Designing t-shirts

Shell Louise

The girls were sent a Fruit of the Loom t-shirt each from buytshirtsonline, a t-shirt transfer each and some fabric paints for them to use to design their own shirts.

It was a great activity for them to do in half term and they really enjoyed it :)

The t-shirts are excellent quality and the transfers were really easy to use. Kaycee did hers on her own but I helped Ella because she's not known for her ability to concentrate on the task at hand!















Please note: We were sent the t-shirts, transfers and fabric paints in return for a review of the t-shirts. All opinions are my own.

Project 365 - February 21st - 27th

Shell Louise


February 21st - Kaycee snuggling up to Ducky. She's had this duck since she was born :)


February 22nd - Ant's eldest, Jonathan and his bride to be, Elaine. 
You're probably wondering why they're cutting the cake when they're not married yet.
If you are, you can read about it here and see more photos :)


February 23rd - The Walking Dead.
Enough said!


February 24th - Ella reading at bedtime while wearing her Pudsey ears :)


February 25th - Jonathan and Elaine gave the kids one each of these Chinese bookmarks.


February 26th - The orchid Ant bought me finished flowering so I cut it but then I worried nothing was happening and thought I'd done it wrong.
I was very excited when I saw this new growth :)


February 27th - I think I've said this before but here it is again.....volunteering at my local St Barnabas charity shop is not doing my bank balance any favours!
I work on the book section and get to have first pick when the books come in. I can't stop buying books and we're rapidly running out of storage space at home!

Planting summer bulbs

Shell Louise

We've got lots of plans for the garden this year and we're very eager to get started so the other morning, the girls and I decided to plant the summer bulbs Spalding Bulb & Plant Co sent us.

It was cold and frosty but we didn't let it put us off, the girls even still had their night clothes on when we ventured out!

We were sent 5 different types of summer bulbs. I can't remember what they are and I'm not going to check because I like surprises!













Kaycee labelled all the pots without me telling her, in fact, I hadn't even thought of it because I always forget to label them!

All we need now is the summer. I hope it comes soon because although I love winter, I'm over it now and long for some warmth so that being out in the garden doesn't leave me chilled to the bone!

The new look of socialising

Shell Louise

How many of us have found ourselves stuck at the wrong place with the wrong people? Well, this has definitely happened to most of us at some point or the other. Be it at a friend’s wedding or an office party, we have all been there, especially me.

I have even tried going to local clubs and even coffee shops in the hope of meeting interesting people. I am very happy with my blissful life as a writer. Every once in a while I really wouldn’t mind that interesting conversation with someone with similar interests.

I write for a living and most recently I must admit that I have had a fixation on online gaming during my free time. What attracts me most to it is the fact that I have had the chance to meet so many people with the same interests as me through these online bingo sites.
My favorite right now is New Look Bingo.

I have never been a person who liked online gaming or chatting and the thought of meeting people online was absurd to me. Socializing for me meant going out, but after having tried that out more than seven years now, this little experiment of mine has certainly proved promising.

Every evening or whenever I get the time, I just pull out my phone and log in to New Look Bingo. The whole community of people in this site has introduced me to a whole set of good humored people who have been so right from the start. 


Who would have known that playing online bingo is more than just about bingo. It’s about coming together, being happy and having fun. So come join the new party in town and I am sure that you will find out for yourself what I am talking about here is true!

A lovely wedding reception

Shell Louise

Ant's eldest son lives in China and has been with the lovely Elaine for five and a half years. They're planning on getting married in China and had a wedding reception yesterday for all his family here in the UK.

It was lovely seeing Ant's children and their lovely partners all together; it's unusual for that to happen because of work commitments and one being away in China for years!

We wish Jonathan and Elaine a very happy marriage and long life together :)


They had the reception at The Old Palace, Lincoln.




Four of Ant's nine children, Kaycee, Ella, Jervais and Jourdain





This is Ant with his mum, dad, eldest son Jonathan, bride to be, Elaine and all his other children, Jourdain, Jason, Kellyann, Jervais, Jerome, Kaycee, Ella and hiding behind him is Aiden!


Jonathan and Elaine with his cousins, their partners and children.


The beautiful Elaine



Jason with the lovely Gemma



All the food was delicious. I forgot to take a photo of the prawns for the starter.


Gorgeous lavender flavoured shortbread and creme brulee



These beautiful ladies are (hopefully!) the daughters in law to be! Gemma (Jason's girlfriend) is to the left, Elaine to the right, Nettie (Jourdain's girlfriend) at the front and slightly obscurred by the wine bottle, is Emily (Jerome's girlfriend) at the back.
They're all really lovely ladies and we're so happy that the boys have them in their lives.


This is us, Ant with Kaycee, me with Ella and Aiden at the back. The one behind me is Kellyann's partner, Ian.
