A lot to Say!

Hi all,

this post may be a long one as I have such a lot to say.We had a wonderful few days in Brighton,What a fantastic place!It has a very relaxed atmosphere and there are loads of things to do there!The pier was great, we had an ice cream and walked along the promenade.Our favourite place was the Brighton Pavilion,which was gorgeous, especially the dining room and the music room.we also went to the marina to walk off our full English breakfast!The only thing I was gutted about was that I spotted a Cath Kidston shop, it's a new one which wasn't opening until Wednesday and we were returning home on Tuesday,Typical! I practically ran up to the door in excitement too!Never mind I can always go to the one at Bicester. Anyway I highly recommend Brighton and will be returning again!

I must show you some of my beautiful Birthday presents too
my parents,brother and sister and their families all clubbed together to buy me this lovely table and chairs, how lucky am I!They also bought me this sweet little one cup teapot!
and this too! Ive wanted to get a wire cake stand for ages but the shop kept selling out!

I was so touched by these lovely presents as my family had obviously put a lot a thought into what to buy me.I love my family. A lot.

Now a while ago I was surprised and pleased to be given a Nice Matters Award by

Started by , the award is to be"awarded to those who are just nice people, good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration!Those that care about others, that are there to lend support or those that are just a positive influence in our blogging world" Thank you so much Shropshire girl! Now I have to nominate 7 blogs,this is the bit I find difficult! There are so many I like to read and for many different reasons.Some cheer me up and make me laugh, some for their crafting skills and some to look at pictures of their fabulous homes! Anyway, here goes , I love them all!

Hello Rubyred
just popping by to say thanks for nominating me, although, i'm not too sure what I'm supposed to do now (I'm still relatively new to blogging, can you tell?). Do I nominate someone too???

I'm so pleased you got one of those cake stands, they are just great. And the table and chairs look lovely too.
It's lovely that you had a nice time in Brighton but a shame you didn't get to go in the new Cath Kidston shop. Like you said there is always next time.
Happy birthday to you x

Oh how annoying, that Cath Kidston shop being closed!
You were a spoilt little bunny on your birthday, what lovely presents!

My shop was in Watchet last year but I did alot more brown furniture, and traditional antiques so it might not of caught your eye, hopefully you'll visit again and come and see me!
