hallo last week at the Lush xmas party in the very delicious fresh and tasty Bills of Brighton we did secret santa and I was over the moon with these lovely handmade matryoshka dolls from Sarah, apparently her boyf was responsible for the faces. Cant wait to hang these on the tree for a small amount of time before Olive yanks them off and eats them!!!

we had a lovely time up north and I had no need for the ridiculous amount of thermals I had crammed into the car, it was really warm and lovely. here are some 'on the road' shots and the last 2 were in Whitby which was holding a halloween dracula event so there were lots of goths wandering around eating fish and chips!!

so as of this afternoon I am gonna take a bit of a break from work and we are off on our first family road trip. First stop kettering, then all the way up to middlesborough and then back down to the midlands for a few days should be fun, providing the traffic is good, olive can handle being in the car for hours on end and I pack enough warm snuggly clothes for that bracing northern wind!!
see you all on the other side :)

It was my birthday yesterday and when I opened the HUGE box I had been presented I cried a bit and then was speechless for quite a while to say the least!!
when I went freelance 3 years ago now I had to put things like this on the wish list and it has been part of the dream ever since, so at the risk of sounding really cheesy yesterday one of my dreams came true. I have grown fond of my laptop although lugging it to and from the studio has been a pain and oh my a whole new world of brilliance is to be mine as I return Back to Mac :)))))))
