Rock a bye Roddy...

I have had a fab bank holiday weekend spending time with my Mum and Nan and we have done a whole lot of bargain hunting from charity shops, car boot sales and antique stores.

We have started getting things for my vintage/rockabilly style wedding next year... exciting stuff... but also managed to pick up a few bargains to enjoy now!

 Rocking chair £3
 Roddy loves it... it took him a minute to get used to the rocking motion when he jumped up!
Kidney shape side table.... this was on our friends parents stall and they gave it to me for free... but I felt bad and so gave them a £1 - how generous of me, lol!

My nan bought me the peacock vase.

Hope you have all had a lovely bank holiday if you're here in the UK and if not hope you had fab weekends all round!

Itsy, Bitsy....

Teenie weenie.... Hens!!

Friday the 13th was a very unlucky day. One of our little bantam hens did not come home and our neighbour found her dead in her garden... its only a hen but we were rather heartbroken! :(

We were very worried about the little one left getting bullied by the big ones, so on Sunday my lovely beau took me to choose another bantam to keep her company.

We were only getting one...

Then we spotted a lovely little trio... 2 hens and a cockerel. We were offered the hens and the cock would have gone to the pot... well, we couldn't do it! So we took the little trio and set off to find another hen house as you can't have two men living together, Typical, huh!! ;P


Clint, Itsy and Bitsy;


 And here's Clint. The cockerels always fight to work out who is boss and one must back down and walk away. Despite being about a third of the size of Elvis, Clint had a good ol' go... But Elvis is still the King!!

No chickens were harmed during this photography... well there was some blood but they are both fine now!!

Hope you didn't suffer any ill luck on the 13th!!

Ta ta for now xx

A sorry, some sardines and some toast...

I am sorry I haven't been around much lately, I have been a bit overwhelmed with everything in life and have been very much focusing on plodding on through.

Good news is I have sorted out some stressful elements of life  and am focusing on enjoying the summer.

So after enjoying some sardines on toast I thought it was about time I did a little blogging... I have missed you blogosphere!

I have been very busy planting up the garden and the allotment....

Goodies nearly ready to plant out...
Here's the fabric of the dress i am currently making. Its nearly finished so you will get to see the completed projected shortly!

I hope your all well and I look forward to lots more posts and to catch up on all my favourite blogs out there!

Ta ta for now!
