My weekend....


I love it when you wake up early and the birds are singing and you have nothing to get up for, drink a cuppa in bed, then  have a lazy breakfast and a nice bath with a fizzy bath bomb in it.

Later on we went for a lovely walk to see all the crocus snaking their way along the pathways and in the distance we could hear the church bells ringing,

the colours look lovely together.

Just a day doing nothing in particular, taking a few pictures and seeing little bits of spring emerge

the sun was so low it made the shadows of trees look enormous I'll be glad when they're full of leaves as I always thing trees look so sad in winter.

Anyway that was yesterday but today's been a busy day we've been to look for wallpaper and bought a new stove for the  snug

there was nothing wrong with the old one except it was a bit on the small side for the room and the doors open on this one making it look like a "real"  fire.

All I need now is a toasting fork so I can toast some bread over the coals....I wish!!

Looking for wallpaper in Next I bought this heart shaped lavender wreath for £5, it looks nice on top of the stove

can't wait to light the fire and burn some candles tonight while watching South  Riding, pity it's the last one as I've realy enjoyed it.

Before I go please excuse all the "poo" in the next picture

a pigeons nest with two babies in it and boy were they hungry!!!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend with nice sunny weather

love Lucey xx

I love the heart wreath and I have never seen an electric stove which has opening doors! They are really going all out to make them as realistic as possible now aren't they?! We have a "pretend" one too and I just have to dream of getting a real stove one day!!

Lovely photo's those crocus look gorgeous snaked like that, somebody had fun planting those ;-) Sounds like such a lovely sunday what there all about. Have a lovely week, dee x

What a lovely stove, it looks so warm and cosy and pretty too - I wonder if I could have one in my conservatory - would love a real wood burner but don't have anywhere here for a chimney so your stove would be the perfect solution! I might look for one - do you think they are economical to run? Betty
