a little run out..........

to Petersham Nursery
(fast becoming the Ladies of Berko town's retreat).
It's a wonderful place full of inspiration.
There are plants (obv!), indian artifacts and
must-have cupboards
(my love of cupboards knows no bounds!)
thanks for a lovely day L&D

Happy St Dwynwen's day

on this the welsh valentines day...........

My choice of gifts would have to include a welsh love spoon 
by the super talented Buddug Wyn Humphreys.  
I just love her work.
(are you listening Mr Cheese?)

Well what a week!
Fluffy youngest had braces fitted last week.  What a palaver!
She has a mouth full of ulcers, is not eating properly  
(she's going to fall down the gap in the floorboards) 
and is thoroughly, massively, hugely miserable.
Large-haired eldest had a hospital consultation to discuss
his allergy blood test results.
She took a deep breath and said he is NEVER to eat nuts!
(average person tests 0.25 allergic to hazelnuts.....he tested a MASSIVE 45.9)
He's gutted as he's never going to have a nutella-fest ever again!

Dr's appointment for me today......whoop whoop!

x  Happy friday lovely peeps (let's hope it doesn't rain)  x

a nice cup of tea.........

if it's good enough for Sherlock to drink out of 
then it's good enough for me!
(i'd already 'pinned' this beautiful tea set, then I spotted Sherlock 
serving Moriarty his tea in one on this week's episode)

lovely packaging

as a packaging designer I collect, mr cheese prefers the word 'hoard', all manner of paper loveliness. 
These beauties were bought in Spain a few years ago........ 
the chocolate has long gone!
I just love the hand-written type.

today my lovely boy turns into a T E E N A G E R !
We have shown him clips of Harry Enfield's 'Kevin' and warned him that on no account must he come to live with us.
Just got to wrap a few birthday presents and brace myself for a room full of teenage boys and an xbox

x Happy Birthday sweet boy x

project 366

As if I didn't have enough deadlines and jobs to do,
I thought I'd sign up to Develop 2012 
(a photography project to document everyday through a lens for 366 days).
Pop over to the flickr group pool and see the 
days click by in beautiful images.

This was my day 1 - Beautiful Ivy
