Finally Back in the Room!

Well the summer holidays seem to have passed by in a flash but it has seemed like ages since I did anything in my craft room. The kids went back to school last week but then hubby was poorly and off work for a week and the dog wasn't great either so my visions for last Tuesday of sitting down with a cup of tea and enjoying absolute silence became two trips to the doctors a trip to the chemist, a trip to the vets and food shopping! The rest of the week didn't get any better but I won't bore you with that!

I had a parcel delivered yesterday with this yummy stuff..

I have been lusting after the Letterpress stuff for ages and when I saw that the Docrafts website had 50% off everything, I couldn't resist!

I have also been encouraging this little guy who is 7 next week and already knows that he wants to be a chef to make some meals on his own. So last week he made this salad, all by himself, cutting and choosing the ingredients himself

Radishes, avocado, little gem lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, red onion.. he put loads of lovely bits in.

And made a tasty salad dressing with lemon, olive oil from our trees in Italy and sea salt. It was yummy and we had them with my favourite lunch, jacket potatoes..

Luckily little one's plans are that when he owns his resturant, I will be a bit old and he doesn't think I should drive so he is going to pick me and hubby up each day and drive us to his resturant where we can eat for free, whatever we want, even if it's not on the menu.

This week my friends and I are organising a joint birthday party for our kids and 60 of their friends at the local cinema. Hopefully at some point I will be able to make some cards!

I hope you are having a great week and thanks for taking the time to read this post, I'm sure you must have all thought I had given up blogging!

What a cheeky smile and a lovely comment from him for you to remember. At that age my youngest daughter told me she was never leaving home and was going to keep a horse in the garage!

Oh my gosh, what a treasure trove of goodness, from your lovely new toys to your gorgeous son and his yummy looking salad to your sweet story. How kind is he to be thinking about the future, indeed, what a delight it would be to eat a free meal every now and then!! Too cute!!
