I received my copy of Selina’s brand new book a couple of weeks ago and was completely overwhelmed to find so many pics of my house in it. I’ve taken photos of the pages and I’m not going to write anything with them because that would make me feel silly, like when an estate agent shows you round a house saying “this is the kitchen, this is the lounge” and you just want to ask him to please go away so you can look round in peace. The photographer is Catherine Gratwicke and the words are by Joanna Simmons.
The lovely embroidered hoop is by Vicky Trainor
Thank you SO much Selina Lake, Catherine Gratwicke, Joanna Simmons and publishers http://www.rylandpeters.com
Poor mummy chick forgot to change the clocks forward and she overslept so she’s an hour behind and no time to do her hair.
My kids think I’ve totally lost the plot ! Do I care ? No I don’t 🙂
In fact one of my boys is sitting in the front room with his football shirt on watching a game shouting at the top of his lungs every time the ball goes near the net. God knows what the neighbours think.
The other son has just this second phoned me to say he’s on the train and can I fetch him in ten minutes…. errr no I can’t. He seems to think that I sit here with my car keys in my hand all day and night happily waiting for his call. I don’t. He’s 21 !!!!!!!!!!!!
I was having a happy little Easter blog,
and now I feel like this Ahhhhhhhh. Happy Easter everyone. Off I go to the station.

I love these teddies, hand made for me in the colours I’ve chosen, by a very clever lady called Julie.
