Bring Me the Spring!

Happy Monday Morning! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. After a week of non-stop rain and general gloom and doom we braved the elements yesterday and went for a bracing walk on the beach here. The sea was wild and so was the wind. It was a perfect day for Savannah to master the art of kite-flying, which she did admirably, and we ran and played and laughed as we struggled against a storm. It was fun!
Today, however, Savannah is running a temperature, and coughing and spluttering in bed. Back to square one. Miles was sick all last week and now it's ma princesse. Not fun!
So, I thought I'd cheer myself up with some pretty images and usher in the spring.

I've almost reached my 500th post milestone so I'm working on a few really special posts. I'll be organising a small giveaway to mark the occasion and hopefully my little shop will be opening around the same time. I've decided to spend some quality time with my family this week as Mr B will be on holiday for a few days. We have a couple of trips and activities planned if the weather holds up and the kids feel better, so I'm looking forward to that. I also need to finish ma petite boutique, spring clean my laptop (where did all these bookmarks come from???) , rearrange my blog a bit and maybe get some sleep!
Oh, I'm also considering accepting sponsorship applications once my shop is up and running.

Voilà, my latest news.
See you all later in the week!

I can't believe you've accomplished 500 posts and I've just recently found you! I love your finds and what IS it about those teacups that makes me want to squeeze them....oh, and those tents, too...and all the rest...tons of cuteness!
