Hello- I'm still here!

Here's a little list of what I've been up to recently!
1. Leo had a v long overdue hair cut and then celebrated with a babychino at Costa.
2. Oscar is doing v well with eating and is almost sitting by himself.
3. I've been v busy making crochet owls and selling them! As a result of this I have not had time for much else!
4. I've been having plenty of cuddles with these gorgeous boys.
5. I did a teeny bit of gardening and have some primroses in my window boxes. They are v cheery.
6. I went out for a meal with my lovely husband last week to our favourite restaurant. I love David Banns.
7. I have been doing lots of wheeling and dealing on the pottery front! Loving my dressers just now.
8. Yesterday my husband bought me some lilies and a box of chocolates! Wow!
9. I'm having tea with my mummy and big sister tonight and having lunch with them tomorrow. Can't wait.
10. If its a nice day tomorrow I'm hoping we can have a family walk in the park.

Thanks for reading and hope you have a happy weekend! Xxxxxx

Snow at Gardener's Cottage

It's been rather chilly round here and we've had snow.
Leo loved watching it fall and kept saying "snown" and "snomannnn"!!
He had even more fun playing in it and would only come inside if bribed with chocolate or cake!!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year friends!
Hope that you had a lovely time celebrating the start of 2013!
We had a v quiet time at home wearing our matching slipper boots (v sad!!) and had some champagne for the bells and then went to bed.
I'm hoping that 2013 is going to be a good year. 13 is my lucky number after all.
2012 had joy and sadness. We had Max's graduation, we moved house we welcomed our beautiful boy Oscar into our little family and sadly lost my beloved Grandma.
Here's to 2013 and I hope that it brings you everything you wish for!
To start with I've decided that January is going to be a month for organising! This little house is full of stuff and more messy than I'd like it to be. I've already sorted our linen cupboard and tackled the garden shed. The pantry and piles of toys everywhere are next! This is what they are like just now.... groan. Hoping I can show you nice tidy spaces soon!

A post Christmas hello

Hello. I've been a v absent blogger of late. My babies have still been ill with coughs and colds and poor Leo has had a nasty ear infection too. Hopefully we're over the worst now. Such a shame as we've missed doing lots of Christmassy things and have been stuck at home.
We've had fun times too though. My baking has been up and down!! Made some gingerbread star biscuits that were like rocks! My Christmas pudding turned out ok and Max is still ploughing through it! Christmas cake was alright for my first attempt but a bit wet inside. I'm thinking of a small square cake for next year!
We've had some lovely family get togethers, attended a village drinks party and had some nice cosy evenings at home with candles, mulled wine and treats.
Hope that you've had a lovely time over the festive period :)

A little hello

Not been in blogland as have been looking after all my boys!
Leo had a chest infection, Oscar had croup and Max a terrible cold. They are starting to get better thankfully but it's hard work looking after them!
We put up our Christmas tree today!

Makeover ideas!

This is my dolls house from when I was a little girl. It's been a bit abused over the years and is missing a few windows and the inside looks quite sad. Leo has taken an interest in it recently-Mostly moving cars up and down the stairs!! So I think it needs spruced up a bit. Any ideas?
Here are the before pics!

This and that...

I've been busy doing a bit of this and that....

-A big clearout of china- too much pink in this house! I've been replacing with some lovely greens and blues!

-Some batch cooking. I have 3 veggie shepherds pies in the freezer now.

- making a Christmas pudding!

- walking in the rain with my massive buggy and 2 flat tyres in one week. Not fun :(

- having cuddles with my babies!

What have you been up to lately?
