liar liar bums on fire...

hello sweet cheeks... so i lied didn't i?! and that was in february no less...will you ever forgive me..

i do very much hope so...

i am back and typing my first post in such a long time.. i don't even have anything of great importance or great significance to report...how shameful!

what i have been doing is being a busy mummy...visits to the zoo & the farm, playing & painting, baking & family tea times have all been the order of the day just recently, and i do most strongly believe that, that, is as good of a reason as any to be away from the laptop....what say you?

in other news.. pintrest have an app!! oh my!! I downloaded it the very day it 'app'eared and well..i am super guilty of being lay in bed 'pinning' when i should be sound asleep.. it's the very best way to pass time!

my pintrest is here if you would like to stop by..

today has been a quiet day.. i have enjoyed..

eating..homemadelemon drizzle cake

sipping..cups of tea

writing..many many lists

wearing..warm clothes with big socks

listening to..the sound of silence..the wind blowing outside and the occasional car swoop down the hill at the end of the road

i'll be back soon..with words and pictures.. xx

i heart this lady...

not just sjp but sjp as carrie ... j'adore carrie bradshaw
i love her realness and how you see all her flaws as well as her strengths not to mention maybe the most amazing wardrobe - ever!

thought for the day..

It's cold!!!
i think i coined the term "it's brass monkey's outside" at several points during the course of today (this, may i say is a truly accurate indication of weather conditions if ever there was one. one may also count number of times they have heard the phrase 'coined' as another clear measure if they themselves have not yet braved conditions to 'coin' from experience)
so today was officially freezing, i had to defrost my car at 6:45am before work and I had to scrape the windows again when i left work! not cool!!! (no pun intended)
now im all for a winter...christmas time...wrapping up warm in toasty blankets..drinking hot chocolate while the fire roars - what i am not for and absolutely do not like what so ever is being cold!
i would so much rather be too hot than too cold, some may disagree some may even call me mad (i can hear cries of 'oooh you can always add more layers if your too cold') but i fear if there is ever another ice age (period not movie) during my life time - well it actually doesn't bare thinking about.
so with being cold a definite temptation to leave your jacket on a wee while longer when you get inside, or put your jacket on several mins too early before you are about to head out into siberia or hat/scarf/mittens (indeed any form of Winter PPE)i might add - then take heed of my nana's firm belief:
"take your(insert PPE of choice)off love or you'll never feel the benefit when you go outside"
all keep warm tips received gratefully..
that is all xx

pretty paper..

i used to love love love making paper dolly chains when i was little so how super sweet would it be to have them as your bridesmaid invite...and the little peg is the so cute! oh sigh! how will i ever cope when i get married!!!!
just imagine receiving this through the post asking you to be bridesmaid...not only would you wee a little because weddings are so much fun (& someone you loved would be getting hitched - always lovely!) but you'd also get to see who was on team bridesmaid with you! swoon Y
