Real Life

Real life has taken over at the moment in our household!

I have so much that I want to write about on the blog, but at the moment I just have not had time. But I will, the light is opening at the end of the tunnel and the mayhem has nearly finished!

So what has been happening that has made me be so busy? More

101 Things in 1001 Days Number 4 done!

Well it is official I have completed the fourth item off my 101 Things in 1001 Days List and I am so pleased.

I completed the first three very quickly but the others, are all ones that are going to take a bit of time, organising the home, is a work in progress, renovating the back garden work in progress. Sorting out the clothes, and toys work in progress. So there will be a time soon when all of these things are finished and I can tick off a load of things at once. But for now there is just one more thing to say that I have done. More

My Crafts

It is Writing Workshop time and I have chosen Prompt number 5 Tell us about something, or show us something that you do really, really well and are proud of.

Passions gone but not forgotten

When I was a little girl I had a dream, to write a book and design. I didn’t care what I designed I remember when I was 14/15 I designed a wedding dress, my GCSE design was redesigning a hotels kitchen. It didn’t bother me I was always redesigning and repainting my room.

As a painter and decorator my father used to despair. Many a time he would come home from work and my bedroom would be deposited in the hallway and I would be painting, I remember vividly his face when I was rag rolling my room in green paint. He wasn’t happy, my dad likes magnolia! You can imagine his face.

I loved doing it and I always felt free doing it. More


Today has been my birthday, and I have had a lovely day. Got spoilt as per usual, with lots of chocolate and had a nice meal with my parents, Mr L and Baba.

I can’t believe that I am in my last year of my 20’s oh that sounds scary and with a one year nearly 18 month old baby! I remember when I was at school I wrote a list of things that I wanted to do by the age of 30! I found it the other day and this is how it pans out; More

New Year. New Me

Well I have read peoples blogs today and have had so much fun doing it. But it means that I haven’t done any housework, as am preoccupied with reading Blogs. Not a good idea.

One blog that really struck a cord was  by Josie. It made me think that I haven’t actually made any resolutions or plans for this year, and I have so many things that I want to do. I know that it is a bit late but I was thinking that if I don’t put something down I know that I will end up starting one thing and not finishing it and carrying on that cycle. So that when 2011 arrives I wont have actually completed anything I will just have a load of non starters, and I really don’t want that.

So I have thought about this all evening, and this is what I have come up: More
