I'm still alive......

Hello folks. Sorry for my serious lack of posts this past week or so. I've been spending my blogging time walking with the dog in an attempt to loose weight and get fit. The weather has been lovely and we've had some lovely walks, all of which I forgot to take the camera on. Thanks for all the tips on getting rid of my hiccups. You'll be pleased to know that I did go to bed that night hiccup free.
I have some new bed linen, sadly cannot afford CK or LA at the moment, but thought this set was lovely, it's from the Tesco Direct catalogue and at £11.74 for a king size set a bargain too.




And while out buying some mothers day flowers on Saturday I bought a £2 bunch for me too, aren't they pretty?
I've also been busy finishing a Tilda swap which I will be posting today, then I can put some serious effort into my Easter/spring swap parcels.
How's everyone else getting on with their swaps? Does anyone have theirs yet?
Take Care. xxxx Pixie xxxx

Hello Pixie!

Glad you're OK :)

Love the new bedding, it's really pretty. I've just bought a couple of Rosali pillowcases off ebay because they were fairly cheap. Thought they would give the bedroom a bit of a lift anyway!

I've had the Tesco catalogue for a couple of weeks and not looked in it.
Just found the bedding and me thinks i may have to put in an order 'hehe'. Like you I can't afford CKs prices.
Nearly done with my swap so will hopefully be able to poist it off at the end of the week.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
((hugs))

I've been trying to find some other bloggers who make things from the tilda book's because I now have a little tilda addiction going ( Thanks to you lol). Perhaps you could point me in the right direction.
