super slack

Sorry I've not been around the blogasphere for a while now! , life feels likes its marching on at a most ridiculous pace and I'm more than just a little overwhelmed with it all at the moment. Its was little Miss M's party today and my head it still buzzing from it all.

Anyway, on a random note it really did make me realise how fortunate we are in my little part of the world, all the kids are happy, well fed and loved cared for (and have more toys than they could ever EVER possibly need...or appreciate!).

oh, and I made a pretty cool 'Hello Kitty' requested by M, was quite glad she changed her mind about the Superted cake idea...that would have been somewhat more taxing...and sketchy!!

just ignore the kitchen roll, face paints, phone and other debris around it...oops!

A friend just showed me a link to this beautiful home...I want to live there!!! It looks like the most homely and inviting house and just to top it off they built it themselves for only £3000 in stunning woodland. It's given me something to daydeam about!

 take care my lovelies xxxxxxxxxx

joy joy joy

Having scratched around in my memory (not so good these days!), I've dug out a few little moments of joy! Its been a good week, pretty hectic , but good. Ive been given a lot of goodies from folk this week!
photo by Miss M (4 yrs)
A brand new (hand me down) dress given to me , along with a whole load of other gorgeous things, from a super fab friend who is moving abroad for a while!! thanks bird x
Another hand me down gift but equally awesome...a popcorn maker, I wasn't convinced at first sight and thought it would be another unused kitchen gadget thingmajig...but its amazing, no oil and it never burns and it fab for ravenous Miss M when she gets in from school...yey again for generous friends!
 Miss M is getting her first taste of photography, shes started using my camera..Ive been laughing at some of the shots she takes and just how excited she is taking photos.

Watching Little Mr J get seriously into the Chilli Peppers and rocking out on his little ukelele
 Taking Mr J and his little buddy L to the beach and watching their joy at throwing stones into the sea
Lots of cuddles and kind words from little Miss M
Sitting in the garden late at night moon gazing, with only the sound of the bats and owls

Wishing you all love, light & laughter x

something old something new...

I didn't make it to the carboot today, as its been raining and windy and YES I am having withdrawal symptoms (mainly grouchiness!). So I though I'd share a few of my favourite finds over the past yeat or two. One of my very favourites is this little book..

and i was given these brillinat 1970's Readers Digest gardening books last week by my nans lovely friend Bob. They really do cover everything you could want to know about gardening, he is the best gardener I know and I felt honoured that he handed them on to me!

and finally here's a little peek at my shelf of "old" goodies.

The gorgeous little handmade bird was made by a talented crafty friend, who got the pattern from The Artful Bird, a beautiful book by Abigail Glassenberg.  I made a similar little Blackbird using the same pattern, see him on this post.

Really must get on with boring stuff now...tidying, cookin blah blah..but my tip of the day....
don't forget about those "slow roasting" veggies in the Aga....I just made beetroot and tomato charcoal!!!

those first days

Day 1 of school went quite well, little Miss M eagerly walking into school with her new uniform and prized lunch bag, she was pretty shattered when I went to collect her but seemed happy enough.

I did actually write a whole post about the mega stress of leaving M this morning as she went into complete meltdown but having seen her after school telling me all the things she did and people she played with and no mention whatsoever of the morning episode...I read what I'd posted and deleted it. I think I had lost perpective about the whole thing, however we shall see what tomorrow brings! 
Peace to you all x
on a lighter note, i just found this website happy place, the photos are so funny...its cheered me right up! check it out.

unfortunate sticker placement!
