Cheers Emma!

How nice of Emma Bridgewater to think of me when designing this new mug....lol.....I've showed it to hubby, so maybe it will appear in my christmas stocking!! The new CK catalogue popped through my door yesterday so I also told him to pick anything out of there too! Can you believe how quick this year has gone? This time of year is my favourite, I think its something to do with be able to wrap up in woolies and not worry about pasty legs and arms on show...lol! Today has made me feel all warm and cosy, the weather here in Cardiff is awful, so I am very grateful that I dont have to go anywhere. My older two are at their dads and my step son is coming tomorrow, so it just me and the little one (who has only just got dressed) as hubby is currently on a golf course playing a 36 hole final, so rather him than me, he text me before he started to say that the other fella is in a green v neck with a white polo top same as him and they have the same golf bag and putter, what must they look like!!
We now have a teenager in the house hold as my step son turned 13 this week, he is such a laid back boy, a real joy to have around and the other boys adore him, although I dont know how cool it is for your 5 year old brother to kiss and hug you...lol

I'm going to award this to......

I just saw the mug recently and thought I'd be happy to find that under the christmas tree!

Mum tells me she's Christmas shopping next week and I'm working on printing off some things I'd like from CK!

Love that mug!
I'm so with you on putting away the pasty legs for winter, I breathe a huge sigh of relief when I can get the boots out again. Auntumn clothes are much more flattering!

brilliant mug! that Emma's definately one of us then!
As for autumn..at long last I can wear my long coat and hide my big bum again! yay!

Your 'dix' paint name comment made me laugh..we once had to buy a clematis because it was called 'Pink willy'..The boys thought it was hilarious..and yes they must have been about 8 and 9..I have pink willy gracing my garage walls every spring! x
oooh my word verification is 'bamsuch'..sounds like a famous skateborder!

MaryPoppins said...

I hope it is alright am going to send payment to the Address on your web for the cookie cutters and crochet heart
Many Thanks Mary X

Amanda said...

Hehe I have way too many mugs, I don't think T would let me have another one :o( He has promised to buy me a new hot water bottle with fluffy cover for Christmas though so I guess I can't complain!

Glad to know you're able to keep warm and snuggly - much smarter than hubby hehe

Cool mug but I think I would prefer the best mum one from your shop! trouble is I would have to buy it for myself. I am tempted to buy the friends are like angels one as I think the sentiment is so true.... I have posted a give away on my blog so if you would like a large mural painted on canvas log your comments and see if you are the lucky winner.

Keep warm and best wishes
Alex

MaryPoppins said...

Thank you for your lovely message, glad it got there safely :)

How kind you are on how I may look, It is my wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks, nine years, so I do feel i look somewhat older than i do in my wedding photographs Lovely to look back on though :) Ohoo would love to get the SJP one

Hello! Thanks for stopping by! Bicester village is good for some bargains, but many of the brands are still too expensive for my budget. The CK, Monsoon, Whistles and The White Company are all worth a visit but even more so after Christmas when everything has been super discounted. There's even a Jimmy Choo shop - but I only look.
PS: You have a lovely kitchen!

Lea said...

Hi sweetie. Thank you for entering my blog layout giveaway.

I just wanted to let you know, you are in fact the winner :-)

If you go to my design blog, and pick from one of the pre-mades, i'll arrange to set it up next week, when we have internet access again.

Take care,
Lea xx

P.S You have a lovely blog xx
