Look What Came Through The Letterbox

I love the new format!



Gorgeous new china



My bargain radio




There are also a few tutorials


I did notice that on the front cover there a price of £1.50, i suppose people who sign up for one will get it free and they will be for sale in the shops!
Lots of gorgeous new goodies, I love the new messenger bags and the cagoules in a bag too!!
I suppose your wondering who our potential new family member could be, you might of remembered me mentioning about getting a dog but we decided against it for the moment and chose to go for a cat instead, Mason our youngest is a very timid little boy and we hope that by having a cat it would help him, so we contacted our local RSPCA as we had seen some of their cats on the web. On tuesday a gorgeous cat was brought to see us, she was beautiful to look at but much bigger than we thought she would be, she seemed very relaxed around us and the older two loved her even though she scrammed both of them, Mason was very scared and we couldnt even get him into the room. So we have decided to wait until Spring when the kittens will appear (is it just me but I just presumed that female cats were like us ladies and got pregnant all year round, apparantly not!!!) as we think a smaller cat would suit him!! Steve came up with idea of preparing him for one, so last night Steve put two toy cats by the side of Masons bed with a saucer and some small lego bits which are food and he has to feed them every night and morning bless him!!
I have Louie at home poorly today, so not really getting much done.
Have you visited Lulu Carter blog, she has fab taste, she recommended a website http://www.redcover.com/ , you have to register but you can then drool over the most gorgeous houses!!! My faves are Natalie Robinson's beautiful home, Amanda Knox who owns Decorative Country Living and Amanda Meade who owns English Country living!
Warning - it means you will have to spend even longer on the internet now!

We were talking to the manager in the shop of CK and she said people on the database get the CK mag free and everyone else has to pay. I have the pretty floral jug and I'm going to send Mr Thrifty off to buy me the butter dish on the way home from work.
The cat sounds like a great idea.

That website is terrific.

Get well soon little Louie, both my cupcakes are sickie too. There is still so many bugs about, isn't there honey.
We're off to the quacks later, enough is enough. so many sleepless nights for them and us, it's taking it's toll now.
Coughs and sticky eyes in our house. Lots of eye drops, calpol and night time cough meds. It's just no fun, poor little ones. I hope Louie is better very soon.
Good luck with the kitten too, awww bless your Mason. He sounds just lovey.
Gorgeous Cath Kidston things again, I'm so glad i kept most of my vouchers Yeay! i must get some of those dinner plates owww so pretty.

Many hugs,

Thank you for the awards, I have been on holiday, sorry, I feel a bit guilty going away, but it was wonderful.
I hope he is a good boy and looks after his cats! what are they called?
I would love a cat too, but I am not allowed to with three dogs! I love English Blues.
Enjoy all that lovely snow...we are.
