Me and Mr Lucey have been married 32 years today, where does the time go? One day you're a young couple and the next you're well....not so young.
I love these deco cards.
Tonight Mr Lucey will be cooking pork medallions with a cider, bramley apple and shallot sauce, ( I would cook but nobody wants to eat a cremated tea do they hehe) with gratin dauphinois washed down with a glass of two of champage, I'm sooo spoilt.
At the weekend we're off to Harrogate for a bit of shopping, anyone know where all the best shops are?
As soon as I saw this magazine I knew I was in for a treat,
and I wasn't dissapointed, it's crammed full of all things christmas,
I need to find some silver bich branches so that I can make a tree like this
and my cupboard is full of empty jam jars just waiting to be filled with tea lights, I don't think my staircase will look this nice though.
There's lots of"nibbley" food in it aswell these look delicious
and what about this gingerbread house
it reminds me of when the kids were little I always got them a ready made kit, where you just iced all the sides and roof on but one year no matter how thick or thin I made the icing it just wouldn't stick together, so in a fit of temper I smashed the house up!!!! The kids were not amused and sent their dad for another one and I wasn't allowed in the kitchen, even now at their age they still expect to see a gingerbread house on the table, mmm I could just murder a ginger biscuit and a cuppa.
The type of book I like to read is set about 100 years ago and the family haven't got two ha'pennines to rub together and their bath night consists of a tin bath in front of the fire, a tiny piece of carbolic soap and a raggy towel, and the whole family got in the same bathwater!!
Some years later here's what my bath night consists of...
the all essential hair dye, not that I have many grey hairs you understand!
a selection of bubble bath,
some "soap and glory" body scrub that smells of strawberries,
a fluffy towel and some body lotion,
nail varnish, heel balm and tweezers.
There's also candles, a glass of wine and a magazine, do I realy need all of this???
If my nan was still here she'd say "when I was a girl all we had was a tin bath and a little bit of soap"!!
Morning, you know that lovely warm feeling you get when you see Postman Pats little red van van pull up outside your door and he stands there with a parcel for you? well it happened to me last Thursday.
I'd won a giveaway from Sian at lavender hearts and I was delighted, there were so many goodies packed into an enormous box and they were all for me!!
There was a CK mug filled with chocolate drinks, a CK milk jug (how lucky am I?) that had some chocolate bars inside, tea towels, chocolate cereal from Dorset cereals yummy, and some cereal bars, a jar of homemade plum jam, and a chicken shaped tea pot.
Thanks ever so much Sian.
Love Lucey xxx
PS I see a few of you are having the same problems as me getting pictures on my blog, it took ages to get these two piccies on ( I would have loved to have put more on but couldn't wait any longer) how do we resolve this???
