Where have I been lately

Oh the drama!!!
I have disappeared off the planet of late, but I am now back to say HI!!!
I have missed everyone...
So...on to the excuse, or should I say excuses, he he he!!

This charming little man was the original cause of my sudden disappearance from blogging.
We got him an ipod for xmas and since he has had it we have gotten alert emails to let us know we are rapidly reaching our monthly downloads, but last month he used our entire months worth of Internet in a mere 2 weeks, sooo the whole family had to miss out on any Internet usage for the rest of the month.
He no longer has Internet access on his ipod.
has anyone else faced this issue after investing in ipods for the kids?

This precious little fairy turned 5 & had a fabulous rainbow themed birthday party, because she luuurves rainbows

A very tasty rainbow layer cake did the trick

and of course her favourite treat jelly, set layer by layer!!

We had a great picnic & a spot of fishing & swimming at the beach on the weekend. I also learnt to drive on the beach which was a blast. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend you do!!
Unfortunately my car is experiencing a few issues at the moment.
A man blacked out at the wheel of his car and ran into the back of mine, thankfully the kids & I weren't hurt but my car is undriveable.I will now be driving a hire car for any where up to 6 weeks, this doesn't please me at all...Grrrrrr!!!!

So any way thats it for me, I am back & looking forward to catching up on some bloggy action!!

Bold bathing

I'm not usually one to be drawn to bold colour schemes, but when a lovely rich colour is partnered with a nice  crisp, clean, white...

Well, whats not to love!!!

The bathroom would have to be the perfect room to achieve such a stunning finish.

I am seriously in love with that gorgeous vanity in this second image.

What do you think?
