My third BLOG of the Year! Just a quick post to show off my very clever cousin's advert for my Folksy shop.

Check out my clever cousin's magazine ad - she made it for my Folksy site

I am really really pleased with it - she's so clever.  Any comments would be appreciated as she recently graduated as a Graphic Designer. Her name is Natalie Jade Smith and her website is if anyone wants to take a look.

4th December 2010 = My second blog!

Ok, so my BLOG so far didn't quite work out as I'd hoped. I wanted to try and blog every day so that my second blog was on the 2nd December, and 3rd on the 3rd December etc etc. Simply haven't had chance what with the snow and one thing and another.

Anyway....... Here is my second blog of the week, month, year and lifetime!

Today has been fun so far. We walked to the local Supermarket which is about 0.7 mile away, the snow was deep and I was to be honest worried about the trek home as once loaded with shopping I wondered how on earth I would save myself if I fell in the slippery ice and snow. My partner thought we'd be fine but even the woman on the checkout queried how on earth we'd get home with all this shopping. I did tell him all the way round the supermarket as I am sure you can all imagine.

Anyway, we hiked out of the supermarket car park and I thought how difficult the journey home was going to be. I was negotiating obstacles in the snow such as footpaths and roads very cautiously and with little balance. But luckily and I mean luckily we were stopped by some neighbours in a 4x4 and they gave us a ride home. I cannot believe our luck!! Of all the days we have walked to the supermarket we have never seen anyone to be offered a lift home. I was so pleased and I think secretly my partner was very pleased because I am sure even he realised we had bought way too much.......!

This afternoon, so far, we not done much more but made two sets of stew! I LOVE STEW! In fact it is bubbling away in the oven now and the whole house smells of it. Just the Yorkshire pudding to make now. I've listed a Christmas Elf for my shop

For anyone that doesnt know there is a thing on Folksy whereby you list a new item every day and today I have listed a necklace. To see, more photos of the necklace please go to Any feedback would be great!

Right I hope this is OK for my second BLOG! Over and Out! Have a nice weekend everyone and thanks for reading my second BLOG of 2010!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here it is.... 1st December 2010 = My 1st BLOG!

Well here it is.... my first EVER BLOG!

My boyfriend,  I should say, now Fiance - that is still taken some getting used to (memory wise) and we've been engaged for almost two years! has been suggesting I BLOG for years. He's into IT, well more than IT - Software Engineering to be precise and accurate ;) but I am simply not into IT. I enjoy IT but I am no computer whizz which quite frankly frustrates me a little. 

I will try to write about my life, my new FOLKSY shop and more excitingly our forthcoming wedding!!

Anyway just a very short post for now.... I really hope this is OK for a first post as I do not have a clue what I am doing!? As you can probably see from the quality of this first BLOG - I promise to get better over the next few months.
