A Weekend of muchness :)

Thankyou ladies for all the comments about my last post - reading back I do sound grumpy don't I - oops!

Amazing what a trip to the hairdressers can do for a persons wellbeing - a cut & a colour later and I felt much more like a normal Vicki (whatever normal is ;) ).

Yesterday I went to see my Mum and take her card & pressies - as there are so many of us we tend to break our Mothers Days visits up as otherwise it gets rather overwelming!!  Mum loved her card & pressies :) and no sooner had she opened those when another sister arrived along with my little niece & nephew.

They had a great time exploring the cupboard where the toys are kept - I hadn't realised what a collection of vintage toys were still at my parents - Fisher Price & original fuzzy felts - was great to see them played with by a young ones more used to Nintendo and modern plastic stuff.

Whilst I was out MrVV & little son built my dolls house :) ;

Just needs the paintwork touching up, then decorating & furnishing - think this is very much a long term project.

Today as we all know was Mothering Sunday - and true to their word I've had a day off :)  Meaning the menfolk have cooked, washed up and looked after me.  Big son was given the job of pudding (Apple Crumble) for tonights dinner - how he managed to break my peeler I'll never know - have nicknamed him Hulk for the moment ;).  MrVV took the boys out yesterday so they could buy cards & pressies;
Lastly with all my spare time today, I've just about finished my colour swap things (MadMum I shall email you this week) and have also made something as part of a giveaway (more on that another day).

See you later in the week - I must get myself organised with my photo taking - have things I want to show you :)

xxxx Vicki xxxx

Just had a glum weekend & went to cheer myself up with a hair cut - um, the shopping centre had to be evacuated for a fire alarm just as i sat down for fabulousness to adorn my head!! Still need a hair cut but giggling again. Love Posie

So glad you had a good Sunday. It's a special day (in France it's in May) and it must have been lovely to share it with your mum too.

Now - I remember talking about Easter chocolates. Would you like me to send something especially French across for you and the boys?

Your post has reminded me to bring home the gorgeous dolls house that's currently sitting in my mum's attic. It's a duck egg blue Victorian town house complete with fully decorated interior and electrics. I was obsessed with antique dolls houses when I was about 15 and spent hours restoring it. I can't wait to pass it on to my children. Thanks for the nudge! :)
