This is about the time of year when I just love to prepare the house for Halloween! (click here to see last year's effort!)

I am sad to tell you my usual decorations will be staying firmly packed this year
We have too much to do in the house to even consider 'Haunting' it like I usually do, and with our ever growing bump we are trying to tie up all the loose ends ASAP!

That said I just couldn't resist this gorgeous bunting from John Lewis

And it was a bargain too!

A Little Treat!

My friend Robyn and I were bored at work (and a but put out that we were working on the weekend!)

We decided that a little sweet treat would make us feel so much better!

The Kitchen Reveal

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that James and I were giving the kitchen a makeover.
I had thought it would be a quick revamp but, as we all know, things always take longer than expected!
We have been so busy I forgot to share the result with you all! Silly me! (if you need a reminder of the 'before' click here)

The entire kitchen was repainted, it really needed freshening up and perfecting the finish of the room took some time!
We painted white on the ceiling, coving and skirting and Laura Ashley Duck Egg on the walls, I love the colour!
We added some retro looking accessories. Metal wall plaques, a new, red clock and finally hung the fabulous shelf I bought from Vintage Amethyst to hang my CK mugs from.
James even put up the new light!!
I am soooo pleased with the result.
All we need is a new blind!

What do you think?

Lots of Love

Show and Tell Sunday....

I can't believe It's October already!! but here we are, another month and another 'Show and Tell Sunday' hosted by the lovely Joe @ Josie Mary.

This months topic is 'one thing I would like to do before I die'
Wow! What a question! There are lots of things I would like to do before I die!

The most important to me is that I want to make sure that everyone I love is happy and knows how much they mean to me, I never want to regret not telling someone I love them enough.
I am so lucky to have met my gorgeous Husband and intend to enjoy every moment with our family.
I know this may seem a small thing but to me it is everything!

But that makes a very short post so I thought I would add a few more wishes!

James and I (and bump) would like to go on a safari to see animals in the wild! (I love giraffes!)

I would like to go back to Las Vegas

Take our baby to visit Micky in Florida

And of course own a pair of these!

(Hey! if I mention them enough surely someone will take note!!)

Cant wait to hear all your wishes!!

Lots of Love
