Back to Blogging

Although I have somewhat been away, I have still been around checking all your wonderful blogs out.
I have missed my blogging, and although things are still not good, I feel I need to get back to blogging.
So I thought I would tell you about my bank holiday weekend so far & show you my wonderful giveaway gift from Little Gem which I am long overdue in doing.
Yesterday Gav & I popped into town, both with slightly fuzzy heads due to my sister coming to stay on Friday night!!!
We made a be line for our favourite shop, TKMAX.
Here are my buys.

Some fabby Converse All Stars covered in Raspberry's, Gav said they could be CK as the print is soo pretty. There not but they do hold her style well.

I also had to have the thermos flask with the roses on, and what a bargain at £3.99!!!
I worked at the CS in the afternoon, re dressed the window with a kitchenalia theme, sorry no pictures.
Today has rained, and rained and rained..... which has meant no fun in the garden for me, but the veggies & plants are loving it. The peas, carrots & beetroot are all starting to poke through the ground.
My loan Tulip did look pretty though, covered in little droplets of rain.

The rain did give me an excuse to though to sit in my sewing room, making lovelies for my "Good enough to Eat" Swap partner Lisa @ Vintage Girl. I even sang along to the top 40, as best I could, lol.
I have been a rubbish blogger and have not thanked Gemma of Little Gems World for the wonderful giveaway parcel I received in the post well lets say at least a couple of weeks ago!!
I won her giveaway in a bag & here is what arived.

Thank you Little Gem I love it, the hair clips match my new shoes above perfectly and the hexagon broach will be adorning my bag shortly & I think it's crafty contentse will come in very handy with all the swaps I have entered lately.
So lets hope the sun shines tomorrow as Gav bought a new BBQ on Friday which he is desperate to try out!!
Have a lovely bank holiday Monday.

I guess the BBQ stayed in it's box, then? Not really a BBQ weekend here anyway.

Hello. I saw this and it made me laugh. I went to tkmax few days ago ,and converse( the same as yours ) and the flask got my full attention. But unfortunately converse-i have quit a bit of them so, I drag me away , and stoped at the flask Oh dear me I could not say NO But it was damaged : ( and they did not had the same ones any more. But i won't stop till i get one : ). Love your blog. Keep up the good work : )
