This week I have mostly been....

......pottering in the garden

Lots of zinnias have been planted

Oh how I love them

 I grew them for the first time last year

My first little seedling of 2012....a zinnia!!

Does my bum look big in this?....YES IT DOES LADY, too many of the next thing


Stem ginger shortbread from here
highly recommended


 I made these two fabulous commissions
for new baby gifts

A whole stack of needle cases for my shop

All in all a nice week


I have been ‘tagged’ by the lovely Gillian of tales from a happy house
To be honest 
I am a bit of a stick in the mud when it comes to things like this
blog awards and tagging
 I never forward emails to 500 of my closest friends
(not even one)
or  forward a text to all of my contacts to receive riches…
sorry, but I don’t
Having said that though, I am very touched 
that Gillian thought me worthy, thank you Gillian x 
Her blog is gorgeous by the way.....go have a peek if you have a moment

Anyway here are my answers to Gillian's fab questions 
just to prove that I am not a complete grump

Gillian’s questions

1. Tea or Coffee?  
Coffee…definitely coffee, normal tea is yuk although I do like some herbal teas

2. What book are you reading at the moment?    
Tess of the D’Urbervilles, although I am finding it very heavy going, I actually only really got into reading a two or three years ago, I love pioneer stories so if anyone has suggestions, I’d love to hear 

3. Who inspires you?  
Hmmmmm…I have several friends who are a great inspiration to me, the Queen. OBVIOULSY.  Oh and Miranda…love that lady.

4. Do you have a favourite craft?   
That would be like choosing between my children
sorry just can’t answer :o)

5. What is your guiltiest pleasure?    
Sneaking into my pantry, shutting the doors, and eating a chocolate bar in secret…it feels so naughty. That’s not very shocking is it? Hmmmm I think I need to invent a new one!

6. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?  
A wife and a mum…simple as that

7. What is your favourite song?   
This is a tricky one as it changes regularly but I always LOVE this by Eva cassidy

and this one is my current fancy

8. What is your earliest memory?   
Sitting in my pram with my toy penguin dangling from the hood, it rattled when I hit it. Sweet.

9. Do you have a favourite soap opera?   
No…..i really don’t like any soap operas

10. What is your most treasured possession?  
I have a few… My dad’s driving licence, he died when I was only 11, I miss him everyday.  My children's first socks and baby books and family photos.

11. What would you last meal be?   
Three courses?.... that would be CAKE CAKE CAKE

Wishing all you lovely mums out there a very special
Mother's day on Sunday
Hope you get spoilt 

Next time I will have news of a little giveaway 
to celebrate my one year blog anniversary
I really can't beleive its been a whole year!
