Christmas Gifts

So one of the pressies I bought my niece is a gorgeous mitten and hat set with strawberries on!



How gorgeous is she?!

I finally got a little cup cake stand -



This made its first appearance on Boxing day as a mince pie stand (home made of course)!

My father and sister-in-law were both ill over Christmas which was really sad :-( but they both put a brave face on and tried to make the most of seeing family etc.

Sookie went swimming tonight, this was just before the incident -



My silly little girl!

One of my favourite house plants is about to flower, looks kinda alien right now -




That's all for now guys!

Catch y'all soon! :-)

Present from our Kitty

So today our wee cat Sookie thought we deserve a late Christmas present! I think it's far to say she enjoyed it more than we did!



Oh yes not a starling, robin or little mouse but some how she caught and killed a pigeon!

And left a trail of destruction all over the garden!


Her nickname of Sookie Monster is ever so true!

My Weekend Antics

So my weekend whizzed by yet again!

Saturday was spent getting our home ready for an inspection this week so we were weeding, cleaning and repairing the damaged caused by out cat -


I had a few more gifts to wrap and finish, here's the finished Vanilla Extract locking gorgeous and festive -


Saturday evening we hit the town with a group of friends, some people would say was pure indulgence and I would normally agree. I somehow managed to stay out until gone 1am. A new dress made its debut appearance, it's a 40's style tea dress, nips in at the waist then flares out and finishes mid thigh -


Today Sunday was my sister-in-law's birthday and as a surprise we all went shopping and outdoor ice skating in Cribs Causeway, Bristol. But after last night my hubby was feeling rather sorry for himself. Im so proud that i didn't fall over once! So I hit the ice and worked up a sweat, such good fun. It was also such a great way to get into the festive mood. Here we are having fun -


So a busy tiring weekend, it's 9:10 and I'm already in bed desperate for some sleep! Oh and I'm sorry to say I'm I'll yet again! Horrible head cold type thing!

I hope you all enjoyed the last weekend before Christmas!

Saturday's Anitics

So Saturday we were due to visit my gran up in Crawley, we left at 9am and it was -2 degrees celsius! I couldn't resist taking this picture of my favourite plant in my front garden the patterns in the leaves were gorgeous -


So five of us piled into one car, my brother, his misses, my hubby, baby Jazmine and me - it was a squeeze! After seeing my gran, which was nice dispute the fact she was too frail looking and in pain we met my dad for lunch. During which Jazmine looked so gorgeous! We was laughing, smiling and dribbling!





After all this I had to go to a Zumba party! As soon as I upload them I'll share some photos with you!

My Weekend .....

So my BlogPress app is still being rubbish and crashing every five minuets so this time I'm doing mini blogs so I don't lose what I've already done!

So a while back Sookie my cat fell in the bath, and she still hasn't learnt her lesson. Every time I have a bath she does this ......








She puts her front paws in the water and then licks them, when the waters high enough she balances on her back legs and drinks straight from the bath! Crazy kitty!

Poor ill me

Today I've been somewhat unwell, I'll spare you all the details! So I did some light house work, watch some trash tv and chilled out. To finish an ill day I need a good nights sleep, so what better way than I nice warm bath full of bubbles and dried lavender to finish it to induce sleep!


Sleep well fellow bloggers. Fingers crossed for a better tomorrow!

American Weekend

So this weekend ended up with a very American feel. We found in our travels in Bristol a store that sold an array of imported American food and we went a little crazy. Our snacks for the day looked a little like this-


Twinkie's and root beer, now the root beer tasted and smelt like Germoline not too great! The Twinkie was just odd, the sponge was dry and sickly, the cream filling was just odd. Overall not great! Lol not to mention because these were imported they cost a fortune, £1.80 a Twinkie and £1.50 for the can of root beer! Ouch!

But we stocked up on Marshmallow Fluff and Lucky Charms! :-)
