I got it!!

Check it out...the cutest little desk!
I just had to have it!! Its so cute and well made!...It fits in a cute nook in my kitchen, and all my bits and bobs fit in nicely.
wowzers its hot today, I just had to rush out to fill the car up with fuel, apparently there is going to be a strike here in the UK any time now, as seeing as my commute is a 2 hr drive every day, thought it best to stock up :0)
Image care of google search and Dancing with the Stars
I have also been trying to watch the american 'Strictly come Dancing' Melissa Gilbert is competing this time, and she is a favorite lady of mine. I grew up watching her in Little House on the Prairie, and she looks amazing at the age of 47. I'm 9 years younger and just hope to look as well as she does..(Even a little finger!) when I'm that age.

Ooo look at her here..shes so cute!! I have just ordered her Biography, by all accounts she talks about everything so I'm looking forward to that.
My garden is coming to life too. Thanks to husband, who has literally become Alan Titchmarsh overnight..hes worked really hard on the garden, plus he's more or less working 7 days a week at the thanks Mr M xx
I have also taken up a new healthly food and exercise routine..its been 2 weeks and I have been doing an hours exercise a night..its really good, and did kill my legs to start with, plus I have a little friend to keep me company..

Desk Obsession..

Well I blame watching Miss remember the old black and white versions with Margaret Rutherford?  I absolutely love her cottage (I know its a set on the inside) but some films sets are nicer than the real thing!
Now I have got it into my head that somehow I want a little writing desk in my living room..not that I write much or anything..but you know just incase!
Then whilst perusing ebay I came across these cute little sloping desks..they were all the rage some years ago..Oh I do love a bit of vintage stationary! I do have a really lovely old writing bureau..but its kinda being used already in my kitchen with my TV on it...(I know not really using it for what it was for, but it works really well....)
Ooo just what to do dear bloggers????

PS and...I have got a real thing about old books too...
Isn't this a lovely room? (Image care of google..thankyou!)

Back again..

Hey bloggers...hows u today? Sorry for the lack of posts..I have to admit that I am struggling a bit about what to waffle on about..I think I'm having a bit of a blogging blip..When I first starting blogging..4 or 5 years ago I was blown away with these new websites that I had come across..Yves Town..Posy...Tales from Pixie Wood (Which is now an ooober blog) and I wanted a bit of it. If I hadn't discovered blogging, I wouldn't have learnt to crochet a bit, and to make bears either..but at the moment I'm in a bit of a creative slump.....I think that I threw myself into all this creativity that I have run out of gas at the mo!
Anyway, I'm trying to dig myself out of my hole at the I will keep you I'm now a Downton Abbey Addict..and I can't wait for the Titantic TV series to hit ITV in the next week or so..keep you eyes peeled for it I think its gonna be good!!
Happy weekend!!
