bit, bobs and a giveaway

I thought i'd show some pics i've taken this last week: Firstly the yummiest thing to put on toast!! Destruction: How do kids manage it in the space of just 5 mins????

All whilst i did some washing up, finally thinking the house was in some sort of order!!
The littlest decided to 'hoover' the washing machine!
My eldest made the boys christening invites. The last year has been so difficult for me that my views on god and the church has changed. I now feel i need to get my boys christened.
The Timberlands don't fit anymore!! I can't get rid of them, they are too cute, so i'm going to sit them here in the playroom.
How cute!.........waiting for Daddy.
A summery purchase.
Another set of bedware. How could i not get it?!?!
A lovely new necklace.
The littlest is a bif Fifi fan. I love this house, it is so pretty!! Whilst he is young and likes girly things i'm going to revel in it.
This was such a lovely find from my local garden centre, filled with 24 beautiful cards all for £3.99!!

And now for my giveaway!!!
I reached 40 followers today so i have decided to have my first giveaway.
I won't say what it will be, but it will have a spring theme.
If you want to enter just leave me a message on this post and i will pop your name in my lovely wedding bag. If you link to me on your blog i will pop you in twice! (make sure you let me know if you do this).
On Saturday i will get the boys to choose a winner.
Good luck!!
I'll be choosing a winner on Monday morning now.

Your boys mess looks like a very tidy mess compared to the trail of distruction Jack leaves everywhere 'hehe'.
Isn't it lovely when they can still get away with liking girly things. Mind you who dictates what's girly and what isn't?
I would love to enter your giveaway, I hope you have as much fun doing it as I have!
Have a good week.

Hello Lissy,
You do have two lovely little lads, and what a lovely little Christening Invitation. I bet they are getting really excited about their special day!! I would love to be included in your giveaway please? Maybe soon I will do one,but at present all I feel like doing is crawling into bed!! I'm sure we will feel better tomorrow!

Have a lovely week, and thank you for your reply to my last post.

Ooh a giveaway how exciting! I think I will do one when I get to 100 posts, I am at about 60 at the moment so not too long to go. Some very sweet photos in your post today and love your new buys. X

MaryPoppins said...

What gorgeous photographs of your lovely boys and waiting there for Daddy, soooo cute. I think the shoes look gorgeous where they are so special and a lovely reminder of their little days.

I would love to enter your giveaway though have been very lucky to win a couple so please don't put me in the hat I want to give our lovely blogging friends more of a chance :)


LittleGem said...

Oh yes the pinking method, well all you do is cut your heart out using pinking scissors, then you sew them the right way round (you could do it by hand or on the machine) and stuff before you sew up the closure, so the whole time you are doing it the heart is the right way round if that makes sense? There is one I did on the Feb Swap Sent post, and Mary Poppins has some on her last post too xx

Mummy Boo Bear said...

What cute boots and boys! its sweet when they look forward to daddy coming home my two are just the same. And as for the amazingly quick time they can make a mess in well I think they would win gold every time at an olympics!

I would love to enter your giveaway if I may? not sure how these work still finding my way in this blogland!

take care

Melissa said...

Cute photos!

Hollypop's said...

The picture of your little ones looking out the window takes me back. Holly used to do that, she'd keep a little stool by the window so she could stand on it and keep an eye on things. How cute is that. Whole Earth Peanut Butter - I always stock up on that when I come back to the UK.
I'd like to be entered pleased.
Take care.

Sarah said...

Love Peanut Butter! Would be great to be entered in your giveaway please!

Mess! It's amazing how much energy it can take to keep on top of everything! I never do really, otherwise I'd never have time to have make anything I think! It's so nice that you're getting the boys Christened and they are making the invitations. Good luck! I keep Miss E's first ballet shoes, never could bear to part with them either! Love Salx

That card pack is genius! Love the Fifi house, my girls have a mushroom with fairies though I seem to spend more time picking up the bits from it than they do playing with it!

Would love to be in with a chance in the giveaway please.

Your house looks immaculate compared to the devastation of toys on the floor in mine! My gorgeous girl has the same Fifi house (mad on Fifi!). I'm with you on the Bonne Maman!

Pixiedust said...

I think my washing machine needs hoovering !!


gingerwine said...

I can't believe how tidy your home is with 2 little ones!
Nice Bargins too xx

louise said...

I cannot be converted from eating Hartleys jam, and I only eat peanut butter straight from the jar on a teaspoon, rather like I do Nutella! The photos of your little boy hoovering the washing machine and standing on the stool are just too cute for words. I love the set of cards you bought too. I would love to be entered into your giveaway. Thank you. x
