Lots of Photo's!

Sorry photo overload on this post! Pictures from our trip to Filey! Little dear on Filey beach, Mum & Dad in beach tent reading magazines and listening to Ipod.
We went on one of the pedalo's and it did not sink!

Little dear racing around the track, she did ever so well, she even left 2 older boys for dust!

Little dear on the trampoline, £1.20 for 5 minutes. In which case this means I own my friend £000's for all the time little dear spends on there trampoline.

Little dear on a pony called Tilly, she did not want to go on one, but choose Tilly as we were walking past and we had to wait a further 20 minutes as Tilly was very popular. She absolutely loved it, so come her next birthday (4) she will be riding!

The boat even came out for us, it was only out of it's garage as the RNLI were fun raising in it.

This ones for Sara, Yum Yum! Gorgeous chocolate cake with black cherry and fresh cream filling and Cadbury's chocolate on the top! ***Update oh my god the best cake I have ever made!***

My veg patch is coming on a treat, the lettuces are actually beginning to look like lettuces.

My only purchase from a car boot sale ever, a herb rack that I have painted pink to put my new stock on when I attend my fairs.

I purchased 2 of these dishes from Etsy, they were so gorgeous I decided to get the lady in the States to make me some up, so some are my own design, they are 2 1/2 inches rounds and are a great gift as they say exactly what you need it too. If anyone is interested I am selling them for £5.95 + postage.

These are my favourites!
I have purchased a Clothkits skirt for my little dear, so I will post pictures on how it's going next time. I decided on one of the skirts as most of the skirts in the shop would make my little dear look like a slut! She is only 3 and sometimes I feel high street retailers think they are 3 going on 13, sometimes in her attitude & comments she thinks she is but at the end of the day she is only 3.
Another thing I forgot to mention was that I met Natalie from Summer by the Sea, it was great to meet someone in person, it was really strange as I did not have to introduce myself as she recognised me from my blog! We only chattered for 10 minutes as I was going down onto the beach. Great to meet you though Natalie, will pop back soon.
Have a great weekend, I'm going in the garden and tidying the house!

That cakes look delicious and very perfect looking too. I think I may have overdosed on it had it been in my house, I wouldnt be able to say no!.
I love the little things you are selling , they are so sweet.
Youre spice rack will look great as a display stand for all your goodies.

That cake looks gorgeous. I love Filey and after living in Scarborough for 33 years I finally went and visited Filey about four years ago!
The spice rack looks lovely and your veg patch is great. I would like to grow veg and have been wondering how it would grow in pots and look at yours, it's marvellous!

Hello Vanessa,
Gorgeous day at the beach and yummy cake too.
Those little plates are the cutest. I want one lol
I'm with you on the littl girl dress shops they are full of slutty wear, little mini skirts are so wrong on 3 year olds. Why do they all feel the need to try and make our little ones grow up so fast. Flaming shops.
Have a good week.
