keeping the momentum going

I'm not feeling well today so have spent the day snuggled on the couch. I thought I'd blog some more recent pics. I love blogs with lots of pictures in them :O)

Christmas was lovely and I managed a bit of craftyness with some new stockings for the kids. I left it very last minute but I was super pleased with the results.


My DS, DD and I made some lovely orange pomanders which sat nicely next to a lovely Christmas scented pillow I got from Mary Poppins.

The tree was small but I liked it.  It needs to be in this house!!  We made popcorn tinsel and some saltdough decorations.  I also made a gingham present sack, as the lovely Mary P sent me some spare red gingham tea towels after I saw what she had done with them.  Easy peasy to make, even for me!

Christmas saw some lovely presents come my way.  I was very spoiled.  I got a radio I had wanted for ages, here it is in situ


It goes so well with my bargain of the decade (lucky we're into a new one, maybe I'll get another bargain!!), which is a Dualit toaster I picked up from the car boot sale for £2!!!!  Yes you read that right two pounds!!  Of course our scabby kettle packed up the same day so I had to go get a new one to match it all :O)


It would have been fab to be a colour other than cream, as you know I have a cream and beige *everything* but hey ho.   It still looks good when the kitchen is neat and tidy :oD

Well it took me till the day after I wrote this to sort all the pics out, but I've also found the camera charger so plans for more pic filled posts in the near future.

  4. Here are my reasons.though Hogans have stimulated a million dollars imitations, Hogan Sneakers the originals are even now the greatest.For the modern, fashionista in you, take a look at their new wedge heel designs.If they are not water proof, you would need to take an extra step in doing that on your own.What's more, Franklin Marshall Clothes seldom people will be dynamic in cold weather.In order to work as intended, snowhogan must not be allowed to accumulate snow on the tops.From Converse styles to lightweight hogan, D&G glasses plimsoll hogan really have it all this spring.
