Very, very proud of my biggest boy at the moment. As some of you know we've been having problems with his, um, choice of cigarettes?! Six days now no smoking. Just stopped. And the change - well, we all noticed the change before we knew the reason for it. I know it's early days, but it's a start :)

Little treat from Robert Dyas. The white barrel did have tea in it, was reduced to only £3.00 and ended up in my basket. Well, would have been rude not to. Then, when I took this photo, I couldn't help smiling at the collection of bits from all over. The fruit bowl is from our last trip to Italy and the rest is all picked up from here and there. Only the teapot and big jug actually match. Reminded me of my kids - step sons; birth sons; adopted daughter; God children; and hopefully foster kids - A mosaic of family life :) I really am blessed (although sometimes I forget that).Oh, and the table cloth? Well I have fallen in love with a couple of Cath Kidston ones, but they work out at around £50 each - I don't like them THAT much! So instead, this one is from The Range for a fiver :)
Not quite sure where I have found the time, but these turned out bloody gorgeous! Amaretti biscuit cupcakes with Amaretti cream cheese icing. I died and went to Heaven!
Latest book was "The Shakespeare Curse" which I really enjoyed. Shakespeare, witchcraft and a thriller. Took a couple of days - blasted work keeps getting in the way! So that's 6 books so far (I've reread last HP and last Twilight as well). 52 by the end of the year is still a possibility, but this thing I get paid for takes up a lot of time!


  1. Well done to your son Suzanne! Fingers crossed he manages to stay free of the weeeeeed!
