Cute BackPack Alert

How rad are these backpacks from Carrot Company?  Me thinks that navy striped number may cushion the blow of going back to Uni a tad :)

One major thing I miss on my return to England?  Good coffeeeeeeeee...!  I have cravings but alas shall settle for a pot of strong English Tea (Milk & 1 please) :)

Have a glorious weekend Campers!


Hilarious Man Babies

How funny are these man baby photographs as found here?  It appears they've been doing the rounds for a while now but I've only just stumbled upon them!  Seems I may have to get to work on PhotoShop, HeeHee!  They'd make an excellent novelty Fathers Day gift :)


Greetings from England


Darling Readers,

I'm so sorry for my lack of blogging of late!  I've left Hubby & Fearno for a quick jaunt across the pond to enjoy a spot of sunshine in the Motherland :)

It's been so lovely to catch up with friends and family and to meet my beautiful nephew Harry.  I am in real life Aunty Love and cannot seem to get enough of his 10 perfect fingers and 10 perfect toes.  Clucky isn't the word, Ha!

It's been lovely to escape the Melbourne Winter and despite average(ish) weather so far, the light nights and beautiful Countryside are working wonders to relax me after a crazy semester at Uni!

For now I shall sign off but shall attempt to update again soon!

Enjoy the poppies,

Kiddie Car Wash


How fabulous is this car wash with a difference?  HaHa!  Perfect for a hot Summers day and I'm sure it would prove hours of fun!  I can almost hear the giggles from here :)


May the Force be with you...

I haven't seen this advert over here in Aus, but my Mum put me on to it after viewing it in the UK!  It made me chuckle on what has been a distinctly average day so I thought I'd spread the love...!

Monday Morning Greetings from Fearn!



Hello Wonderfuls, & HAPPY MONDAY!

How was your weekends?

Unfortunately I remained cooped up in my office all weekend working on the above Technology project as part of my Uni course!  I've made a Daily Task Board for use in the classroom & must say I reckon it's quite impressive :)  All the pieces are detachable (stuck on using magical velcro) & the back contains a little pocket for all the spares!  The creating was rather fun, but the 14 hour write up of it was draining (to say the least) & I've woken up this morning feeling like death!

1 week remains of Uni which means 2 weeks today I shall be jetting off to the Motherland for embraces with friends and family & snuggles from my beautiful newborn nephew!  Eeeeee...SO exciting!

Have a fabulous week Peeps,

Paper Cuckoo Clock

How amazingly random is this cuckoo clock made from paper?  & the best bit?  It really works!  I love the description on the website...'Great as a gift for people who don't take life to seriously!' Ha, I love it!

Have a fabulous weekend y'all!  I shall be cooped up in my office studying but hoping to escape my confines on Sunday to go here!  Eee...fingers crossed!

Growing Up

I adore this idea for recording a little one's first year.  Apparently little Lucien looks kinda grumpy on the 1 year one as his Mummy had to tell him off to stop playing with/eating the felt letters, HaHa!  Nawww...SO cute!

Danny & Annie

So this video has been doing the rounds for a while now in Internetsville but further to my earlier post I had to share for those who haven't seen yet!  It chokes me up every time!

"Being married is like having a colour television never wanna go back to black & white."

I wrote an e-mail to Annie after watching this the first time!


Old Love







I was reminded recently of my TOTAL adoration for old people in love.  Seriously, the mere sight of an elderly couple holding hands in a shopping precinct is enough to make my heart want to explode with joy!  

When we got married, my hubby & I wrote a list of hopes and dreams for our life together, it was totally done in fun at the time and we giggled as we jotted down some hilarious guess-tamations for our future years as man and wifey.  They're now tucked away in our honeymoon scrapbook & I'm sure given a few years will be forgotten about.  Who knows when or where we'll be when we find them again & read back to compare what the years have brought?  The's a funny thing!

Keep loving each other,


(PS - Total proof that you're NEVER too old to bounce on beds!)

Penny Floor

Woah!  How impressive is this Penny Floor idea as seen over at Revolver?  More to the point how painstakingly long would it have taken to lay them all?  I'm one of those people who loves counting coins.  My Father-in-law has a HUMONGOUS whiskey bottle that is full of shrapnel and everytime I visit I vow to spend a few hours counting and bagging it all up for him...for a small share obviously :)  Even I though, have to admit that floor would be one challenging task!

Apparently the floor is made up of over 340, 000 coins with the oldest penny dating back to 1908.  All together the pennies weigh approx 2,000 lbs!  IN-SANE, Ha!

For Now...
