I know, I know all that butter can't be good for me or my waist line, but it's so yummy and it makes me happy, so it can't be all that bad....

I hope you've all been well, I have been popping in to see you all but haven't had a chance to share with you my birthday trip to Copenhagen. As soon as I got back to the UK I had to get my working head on as I had my first ever market the following Saturday, to say I was stressed would be an understatement! And, as usually happens when I don't stop to breathe, immediately after that I got sick! Anyhow, I'm back and looking forward to sharing my Scandi trip with you...
When we arrived on the Friday it was grey and wet...very much like home!
We dropped our bags at our hotel (which was gorgeous by the way) and went to explore...
Tummies full and a bit tired we strolled back to our hotel. We had a lovely afternoon nap and then showered and got ready to paint the town red!
and we'd seen on our earlier walk. We enjoyed live music, nachos and a few too many of these...

So, as a creative break I have been making these pretties...
...who doesn't love pink frills...
...made with love?
Oh, and I managed it; my whole week of blogging. I have to say it wasn't too bad. I actually think I became more creative and thoughtful during the process and I was expecting the opposite.

Originally 15 pounds each(!) I bought the last 4 for 1.59 each!!!
I love a bargain :O)
Recently I have been lamenting the fact that I don't have a birdcage to sit in my bay window (go figure) anyway, yesterday I had to pick Chris up from the station. On my way to get him he called to say he'd missed his train and would be on the next one.
No worries, the station is right round the corner from my favourite place; TK MAXX (Winners to my Canadian friends and TJ Maxx to my American buddies) so in I pop with my eye on the time I make a beeline for the home department. Low and behold there sitting on it's lonesome and priced at a magnificent 12.99 was my hearts desire...
It was love at first sight.
The last thing I have to show you is actually something I'm working on myself - although knowing my work ethic it may be a while before I get to enjoy the finished product...
See you tomorrow,

How have you been?
Did you have a good weekend?
We had one sick child, a night out with "The Girls" and a rained-off rugby tournament. So, all in all, quite an eventful weekend.
During the weekend I also did a lot of blog reading and decided that mine needs a bit of a shake-up.
I am a commitmentphobe (if that's actually a word) and I've always tried to avoid tying myself down - it's a wonder I ever managed to get married!
When I started blogging, I told myself that I wouldn't let it take over my life, that I would just do what I felt comfortable with and that has led to me blogging generally once a week.
On reflection, I have decided that I need a shake up. I need to say more. Get out there, stop 'hiding' behind single posts. So, for the next week I am going to blog everyday, at least once a day.
I know to some of you that may not sound particularly adventurous or challenging , but for me it will be an exercise in writing, time management and photography that I really need. So, good or bad, big or small, I am going to put it out there.
It's not about quantity over quality, it's about finding the quality in my everyday life.
See you tomorrow!
