Work overload

Yesterday I pulled an all-dayer helping open up a new restaurant (not McDonalds!!! just love this 1960’s ad) & today I have another all-dayer so I’m afraid this week I’m skipping Sunday Sweetness. Don’t worry I’ll fix you all up with a good dose of Pink in the next couple of days! Don’t forget if you leave a comment in Saturday’s post you have a chance to win the surprise giveaway!!!


Beautiful Cherry On Top

So how amazed was I when I logged in & saw that the lovely Rebecca had left me a comment to tell me that she had picked me for a Beautiful Cherry On Top Blogger Award! (She has amalgamated the Beautiful Blogger Award with the Cherry On Top Award)! I would like to pass it on to the following 3 as I think that they are all beautiful blogs… 1. Kisses and Cross Stitches…. 2. Holy Comfort! & 3. Postcards from Dreamland. Thank you Rebecca it is so nice to get these! Speaking of other bloggers, todays photo colourfest is for Chelsea (favourite colour = purple on lime green) & Alex (favourite colour = yellow) hope you enjoy it girls! My second proudest moment this week (after getting theses awards of course!) was on Thursday evening when I cooked dinner for Mr J. He loves meatballs & I found a great recipe for Moroccan meatballs so I had a go & they turned out yummy! I served them with cous-cous stuffed peppers & a salad of Rocket, Watercress, Parsley & Coriander. The meatballs themselves were simply minced lamb, garlic & parsley but I simmered them in tinned tomatoes, ground cumin, ground coriander & cayenne pepper with more garlic (I love garlic!) & fresh coriander & they tasted great. So so simple & Mr J was over the moon! I could almost be a Domestic Goddess 😉 PS. To celebrate my surprise award I’m going to have a surprise giveaway! I shall pick a winner from those of you that leave a comment on this post to receive a surprise bundle through the post… Good Luck! xox


Pink Wednesday

sources 1,2,3,4 & 5 all found on weheartit although if you look closely at 1. it has Claire Penn photography waterstamped across it… check her out she is very talented! 6&7 are both Bleubird Vintage finds… how much do I want those boots? They are absolutely gorgeous! 8 is a CommonThreadz tee… they are only $38 each, are made in print runs of 250 & for every tee bought a school uniform is given to a child in need. Check them out! What is your favourite colour? PS. We had another tidying spree today & now Mr J has his own little office (in the teeny corner between the guest loo & the utility wall) which he is very happy with because the sun no longer shines on his computer screen! Now the bookcase is in the living room… I need another one I have soooo many books! PPS. Why is it that the minute I have to leave the house to go to work the sky turns an ominous shade of grey…??!

Today…

I have been a busy little bee! Up at 8.30 am on my day off! Spent an hour this morning reading my favourite blogs over marmite on toast & a cup of tea & then got a mad urge to clean the kitchen! So busy i got with some hot water, tea tree oil & vinegar (old school) & showed Mr J how to clean a microwave the easy way! I caught up with The Vampire Diaries, recorded Murder She Wrote (I’m watching that in a minute!) & uploaded my latest photographs… 1. cute ornaments I thrifted whilst in Norfolk, 2. me in my Pineapple dress (taking pictures of yourself is awkward!), 3. pretty napkins that I also got in Norfolk. 4. is a onesie that I’ve done a very childlike design on… (shouldv’e ironed it before I took this pic!) my plan is to add some embroidery to it too so it’s a Work In Progress, 5. is another WIP, I’m just tidying it up but I like it alot & I think there will be more of these to come! Final pic is a finished necklace (yay!) available here… Off to relax now! xox
