A Happy Smiley Day!
Today I've had a lovely day. Today was my birthday! I dropped the little people at school and then spent the day with my mum in York, persuing some much needed retail therapy.....
When I awoke this morning I was presented with the following by 'Little Miss H' and 'Master M'
I only got my Pandora bracelet for Valentine's day but I love it love it love it! The kids love choosing beads for it, in addition to todays handbag I also have a band of eternal hearts from the little people for Mother's day and a silver ball inlaid with black hearts from Mr. G. Lush.
Whilst in York we had lunch at the famous 'Betty's Tearooms' and of course went here.....
From my favourite ever ever shop I treated myself to the following, (well Mr. G did the treating actually!)A new more streamlined handbag, I am sick of carting around everything and the kitchen sink in my current CK handbag! Some oven gloves and yummy tea towels for the kitchen, an underbed storage bag (very cute) and a lovely new mug.I also treated myself to these gorgeous hareem/dhoti pants from 'Fat Face' and these cute espadrilles from River Island.
I'm sure like most mum's out there I couldn't leave the little people out so here's what I bought them.
A lovely skirt for 'Little Miss H' from Mexx and cool vest top for 'Master M' also from Mexx. 'Little Miss H' also got a fab yellow cardigan from Joules and 'Master M' got the very blue dream catcher - he keeps having nightmares and then insists on getting in bed with us, he looked at me like I'd gone mad when I told him about dreamcatchers a couple of weeks ago, (a similar look to the one he gave me when I told him his friend was stuck on holiday in Dubai because of a volcano and so 'no' he couldn't go to his house to play!) I just hope it does the trick!
In a sewing update, I have at last completed a small amount of the 'to do' list from my last post but one! I have indeed made a selection of goodies for my friend Dawn over at 'Pop-i-cok' by way of thanking her for my blog graphics. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!
I made her three decorated lavender bags (one of which has one of my crochet flowers on it - woop woop!), a felt cupcake keyring and a felt flower brooch, here are closer pictures.
I am also well on my way with finishing my friends very late birthday goodies but the curtains are still not made. Oh well.
