A bit of this, a bit of that


Here is what i sent claire in the SSC Summer Swap:


A shopping bag, choccies for her boys, cocktail sticks, a heart from Poppy and Daisy, CK flannel, a make up bag, a candle, some cloths, fairy cake cases and a VW Camper recipe book.



-Mmmmm..one of the best sandwiches ever?


Burgens Linseed bread with brie, chutney,and spinach:



-Pizza express have a new pizza out: Less than 600 calories?...


....Means i can add some chips then!



-Outrageous toys!!

What is it with the price of childrens toys?

My boys had some birthday money...my eldest decided to get this:

£39.99!!!!!!  for that!!!!!




Awww... anyones elses kids loving Ben and Holly?:

My youngest wanted to get the castle, but it wasn't in stock so he settled for this:



-I actually squealed when i saw this in Sainsburys (Yes sad i know, but i love Charlie and Lola):




-My eldest enjoyed a quad biking party with his friends at school for his 8th birthday on the weekend:
Can you believe one of my little boys, not so little now!!



-It is my Mother In Laws birthday today. I was really pleased with the bits i put together for her:
An Emma Bridgewater tin, tissues and diary, A selection of sweets/chutney, her fave Turkish Delight and a handmade 'With Love' heart (available at Poppy and Daisy)

If anyone is interested in little made up boxes or tins like this i will be adding them to my shop soon, so keep a look out.


Enjoy the week

Fab post! I have been eating those pizzas...laughing though, that fewer calories on it means like you...I add more to the plate! ha ha

My sons love Bakugan. Middle son spent £40 on them from his birthday money and you get nothing for that amount. Littlist son likes Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom.....I love it too.....Gaston is my fave!!!!!

Love Charlie andLola too but none of the kids do.....i would have bought the pink milk too...just for me!

The tin boxes look fab, what an excellent idea! Have a great rest of a day! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
