Poorly Me!!

Kevin was off work last week with the lurgy and being the kind husband that he is, he thought he would share it with me, so i've had it over the weekend.
Yesterday i had the day off work and sat infront of this all day

With my puddy cat for company..

I actually read a whole book in a day, it was this one which has been sitting on my bookshelves forever..
It was really good, but quite horrible at the same time..

Book Heaven!!

Most people who know me know that i am a complete Book Addict
& at the moment i am actually in Book Heaven, i have found a great website for swapping books
www.readitswapit.co.uk and am wondering how i never knew about it before!!
I have so many books at the moment that i am actually organising my very own Book Swap night, where people can come with all there old books and leave with some new ones to read!!
I can't wait for it, as i think it's a great way of getting together with a group of friends, and maybe trying a different type of book than i would usually go for on the bookshelves.

It's not till just over a week away so will let you know how it goes!!

My First Brooche!!!

It's been so long scince i even looked at my crafting supplies they have been shoved in a forgotton corner of the office for nearly a year now...
But i've been wanting to make some felt brooches for ages and this morning i actually sat down and had a try at it.
This is my first attempt, took me quite a while, but then i was ablrt to watch BBCiplayer at the same time ..
Might wear it to work this afternoon, see if i get any comments!!

The Great Escape!

I've just got time to show you some pics of our cottage in Little Langdales before i go to work for the day.. It was a fantasic cottage complete with lots of little cottagy touches, woodburner and a village pub 2 minutes walk away!
Here's the front door...

The pic below is taken on one of our walks around the valley, our cottage is in the row of 3 white ones, ours being the one on the right and if youlook really close you can see Kev's van parked a little way to the left of it. The road was very narrow so not much fun getting a VW Crafter down there!
This pic below was our bedroom which had fab views of the valley

& this was the single bedroom upstairs, there was another double room off the kitchen where Rachel & Simon slept & The bathroom was downstairs.

So that's the cottage, appropriately named The Great Escape!
I have lots more photos to bore you with of our walks but have to go earn some pennies now so willpost them another day..

Vw Heaven..

Here we are back from a fantastic week in the Lake District. Pictures to come of our fab cottage in the Little Langdale Valley, the few times we ventured out in the car (which wasnt many as we walked the hills most days) i saw a few VW Camper Vans and got to thinking what a fab way to spend the week exploring.
Then i stumbled upon this fab website where you can hire a campervan (at quite an expense... but hey how cool are these!!)

See them for yourselves at www.retrobays.co.uk
