Christmas Planning

I know I know its really early, BUT i have big plans this year. My man and I are staying home on our own for the first time ever (EVER) over christmas. I am really looking forward to it, but I know its going to be quite difficult without seeing our family because thats christmas! At least if we have done it once we will know for the future!
So anyway...... I want this string to make the presents even cuter to hand over. I am also thinking about my some little garlands with them.

I am going to make our christmas wreath this year. I want two, one for our front door and one for our side door. I think I will try to organise a mummy and Natalie craft day for this little task because my Mum is good at craft things. I have no doubt my sister will tag along too. I know that my in laws will want a wreath so maybe I will start taking orders!!!

This fantastic shop has the kind of style I will be going for, some of these things are just too cute!

My mister also started our stockings (yes I got home sewing) last year but they never got finished, I am thinking I will try to surprise him and get them made up int time for our first christmas in our home together :) A lot of my ideas are coming from a variety of websites I find, I will try to keep them here to share!

Mr.Tibbs has decided he needs a cuddle so I guess I am done for the night!

This week.....

This weekend I must finish the scrap book for the lovely patient man at work who I keep promising to get the scrap done for and I WILL have it done for monday!!

This week I want to run once/do an exercise DVD once.

Try at least 1 new dinner - last week was green thai curry and it was much too spicey for me!! Mister loved it though :)

Keep on top of my tidying so that I don't spend a Friday night tidying!!!

See my Muma

Text my Dad and invite him over for an experimental dinner!

Arrange to see my Grandma at some point

Start my ideas list for christmas gifts just so that I can start collecting things

If I manage at least one of the aboves good intentions I will be made up!

In a conversation with a friend at work I realized we have only been in our new home for 8 weeks!! 

I am in love with this wallpaper for our downstairs toilet. I wanting to make it really loud and just an exciting place to be! I don't really know why because its just the toilet; I think its because its the one most people will use and actually see. Its like my hidden crazy!!!

Something that has caught my fancy again this weekend is making a shirred/smocked summer dress. I have some really cute fabric and I think its light enough to make a cute dress or even top really. I love this twirl dress, but we shall save that one for a later date!!! Although as I carry any extra weight on my waist it still might be quite flattering .....

Our Beaumont Blue decking is coming along nicely, we haven't painted all of it yet but it is getting there and it looks great! I think I am a big fan of colour in the garden! I want to paint the house white but once we go there that will be like a 2 yearly job and expense that I am not sure is the best option for us. Worth some thoughts I think!!

To sum up I am really happy with our time in the house, its lovely and I honestly think that the hassle was worth it for this little gem.

French Manicures

I seem to go through phases were I either really look after my nails or barely ever do them. At the moment I am quite into French Manicures, I am trying to learn how to do it free hand - just by practicing, but when I found these on Ebay as Such a great deal I just couldn't resist.

These help me to get the exact look I like every time, as opposed to the haphazard way I was finding it to be before!!

Too much choice!

So I need a new pair of sunglasses, my trouble is there is just too much choice for me! I have had a look around online but I am put off buying them online because of the hassle in sending them back if I needed to.

I had a Next pair and they lasted me for quite a few years, I was really happy with them. Now I am after some black over sized sunglasses, I like the idea of the Tortoise shell I just think that the black ones are more 'elegant'?!!? Like these.

We are also thinking about going on holiday abroad so part of me feels that we should just wait and I can see what is out there. I think I might have to try Next again and then decide from there!!

Really good natural blog

I have just spotted this blog and find it really cute, some of the tips are so simple.

Although some things will take collecting to make I would like to have a go at making some daisy salve for around our home.
