For some reason when looking for new goodies all I come across are Hedgehogs - I think this animal may even become the NEW bunny or bird! Here is a few of my fav's!
All from the wonderful place that is etsy!

Avas Tea Party

Can you believe that has been up and running for a month! now that's crazy! It has been a complete whirlwind not that I am complaining!

Anyway I wanted to make everyone aware of - if you do nothing else this month, this you just have to do - NO QUESTIONS!!

Please take 10 minutes a) to read the story and b) to make a special time for your own little one's believe me after reading it you will want to anyway.

I first came across the story of Ava when searching through for prints for my 2 girl's room's.

Just this little short post today - but one to make you think and snuggle your babies a bit more tightly!

Much love Tam x

Well, we have moved! I have gone from having loads of boxes around ready for the launch of Unique Boutique to having double around from the dreaded move! Now really I should be used to moving this being my 8th house in 5 years! my poor, poor children and very well travelled pooch!

Bella is a parsons Jack Russell (has long legs!) and is in all reality my first "baby" she now has a new Buddy - Florence, a beautiful Labradoodle! boy is she gorgeous and has settled in to our mad house perfectly!

But really apart from having a nine month old with bronchitis and a stubborn donkey refusing to get in the float and then back out of it (my husband really does have to put up with a lot!) and to finish it all, an escaped goat in the kitchen - things could of been a lot worse! sometimes I wonder if anyone else lives with this madness or if it's just me! would love to know!

Moving couldn't of happened at the worst time - school holidays! Winter - Miss 4 has been such a wonderful help, it has been an absolute delight having her from school, it has made me realise just how much I miss her when she is at school. What I mean is when we collect her from school she is tired and at weekends she is recovering from the week. So to have her off for a number of weeks it is lovely to see her happy/brilliant personality. The girl is really funny - I say she takes after her mummy!!

Anyway I'm off to enjoy some more time with her before I lose her back to school!
Much love
