A while ago I read someones blog (whilst hopping and now can't find!!) they mentioned a website that would store all your bookmarked favourites, contacts etc so you still had them if you changed provider...does anyone have a clue??
So until sorted I won'tbe able to post properly, but I'm still reading - just not commenting xx
Pay it Forward update. I'll be posting out a little something to Mary at SewHotMitMot very soon. As Mary was the only person to take part from my post (I got in at the end I reckon!!), I decided to make another 2 somethings and randomly post to someone. So if I have your address (blog and/or forum friends!!) you could receive a bit of post :)

But - at least I'm achieving something!!
This manky ex- bathroom cabinet in a tasteful bottle green colour was won and collected by myself a few weeks ago. (for the princely sum of £3.20!!)
Decision made - no more painting tonight - I am such a lightweight!! I got some great chick lit from the CS at the weekend....so I may fill my head with fluff (girls starts story having been dumped - girl changes career and moves to country - ex trys to come back but girl torn as has fallen in love with local vet/architect/doctor - girl lives happy ever after with vet/architect/doctor - the end!!! Or variation on this theme lol!!) Sometimes only chick lit will do :)

I made a fabric bucket in 'spring' colours (artistic licence included!!) and popped a trimmed facecloth and soap in it.

All wrapped up in the lovely fabric you can see - a little something to brighten up my dusting experience...a sewing kit in vintage packaging and some CK spots...tissues and a mirror.
(picture taken in beirut...aka the loft conversion....aka the big boys bedroom!!! The green was chosen by themselves and every time I am up there I regret leaving the choice to them!!its not just green ...its GREEN!!!)
These are the pillowcases Mary got for me...after much debate chez us about new bedlinen - we/I decided on plain white with non matchy pillowcases and I fell in love with the CK boats.
bit too tempting for picking at when you walk by though!! They didn't last long!

So a discussion took place as to whether or not I was a bit odd for keeping them....I was also told that there were 2 in a little pot on the kitchen windowsill (and who says men never notice anything!!).
I won't be getting rid of these I shall pop them in to the big boys memory box - as I told my husband "I made them!!" My body made those teeth, that chewed those first bits of bread, and bit their brothers faces (Alex!!). Also this note...I remember him coming out of school devastated aged 7...his tooth had got lost in the cloakroom...so he sat down and wrote this note for the tooth fairy. Makes me a little sad that all that innocence has gone!! I have a friend who has the crinkled up rotted umbilicus that dropped off her newborn, so teeth don't seem quite so strange!! (for the record I would have kept the umbilicus too but was told NO WAY!!)

When I have done this I'm going to put up my little collection of Easter trimmings, and I need to go out this week and find my Easter tree branch too, then I'll be ready :)
Back to the sewing!!
