This post is a catch up of the last couple of weeks.
All the pictures are from my mobile, as my camera is broke :(
I feel lost without it!!
I had a nice Mothers Day....although my hubby was suffering from a sickness bug, and the 2 little boys were recovering from the one they'd had. So i didn't get my requested lay in with breakfast and mags...but i'm still owed it ;)
I went to the special Mothers Day Church parade with my eldest....he gave me some daffs (don't you just love this time of year? Daffs everywhere? hmmm lovely!)
I got some lovely flowers too, and a pamper day for me and my best friend.
We also went out for a lovely meal with our Mums, except my poor husband couldn't really eat and sat there feeling ill, bless him and the youngest boy was covered in a rash from a virus he'd had!!
I did get to read some magazines in bed that night and the following few days:
I wanted to show you this lovely card i recieved from Kazzy from A mermaids Purse. Thank you, you are so talented. I went to see Alice in Wonderland on the weekend.....glad i saw it, but i wasn't enthralled or anything. It was cleverly done though and Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter were fantastic.
I was also given some lovely crafty bits from my Mums friend:
We have watched a couple of DVDs this month......An Education was not what i thought it would be at all!!! Has anyone else seen it?? I expected it to be a really lovely romance with lots of Paris in it.
Couples retreat was actually better than i thought it would be....it raised a good few chuckles!
Mmmmmm, there has been quite alot of homecooking of late in our house hold:
yummy lasagne....made with mushrooms, spinach and red onion.
And Fab Footballs taken from a big cook little cook recipe that the little boys decided they wanted to make:
They really enjoyed them (you can get the recipe from the cbeebies website)
On Friday i picked up my new car!!!! yay!! i love it....it's filthy at the moment as me and the hubby took it down to Brighton for the weekend.
We visited the Eco veggie fair....where we sampled and bought lots of lovely treats including this very pretty and yummy vegan chocolate muffin:
We ate in one of my favourite restaurants...Food for friends..where i had a to die for chocolate torte!! so yummy..i need to find the recipe.
I made a few little purchases....the Ck carrier bag holder that i have lusted over for ages....yay!! no more messy bags stuffed down the side of the cupboards!
A pretty Miffy Magnet.....i chose a Daisy dress as it's my favourite flower:
And a flowery bag from Primark, that i'm going to use for storage in........
..........my hopefully, very nearly completed work room/spare room!!!!!
Here is the before (after i had almost emptied it)
You can't see that well from the pics....but horrible fluffy dark red carpet, very thicked papered walls painted in a horrible light pink and lovely (Ahem) yellowy wood doors.
My lovely Brother in Law and his partner have spent the last 2 days striping (The walls that is) and painting.
Now i'm waiting for the carpet and i can start refilling it with this lot:
Yes...the dining room is now home to crafts, folders, junk and furniture, (which you can't see)
So excited about the room being completed....i'll be able to get making!!!!!
Next week i'll be back with Notebook Monday and Weightloss Wednesday and hopefully a new camera soon!!
And i've decided to have a giveaway when i reach 150 followers to thank you all.....you'll have to follow to enter this one though!!
