A couple of weeks ago Max blogged about her recent thrifty finds and this Cool knitted blanket was one of things she found. Amazingly Max said that the blanket may be better suited for someone else and said if anyone wanted the blanket to leave a comment. So I did, guess who was the lucky recipient? Perhaps it was my sob story about never seeing these blankets for sale in the charity shops, or the fact I could have a piece of NZ with me here in England!) either way I am thrilled. Thank you Max!

One little kitten especially loves it! Poppy our kitten has arrived and she is just gorgeous.
Lastly I have been thinking recently about all the great things I get from writing my blog. I have meet (virtually) some really lovely people, I have been inspired, I have found some great products, competitions, swaps and received some lovely presents. When I first started writing this blog, I never thought I would do all of the above, and each week that goes by I still feel excited about what I am going to read or find.
As mentioned here the lovely Lou at Jumbles and Pompoms presented me with the 'One Lovely Blog' award. Thank you Lou!
I think I am supposed to write some random things about me.
My Uncle was a All Black (rugby) for NZ in the 1950's.
My Father had 8 sisters and no brothers.
I love roller coasters.
I can count to 10 in Japanese
I almost never measure ingredients when I bake.
I have been to Malaysia 8 times.
Please feel free to not do this blog award, as I know some people feel it doesn't suit their blogs, but it is nice to receive a award!
