Pink Saturday 2nd Birthday


For Pink Saturdays second birthday i thought i would introduce you to Bassettina Tina for short. For the last two years I’ve taken part in operation Christmas child packing the boxes in a big cold warehouse. We came across Bassettina and thought she would make a lovely cuddly toy for a small child so we slipped her into one of the boxes. Sadly though one of the other packers had different ideas and said we couldn’t send her because she was hand made took her out of the box and threw her in the bin!!!!!!!!!!!! Quite disgusted we decided to liberate her and she escaped the cold warehouse stuffed in my bag. She now has a fab life sitting on my bosses printer at Bassett Court where we work,

The last eight days I have been busy watering the garden, Joes been hogging the computer mind you he has been revising for his GCSE’s so  shouldn’t complain between that and developing an unhealthy appetite for Ashes to Ashes my little blog has been a bit neglected so here are the last 8 photos.

I have decided that as I only had three responses to my little give away I would make some for each so let me have your addy’s girls and I hope to get them in the post by the weekend

Day 137 and a give away


Having said I would do a give away for my 500th day of taking photos I was then a bit stumped as to what it should be. And then this fab book arrived from Amazon, a recommendation from someone on Ravelry, and with it inspiration. I will be giving away four crocheted coasters of which this is one just leave a comment between now and Saturday and I will draw a winner then

I’ve been busy in the garden over the last few days and my little blog has been a little bit neglected so here we are playing catch up


We have the most fantastic place in Milton Keynes called Camp Hill which is a working community for seventy adults with learning difficulties we often pop into there lovely cafe where they make all their own food and once a week they visit the local retirement village to sell freshly baked bread. Well it would have been rude not to!
