Thank you Mr Postman

I received two lovely parcels in the post today. The first was from the Becky who writes the lovely Hazel and Blue blog. I won a giveaway on her blog and was lucky enough to receive the most gorgeous little purse

I was going to give it to Izzy but I'm thinking of keeping it for myself! It has a pretty pink lining too

I also got not one but two lovely pieces of ribbon. The second was a little extra surprise that I wasn't expecting. The package also contained a lovely card and some really sweet twine on a cute little wooden peg. Thanks so much Becky. I loved my parcel.

The other parcel was from a moment of madness on ebay when I was seduced into buying some hello kitty fabric. I'm not usually one for fabrics with characters on but Izzy and all of the girls in her class are obsessed with hello kitty so I thought it might be good to make some dap bags to see how they sell.

 and I couldn't resist this pretty pink one too.

Has any seen The Big C?  Its a new series on More 4.

I think that its my new favourite TV programme. Its about a woman who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. I know that it doesn't sound like great fun to watch buts its very funny and very poignant and Laura Linney is fantastic in it. Last nights episode made me laugh out loud and also cry quite a lot too. Its on after Brothers and Sisters (my second favourite programme!). Thursday nights rock.


  1. I saw that last night for the first time and now have it on series record cause I loved it soo much. I'm sure the woman is from Love Actually.
    What a great day for post. I received a bill and someone elses junk! lol

  2. So nice to see someone else call it a dap bag! So many people laugh at me for calling them that!

    I missed that programme, might have to see if I can watch online. It looked really funny on the trailers.

  3. Read Grazia this week - there's a woman who's going through the same thing in real life - that will make you cry again!

  4. I have nominated you for a Stylish Blog Award! Pop over to my blog to claim your award!
