Welcome 2009!

It's been a while since my last post and since then a brand new year has met us. I hope you have all been able to enjoy the holiday period, and not been rushing around like blue-a*se flies trying to make it nice for everybody else!

Our Christmas was a mixture of both, nice and relaxing and then running around like blue-ar*e flies. Lots of cooking (lots of eating (and sadly now lots of dieting!)) and then I worked between Christmas and New Year. We have also been trying to move Aimee into her new room but it is a work in progress. All the decorating has almost been completed, but there is a few areas by the window that just wont dry. heaters have been blasting at it and finally it seems we have conquered the wetness, and thus hopefully the paint will stick! The problem was because the room has been empty for some time and not heated.

We chose real oak wood flooring as Aimee has asthma and carpets are not the best for her. Got a blinding bargain on the floor, Homebase had both a sale and their 10% day, so it ended up costing only £17.99 per sq meter!! Can't wait to see that down.

We also have a new baby in the family, little adorable, and totally edible, Stanley. Aimee and Amber were both enthralled with their new little cousin.

Finally, I am going to announce the blog candy winner either later today, or tomorrow. I think I might use a random number generator as there are too many names to print out and put in a hat ;o) Thank you to everyone who left a comment and the very best of luck to you all. Don't despair if you don't win (and there can of course be only one), as we shall have more blog candy for you all in the not to distant future xx
Happy New Year to you all xxx
