there was a little knock at the door earlier and one of our neighbours had brought us a stick of rock each back from their holiday. how sweet!!

i went to speak to a lady at a house development nearby to find out our options for moving house. there arent any. we basically have to sit tight, saving saving saving, waiting for prices to improve. in our rabbit hutch.

marcus is back at work tomorrow, first time in 3 weeks. fingers crossed.

so nearly bummed

i got an email to say my new blythe doll had been cancelled due to low product availalability. noooooo. so after a hunt around i found 10 on mimiwoo...well, 9 now.
and lets not forget that michael jackson died last night. honestly, all the crazy fans make me uncomfortable, but i can appreciate he did a lot for music.

start nights tonight. boo!!
baked banana bread which is really yummy.
did my LO for twisted sketches and managed to double up with the next category stories LO too.
we went out looking at houses. due to humungous prices, its doubtful we can move yet, but i like to look and see what there is.

marcus is a little better each day. we're still waiting for him to be assessed by the community team but my man is coming back. he still gets panicky and his speech sometimes suffers but he's getting there.

we went to see the vicar on monday so now have to think of another 1-2 hymns and finalise the readings we want. we wont see him again until the 1st sept so we need to think hard. (pic of the church).

bought this fab denim dress today. looks amazing with my red and white striped leggings, which i call my pirate leggings.

crud x 100

im taking the other half to the doctors tomorrow. lots of stuff going on here and he's not coping well with it at all. hopefully they can refer him to someone.

Saturday, 13 June 2009


thats the feeling in my house today. crud. marcus has labrynthitis which i had 18 months ago and so is feeling rubbish and dizzy and sick all the time. its been a week so far. he doesnt do poorly very well, so i hope he picks up soon!

we went and bought a new lamp today and when we got to the til, it was half price..plus..i had a 15% off voucher. uber cheap lamp!

did a couple more blythe hats today and have listed them in my etsy. had to increase the price by 50cents as after paypal take their cut, there's nothing to cover postage. $3.50 is still reasonable. ive also made a pink bow brooch.

Wednesday, 10 June 2009


its taken me hours but ive finally set up a basic shop on etsy. at the moment theres an adult beret and a few dolly hats, but there will be more.


  • love martha stewart weddings.
