On Sunday morning after a lay in I was awoken with kisses and a cuppa tea. And then presented with these lovely cards, yummy cupcake shaped chocolates, cute egg bowl with a bunny inside, beautiful flowers and tulip bulbs.
I was then taken to one of my favourite places (Ikea) lol I know, I know it's a shop but I did need some more pink storage boxes. And we all had their yummy meatball, chips and sauce hmmm! after coming away with the boxes and a new wooden toilet seat hehe! yes we needed a new one! Ben asked so where to next my lady? We ended up looking in a few more shops, two which Ben wanted to go in. A shiny new camera is on the cards for Ben and well deserved honey you work so very hard and I'm so very, very proud of you. My hunter gather. Treat yourself sweetie.
Talking of treats Ben treated me to a yummy vanilla latte and new book called A Home For All Seasons from a huge book store I just can't resist popping into when we go to Lakeside. Thank you baby x What a fabulous day for me. I love you all for making it so special. X
We did get up to some other things this weekend as well. A trip to one of my favourite little villages West Malling in Kent I grew up around here and it holds lots of lovely memories for me. This is one of the parks I used to play in and walk across to meet my Mum after she'd finished her shift in the old peoples home she worked. And now it's lovely to take my own family there for walks and play. Daisy is photoed here doing one of her favourite things, picking daisies by the hand full.We fed the ducks and other watery feathered friends. And they also nearly ended up with a little Daisy to nibble, as she took a drive forward straight for the water but I grabbed her just in time. Argh! the joys of a nearly two year old hehe! Molly and Jade enjoyed it. Especially when we gathered handfuls of pussy willow that had been cut down. It now looks very pretty in a old jug on the dining room table.
After calling into the Ragamuffin's craft cafe and making a note of my stock left, giving the owner a bit of money to say thanks for selling it for me and making arrangements to bring in more next week, we walked though the town, looked in a couple shops and ate some chips. And ended up here at Frog Lane. What a great name, I'd love to live there lol
And this house photoed here will do. With it's pretty little stream, tulips and daffs growing down the side. Just big enough for our little family. lol A room each and a kitchen big enough to cook up a storm, a play room for the girls, den for Ben and studio for me. Of course this is all just in my head. I don't really know whats inside this gorgeous house but I can dream.
If you're ever in the area, I recommend West Malling, it's a cute little village with some lovely shops and cafes.
I just want to end with a some thank yous. You where all lovely over the whole missed proposal to Ben episode. I will now just have to wait and see if he pulls his finger out and asks me. (please, please, please) lol
I have also been tagged by the lovely Claire at Serendipity Loves New York and also been given Meme by the totally fabulous Tracy at Cupcakes at Home. I will get around to doing them both I promise.
And I have to hang my head in shame as someone very kind awarded me the You make my day but I'm so very bad that I can't remember who it was. Sorry to who ever it was, life has just gone full throttle with orders and I've got all behind with blogging. Please tell who the wonderful person was and I'll send you a little thank you x
Have a good weekend ladies. See you all soon.
