I Know, I Know, Im late but do have a good reason one very cute little baby girl pulled a few of my laptop keyboard keys off and i've had to have it fixed lol.
I would like to say that both steph and linda will receive a gift for taking part in my "tell me why" lol thank you ladies i loved what you both wrote!

Linda: One of the many reasons I love my children(even though they are going through the teen years! LOL) is because of what they have taught me! They have taught me unconditional love! They have taught me the power of words! They have taught me the power of actions! They have taught me it is okay to be ME! They have taught me how far my patience can go! They have taught me to laugh till I cried or wet my pants! They have taught me to K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid!). They have taught me too see the world through their eyes! THey have taught me what it really means to be happy! They have taught me that it's okay I am crazy! They have taught me to live! They have taught me... More than I could ever thank them for!!Thank you... I needed that reminder! :).

Steph:Because my Mom is selfless and there's no other love like hers. My Dad because he's such a free spirit and is what every man should strive to become. My sisters because they are my very Best friends. My In-laws because I could not have married into a better family. My Husband because we have nothing in common, are complete opposites, but love each other like we are the only two in the planet. As you see, I am very blessed.

So if you could both send me your snail mail addresses that would be great! :D Email is

On to other pretty little things, these are just some of the treasures i bought at the fair in london, even though it wasn't what i epected it was still fun and i loved spending the time with nan!

This is Woodland Enchantress from The Gold Collection it was origanally £40 buti got this one for £29.99 which isn't too bad plus it meant that i could get another one!
This one is Ambiance Chinoise from Royal Paris, I got this for £20 and i really love this one!!

Happy Halloween

Hi guys, Happy Halloween to you all :D

Little miss had a very fun day dressed as a kitty all day. then her grandad and auntie took her trick or treating for hour while mummy handed out sweeties to other little 'monsters'. I love Halloween just because you have an excuse to dress your little humans up all cute or scary for the fun of it.

I have no doubt that this wont be the one and olny time my daughter wears this dress as she had fun pretending to be a cat and wiggle her tail all day.

Hope you all had fun too

Till next time

Is Having To Much Spoiling My Childs Chance Of A Happy Future?

So tonight i have been completely awakened to a very real possibility, that i am unintentionally ruining my daughters chances of ever just being simply happy. No I'm not just beating myself up needlessly, i read a blog post tonight that made me take a good hard look at what I'm teaching my two year old without even realising it!

My daughter is two and already she has a bedroom full of toys, half of which i could throw away and she would never even notice and with Christmas coming up its bound to get worse! At home i very rarely see her play with one toy for more than 5 minutes before she's running of in search of something else and when i read this post by chance tonight, it made me wonder if she would take this habit and carry it with her for the rest of her life. Would she buy herself something nice only to want more because the first item is not enough?. Am i setting her up for a life of credit payments and living paycheck to paycheck?

I have seen this habit myself in m…

Tutu Expensive!

OK my first post on the matter of saving money when you have a two year old that likes to shop (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!), Is about tutu's. Me and my daughter are taking a holiday in a few weeks with her grandparents to Devon and every year the site has a fancy dress competition. Now naturally I want my daughter to look the part so I ordered her a hand made tutu in the style of Cinderella, It drop kicked by bank balance by £38.50! now don't get me wrong its lush and I love it, but it got me wondering if I could do it myself. They would be perfect for Christmas presents for all her little friends and no doubt little miss is going to want a lot of dress up stuff too! So I looked to see if I could get the stuff and do it myself, and guess what? Of course I could! This tutu cost me £6.60 to make and I have enough fabric left over to do another!  Its made with Two 6inx 25yrd rolls of tulle one pink one purple and a waffle crochet top from china, found on eb…
