But, theses were very nice this year. only picked a few this year. may get some more this weekend if I get round to it and there’s any left. So, this year I made an Apple and Plum strudel and a plum pie with the...
A Little Embroidery.
Today was really all about cleaning the house. But, then I found this Embroidery that my Granny gave me. She started it long ago when my mum was little and said i should finish it. I haven’t had a go at it yet though but i thought I’d share it as what she has done already is so nice. I haven’t done Embroidery before so hopefully it will look as nice as hers...

Made a Sling for the new baby today. I used this cute tutorial here. But I didn’t put padding in mine as i didn’t have any. It was very easy to make.

But i will post one of...

Broken beyond repair.
My PC may as well look like this at the moment. It keeps breaking! just shutting off. With a husband in IT you may be wondering why? Well I think Rich’s fix for it the last three time it’s done this was a quick fix. But really it’s broken beyond repair. luckily he will be able to fix it. but it will take a fair bit of Nagging on my part! :) So, basically that’s why...
To undercut or not to undercut?
I really love this hairstyle and really really considering it! I used to do crazy stuff with my hair and now it’s just frumpy and old. I was going to just get a cut but i may go for this instead. Need some input of weather you think it’s going to look good on me or not as Ellie’s head looks a different shape to mine and she is… well beautiful! I think its funky yet...
Bun in the Oven!
I’m having a baby! I’m now half way to the finish line! with 141 days to go! I’m getting very nervous about the birth of this baby! With my son Alexander I was induced and had 15 tiring hours of labour that ended in deceleration of his heart rate and an emergency c-section. So, really I’m a first time mum as I will be going for a “VBAC” this time around! I...

So my husband came home with a new Gadget the other day. A new Halogen oven for me. I immediately thought what a waste of money and that we should take it back. It was £29.99 including VAT. So, it sat in the box waiting for it’s fate, for three days. Then it was Sunday. Time to cook the roast. I was going to the room to get my apron when i saw him there on the floor and wondered hmmm? shall...
Little rabbits and New material.
Yesterday, I didn’t get up to much. My Avon order came. I bought my self their new shampoo and a brush. I loved the shampoo, my hair is so soft. Avon sort of fell through though. I was selling it but not actually selling it. I wasn’t making any money. no one seems to be interested. I walked for miles placing my little Bags out. With a catalog, letter, coupons, business cards, all made...
