things I'm loving right now.............

a fab new enamel bucket and mop, hopefully this will entice me into cleaning the kitchen floor more than twice a year................then again, maybe not

a gorgeous new mug to add to the never ending collection

some lovely new owl stationery from Paperchase

enough sunshine for a garden picnic

beautiful and very pink primroses

Hope you've all had a great weekend, just a quickie tonight because blogger is seriously confused and is beginning to drive me mad, back soon x.....................

That's why dark floors are good, doesn't show the muck up for ages. Black socks give it away though.

Owl notebook is great - I think I might pop in there and have a look.

Glad I'm not the only one who leaves cleaning the kitchen floor!
Your primroses are stunning and I hovered over that same owl stationary in Paperchase last week it is lovely!

It's good to get a new month off with an appreciation of what gives us pleasure.

I do like your pink primulas.

Over here in New York, I am delighted that my week-old ruby, edged with cadmium yellow primulas are still alive. I so love drawing them, trying to learn where their funny little wheely petal formations arise.

It's grand to find that folks can been many, many miles away, yet still be caught up with similar enthusiasms.

Have a fine Monday ... and may the rest of the week be even better.

I have a pink broom with flowers on it, unfortunately it hasn't spurred me into using it more frequently!

i cant use a mop on our kitchen floor as its slate and its shreds most things to pieces!! soooooo long for a wooden floor .......

Lovely mop and bucket! I'm sure your floor will be squeeky clean always! And how gorgeous are those pots of pink primulas?

Take care,

Delcicious primroses Julia. I should sit down and admire them and the mop and bucket rather than usign them. Don't want to wear yourself out. Can't remember the last time I mopped mine - oops!

Have a lovely week

LOL I have nightmares about cleaning my kitchen floor and I'm not joking!
Great bucket though.

Is blogger being a nightmare for you too? Thought it was just me it didn't like :-)
