In the process of finishing all those half finished projects that I seem to have everywhere! (I'm a serial non-finisher)


This is Hans, he is an amigurumi bear and he's all wonky and mis-shapen but I'm quite proud of him! Definately not child safe, I'm expecting his limbs to fall off shortly.

Decluttering.  Oh such slow progress huh?  It's like the more I declutter the more stuff amasses.  I am such a hoarder it's untrue.  I've had unopened Christmas crackers since two Christmases ago, it's ridiculous!

We went for a little picnic the other day, to Baggeridge Country Park.  It's a massive wooded park with loads of trails, but not so good for a pushchair even though there are "accessible" routes!


Getting ready to go, Katie was so tired already!


Tom is amazing with a camera, I keep telling him to take up photography but he doesn't think he's any good!



A fun day had by all.  We'll be returning and hopefully the heavens won't open on us again!

Things I love Thursday

The Mamas and Papas Sola in Truffle which I'll be ordering soon for the lil lady!

And a few others: Japanese sweets, trips to Birmingham, the idea that Christmas is around the corner, feeling snug on a cold day, Burger King (haha)

We got our wedding photos back today.  We've been married for 5 weeks now :)

I've started a sort of challenge where I have to make a bit of jewellery each week!  Here's week one!

So I guess I promised some more action on this blog right?  Sorry guys!  Here's Monday's post!
We went off on our travels to Stourport.  Can you believe there isn't even a McDonalds there?  It's kinda pretty down there but the weather was a bit on and off (England right?)


Some beautiful views to be had, alas not pushchair friendly so we didn't get very far!  Check this out though.   If you know me at all you'd know this view is just awe inspiring.  If you don't then you ought to know I'm a massive fan of Silent Hill, and this is a recurring setting.


And then look what I found in the arcade!


It was awesomeness, I've heard that these are Japan only!  Of course I gave it a go and was killed off by some ample busted nurse.

I'm completely addicted to those coin pusher machines that you always see and of course there were some there.  I've never managed to actually win anything on those things (aside from more 2p's) but I got some stuff!  A lollypop, a keyring and an annoying frog charm.  All sucky but still, I won something!!!
