Zippity do dah......!!

My oh my what a wonderful weekend!!
I had a wonderful Garden party to go to with Floss (see previous post) and on Friday night i had a wonderful night with my eldest little boy. My hubby went night fishing (his first time in years), so, my son and i put the little one to bed, got changed into our jimmer jammers, sat on the sofa with a big fluffy blanket and ate pizza and chips whilst watching The fox and the child (beautiful film). We then scoffed down some choccy icecream and took a hot chocolate up to bed. We read stories and it was wonderful!!
On Saturday (somewhere in between the garden party) We went to the Stock summer fair.

And the boys had fun getting soaked in the garden!

Fathers Day was great too. We took 'Daddy' for breakfast at Southend on Sea and went bowling.
We had a great big roast dinner too.
This is my eldest and his Daddy riding their bikes. Well, actually it's Daddy riding the small bike and my son riding Daddys bike!
Now for some lovely bargains!!
I found these to gorgeous books in The factory shop for £1 each!!
And this gorgeous dress that i had seen in Asdas free magazine. So this morning i scooted down there and nabbed one(It only came into the shops yesterday). They didn't have my size, but so many women were grabbing then that i picked one up a size bigger (I'll change it if i can, or alter it if not).
I hate to wear things that others have, and i know i'll probably see this everywhere, but i really loved it. Isn't it so pretty?!

Jemm said...

What a great dress! Maybe she can grow into it?

You could always make the dress into a skirt, then you would be different and it would fit better too. Just an idea, but it is lovely. Love those books you bought. The mice are so cute aren't they? Glad Daddy had a lovely Father's Day weekend.

Hi, The china smashing looks very therapeutic! For years I've been saving all broken bits from 'accidents' with my stock and will one day (a million years away) do a mosaic table for the garden:)

Your new dress is gorgeous. You're so lucky I see things in magazines all the time but I swear they're made up as I never seem to find them in store!!!

Your 'snuggly' night with your little boy sounds perfect, these special times with mummy are what memories are made of. When I was a child, my dad worked weekends and was away until late at night my mother and I used to play board games and cards (using smarties as money) unfortuntely I dont think we played many card games as I always used to eat the Smarties!!! Love the polka dot dress. Thanks for stopping by to wish me Happy Bithday X
