A little bit of feel good.......

Ok....I know I've been a little bit lazy on the blogging front lately, with my own, and everybody elses.

I blame it on bloglines, I haven't worked out how to comment on the new posts unless I click through to the actual blog.
I tend to think, just a quick read, then I'll pop back later and leave a comment (like taking a sneaky spoonful of the dinner, before it's actually served) but mostly that never happens.
I'm a bit crap at text messages and emails too, I do the same thing, read it, and then think, I answer back in a minute, but that minute passes, and turns into and an hour, day, or even week....
Is anyone else afflicted by this disorder, or is it just me?

So sorry everyone, for being a crap blogger.... I promise I will be posting something with lots of photos, some news maybe, and just a bit of general waffle if you can bear anymore!

But in the meantime just one more lazy post please...!!!!!!

I am currently grooving to this by Jamie Lidell, who my sister introduced me to on youtube last weekend. Who'd of thought that this voice could come out of this man?

cheek to cheek

On my kitchen window sill I have some very cute miniature 'tete a tete' narcissus, so called because they have two or three flowers per stem that like this...

and so whenever I'm washing up at the sink and gazing out of the window, watching them bobbing about in the breeze (or gale force wind this week!) I can't help humming this song to myself.....

Nice Jugs!

I don't know about you, but I can't resist a nice jug. As Dorcas says in Larkrise to Candleford, "they are my one weakness".
After finding a lovely glass jug (perfect for Pimms!) for £2 in the charity shop the other day, I decided to gather up my ever increasing collection to see how much I already had. (they are deceptively dotted around the house in various locations in the hope that Danny won't notice any new additions, and instigate a jug ban!)

As you can see, there seems to be a blue theme.

Then the next day, at my first car boot sale of the year, this beauty caught my eye. I clocked it as soon as I arrived, but since I had recently discoverd how many jugs I actually had, I managed to refrain myself. Only when we had finished going round, and mum and I where making our way back to the car did I give in, and for the grand total of £1, I'm so glad I bought it love it more each day, it's lovely colour and the bow is so pretty!

So in the spirit of 'Jug Love' I'm having a giveaway, in which you can win this pretty little miniature one (below), along with a few other little surprises I can lay my hands on. All you need to do is leave a comment by next sunday (9th) and the winner will picked at random and announced on the monday.

P.S. I hope you all had a lovely Mother's day! I did, I got a homemade card from Ella, and we went to Mum and Dad's for sunday lunch where we had Jamie's slow cooked lamb, and a Victoria sponge sandwiched with rasberry jam, fresh rasberries, and double cream made by me and inspired by the one Kelly made for her hubby's birthday.
