Breakfast Pancakes

What a lovely morning it is up in Lancashire today. Our kitchen dresser was beaming with sunlight this morning ..  Bright sunshine albeit freezing cold..ooh you can really feel it this morning there is a definate nip in the air, i must admit i do like feeling and seeing the seasons and the months changing.

On this mornings dog walk to the park i could see that the trees were full of change, the leaves turning a shade of golden yellow and orange, makes my heart sing with joy..halloween is on its way..

And to finish off it was a treat of pancakes drizzled with fresh lemon and sugar this morning .. yum yum..

A late Saturday and Sunday post

Well on Saturday morning we were all very tired due to our neighbours having a generator running all night. I finally nodded off at 5am and it stopped at 6am, we were up for 8 as Saturdays are always busy. We dropped our son off for his Kickboxing lesson at 10am, we needed to do some chores in town as you do and returned home late afternoon to find that we couldn't get through our front gate as the electric board were digging up the front street and our electric was off. We didn't realise at first and when my OH went out side to question what was going on they replied with oh by the way your electric will be off all day! Needless to say the freezer had had it, i just can't believe that even our neighbours didn't say anything, and i thought the electric board would have had to notify us if they were planning to turn electric off ? .. ooh i was so mad! now they have left the mess and haven't even come back to sort it out!!

Chopper Group .. Thursday


Hello my bloggy friends, i didn't post last night as on a Thursday night i go to Chopper Group .. its basicly a group of about 10 or so that meet at different pubs around Lancashire, then we ride around.. its a glorified pub crawl really!!

My goodness i have been so busy today i nearly forgot to post, its only day 2 of my post a day !! I have been making up 40 wedding day activity packs for two weddings coming up this saturday, i sell them on ebay along with my handmade shabby chic items and other bits and pieces.
All in all there are 5 A4 sheets to a pack, cut into 4, so 20 sheets all in all! so lots and lots of cutting.


The weather is awfull at the moment here in Lancashire, we have had a real down pour this evening, the front street was flooded within 10 minutes and the drains were overflowing .. thankfully we havent seen it so bad here as other places in the country.
Looking forward to a nice cup of tea now and a bloggy read.. nite all :)

Well i have not blogged for such a long time due to many reasons, readers of my blog will know that we have had our fair share of health problems this year, but i am glad to say that we are all good and back on track :)

I am struggleing a little with this new bloggy format that has been changed since i last posted.. i do hope this post works !!

I was reading kelly's  www.handmadeathome.blogspot.co.uk blog and she is offering a pif for her first 3 commenters on her new post, as she too had not blogged for a while. These 3 commenters will then need to do a pif in return on their blogs.

So i am pledging that i do a post a day for October, get back into the swing of things, i have missed blogging and have had so many things to blog about, i look forward to posting beautiful homely pictures now the weather is changing, lots of candles, warm puddings, and crafty makes. So for now my bloggy friends i will say night night for now, and see you all tomorrow :)
