I'm 14 and in love again!

Hey Bloggers...just had to share this..I'm sat blubbing watching Beauty and the Beast again...Oh Vincent!! I watched this TV series back in 1988 religiously.

I didn't realise it would have such an effect on me!!

Gotta go......

Oh my gosh the music makes me well up!!

Yummy Friday nights..

Theres just something special about Friday evenings when you have been at work all week. My days are quite long now, we live an hours drive away from our jobs (Our choice, we wanted to be in the countryside near our chums!), so leave at 7am most days..and are back in the evenings at 7pm..Its starting to get a bit lighter for us driving, for ages we were going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark.
I must admit that I do find it quite relaxing sometimes, I can snooze anywhere, plus I love a good audio book, generally spooky things, but at the moment I'm listening to Rebecca read by the late Anna Massey, and its brilliant!

So I'm thinking of having a good mooch about the internet (I have just finished all the housework...where does all the dust come from?) and I'll fit in an old movie I'm sure today, my PJ's will probably stay on till we go out for a walk later, then off for supper at our friends.

I did have a little itch to maybe start sewing a new bear, I haven't done any sewing for ages...I had a little flurry of orders a year or so ago...but that was the last, they are expensive to make, and not the cheapest of items to sell...and these days with everyones purse strings tightening...teddy bears might not be at the top of everyones list!

Ooo I'm sure I mentioned that I really want a record player...well I'm gonna get one prob in a weeks time..waiting for payday! I've already bought a couple of old 80s records I had..and a few tape cassettes...why did I ever get rid of them?

I really am a child of the 70s and 80's... :0)
Hope you have some fun this weekend where ever you are!

Hi Bloggers ...hows you today?

Well I'm mainly sitting down now, after all the boring house work is done, and my slow cooker is full up with a stew..

I like to sit in my kitchen with a movie, or spooky film on..whilst I'm chopping veg.. The husband is busy working on a children's book so I'm amusing myself.

Oh my....

Sorry...right...must stop staring at lovely Jean Dujardin...

Oh I want a record player...

and I have no records...I used to, many singles. But I suddenly thought how nice it would be to collect old vinyl...

I found this lovely one on plays cd's and has a radio...

and this one that doesn't play cds..but you can plug a USB cable in..does that mean you can play an ipod in it too?

I'm really not meant for the modern world at all.....

Right I'm off for a hunt on the internet xx

Hey Bloggers..

Hows you today? Here in the UK its blooming cold...I got in my car this morning and it was blooming freezing!! Sorry I haven't been blogging for a couple of weeks....I really haven't done much of anything weekend last week consisted of me having a heavy cold and watching old carry on movies!
I kept meaning to show you this painting I received from my husband for Christmas. You must realize who it is!! Mr M painted Margaret Hamilton for me on a large canvas..he is a very talented artist..and can  paint and draw effortlessly! He has had to come to my aid a few times I can tell you!! Anyway The Wicked Witch now lives in my downstairs toilet....which isn't because I wanted to hide her away, but because this was the best spot for her. You see my downstairs Wizard of Oz if you are ever caught short in Wiltshire, and need to spend a'll find a real witches broom, spell books and photos from the film..I mean small cloakrooms can be a bit dull can't they?
I will be back again soon..!
Happy Friday!
Love Sam xx
