M&S Royal Jubilee treats

It's amazing how a little bit of sun just lifts the 
spirits isn't it?
There were lots of 'pink bits' on the train and tube 
this morning.....ow!
Hope it's sunny next week too for the Jubilee celebrations.
These are all on my shopping list from M&S

A new crown fit for a Queen

Large-haired eldest always surprises us with last minute
requirements for school.
Yesterday morning (5 mins before leaving) he announced he needed
wire, fairy lights, foil and purple fabric.
Well look what he brought home!
It's a tight fit (cheese family have large heads)
but it glows beautifully.
*nudges Her Maj and advises she wears safety goggles
as it might have her eye out*

lovely books

more from my stash of vintage books.
I particularly love the dedication in one of the books
'To One, from Two Others'

Tell me why I don't like mondays

This week I shall be mostly having a chest infection!  
As if the house of Cheese hadn't had enough snot via Large-haired eldest's coughing/choking virus - now in it's 10th week.
I have taken to my bed and am feeling like poo! 
(actually I look a lot like it too).
Fluffy Youngest has her week long school trip to France coming up. 

 I'm already finding her little notes dotted around the house.  'These are my monday clothes, please do NOT move',  'Pile to be packed' and my favourite attached to the combination lock on her suitcase 'the number of this code is 461 - in case of emergency!'  She's packing her hair-straighteners and I'm already envisaging the school calling to say the Chateau has burnt down due to her leaving them on whilst they trudge around trenches.  I have a week of notes and packing and unpacking coming up! My eldest has given her some shopping tips (you'll remember his amazing watch/chav hat combo from his trip last year).  I have filled their short lives with, what I consider, tasteful wooden toys, and beautifully designed knicks and knacks - if she comes home with a hat with 2 cans attached to drinking straws - then I'm moving into the shed!

I'm still here!
Sorry for lack of posts.
Too much snot, wheeze, aches, pains and general crap.
I'll be catching up on all your blogs with a cup of tea now.
Enjoy the sunshine - he's made a welcome return.
