134 / 365 – Ella’s typing

Ella’s been on my laptop tonight; when I came down from getting them all in bed, I found this left open… I think the last line is supposed to say love you mum (even if it doesn’t, that’s what it means now!) and I melted when I saw it 😀 Going to have to show her…

Another cheat today; I didn’t take this photo because I’m not in Derbyshire with the kids but it has been taken today and it’s so lovely I had to use it. This is Ella with the new addition to our family, my cousin’s new baby, Ethan 🙂

My first giveaway :)

If you read my garden post yesterday, you’ll know that I’ve decided not to grow vegetables in the garden anymore. We’re going to turn the raised vegetable bed into a flower bed. I can’t wait to see loads of different kinds of flowers in the garden but what I’m most looking forward to is being able to…

132 / 365 – Purple & pink puppy

No, I haven’t dyed a poor poodle purple and pink!….I made a puppy birthday cake today for Aiden’s half sister and she loved it 😀 My girls also loved it and KayCee said, as she stood staring, “mum, I realllllly want to touch it, but don’t worry, I won’t”! They’ve all gone to Aiden’s dad’s for…

Redakai – A Review

I’d never heard of Redakai but of course, my 12 year old son had and he was really pleased when I showed him the pack we’d been sent to review! I’ve always been sceptical about these kind of card games. Aiden started collecting Pokemon cards a few years ago and I just saw them as…

131 / 365 – Another flower photo!

I can’t remember what bulbs I planted last year. I’m also not very good at remembering to label plants so I can’t tell you what this is a photo of! All I know is that it’s pretty and I love it 🙂 I’ve been out in the garden today and got quite a lot done. We’ve decided…

130 / 365 – Random photo

I nearly forgot to take today’s photo and I’m too tired to get up and find something to photograph so here’s my hand, holding a delicious glass of Baileys* 🙂 *Well to be totally honest, all Irish cream is called Baileys in this house, even when the real name is Country Meadow/Irish Country Cream/Country Cream/Irish…

Read 100 books #7 – Dracula

My 7th book (hope I’m not confusing anyone with already having posted books 8 and 9 before this one! The girls and I read 2 other books while I was working my way through this one) and the choice for April was Bram Stoker’s Dracula. It was a free kindle download from Amazon. It was written in the…

129 / 365 – Welcome, baby Ethan :)

We’d like to congratulate my cousin Rachel and say welcome, baby Ethan 😀 He’s her third baby, joining the cheeky Lucas and beautiful Brooke. As we live in Lincoln and my family live in Derbyshire, I have to be content with a photo from facebook for now but hopefully I’ll get cuddles soon 😀 I have to say…

128 / 365 – Bleeding Heart

I’m cheating a bit today. It’s the first time I’ve posted a photo that I’ve not actually taken myself but I couldn’t resist using this one that Ella took today. We all love these plants and I was very impressed with the quality of the picture; she usually can’t stand still long enough for it…
