Cath K Spending Spree !!

Sorry I haven't blogged since Sunday but I'm having a half stressful/half exciting week , one minute I'm having a ball the next I'm tearing my hair out.
There simply aren't enough hours in the day, I am so busy with orders, prep for a market and prep for a new on line venture I have steam coming off my paint brush! Then there's the weather, I am finding it up lifting and pleasurable one minute then draining and tiring the next. On top of all of this the kids aren't sleeping with the heat and are up up some ridiculous hour and therefore turn into little monsters at teatime which makes life even harder.
ok sorry moan over, deep breath............
try to remember happy times...............
oh yeah that cuppa & cherry on top (as my 3 yr old calls them) I enjoyed earlier, bliss !!!!
You've guessed it my birthday money spends have arrived from Cath K
anyone for tea ? It tastes so much nicer out of this believe me

My handbag is looking really swish with this pencil case, gadget case for my camera and mirror !

There' that moment of bliss again, the perfect afternoon snack before the school run !

What do you think ? money well spent I say, just need a nice dotty cake stand to top my china off dont you think ?

Finally today on my way home from work I popped into the new dress agency shop in town for a child free browse, I spotted this..... think all my floral, shabby, vintage spends have influenced my taste this week because I am so not a blue girl but at £12 I just had to buy it !

  2. Love, love, love your dress and can I please come to yours for a cuppa? I think I might NEED those cups, maybe for my birthday if i'm lucky.
    Having the same problem with my little man with the sleep and heat, he has terrible monster syndrome toward the end of the day.

  3. Oh my you lucky girl! I just love CK and am going to head into Leeds sometime soon to cheeck out the new store, especially now the sale has started!! That dress is a bargain and really gorgeous - I'd love one for my holidays but if I travelled to your neck of the woods it would turn out to be a very expensive dress now wouldn't it!!! I've got a wedding plea on my blog currently - if you get chance pop over for a read and let me know if you can help!!! Justine xx
