboard/letter holder up...its been waiting nearly a year! We store shoes in the basket.
And we bid, won and collected this table all on Sunday morning from ebay for a steal. I'm hoping to stain or paint it for our soon to be lounging area. The kids just like crawling under it!

Yesterday my sister had her twins. Two boys...a big surprise! Both natural and the second one was born breech, bum first! I hope it's not a sign of things to come. He he. Anyway, i'm in a babyhaze. xx

Whats up? looking confused! ha

My Pay it forward post has like NO response?

a.You just skipped over it by accident. OR
b. No one reads posts without images.
c. No one actually reads this blog at all!
d. Everyone has already bagged a pay it forward gift from someone else.
e. No one can be bothered to make something or do something nice for someone else.
f. No one wants me to make them a gift...can't really blame you on this one!
g. The whole post was just a figment of my imagination!

Am hoping it's not c, e or g.
I'll be happy if its lucky lot. If it's f...fair enough!
If your answer was a.  and you would love my gift and to take part. Comment here. 

 Have a good weekend peeps. I am celebrating someone's birthday, doing a bit of painting and a lot of tidying and attempting to go to bed early at least one night of the weekend. It's good for you, apparently.

Mwah x

p.s. Can you tell i kinda got some love for the booth too?!

someone loves photobooth

and her name is Kitty
Nothing changes there then...
(Photobooth on my Mac.)


So i bagged a spot on the lovely Kristi's Pay it forward. I am V. happy. I feel lucky to have her do something nice for me. In return, I have chosen to do the same on my blog. It's just to darn good an idea not to share. I think the original pay it forward idea might be a tad more complicated so i'm sticking to Kristi's rules.

The first three eligible (e.g.  not already bagged a pay it forward from elsewhere) peeps to respond will receive a handmade/ or personal gift from me sometime in 2011.

All you have to do is the same for 3 other people or 3 random acts of kindness. Spread the love.

If you are one of the lucky three please email me your deets...

I miss sunshine and flowers, nights in with the girls...but not ironing.

And dinners at home with my girls...must do this more. I remember this night from my old house.
Though quite clearly i don't miss ironing because i never did any before! ha ...that tablecloth is a tad embarassing but for all the time i save not ironing i cannot feel any real guilt!
 Peonies are the best.

Birdcage memo

Love this...maybe it's the grey wall it's sat against and the pink flowers that make it look so good?

Holiday dreaming

Recently we've being trying to book a holiday for before the baby comes in the Summer. This is one that we were tempted with but a bit to far out of our budget for this trip and the weather not so great when we want to go. But it has special facilities for people taking babies and children, a baby go lightly service, kids clubs, babysitting,  a spa for the adults and the style of an adults exclusive club. Drool.

 Definitely one to save for another trip. Almyra Luxury Spa Hotel in Cyprus.

They must have the ultimate in white stain remover with all those kids though! I reckon you could pick up some cleaning tips from them too?!

Missing: One squidgy lion

Last seen 26th December for sure.

I remember seeing him when we took these photos on Boxing day and not since.
Does this prove a point... that kids have too many toys that we can actually miss a medium size lion?
