 An unexpected day off for Derek, So we left the kids in bed ( we did ask if they wanted to come but I can't repeat what they said!) . We wanted to have a walk round - not too far but somewhere we hadn't been to before- So we chose lavenham.
Really Beautiful medieval buildings.

 Pretty windows. It was a lovely quiet day , not too many people about.

 I LOVE this house and the Wisteria growing over it.
 Just Beautiful!

We must have chosen the most expensive place to eat lunch though - not the tea rooms but the Marco Pierre White's Angle Hotel. I have to say , I have NEVER tasted such gorgeous pate before. We will go back another time I think.

Happy Birthday Dex

 Hubby's birthday today. Shame he had to work though.
He asked for a Smash book earlier this year when he saw mine and the girls, to put all his Rugby tickets etc in. So I got him one along with a DVD that he hadn't seen and two Jam speakers for his iPhone.

 As you can see - he was very happy.

This is the cake I made- couldn't resist the pinterest sheep and the instructions were so easy.
I won't leave it so long  next time .

Long Time no see!

 Guess where I went yesterday? I was So lucky to be asked along on the school media Studies trip to Warner Bro Studio...and see the Harry Potter tour.
I really loved it all . Every detail is taken care of.
Here is Harry's room under the stairs.

 The great hall..all decked out for Christmas.

 Snape, Hagrid and Filch.

 Dumbledor's Office.

 I loved all the little details.

 Outside in Privet Drive.

 The Potters house.

 Hundereds and hundreds of props.

 Outside every half hour it snows!!

 Drinking Butter Beer in Diagon Ally.

 A beautiful painting of Dobby - He is there too.

Just a small part of a magnificent Hogwarts model.

There is SO very much more to see and I will definitely go back again if and when I get the chance.

Battered and Bruised!

No I have not been attacked! 
I have been moving furniture about. Now that Natalie's room is done, I first, cleaned and tidied and remade Dan's bed and room, then, because I had taken a large table out of our room - it threw everything out. So, I changed the room round! Not easy with a very large heavy king sized bed and not a big room. I do have a couple of new bruises ( already had some from doing Natalie's room) and a new scratch or two- Off for a bubble bath...sigh

All Done (ish)

 I need to get some boxes so I can organize her craft supplies

 I also need to get her new single quilt - this is her old double one ( we have a new duvet cover - its purple!)

  The bed used to belong to her cousin Rosie ( who now has a cabin bed). Its perfect for here.

 The long table was bought for our room to go along the bottom of our king sized bed but it just gets in the way, so is ideal for Natalie . She has her TV , PC and even room at the end to craft. I need to get her a chair as this is an old dinning room chair.

 As you can see, I am also waiting for the curtains to arrive - I will probably have to put up her old ones for tonight.

 I have promised cushions for the bed too ( she wants owl shaped ones!!)

 I could do with a low table or box to put the printer on .

 We had to pop to the local hardware store when i was ready to put the shade up as there was a vital piece missing from the light fittings!

 The photo frames need photos in them too.

I wonder how long it will be tidy for - normally you can't see the floor!!

BTW - The rest of the house looks like a disaster area!
