Tags and bits

I recieved 2 tags last week: First of all Beckimarie has asked me to list 6 unimportant things that I love:

1)Pictures on the walls (how can any house not have pictures? They are not important, but they make a home. I love artwork, black and white pictures and family snaps in my house.
2)Painting pottery. I love it and find it so relaxing. The latest thing i have painted are some spotty coasters.
4)Flowers in the house.

5)Swaps - soooooo enjoying them!!

6)Eating out - we do it alot!

Next i was asked by Little Gem to list 6 things that make me happy.

1)The 2 little boys (oh how they make me so happy!!)
And lets not forget the 'bigboy', my lovely hubby!
3)Blogging - you ladies really do cheer me up, i'm so glad i decided to do this blog.
4)Watching favourite lovely films, like You've got mail or The Holiday.
5)Seeing old couples walking hand in hand.
6)Shopping for bargains!!
(Most people seem to have done these tags, so if anyone hasn't and would like to do so then please except these tags from me. Make sure you let me know if you do it, so i can be nosey!!)
On that note, Let me show you the fab things i got today.
Some Flower fairy books for under £2, A novel for £1, 2 books for my eldest for £1 (yes, i have a book addiction!) and this gorgeous sleeping bag for the little one from H&M

I also go this great photo album and card for my eldest to give to his teacher at the end of term. (She loves Roald Dahl)
So, now to this week. My eldest has had fun making families of these:
We have had some yummy meals taken from this book.
Tommorrow i am making the white chocolate and passionfruit cheesecake - yum!!
If it's yummy enough - it will make it's way into this lovely book - given to me from my boys.

I have been wanting a set of the Malory towers books i read as a child for a while- and i finally got them this week on Ebay - they were packaged well and had this lovely postcard of the area that the lady came from.
I can't get enough of innocent smoothies - just so delicious i have them everyday.
I got these today in H&M - just iron on!! You never know - one of you ladies may get something with one of these on one day!
Also, this week, i've been sorting out.
Some of my projects this week have been to go through all my files and folders and chuck and organize.
I have sorted out my recipes and home folders which have left me with such a great feeling - isn't it just so great, that feeling you get after you chuck out or tidy up things?? or is it just me??!!

Eeek, Malory Toweres, I loved these books. I used to dream of going to boarding school lol!
What about St Claires, did you read those?
Great list, love your spotty coasters.
Take care

Yep, Malory Towers was a firm favourite for me. Great to get them off Ebay - might have to take a look!

I love that chocolate is second on your list though that would be a tough call for me.

Great bargain,

I've still got all my Mallory Towers books from when I was little . I found my Enid Blyton books recently and am having great fun reading The Enchanted Wood to my 4 year old

Oh I loved Malory Towers! I live in the states now and barely anyone has read any Enid Blyton, its a travesty!

I loved those books when I was at school! Your meals look so delicious, and those iron on patches are cute. I loved shopping at H & M when we lived in Europe.
