Last blog from me for the year

Hi Everyone,

Well I can't say that I am a prolific blogger but I will be taking a break from blogland until after Xmas. Hopefully I will be fully revitalised after our holiday at the beach. Fingers crossed anyway!

I survived my week in Millmerrin last week. It was really really really hot and I did really long days. I was so glad to be home again. I am glad to say Ella survived quite nicely without me and her father was really glad to see me back again. I think he had forgotten how much needed to be done for a little one. Ha ha I say!!! I can't believe (well I can really as I am quite forgetful at times) that I forgot my camera, so no pics of my trip. I did take some with my phone  but as I am technically challenged, I haven't worked out how to get them off yet wiht the Bluetooth. I will keep on trying.

On the weekend my beautiful little girl turned into feral girl and threw some of the most impressive temper tantrums I have seen. Very impressive. 

I am trying to spring clean the house and keep on top of the washing. I am determined that I will arrive back from holidays to a pristine (ha ha ha, like that will ever happen) house. Today is scrubbing the bathroom from top to bottom and washing, tomorrow is dusting and vacuuming and putting away the washing. Friday is Xmas lunch with my boss and Ella's daycare Xmas party. Saturday is cleaning out the fridge, washing and packing. Sunday is finish off the packing and Monday is YIPEEEEE going away day.

So I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and I will be catching up with all the blogland news when I get back in 3 weeks time. Aso, I know I was supposed to have a giveaway this week but I has just not been organised enough to get it happening so I think I will think about it while I am on holiday and start the new your off with a giveaway. Top idea I reckon.

Anyway, enough of my rambling. Keep safe and well over the holiday.

Love from

Testing Gemma Joy's blog lesson - yay it works!

I was just reading Gemma Joy's tip for putting pics in your blog quickly and easily so I thought I would give it a try. Yay it works. Thanks so much for the tip Gemma.

Here is my demonstration that it worked for me. I don't know whose pic this is but I really liked it - I have a thing about hearts at the moment.

Talks to you soon - I will be having a pre-christmas giveaway - just as soon as I get back to civilisation!!!

Something exciting

I am soooo excited. Yesterday I delivered the first batch of my stitchery patterns, kits and deluxe kits to the Handmade Heaven. So I have officially launched my little business, Sunny Street Designs. I am excited, but also very scared as well. I really hope I get at least 1 sale, LOL.  I won't be listing my products anywhere until after Christmas as I have just run out of time. So next year, Etsy here I come! 

I will be running a give away next week but I need to think about what will be in it......mmmmmm I have some ideas........

I am off to Millmerrin (think that is how you spell it) for work next week. So it will be the first time away from my little girl and I am seriously stressed. Aggghhhh. I am just focusing on the weekend after and my Christmas holidays.

See ya later
