A few more pics...

I just got these photos from my camera, I have no editing soft ware...but hope to get some soon, then I can make my photos look a bit better.
I went with my sister in law and niece to 'Nature Tots', it was so much fun, I loved seeing all the kiddos running free in the forest, stomping around, playing with pine cones and having a generally lovely time.

We had a lovely dinner at the top of Piglets garden, the sunsets in Gurnard are second to none.

 I feel truly blessed to have days like these.

How does your garden grow?

We got a chance to go to the Brighton and Hove Open Gardens on Sunday, I can honestly say that it was one of the best days out I've had in such a long time. We met the sweetest most genuine people and saw the most beautiful secret gardens in the middle of the city that you could never imagine to be where they are. I can't wait to have a big garden! It's made me want to live the 'good life' even more, but also made it even more real that it is actually a possibility in the near future.

Pallets for compost heap.

Strawberry tree? it had beautiful peeling bark.

Snail shells on top of canes in the ground.

We had cake in every garden...well, it would have been rude not too.

Such a sweet idea for when your children have grown out of their wellies! Must remember this one.

I have a mild obsession with chickens at the moment too, these girls were lovely.

Out and About in Brighton

We're think of leaving Brighton, nothing personal, but we feel we've out stayed our welcome...nothing has gone wrong but we're ready for a new adventure. With this in mind we have been trying our hardest to make this most of living in this awesome city. It is a very cool city with lots to see and do.

As part of Brighton Fringe Festival the covered the clock tower in ombre T-shirts. Very cool.

It's mackerel season again, which means a free full fridge!

My Hubs caught a whopper!

We finally got to use the portable smoker that my Nana got us  for Christmas a couple of tears ago, SO good!!

We had left over Dewberry Liqueur that we made for the wedding, so we obviously had to make cocktails with it!

Yeah we did!

This photo makes me laugh. a lot. It's normally me pulling stupid faces and him with the blue steel.
Here we are at the No Fit State so good, I've you ever get the opportunity, GO!

So, we got married!

I have not written on here for a while, I kind of lost my way a little and wasn't really sure what the aim of this blog was. I don't really think I want to achieve anything with this blog, I'm going to use it as a journal, to look back on and smile about.


One thing I really have to smile about is the fact that I married my best friend. I don't have enough words in me to describe the extreme joyous mix of emotions that our wedding day gave me. It was the best day of my life. Ever. Fact.

Here are a few photos from the days leading up to and our wedding day.
(some photos have been stolen from my friends Instagram.)

Us getting very excited on the boat on the way to the lovely little Isle of Wight (where we got wed)

Not the most flattering photo, but a lovely memory of waking up together on the morning of the wedding.

The wedding ceremony at The Apple Farm.

My Pa and I ( and a lucky gust of wind that made my dress look awesome!).

Just arriving...I was SO nervous at this point! I literally didn't stop shaking for about 2 hours!

This one's going to be for the thank you cards!

Getting married to my sweet, kind husband was the best decision I've ever made. People say that getting married doesn't change anything, but I don't think they could be further from the truth. I feel complete, like, more complete than I felt before. There is a sense of security that I can't describe but I can just feel it. I feel like I'm a member of a special 'married club'...I know, I probably sound like a bit of a moron, but I guess I'm still in that honeymoon period, I just really want to make sure that I always remember feeling like this and why I feel like this.
Moon, I love you.

p.s Thanks to our lovely photographers Sacco & Sacco for setting up most of these photos, I will put their photos up soon (they will be a million times better than these IPhone shots!!)

All packaged and ready to go!

My chalkboard advent calender, I was trying to be good but then someone bought me a chocolate one..oh well!

My homemade wreath, made from ivy, bits of chirstmas tree, a wire coat hanger and a couple of pieces of simple.

Awesome wrapping paper from paper chase.

Christmas sparkles!

Winter sky.

Cheese, tea and more cheese...I had some VERY strange dreams last night after our little (ahem) cheese binge!
