My life lately…

20140508-085528.jpg So, I know I haven’t been around much recently, but I’m hoping that’s about to change! We’ve had lots going on In the last few weeks. First, there was Easter. Lillee was spoilt as per usual and came home from her Easter egg hunt with lots of chocolate and sweeties. Plus she had some new clothes, a toy rabbit and some things to make and do! Dan and I weren’t left out either, we had a few boxes if chocolates and a beautiful candle from my mom and dad. Then, we came to our 1 month anniversary. Not that we did anything! But it was a day to relive the memories from our wedding. Plus we have already lasted longer than some celebrity marriages! Since then, we have been spending some time as a family and had the first icecream of the year from an icecream van! Really yummy it was too. Aimie stayed over last week, which happened to also be the day we moved in three years ago! On that note happy anniversary to Kate and Wills. I watched the royal wedding while Dan and my parents started the decorating in our flat. (I was keeping an eye on Aimie and Lillee for a bit).

While Aimie was over, she and Lillee tried on my wedding dress. Super cute don’t you think? 20140508-091255.jpg
Lillee has also decided that she wants to make a rag doll. So I found out a book I have with the tag doll pattern plus clothes patterns in, and we have started the process of cutting making her. Apparently her name is going to be ‘Emily’ so far, Lillee has helped every step of the way and now we are ready to start sewing her! She even has a little pink heart to put inside. 20140508-091851.jpg
The plan is, either tonight or tomorrow while she isn’t at school we will get out my sewing machine and put her together. She has used my sewing machine once before when we made cushions for Mother’s Day. She had a great time helping my guide the fabric through and then filling it up with stuffing! 20140508-091655.jpg We were very lucky at our wedding with some generous gifts, and so a big Thank you go’s out to everyone who contributed to our ‘pretty things for the house fund’ and we have now brought out first thing.. Drumroll please… A new oven!! Ok so it may not be super exiting, but our previous oven was second hand, the grill didn’t work, the temperature was out and it was impossible to get completely clean. So for me, a brand new oven is amazing! Plus it look so much nicer in my kitchen than the old one did. I’m loving the fact that there is a glass door so I can see what I’m cooking without opening it and potentially ruining what’s inside.. Maybe I’ll try soufflés now?! Plus it’s easy to keep clean. And has an indicator to tell me that the hob is still hot so I won’t burn myself on it! 20140508-092757.jpg I actually have a whole kitchen reveal post planned so keep a lookout for that one as the oven isn’t the only new thing in our kitchen…

So that’s a little look into my life over the past few weeks! What do you think? Shall I keep these posts in or is there something else you would like to see on the blog? Let me know on the comments..
