Another magazine post

The last couple of months I haven't been enjoying Country Living how I used too!! Don't get me wrong I had a slightly racing pulse when it plopped on the door mat each month but once opened there has only been the odd thing inside to tickle my pickle :)
But then this came - the December/Christmas issue - and CL has redeemed itself.
I had to go to A&E with the eldest boys facial injury (see last post!!) yesterday teatime so I shoved it in my bag. Every page got an ooh! or a 'look, isn't that gorgeous!!' Surprisingly, 13 year old boys can show some enthusiasm for gorgeous things, especially this...


This was met with a - 'why can't our fireplace look like that!'

(because I haven't got a stylist coming to my house sweetie to clear up the debris of 4 stinky boys xx)



I apologise for another magazine post this month but look at this picture - does anything say Christmas/Winter more than him??



And the winners from the summers 'what you gonna do with an empty Bonne Maman jar' comp were announced....and I love this idea...



I have lots of non Maman jars so I may experiment with this.


There are tons of fabulous Christmas ideas for decoration (love the red hanging stars from John Lewis) and foodie ideas too.


We didn't have long to wait in A&E (the benefits of a dedicated childrens and young persons consultant!) so I had to have an early night with my magazine, so thats the ironing not done again. Oh well priorities eh!!

Oh and his face is fine - nothing broken!

I'm glad all is okay. I hesitated over the CL magazine, but I think I will get it now. It's so annoying that you can't open them in the shop.
We're swap partners in Melmel and Lesley's swap!! At least, I think I've got that right. Very exciting! Will get planning. x

I've said exactly the same about CL on my blog. It's reassuring to know that It is not me being fussy. It had lost its sparkle hadn't it?
