  1. Ahhh, thank you so much, your lovely words made me smile until Mr Husband asked what I was smiling at and I had to make something up so I didn't look big headed. Now I just look suspicious so in retrospect big headed might have been the more sensible route!

    I nominated you too! But I've been a bag of germs and couldn't get my bum in gear to let anyone know! Don't do two posts though, that would take you yonks. Loved reading this and finding out some more about the girl behind the blog ;)

    1. haha. Make him think you are having an affair. Like my husband probably does after I came back from "working late" with freshly touched up makeup....

      I'd actually been skiving off first in M&S makeup department and then in pub having a glass of wine and cheesy chips! Very bad me!!!
