Another catch up post :)

Thank You for all your well wishes for my wisdom tooth removal - it wasn't as bad as I thought, i don't resemble elephant man and there isn't the bruising I thought I'd get....I was fine a couple of days after but now all my teeth on that side hurt...a lot!! Now I have a pretty high pain threshhold (10lb2oz with no pain relief lol!!) and although my gorgeous husband thinks I could maybe be milking it...I am whinging a bit about how much pain I am in...and I am very thankful that my other wisdom teeth are all happy where they are lol!!
Whilst I was feeling sorry for myself - the very lovely Mary Poppins sent me a parcel. She had offered to get me some pillowcases to make my life a little easier :) and sent them to me with a parcel of lovelies for me....

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.
And.....check out my boy.......there's a new sherrif in town :) a dribbly sherrif!!!
Thank You Mary - we are both very happy - you are a very good friend xx

(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.
(I have bought the Tesco duvet cover as a spare for when we fancy a change from white!!)

I haven't bought the boys (or anyone) a packaged easter egg this year, instead I copied an idea from last months Country Homes and Interiors and I did them a glass dish filled with assorted chocolate easter shapes and eggs.
bit too tempting for picking at when you walk by though!! They didn't last long!
I also took delivery of the latest CL magazine...did anyone else notice the greetings cards offer?

12 cards for £11 something...less than a pound a card...all images from the magazine...subscribers get a further 10% too...and its always handy to have a few cards in :)
I have a few catch up posts to do...we've had a birthday....and a party....and we are off to Featherdown Farm at the weekend...(I have 3 excited boys...1 of them is only excited if food is involved!!!)

I so badly want to go to Featherdown Farm but think it's out of the question this year. Hope you all have a great time!
I thought 8lb with no pain relief was good, you have my utter most respect.
Lovely goodies from Mary.
Take care

I've not heard of Featherdown Farm but I hope you have a fab time! We are having a joint birthday party for the girls next month at a farm and I think it will be great fun (and less clearing up for mummy, teehee).

Lovely goodies from Mary, I love the pillow cases.

Glad you're not suffering too much with the tooth removal, it does sound scary! And WOW 10Lb2oz!!!! I thought 7Lb13oz with just gas and air was good ;)

Love those pillow cases, how lovely of Mary.

We went to Featherdown farm to visit our friend when they went camping there and it was WONDERFUL!

I hope you feel better soon.

And 10lb 2oz makes me eyes water. ;)
