i'm back!

We had a brill holiday! Went to some fab places, my fave was Mykonos which was just beautiful. It was so sunny everywhere and hot hot hot. (The kids preferred it when we stayed on board of course....they had no appreciation whatsoever of the Sistine Chapel or the Leaning Tower of Pisa but loved the pool and endless ice cream!)
Got home today to lots of clouds, unpacking and a mountain of washing and I need my bed now...

I've been tango'd

I went for a spray tan tonight and I am now bright orange!!
I hope that when I shower in the morning I will be a normal tanned sort of colour....but I fear my white sheets may never be the same again...

3 more sleeps....

....till we swap cold, windy, rainy Yorkshire for the sunny Mediterranean woohoo
But what on earth made me think that going shopping for holiday clothes in August was a good idea??
Went today and the shops are full of autumn/winter! Not a vest or shorts or a swimming cozy to be seen!
Will clearly have to do my retail therapy in euros!
Saw lots of my new autumn designs in the shops though so that was good :-)

happy haircut

Where does the time go?
So much to little time!
Trying to get everything done before our hols, don't know whether I'm coming or going.
Crammed 6 hours work into 4 hours today then took Jodie to the hairdressers. She decided to have a fringe cut....then burst into tears 'cos she hated it!!! The poor hairdresser didn't know what to say! Oh joy!
Here are some more birdies to add to my collection.

The weather is rubbish!
It's freezing cold and has rained all day!
Summer holidays? Feels more like April!
I've had the heating on!
The kids have been fighting all day and I am grumpy grumpy grumpy.
Time for bed I think!

millie and boris revamp

Very excited to see the new Millie and Boris range has arrived in store at Mamas and Papas!
I designed a li'l bunny for my interview at M&P in 2002 and they liked it so much they took us both on! 
The bunny became Millie and I spent the best part of 6 months painting her and her pal Boris (yes painting! was in the days before they decided CAD wasn't a fad!)
I was sooo sick of them by the end!

Anyway they proved to be a big success and I was asked last year to give them a bit of a revamp!
Really loved working on it this time and the very talented Vicky at M&P has put it all together so well.
The range is in store go and buy it!!!
