The sun is here and it's so lovely :) Bring on summer, how I love it. I really don't like the cold at all. I'm getting sick of wearing so many layers. Gets a bit much after awhile. We might be having lots of sunshine, but inside the house it's total snotville! The kids and hubby have a cold and it's sniffle village here at the minute. Poor things. I must say that even though hubby hates having a cold, he is being very good, not like some men who can't do anything when they have the cold.

Busy day today. Why is it that some weekends nothing happens and then other weekends you have multiple things on at the same time. That was my day today. The oldest had 3 things on, we made 2, but had to shorten the first one and missed the last one altogether. Now tomorrow a quite one spending it all together. Kids totally stuffed. Getting up super early as they do, and having the cold is knocking them about a bit. Hope they get better soon.

Must be off now, very late here. Have been doing some new designs for a mini market I'm attending on Tues. So busy do things for that. Also finishing off a unusal request towel cake. Great to get creative and get the brain working hard.

Enjoy. Thanks for visiting :)

Writing a quick update to let you know how my little one is going. Not long after my last blog post I ended up in the Emergency Department for 5 hours overnight :( He awoke worse than the night before and I took him straight down there. He got in, saw the Dr and was given steroid medication to help him out. It didn't really work that well for a long time. He was so unwell and tired the poor thing. Eventually is started to slowly kick in and they let me take him home with another dose and I was told to keep a close eye on him. His breathing wasn't the greatest for the next 24hrs, but he is now slowly on the mend. No croup anymore, but now has a shocking cold, runny nose, fever, shocking cough. Poor litte thing, he is so strong. We will ride it out, no activities for him for awhile.

Thanks to everyone who helped out us at the hospital and all the well wishes we have received.

Off to bed soon. Just been updating my video with my new logo. You can check it out at

Have a good one!

New News

Good evening everyone. Trying to make it an early one tonight, a bit tired as my youngest has croup. Had a bad night last night and spent most of the day in my arms :( Poor little thing. He was a bit stressed out last night when he awoke with a fever and not being able to breathe. Thankfully after some Nurofen and TLC he calmed down and went back to sleep a couple of hours later. Terrible when your kids are sick. Wish you could take it away from them. Hopefully he gets better soon & I don't have to make a trip down to the Dr's.

New News from my business is that I have an update website. I spent lots of hours on it the other night and changed it all around, hopefully for the better. Well I think so anyway, and so do some of my likers on FB. I would love for you all to drop by and check it out. Thanks.

Here is a preview of my new name/logo. What do you think?!

Have a great night!

I had a BIG WIN today which I am still in shock over! I was invited to join in a giveaway with . I completed what we had to do and emailed my entry off not expecting anything. Then tonight when I put the kids to bed I logged onto my email account & there it was a message saying CONGRATS LOVE YOU WERE THE LUCKY WINNER ! 

I didn't know what to think so I logged onto the blog & sure enough there was my name in big letters saying that I had won. Then I logged onto their FB page and it was on there too! I couldn't believe it! How lucky!

Now comes the hard part of deciding what to choose with my winnings!! Looking forward to it though!
A big thankyou to Burlesque Pin-Up Couture and well done to everyone that entered.

Have a great night everyone :)

It may be short lived, but how I am loving this fantastic weather at the minute! I am loving the sunshine and the warmth it is bringing! Bring on summer. We didn't really have one last year, so hoping this year is so much warmer. I have spent so much time outside, so much better than being stuck indoors.

I took my youngest to the lake the other day to feed the ducks and saw a very strange thing. The ducks weren't very hungry, think they have been overfed by everyone getting out and about in the nice weather. So there was a piece of bread floating on the surface of the water. Then up came a huge fish and started eating the bread! I was shocked! It returned to nibble on the bread about 5 times, which we both watched. Amazing the things you see when you take the time to stop and slow down and enjoy life.

I hope you are all enjoying this lovely weather. Enjoy the wonderful sunshine while it lasts. Have a good one :)
