Five images to share with you whilst I’m away splashing about on the Thames…
1. I love the childlike innocence of this drawing. And I really should start eating kiwi again! Follow the link to Sonicos! flickr for more cute illustrations.
2. I have no idea where I found this Pooh image but I LOVE the quote.
3. Love this tree image by Kailey Lang. Pop over & check out her DeviantArt.
4. So so true. When will we learn the impact we are having on our planet? Will we ever manage to stop being such a throwaway society?
5. Me (aged 16) & my brother (approx 11/12) near the Thames Barrier in London a million zillion years ago. Check out my pink jelly shoes!
Don’t forget about the August giveaway guys!

Drummer Boy & I are departing on a trip in one of these today…
Yep, we’ve hired a houseboat out for two nights & are off down the Thames!
We’re very excited… we’ve bought tons of provisions & charged our cameras & phones. Fingers crossed for the weather!
PS. It looks as though the worst of the rioting is over. My heart goes out to those in Manchester who had an awful night last night 😦

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!!!

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
