I salute you, love. Well and truly.
What a day. What a week. Where do I begin? Do I begin by telling you about the shite afternoon I've had? Where the car failed its MOT and needed over £400 spent on it just to get through....or shall I tell you about our outside pipe which was gushing water into the drive, road and neighbour's driveway? Neighbour knocked to inform me as I wrestled to get two naked children out of the bath. The Prince decided to use this opportunity to do a horse-style wee all over the carpet in his room. You know, the lengthy ones. So much scrubbing was required while the kids whined for their Cheerios (what am I, a fricking restaurant? I've had demands all day for food.) Or shall I tell you about how my day started at 5am (having crawled into bed at midnight) when the Prince marched in and announced: "Mum, mine hot wickabick please. My hungry".
No I won't tell you about any of those frustrating moments (oh....)
I shall tell you about my hot date with the lovely Sarah at Annaboo's House instead. We met at my lovely neighbour's house (those who didn't read my last few blog posts may not know that my neighbour just happens to be best friends with Sarah...small world).
We all had a great time, mopping up spilt tea (me again, it really has been a disastrous day AND I stabbed my eye with my mascara wand minutes before meeting Sarah) and talking about many things, including the wonderful world of blogging.
Here we are, sort of Friends Reunited. And we're going to get together again. Hoorah! She's lovely (aren't you, dear?!)
Talking of bloggy friends, I've had two surprises this week. One from Helen at sweetpeaandsailor.blogspot.com and one from Julie at atalefromtoadstoolhouse.blogspot.com and I was thrilled and very grateful.
Helen sent me the below earrings, after reading my blog about a cherry tree bracelet I'd found a while back, as she had the earrings to match and didn't wear them.
I now have a full set of seagull/seaside jewels!

And my bloggy friend Julie sent me a lovely handmade card and these gorgeous house warming gifts. I am in love with them! They go so well in our home, and yes it's only a rented home, but while we live here, it's our home and I love it.
|How cute is this card?!|
|This lives in the dining room now. Gorgeous!|
|And this chose to pose in the kitchen|
|Julie also sent me the Blanket of Glory just before Christmas|
(check out those teething cheeks)
Onto cherry tree shop items. I bought these two coats for the Princess this week. £3 each. The polka dot spring jacket (sorry, I've washed it but I don't do ironing, life is too short) is so cute although it looks wide in the photo. The Princess is chuffed with both.

|Whilst it looks wide enough to fit Pat Butcher, |
it fits my slender Princess beautifully
