(ok, ok, slight exaggeration!!)
and then the rest of the time you feel like this????..............
Having a VERY BAD HAIR day!!!!!! I'll be back when I'm feeling less like Norah!
Because the floral one on the left has been claimed as her cushion it just has to go on her side of the sofa, but it doesn't look right! So we are having a very quiet battle, every time I go into the living room the cushion fairy has visited and the cushion has moved so I put it back, and so it goes on. Pathetic and a complete waste of time to some people I'm sure, but it's what goes on in this house, and she's only 2, what have I created??
Visited a couple of charity shops recently and picked up this lovely sheet, it's too small for our bed, and I can't bring myself to cut it up so I think it will become a tablecloth for our garden table. I hung it out on the line in the glimpse of sunshine we had yesterday and had that great "washing on the line" feeling, can't explain that one but hopefully you know what I mean!
Finally, I treated myself to some cherries yesterday, how expensive are they? £2.37 for this little lot, but boy were they worth it! There's no better taste in summer, although I always think the spitting out of the stones somewhat spoils the moment!
This photo captures the true essence of him, he's a great dad (although I don't tell him enough), patient, understanding and always there for his children. They love him to bits and the feeling is mutual. Ian, we love you and always will.
So, the weekend was spent picking strawberries from Pop's veg plot, and then eating them with meringues and cream, YUM!
On Saturday we went on a tiny ferry from Knott End to Fleetwood and then caught a tram down to Cleveley's. We had a fantastic time, the children loved being with their grandparents and as an added bonus my grandmother came with us too! Four generations of the same family on a Knott End ferry, bet that doesn't happen often!
Thought I'd end this post with a couple of kitchen shots for all those of you like me who like photos of other peoples' houses. I'm going to have to start sewing again soon to have some more interesting bits to show!
This is the top of my old kitchen dresser, filled with all my car boot/charity shop finds, apart from the little choir boy who belongs to Ian (one of the few ornaments he will lay claim to).
And finally my sideboard full of gorgeous old plates and serving dishes, and yes that is the sun you can see shining through, it finally came out this afternoon! My mum spotted this old table in a junk shop, it was painted a dark green. A couple of coats of Farrow and Ball "String" and it fits in perfectly I think. It's one of my favourite pieces of furniture and so useful, it can hold loads, a very important requirement in the house of an unrepentant hoarder!
For some unknown reason, blogger has gone completely haywire tonight - has anyone else out there had problems?
It's a great place for hiding all the paraphenalia that children accumulate. The mirror above was a car boot bargain that I haven't yet got around to hanging, I can't quite bring myself to drill into the wallpaper!
Hope you're all having a great week, and here's to a sunny and relaxing weekend!
This is our bedroom, the one room I try to keep free from Lego, dolls' prams, K'Nex etc. It is however home to an ever increasing pile of washing to put away. Once the pile gets to shoulder height I put it away and start again on the next tower.
