Hi Everyone, Hope you all had a great Easter break. Ours was a bit disappointing to be honest, Tim's Dad and Step mum arrived on Good Friday, but his Dad was ill throughout the visit and never really came out of the bedroom - that, coupled with the extreme temperatures, snow and hail meant we didn't really get to go out anywhere - Sunday morning saw Tim and I wrap up and head off to the first car boot sale of the season, only to find it had been cancelled which surprised me as the sun briefly shone on Sunday morning! - Anyway, enough of that, and on to more exciting things. Firstly, I received a lovely parcel in the post on Saturday from Sophie I was the lucky recipient of her giveaway, and thought I had just won an egg cosy, but Sophie had also sent this lovely bunny and a handmade card too - so thank you Sophie, it was a lovely surprise and made my day!
Secondly, I was also lucky enough to receive 2 awards in one week - The 'You make my Day' award from twiggypeasticks and the 'One in a million friend award' from Claire So thank you to both of you - as you know I have only been blogging for a short while so it really makes my day to know that people out there are interested in my life!
Here also is a sneaky peek of Georgia's room - just look at those gorgeous deep skirting boards which Tim has made from 3 different pieces of architrave so that they match the original ones in the rest of the house. We are hopefully off to choose a carpet this week and once that's laid, all the furniture can be moved back in and the fun details added.
Here also, is a picture of some pretty green shelves I picked up on Ebay, they are in my hallway and just waiting to be filled with lots of pretty things - You can't see from this picture, but I also have a raincoat in exactly the same colour green which is hanging down the hallway and which I don't want to take down to wear, because it looks so good hanging there!
Anyway, I think that's about it for now - my 8 year old has been sick all day which has prevented us from a trip to the dentist (mmm I know what you're thinking, but he wasn't faking it!) but make sure you keep checking my posts, as today I have been the lucky winner of some pay it forward blog candy which I have to pass on to three other people, details to follow .........
