Flower- Sunny Yellow tulips to brighten these horrible grey days we have been having:
Something i hate- Coffee, Bleurgh!! hate the taste, hate the smell. The hubbie loves it though and likes to make fresh coffee:
Hair: I have a huge collection of trolls from when i was a kid. My eldest has a couple in his room.
Orange: This wasn't hard. My youngest loves Orange!!! See the smily face? That is now the colour of one whole wall in his bedroom. He wanted every wall and the ceiling painted!!! We let him have one big wall!! It actually looks really nice with his blue accessories. Very bright though!
Something i drew- I don't draw often. My son asked me to draw him some cars for his room. I was doodling on a pad before i set about drawing them. This is what i drew a couple of weeks ago before this photo challenge:
Bottle - its no mystery that i love a glass of Disaronno and ice:
The last thing i bought- Tailors chalk from Liberty:
Vegetable - there are always onions in our house. I add them to most meals i make:
Something i am grateful for - There are lots of big things i am grateful for of course. But a smaller thing would be Friends. I love that show!!!
Looking down - Another rainy day!!!! My next door neighbours front garden is so pretty. I see it evey morning when i open our bedroom curtains.
I ordered these gorgeous paper tapes straight away!!!
The boys have enjoyed making pizzas this week: A great way of getting them to eat fresh and more veg.
I went with a friend to Tropical wings (The Meerkats are my favourite). We had a lovely day and managed to dodge most of the rain!! I took the boys back home and was greeted by hubbie with this huge bunch of tulips and then met back up with my friend and some others for pizza and chocolate fondue - yum!!!!
Sunday i went up to London with hubbie, boys and my Mum:
The boys went to Hamleys and the ferrari shop while mum and i went to Liberty:
We met up for lunch and treats at Fortnum and Mason - i love that store!!
Best hot chocolate ever - with a little ice cream on the side:
Mum treated us to a visit to Ripleys. The boys loved it!!!
I think i was most impressed with seeing the toot sweet machine from Chitty chitty bang bang. After seeing this and the car whilst on holiday i really must watch the film again.
We stopped for burgers and milkshakes and then headed home. It was really lovely.
Todays lovely things:
1) I got a lovely jumper from here and had a really yummy goats cheese and grilled veg panini for lunch.
3) Watching Reel Steel with my eldest before bed. ' Mum, that was the best film ever!'
3) Waking up to the eldest blaring out 'Get down with the trumpets' and shouting '5 more days till Rizzle Kicks!!!!' (It will be his first proper music concert)
I like to hang pictures like this and i love the organised papers!!
I love white!!! and i love plain but beautiful things like this way of displaying garlic:
I'd like curtains like this - not sure where:
I completely agree with this. Kids will remember the shouting, the nagging, the time you didn't spend with them.
So don't spend the holidays and weekends sorting you're house out!!! Spend the time with them, let them do fun things with their family! Teach from example. The kids won't remember you're clean perfect house. They will remember the days out, fun mum and dad. Change you're attitude before its too late.
I love sunny yellow and i love picnics:
I favour white calm rooms that can have touches of colour added, I am so in love with this throw:
Mmmm a splash of turquoise!!!
The little one and i have been using these different sayings at bedtime:
I hate matching furniture!!! I am looking for a beaten wooden trunk for the seating area in the dining room and i may look for something like this in the lounge:
