Yey, the postman has arrived !!
Well actually he came on Saturday, so this post is a few days late. The lateness is not entirely my fault, I was all set to post Monday evening, even got as far as sitting down in front of the screen, that's when it all went pear shaped. I knew as soon as I looked at the screen that no post was going to get done, there were zig zaggy lines, letters missing off words and some sentences missing all together, a technical problem I hear you cry ..... no the start of a major migraine, I knew within half an hour it would hit and I would be rendered useless for the next 12hrs. What did I do with my magic half hour ? Ate a great big bowl of Strawberries and cream and then went to bed.
Felt much better yesterday but didn't want to risk spending ages looking at a screen, so I'm doing my post today.
I suppose you would like to see what the postman brought...
My summer swap prezzie !! Hooray..
I was very lucky and received some fantastic goodies from the wonderful Gem at Dreams of a life in the country.
Let me show you.....a fab funky pink union jack teapot tea towel,
Some groovy tent socks, how cool are they ?
A packet of polka dot pink tissues, Isla -Rose has fallen in love with these because they are pink and involve her favourite past time, nose picking, she has even gone as far as to force stuff out of her nose, so she can use mummy's special pink tissues.
A gorgeous cake card with a little handwritten note inside.
A beautiful rose frame, with enough spaces for each of my kiddies, sorry Mr Dudley you don't count. This will hang in my bedroom, as I keep trying to make the room a bit more floral, if I keep sneaking bits in, Scott might not notice.
I absolutely love these !!! Battery powered paper lanterns. They are going to look great hanging in my tent in Cornwall, so pretty.
A pretty pink windmill for the garden, something else that Isla- Rose has claimed as hers, because it's pink.
There was also a very funky fly swat, which is a must for camping, but Dylan is having his fussy out of it at the moment, smacking bums !!!!
Thank you so much Gem, I love them all.
I'm off now to sew ribbons on Lucie's tutu for the weekend, she is performing at the Nottingham playhouse with her ballet school, hopefully I'll get some photo's of her in the tutu before Saturday, she's not being very cooperative though and keeps complaining about it being itchy, I don't think she'll be making a career out of ballet unless it suddenly becomes acceptable to perform on stage in jeans.
Speak soon xx
