been busy doing nothing..

But looking after family,  which does seem to take up a lot of time, particularly if you home school…which we do:D. I used to hear a lot of ‘me time’ business  when my eldest went to school, it’s not something I hear anymore really, as the reality is there is no ‘me time’ when you have a family around you 24/7 but I wouldn’t have it any other way:D

Anyway I login after  way too many weeks away and found I have been Liebster’d by the lovely lass over the river at 😀


I now have the time to respond!

So thank  you Abe:)

Her questions are;

1. Would you rather have under floor heating, or be able to walk around your house nakey.
2. If you could have a drone, what would you use it for? (e.g I’d fill it with red apple jelly beans and have it explode over my home…..or an orphanage, ok my home but an orphanage makes me sound like a less selfish person).
3. Do you want to be famous?
4. What do you find most rewarding about blogging?
5. If you had an extra £1000 how would you spend it?

My answers are;

1. I wouldn’t be able to walk around ‘nakey’ without underfloor heating..although I might end up sliding /crawling around on my butt as it is nearly always the coldest part of me…but then I’d have to worry about splinters and dust getting in the wrong holes! so think I’ll just stick with lots of jumpers and a real fire:D

2. Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning then some more cause it never ends!..then I would have time to do something charitable..after I’ve been on holiday:D

3. No…but the wages and perks would be nice

4. Actually it is the interaction with other people via comments, it wasn’t something I thought about when starting but it’s really quite nice:)

5. Realistically food and bills..never give me birthday money (well you can if you want;)) I always spend it on these, and it’s not quite enough  to get my car (Audi R8 v10 Spyder, £125,000+) so I would give some to my girls, some to daddy then get some four-inch heels that I’ll never wear out of the house..and a scarf or rarely see me out of one:)

Now think I’ll follow Abes example of 5 nominations as it’s nearly 12:30 am and I need the loo but once I go upstairs I’m not coming back down so my nominations are;

1.  Because this is my little lady’s blog she has just started and she could do with a few likes/followers..yes shameless mum marketing:)

2.  When I finally get my allotment I’ll be taking notes:)

3. Love her local graffiti pics:)

4. Because some of the cars here are mmmmmmm

5. Like a bit of sewing I does

ok  a few more..I can hold a bit longer..

6.  Local artist, lovely lady:D

7. Now little lady can make sunflowers and I can cut without smearing the colours together!

And my questions;

1. What’s your favourite time of year?

2. What makes you laugh till you can’t breath and wet yourself at the same time?

3. How many of your real friends blog..that you know of?(I only know a few but we’re oldies!)

4. What brings you the most peace?

5. What’s the best cartoon..ever?

6. Your question to me here…….

7. Why do we insist on staying up late on here?

8. Netflix or Lovefilm?

So now I’m off to inform, pee and sleep, in theory, in real life I shall inform, pee then either watch Netflix for 1.2.3 episodes or read for 1.5 hours, I decide as my head hits the pillow:)

Hand Graffiti pics..

More pics from the local tunnel that has been repainted…








This tunnel leads to our local farm, woodlands hence the nature theme:) and  of course the all singing & dancing iPhone camera does not do any justice to the art work;) x

Where to keep my dangly bits?..oh I know…

Take your kids into any woods and 9 times out of 10 you’ll come home with sticks (also known as wands, staffs and swords etc) of various shapes and sizes.well we have a few lying around, waiting to jab you in the foot, popular business!

My brain wave  for the day came whist looking at little ladys sticks and, not for the first time, wondering why the previous tenants had the stretchy cable used to hang up net curtains, screwed into the wall, what would you hang there, mind you they might of felt about the wall paper/colour they way I do and had some fabric/picture covering it, anyway it came in handy today:)IMG_1681 IMG_1679They kind of cheer up the rather revolting blue painted wall paper that has probably been there since 1960+ which I will one day get round to decorating…one day, seen as it’s rented one day might never come!;)


Bet I’ve subconsciously  seen it on pinterest! so not really my own bright idea:/

Praktica MTL5B…


After looking at Pictures I had taken at uni, my Princess bought me the above camera and told me to take up photography again, as she really liked them and thought they were good. She could be biased though, as she was my little muse.

So here are new photos of some of my old photos that are 12years old..they  are in plastic sleeves so have shiny wrinkles..which after realising how old these pics are I should have few of those (non shiny) creeping on my persons soon! :/

These were taken on a Pentax K1000

New kitchen….

I have been where I am for two years now and not decorated anything, when renting it’s one of those are we gonna be here long enough to be bothered to put our stamp on it, thing…well looks like we’re not going anywhere in the near future so I decided that we should at least do the kitchen up, so thought I’d do a post on kitchens that are currently giving me ideas…although I am swinging towards the idea of a kitchen made of pallet wood, I can get them for free, so its just a matter of assembling them, she says!

Now how to put the pics on here!…pinterest.com1763d00b29ccc217cc3986562e7b82ddbpinterest.comtumblr_ly5l611bHr1r126oho1_500tumblr_mbchtnlrQf1rgktkgo1_1280nexus-white-meadows2-e1332050299552d002SQ-silverware-organizer-Dream-a-Little-Bigger2This is exactly what I want on the bottom half of my kitchen ..xIMG_7450-600x400.jpg.pagespeed.ic.Y3BDLBcqbUas my kitchen is just about big enough for the smufs to move about in I decided to keep it white with maybe some splashes of colour….actually Little Lady and I were popping balloons the other day…see earlier post…here is the vid:)  (think you have to click on it to make it work, I had to convert it to a .gif so it’s all jerky:(.)


We could throw the balloons at the wall…oooh and the floor yes then varnish,  yep I see it all in my head, but my head is usually faaar away from reality

now some of the pics have been pilfered from pinterest, a few I have forgotten and others from theses sites;    which is now one of my favourites:)
