Moments to cherish...

This morning I went to the post depot on my way to work to pick up a parcel......exciting, I love snail mail!

It was a swap from the lovely Isobel

I was so excited opening all the parcels....its like she knows me so well!!! I loved everything!

2 Yankee Candles, a box of buttons and a cute flower ring.....

...a mug, the cutest salt and pepper shaker ever :)...

...a butterfly bookmark, handmade crochet heart garland and a decorative heart (which is now hanging on my wardrobe)

Oh, and some Chocolate Eclairs but they have been eaten!!!

Thank you so much Isobel, I've been really spoilt, yours will be with you soon and hope you like it just as much

BBQs and sunshine...

I love BBQs!

Beautiful weather over the past few days, so time for a couple of BBQs in the garden. 


I'm not a massive fan of sunbathing (unless I'm on holiday, next to a pool with a cocktail!!) but I happily sat in the garden reading my book on Sunday.

 I love a good book and am currently hooked on Karen Rose. I managed to get 4 of her books for £3.50 from the old charity shop. Bargain! 

We also had a cheeky game of Snakes and Ladders with Deakon before dinner....I won!!!

Hope you all had a good weekend too

A bit of sea air...

Random day off from work today so we headed down to the sea...I love the beach!


It was slightly windy and rained a tiny bit but it was nice to be out in the sea air and get away from the office. I did, stupidly, wear flip flops so had to walk across the rocks with no shoes on so it took me about half an hour but it was a good laugh!!

Wait for me!

We walked about 4 miles in total, from the car, all the way along the beach to the main town and then back again.....via the chip shop of course! :)
Going to sleep well tonight with all that fresh air!!!

Jubilee swap...

My Jubilee Swap parcel came from the lovely Emily, we had a bit of a 3 way mix up but it's sorted itself out nicely and my parcel will be winging its way to Jewel this week ;)

I love getting mail and this parcel was gorgeous, so thank you so much, Emily!!
