I love my new look.....

Aha, I bet you thought I had my hair done or something....
I could do with a make over actually but I am referring to the new blog background that Raspberry cupcakes has so wonderfully created for me, thank you so much it is beautiful.

I had struggled for so long to get something other than the normal templates that blogger give you but alas I was beaten, however hard I tried I just couldn't work it out.
My background was a gift out of the blue and I am not sure where awards originate and I apologise if I have overstepped the mark but I have designed an award just for you C..... I hope you like it.

Help a friend Award
This award is given to someone who gave without being asked and if you pass it on to someone in the future it cannot be given lightly.... they must have given you something wonderful without being prompted, be it a supportive word in an hour of need or a wonderful gift through the post or some technical help that was beyond your ability..... a deed that gives you back some hope that the world is not as bad as the media and press would lead us to believe.

Please pop over to check out Raspberry Cupcake's blog she is a lovely lady with a very kind heart.

Take care
Hope the sun is shinning wherever you may be, I think spring may have sprung here in Somerset (at last)

Hi Alex

Thanks for the comment, I know what you mean about having to get on with it anyway when you aren't well :(

The eggs aren't real but they usually fool people! I'm not sure where they're from but my Mum gave them to me for Easter one year instead of a chocolate egg and they've never been put away since!

Oh your blog looks sooooo pretty. :)

Can't say Denmark was ever on the top of my must visit list but as we try to visit different places everytime we can get away and it would have cost us probably just as much to say in a local hotel we thought why not. :)

Hi Alex. Snap! We like to walk across country to the next village and it's pub, but its more of a summer thing, it's far to boggy around here at the mo. Hope you both enjoy your child free time together, it's so special isn't it?

As for the folksy shop. I can't seem to get enough stuff made to actually open one! I make for a local gift shop as you know and since posting about the bunnies I've had a lady with her own mail order company contact me. She also sells online and is just about to do the Country Living Fair. Well after a little amicable negotiation...she wants to sell my bunnies and wants 6 at a time! But I'm so glad you keep prodding me, maybe I need a lesson in time management! Ha, ha. x

I just love looking at your blog, it's so pretty, and reminds me of yummy candy. (the colors). Just popping in to say hi and glad you come by my page. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hello, me again!
I just read your comment on my blog - and Im excited now! Yes please, I would love a delivery of magazine freebies if you're sure you dont want them? They give away some nice things, especially if you combine them with other things rather than use them all together!
I hope you are ok - you havnt blogged for a while?
