Five on Friday 28th February 2014 Edition

Hey friends,

I’m back after a mini blogging break, which loosely translates to we’ve all been sick, ex-haus-ted & abit more tired with a cherry on top!!

That doesn’t mean that God hasn’t been good in these tough times, just that it’s been a rubbish couple of weeks! I’ve been blessed by my prayer triplet, mentor, a word of encouragement & a parcel from the USA.  Also I’ve been reminded of the quote ‘this too will pass’ & so it will.

So here goes with my joy-filled Five!!!

ONE – Planning Little Miss’s 1st Birthday

It’s so special to plan your baby’s 1st birthday.

Tissue paper pom-pom’s, a ruffled cake & pink macaroons are in the plan.

I’ll post pictures next week & we’ll see if it all comes together. Whatever happens I’m so blessed to be celebrating this precious little girl with our friends & family. What a joy she is.

With her birthday also comes the end of the baby stage. It’s emotional/we made it!

TWO – Chalk Paint Ercol Chairs

I’m so happy I decided finally to get my Ercol chairs painted with chalk paint! I love the look & Ercol are back on trend. Have a look & let me know what you think.

The 3 different colours idea came from seeing the styling at Ravenhurst B&B in Cheltenham, their colour way really pops! I really love colour & the colours we chose go so well with our scheme at home.

THREE – Spring is on it’s Way

I’m overjoyed to see the first signs of Spring. I’m so over Winter.

Me & Master H planted some bulbs last year & he’s so excited to see the little shoots coming up.

All around my hometown I see daffodils, primroses & snowdrops & every sighting lifts my heart a little. Yay for Spring!

FOUR – My ‘Geek Chic’ Glasses

I didn’t get on with contacts in the end so after I resigned myself to glasses it took me an AGE to choose a pair.

As soon as I switched optician & walked into Specsavers I was sold on these Gok Wan designer specs. I only really need them for driving but find myself wearing these a lot more than I need to. I have another pair as sunglasses.

I thought the service was brilliant & was interested to hear GW himself designed their uniforms, good work!

FIVE – Sprinkle of Glitter Motivational Monday

This gal always hits the mark with her blog posts, I especially enjoy Louise’s Motivational Monday feature. This is the post that spoke to me most this month.

Thanks to my hosts, April, Christina, Darci & Natasha.

  1. The invitations turned out nice for her 1st Birthday. Glad your feeling better. Also like the chairs and the different colors. After years of wearing glasses got contacts a few weeks ago. Really like them. All the best!

  2. Love your party pics! I just posted my daughter’s first birthday from last year because I am starting on this year’s!
