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!

Cornwall,St. Ives,Eden Project

Hi all, yes I am still alive! I can't believe it's been so long since my last post!I have wanted to but so many things have happened in the last few weeks, I didn't know where to start.Luckily they are all lovely things so I'll tell you about my holiday in Cornwall.We left the floods behind us( I live in Witney in Oxfordshire and it was quite bad) and set off for sunny Cornwall ,HEY ,we were optimistic.My favourite place in Cornwall is St. Ives but it gets so busy so we stayed in Penzance , which has the lovely St.Michael's Mount only three miles away!We drove into St Ives quite a few times but you seem to have to arrive there by 10 am to find a parking space!Anyway I still love it,the beaches are gorgeous, the sea is a beautiful colour.You'd think it was the Mediterranean until you dipped your toes in Brrr...It's bloody freezing! It took me half an hour standing with it lapping around my shins before I plucked up the courage to wade in up to my thighs! Guess what,we had one day of sunshine and we burnt, it took us by surprise I think, you know , having not seen it for so long.We did lots of walking, eating , sightseeing, eating,relaxing, eating.The cream teas were gorgeous, as were the pasties although I had to wrestle with a seagull to keep mine! the little Bugger tried to swoop from behind and catch me unawares ,but I fought for that pastie I tell you, and he only got a mouthful of paper HAH!Seriously though the seagulls are becoming a right pain ,constantly taking food from children in their buggies.No wonder there aren't many cafes where you can eat outside!

On the last day , also my sons Birthday we decided to go to the Eden Project on the way home.IT. WAS.AMAZING.We all loved it.For those who don't know there is a a Outdoor Biome which has a temperate climate (like ours), a Mediterranean Biome and a Rainforest Biome.Believe me it is fantastic for children and adults alike, it's just so interesting and very visual too!It's so well laid out with lots of lovely places to eat and lots of clean toilets(in case you need to go)We took lots of photo's,which for some reason, Blogger wont let me post at the moment!I shall be back with piccies later in the week!
