A bit if this and a bit of that.

So it has not gone un-noticed (by me) my lack of blogging over the last few weeks. No excuses, my laptop has not broken, I have not been working more, I haven't been out partying, nor come down with a nasty bug. Just a bit of this and a bit of that. So what have we been doing?

                                                           We have been kite flying
           A windy afternoon, with our birthday kites touching the top of the trees and even the clouds

The local national trust gardens, with the children getting very excited over the Monkey tree. 'Look Mum'!
We watching lovingly as DD made her first hand sewn heart purse. How tempted was I too (take over) join in. She was so proud! (and so was I)

           We planted these beautiful spring pink and white primroses in pots, for the patio garden.

                                        And these beautiful vibrant purple and white flowers.

And I got these for Mothers Day (seems a long time ago now!) I must replace them soon, before they bend downwards and perish.
Just a snippet of the last few weeks, enjoying the sunshine and the children and catching up on TV and living our life's. But as they say absence makes the heart grow fonder.
I have also found some beauties whilst on holiday in Hampshire for my next thrifty bargains, I have also agreed to make a pillowcase dress for charity for the lovely sew scrumptious and I have been re organising my cupboards.
I am really looking forward to catching up on all my favourite blogs. Sorry for the absence!



  1. Nothing wrong with spending some family time, I've been feeling a bit of a bad mummy the amount of time I spend on blog related activities - more reading than writing at the moment to be honest, but I have been glued to the computer a bit.

    Well done DD on the cute purse - an excellent job!

  2. It's good to take time away from blogging. Stops it from becoming a bit of a chore. Looks like you filled your time well making memories.
