Gosh I really do not know where to start here! First let me say a BIG thankyou to everyone that left a comment about our holivan…we really have been overwhemed by all your support and lovely comments…you really have bolled us all over here at the Happy house!…I am speechless honestly 🙂
THANKYOU THANK YOU THANKYOU
Our little holivan has attracted so much attention – it is phenominal, mind you she is soooo cute, bright and fun!…she is blushing out there, as I am writing this post…see :-
OMG what is all that I can hear you GASP!!…Well you know that we downsized last November, well this is another lot of our lovely enamel, that we thought we would bring into the house!!
Anyway we had a fun time cleaning it all and finding places for it and surprisingly enough, we have fitted all in to our little cottage…we are now ‘bursting at the seams’! and now the house looks even more colourful than it did before! Ill bring you some more piccy’s soon gals 🙂
A lot of things have been happening over these last few weeks…Golly has it been that long! One of which the launch Party for ‘Blogging for Bliss’ was celebrated…book release date 4th August Woo hoo! Seeing as I am featured in it, you would of thought that I would of joined in with the celebrations eh! but no not me!!! I forgot all about it! Doh! Never mind!…. everything went well and even though B4B is not due out here in Blighty until October 5th – my lovely page mate, Monica from Happy Zombie(Monica is on page 42 and I am on 43) sent me a copy of my page, so I am soooo grateful to her 🙂 Do pop over to hers….I love her to bits, Thanks Monica xx
Also this week I have to thank Jenny from ‘Everyday is a Holiday’ blog….Gosh I love her to bits too…well apparently her new ‘Kitchenology’ range of pictures, has been inspired by me and Rosie and our decorating style…isnt she so sweet 🙂 and look at the lovely print above! I also love the way it incorporates, plenty of tea and coffee and cake and more cake – she must know that I have a totally sweet tooth 🙂 Thank you Jenny xx
We also had a day out to Herne Bay in the week….I needed to get some exercise (as my belly is now much larger than my BOOBS!!! Eek not a good look!!!) and thought a lovely walk along the promenade would do the trick! Herne bay is about 45 minutes away from us and it is a lovely little town….its full of lovely quaint english fish and chip shops, cafe’s and of course BINGO and the AMUSEMENTS! Oh how we love all of those things…we take all our change with us….and love trying to win silly prizes on the 2p machines like the one above and below!
When I asked the lady behind the counter of these lovely flying saucers, (Yum Yum! and very Low in fat!) if I could take a piccy….she said ‘Why’!…..I thought why not!…..The colours and memories of those flying saucers were enough for me!…I decided she was NOT from my clan! LOL! and quickly took the shot anyway, mumbling something ’bout loving them as a kid! he he he!
We ate chips on the Pier, (not very good for the belly situ!) we had an icecream on the Promenade (ditto about the belly situ!) and a lovely cuppa in the car from the flask that we had taken with us! (I don’t take sugar!…perfect for cutting down!…a bit like having a full english! from the ‘Greasy Spoon Cafe’ and a diet coke! LOL!) and watched the world go by!…
Now you cannot leave the seaside without a lovely cuppa from the flask in the car! LOL!…whether its time spent getting the sand out from between your toes or your childrens toes…its just gotta be done!
This is the lovely Rosie with her cup full of winnings!…we even managed to fit in a game of Air Hockey…where I let rosie win! 😉 – Actually we laughed so much playing that game, we attracted a bit of an audience!, mainly toddlers though…well it is the school holidays!
…Oh and please do wish Rosie luck tomorrow gals…as last week she had an interview to work in a fashion boutique in town and today she found out that she has got the job! We couldn’t believe it as this was her first interview!…I am soooo proud of her 🙂 She will be starting at 9.00 am tomorrow and needless to say she is very excited….Its about time she bagged herself a job, as the list is endless of what she is going to buy with her earnings!
…Oh being young eh!.
I had better go now gals…I’ll be back soon, have a nice few days.
