Friday i’m in love


We had a busy (non badgeing day) yesterday, which is quite a novelty for us as we seem to have been workinf 7 days a week for ages. So we went to Manchester with a couple of friends to watch Metallica yesterday, we had a great day. We managed to fit in seeing the Leonardo da Vinci exhibition at the Manchester Art Gallery. Its a collection of 10 Drawings from the Royal Families private collection. It was quite something. Really glad we got to see it, as last time we were in Manchester we were a dasy early & it didn’t open until the 14th Feb… Doh!

Keep me away from the pancakes

Yes its official i have outdone myself & toally pigged out on pancakes this weekend. I am to be kept as far away from the pancake mixture, lemons, sugar & maple syrup as id humanly possible. Its for my own good.

John & i have had a quiet weekend, just pottering around the house sorting out some old magazines and paperwork. I am getting things in order for when we move. I seem to have a fear of having too much clutter. I am sure i have spoke about this before. I hate having unessacary clutter & bits and bobs that people give for (often as gifts) that you do not want but have to find a suitable spot in your house for. For me thats the bin. I try and keep all the lovely things (sometimes not so lovely), but they stress me out & they have to go. At first in a draw then eventually in the bin. Everytime we move & thats alot i have to scale down our belongings get rid of things i haven’t used. Am i mad or do you do the same? ... Continue Reading

Pancakes & Books


I have been eating my weight in pancakes these past few days & pancake day isn’t even upon us. I love love love them, drowned in fresh lemon juice with fresh stawberries on the side. YUM
Ok so i am not very good at flipping them over, hence it looks a little bashed.

When i was out & about in the big city i came accross these cute Penguin branded products. I love it very old school indeed.

Part of me (a big part) wishes i bought some of this gorgoeous stationary from the new Orla Kiely Stationery Collection

Make it out Alive


So ok today i am simply moving at a snails pace, it does not help that i am sinking in a sea of badges in different states of done. Half cut out, printed, made & waiting to be posted. I just can seem to get anything finished. I have made myself THE biggest cup of sweet tea ever seen & i may sneek a chocolate biscuit & dunk it too.

What i really want to be doing is reading, but that will just have to wait. Oh me & my yummy husband (yes i can call him that) watched MILK the other night. I had no idea of this story, but adore Sean Penn. It did not disappoint it was a story very well told. Highly recommended.
