Breaking Dawn

We have all (foolishly) decided at work to go to the midnight screening of Breaking Dawn Part 1.

We really must be mad as we still have to get to work tomorrow!!

I decided to make some cupcakes to celebrate the release of this film.

Now if you are a fan of these films you will be either for Team Edward or Team Jacob. I personally prefer Jacob.

11/11/11 Wear with pride

Last year I made some poppies for the family. 

They are reusable but a donation must be made every year to the Poppy Appeal.

Please wear your poppy with pride.


Wonderful goodies in the post

Came home from a hard day at work today and this lovely little package was waiting for me. Nom nom.

Thank you to the lovely Elizabeth at Rosalilium.

October Scavenger Hunt

Thank you once again for organising this Postcards from the P. P.

Oh yes I have managed to get this months in on time.

Crunchy leaves - on a lovely autumn walk (yes we did kicking up of the leaves as well).

Golden - ribbons on these gorgeous bells.

Candle lit - as always on my desk in the evening.

Pumpkin - spooky time.

Something eerie - well this picture of Little Miss is definitely that.

Black cat - from the buildings round York.

A river - we sat down and had a lovely picnic here.

Heritage - walking round the walls in the City of York, so much heritage here.

Graffiti/street art - we see this everyday on the way to school, and I love it.

Witches hat/broomstick - our wonderful witch that visits every Halloween.

Missing this month: 

Fog/mist - didn't see any

Sunset - the only time I saw one I only had my phone with me and the picture was not good and looked as though it was taken in the day!

Looking forward to next months list.

30 Day Declutter

I am going to be following (and joining in with) the wonderful Thrifty Mrs and her 30 Day Declutter.

The idea is to get rid of 90 items in 30 days. So by 30th November 2011 there will be 90 less items in my home. Well that is so long as I don't then bring in 90 items!!

So I will be adding a bit extra to this. Yes I will be getting rid of 90 items. But also I will not be bringing in any extra items (apart from food, groceries and Christmas presents for other people).

That way I should see the results.

I will keep things updated on here once a week.

So here goes. 

1. Old pair trainers belonging to Little Miss (too small).

Wonderful, historical, beautiful York.

How I love the city of York. The history and atmosphere in this place is just magic to me. Just before it was time to go back to school in September we decided to go away for a weekend break there. Train tickets booked we decided to stay at the youth hostel there.

After we dropped off our bags at the youth hostel we walked along the river and into the city. We had a lovely walk around taking in all the sights and planning our days.

The Railway Museum, we spent all morning wandering around here. It was very strange as we were some of the first into the museum , and in some areas we were the only people around.

We visited the Minster and had afternoon tea at Betty's. 

A visit to The Castle Museum. This has to be one of my favourite museums, so much to see and so fascinating.

A final walk around the city walls. Then having a go at making mosaics.

We also managed to fit in two visits to the Jorvik centre as Little Miss thought it was so good.

One of the best things is the museums we visited we can re-visit as many times as we want in the next year. 

I think this means we have to plan another visit...not that I will be complaining.
