Happy Monday everyone...thought I would show you what I believe to be the gates to heaven...and what Beautiful gates they are...To be here would be pure bliss!  In other news my precious daughter had x-rays to reveal she did infact break her wrist while away on camp...teachers believed it to be sprained so allowed her to continue with various activities like canoeing etc...picked her up Friday night only to see that she had no support on her wrist...teachers had removed it as it had belonged to the school???{unbelievable I know!} and was also astonished to know that my child was somewhere where there were no workable telephones {and with all of today's technology} very disappointing to know that this was not a great concern to them...100 or so school children taken far into the mountains participating in a whole range of first time adventurous experiences and with no access to outside help...AMAZING! and my child was not the only child injured, another child was taken to hospital after falling from the mountain bikes and others also fell and injured themselves[it was like a war zone}...You know what annoys me the's the fact that I spent so much time trying to protect my children keeping a watchful eye on them and then you give them to someone who says they will look after them and then the second you take your eyes off them ,the second you let your guard down and trust someone else's ability to care for them something happens...these teachers have a duty of care and I think on this occasion they were not careful enough... anyway I could go on forever but I'd much rather focus my energies now on the beautiful things in life...and that view above is stunning! Have a lovely day xx                                    image via tumblr

Do you ever have one of those days where you really believe the universe is throwing everything it's got at you? Where you're sure there's meant to be a teaching moment in it but for the life of you just can't find it...It all started with the dreaded school camp...something that always makes me uneasy...but hey they tell you "believe me this is going to make you stronger"so each and every year I nervously send my children away on a learning experience to participate in a range of first time experiences without the watchful eye that only I can have ...let me tell you it didn't make me stronger to receive a call stating that my daughter had come off a bmx bike while riding down a hill and has what they believe a sprained wrist [she can barely ride a real bike on flat ground] and I received this call at 9:45pm... questionable time one would say!.. and then I was unable to call back due to poor reception from them being so far into the mountains...also questionable!... so I lay in bed unable to help my child and still have to wait till tonight before I can assess her injuries ...I still can't fathom why teachers feel the need to take our children away each and every year to far off lands and encourage them to participate in activities where there can be a chance of a worst case scenario...mine being a sprained wrist "just saying!" anyway this then triggered a string of universal catastrophes{of course}...many too long to explain but one resulting in my 6 year old entering class still wearing his dripping raincoat and me not even noticing why he looked so bewildered [well I'm embarrassed!]  I know it could be worse and I'm thankful that it isn't but sometimes you just have to question the universe's motives...Anyway I suddenly feel so much better having vented my feelings and am ready for whatever else the universe wants to throw at me...bring it on! Thanks for listening have a lovely weekend xx

Thought I would share with you some gorgeous kitchens today and ask your opinion on mirrored I am seriously loving them right now...
do you consider them practical? or does beauty win over the voice of practicality they definitely have a wow factor and that's what I love!
when I see such beauty as I do in this gorgeous kitchen by the very talented Designer Bree Oliver [from the beautiful blog" A Paddington Perspective" I think I fall more in love with the idea of having a mirrored splashback...
they definitely add style and glamour to any kitchen...
or do you prefer the coloured glass splashback? for which I love as well and is a much safer choice as it hides more sins and is equally as Beautiful if chosen in the right colour? So what do you think? would you ever consider one? do you know anyone who has one and if so are they still loving it? let me know I'd love to hear your thoughts! Have a Beautiful Wednesday xx

With Easter all but officially over I now declare it clean up time...after I eat my final piece of fruit bread with jam that is! {I do think I'll keep this tradition going a bit longer though!} Anyway a little bit of normality wouldn't go astray...although after consuming a truck load of chocolate I somehow think the children will disagree with me... Got to Love them ! Hope you all had a Beautiful Easter break see you tomorrow xx

What can I say...I'm slowly warming to the idea of an Easter table display...this one is just divine...pretty-n-pink!
This one being ever so sophisticated...
this I threw in for sheer delight...check that TREE!!!
This one being gorgeous in all it's soft pastel colours...I might just need one of those white ceramic bunnies...or two!
Now which style to choose? I love them all...One things for certain though I think I may have just started another family tradition with the decorating of the Easter table...never thought I'd succumb but with so much beauty out there and the fact that Bed Bath-n- Table have half price decorations [that's right ladies half price...don't walk run!] I think I was sold! Have a Beautiful Day xx
