Lula, Marcus and Giveaway winner :)

Good evening

Hope those with children are enjoying the half-term hols. The boys have been busy with friends/revision/screen stuff - the only signs sometimes they are here are the occasional bleep and of course the fast emptying fridge & cake tins!!

We had a visitor this afternoon - my baby sisters puppy - a cocker spaniel / poodle cross, a cockerpoo - she's called Lula and is about 12 weeks old now - utterly adorable;

She was completely smitten with Little Son and him with her. They happily raced about outside till Lula was just shattered - she came in and promptly dozed off on my feet!!

The other night MrVV & I had a night out together - we went to see Mumford & Sons in concert and they were fantastic - a brilliant night out :)

 As well as playing loads from their last album and their forthcoming album - they also played completely unplugged as it was such small theatre - just 750 seats. This was a real treat for us fans and for the group themselves;

Rightly - lastly the important bit - the winner of my 400 posts/followers giveaway (after having their name pulled from the bowl) is;

Fee @ Chipper Nelly

Fee - I will email you in a while :)

Thank you to everyone who took part xxx

Right - its Thursday night - time for a good wander around blogland - I've not had much chance for that this week - its been rather busy!

See you soon

Oh what a cutie your sister's little pooch is. We have been talking about a family dog. My other half is mad about Beagles. And they are gorgeous dogs but very active and very clever. I have had first had experience of them. Lovely though. I think if my girls saw Lula it would definately be love. She is so sweet!

Oooo I am so jealous! Love Mumford and Sons. How Lucky were you. Glad you had a great time though!

Oh my your sister's dog is just so cute! And I love her name too.
Glad you enjoyed your evening out, should I admit that I'm not even sure what they sing?!

I too, am envious of you getting to see Mumford and Sons. Me and my five year old daughter love them, i would love to take her to see them, but they are only playing one date in Ireland this summer - tomorrow, and i can't go! :(
Loving the new header for your blog, see it features some real important things, caravan,UJ's fab homemade crochet, Mumford. I can't remember what the old one was now, but this one looks more....edgy? I really like it. I'd love to know how you even get six pics in? I'm not happy with my header.
