I'm in a hall of fame!

Thank you everyone for your get well messages, I'm still full of this nasty old bug and sitting here trying to type through sneezing, coughing and watery eyes. Oh moan, moan this is defiantly the man flu lol So I'm keeping warm, dosed up, plenty of hot drinks, tlc and telly watching. And I'll get over it soon. Reading all your messages help too, many thanks x

Now I have to share this with you, I entered the Cath Kidston paint an egg competition back in April. I didn't win sadly but look where I got too. Wow I'm in her Hall of Fame. If you click on the picture mines the green egg with little brown bunnies and flowers on it. Top right corner second one in. This has made my day. Did anyone else enter this competition? would love to see your eggtrants lol
I've been tagged today by the fabulous Tillyboo over at 23BeecHill thanks hun, I'll have a go.

And will try to send it onto another 6 of my favourite bloggers.

Here goes.

What was I doing 10 years ago 1998: My first daughter Jade was 3 and at playgroup so I was working part time at New Look as a sales adviser. I was a very small size 8 and could eat anything I fancied (awww those where the days lol).

What are the 5 things on my to-do-list for today (not in any particular order): Get washing on and hung out in the sunshine. Sit and do my blog and read all my favourites leaving comments on them. Take cold/flu medicine every 3-4 hours. Try and get some pegs painted for an order thats awaiting. Sit and sew while watching some old films. Rest and plenty of it.

Snacks I enjoy: Biscuits, Bananas, Cheese on toast and Cupcakes yum!

Things I would do if I where a billionare: I'd give to 3 different charties every year. Start a rescue home for battery hens. Buy a family home not to big just 5 beds, nice garden with room for a summer house, play area, veggie and fruit patch and chickens and Indian running ducks. The kitchen would have to have a Aga, butler sink, wooden work tops, barn door and wood burner. The bathroom big enough for a roll top bath and comfy chair. A playroom for the girls, work room for Ben, studio for me. And a attic bedroom for Jade with her own en-suite (she's a teenager and needs her space lol). We'd have to have a little holiday home by the seaside and beach hut, I'm thinking Whitstable or Broadstairs as they are our favourites. All the family could come and use it. We'd make sure that rest of our family are comfortable for the rest of their lives. As they've all given so much to us it would be lovely to return their kindness. I'd pay for Jade to go to the Brits School as it's one of her dreams. Ben would open a cattery, it's something he's always wanted to do. And me I'd set up a cupcake bakery with gift shop selling lots of beautiful handmade items and nothing from China! Well that was fun to dream and I forgot about my illness while dreaming of all these fab things. And who knows maybe this time next we're all be billionaires hehe!

Places I've lived: Maidstone Kent, East Malling Kent, London, Tonbridge and Chatham (for now).

Ok so now I have to pass it on to 6 other people, sorry if you've been tagged aready and not to worry if you just can't be arsed! lol

Tracey - tcalamity

Natalie - Summer By The Sea

Florence - Flossie Teacakes

Steph - Curlew Country

Alison - Vintage amethyst

Sophie - Sophie Stansfield Designs

In one of my other posts I said about looking for a new car well here it is. Ben's new baby lol We've called it Jack hehe! and isn't it lovely all new and shiny. Our poor old car will sadly be sold off for scrap, it has done us proud. But it was time to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new. And as Ben does all the driving, it's only fair he has something he's comfortable in and we had out grown the old car. Now Ben jokes there is even enough room for a real bubba Jack! hehe! it would take a whole lot of sweet talking and a sparkly thing for that to happen, this miss Mollycupcakes is happy baking only yummy cupcakes not bubbas (for now wink, wink).

Thank you again for all your lovely get well comments, they really mean a lot to me x

Hugs from arms length.

Oh wow ... those eggs are amazing, and I really do think that yours is amongst the very nicest there. Such teeny bunnies - very cute.

Sorry to hear you're all phlegmy still - hope it clears up soon. The new car is rather swish! x

Congratulations she of Cath Kidston Easter Egg fame!
I thought about entering when I got a flyer through the door, but never got round to it, yours is so pretty!
Your dream house plus house by the sea plus beach hut sounds perfect, it'c just what I would want (minus the cattery!)
Love the new and very shiny jack, I think ben should give you a wedding before you give him a baby jack:) hint, hint.
Hope you get better soon sweetie, Jessx

Love the car, it looks lovely & spacious , hope you can fill another seat!with a small one !

take care X Dom
