Unpacked, watered and rested.

Just got back from up north this afternoon, I had a lovely time, lots of catching up done and a little bit of retail therapy :) The Girls Aloud concert was brilliant...such a good show and I have to say that the 5 male dancers that they had with them were rather tasty ;) We had a look round the shops in the afternoon (I made the small purchase of a work shirt, dress and top) and then we went for a slap up steak at Frankie and Benny's, polished off with a generous slice of vanilla cheese cake!! YUM :P

The other half was out when I got back but I received a lovely welcome from the 2 kitty cats. Especially my baby Nell. I started unpacking, sorted out my clothes and went into the spare room, came back and found someone making a little statement:

Nell: Please don't go away again Mamma, if I sit in this bag you cant!!

Me: Are you coming down stairs for a cuddle Nelly?
Nell: Hmmmm yes please Mamma :)

And when I came downstairs to take a couple of photos someone had decided to get snugly straight away. She looks very contented don't you think?

Here is a photo of the magazine tote I bought from Matalan, its quite large....perfect I think for my sewing room.

There is a gorgeous embossed flower pattern on the front, you can just about see it here. It will go lovely with the wallpaper I have chosen.

And last of all I managed to get the last bits of hand sewing done for my 'Freestyle' swap (cant show you yet though) and knitted lots more rectangles for Nell's new blanket. This is a photo of the rectangles that I've managed to get sewn together so far......lots more still to do.

Lots of emails and orders to get sorted now so best be off to get them done.


  1. Neil is adorable! And I might have to make a trip to Matalan to get one of those magazine holders for myself :)

  2. awwww!! i love cats but they make my eyes swell up, makes my skin grow welms and my head get a migraine!! stoopid allergies!! glad you had a good time

  3. oh oh I can't wait to see the freestyle swap treasure !
    I hope you'll get a little parcel from me soon. It's on its way.
    lots of love
    ag :)
