My Bed || October Diary


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Today has been fun. 

The gang stayed over last night and in this teeny house, every inch was occupied. I must say, I'm always impressed by how hospitable this little building can be. I put Hazel in Darcy's room (I never let the boys stay in there, I don't know why, I just don't like the idea), Jack in the spare room because he has cat allergies and that's the only room they don't go in, Ciaran on the sofa (poor Ciaran drew the short straw) and me in my giant comfy bed. 



Let me tell you about my bed. I don't think I've ever properly addressed this before. My bed. Hot damn. It's amazing. I like to be in it and be a comfort sandwich. There's the memory foam mattress of loveliness, a duvet, a topper, the fitted sheet, me and then the softest, most glorious duvet you've ever nestled in. I went all out a few weeks ago when I revamped my room and bought 300 thread count sheets from John Lewis and despite the dent in my bank balance, I don't regret it. If you can splurge in the bedroom department (make of that what you will), do. I figured, I spend a lot of time in that soft rectangle, I may as well make it the best it can be!

I digress. 



A moochy morning of chatting and playing with Darcy (Matt dropped her off at lunchtime) and we hopped in the car for a jaunt to the countryside and the best Sunday roast I've had in, I'm gonna say it, years. It was amazing. I'm going to go back every single week. I never cook roasts (I never cook anything really) so I'd almost forgotten how good they are and with the colder months upon us and my new driving confidence in full swing, I might start going there more often. Darcy enjoyed a children's portion of mac & cheese and it was nice to see her eat so much. I know that's such a mumsy thing to say but honestly, the kid barely eats a thing and I worry. 

Four hours later and we were home, watching the rugby, snoozing, playing. I love time like this. Not doing anything but existing together and sharing time. 



Hazel and I shot a quick Halloween video which will be up on my main channel in a few weeks and they were off home. I'm so grateful they all made the effort to come up. They're a good bunch. 

Darcy is tucked up in bed (man oh man I love having her here. I'm glad to share her with Matt because I know so many Dad's aren't interested in their children but I do struggle when she's not about. I'm away twice this month so that's gonna be tough), Rocket is snuggled up next to me and I'm going to heat up some pasta, put my PJ's on and settle down for Downton Abbey and a Strictly Come Dancing catch up. 

Tomorrow (today for you) I'm uploading a super emotional video about my Mum/pink hair/raising money for Cancer Research so I'm going to spend some time tonight making my JustGiving page look nice. Wish me luck, I'm not that tech-savvy!!!

Toodlepip!

xx

ps- Hazel and I totally did put wedding dresses on. I have mine and my Mother's so I always have two to hand whenever anyone fancies some dressing up. I'm of the opinion that you shouldn't save anything for best and material possessions are to be enjoyed rather than sat gathering dust. So, Hazel and I got our bridal beauty on and flounced about like sparkly princesses and it was glorious. Ha!

pps- Tomorrow (October 6th) I'm going to be in Waterstones Piccadilly answering your questions, having a hang out and getting to know you all. It should be a really fun, chatty, intimate event so if you'd like to come, HERE is the link of blurb and details and HERE is where you can get tickets.  I would really love to see you. x

  1. I loveeee your bed and the copper/rose gold lights! So pretty! I agree, splurging on bedding is an investment, everyone needs a good nights kip and being comfy is the key to that! Lovely photos and I'm glad you spent some time with your friends. Darcy is as a cute as ever, bless her. Have a lovely week, Louise xx

My name is Joy Lopes, I never thought I will smile again, My husband left me with two kids for one year, All effort to bring him back failed I thought I'm not going to see him again not until I met a lady called Jesse who told me about a spell caster called Dr.Miracle, She gave me his email address and mobile number and I contacted him and he assured me that within 48 hours my husband will come back to me, In less than 48 hours my husband came back started begging for forgiveness saying it is the devils work, so I'm still surprise till now about this miracle,i couldn't conceive but as soon as the spell was cast,i became pregnant and gave birth to my third child(Taylor) if you need any assistance from him you can contact him via:Email (MIRACLESPELLHOME@YAHOO.COM),, or you can also contact him through his website http://miraclespellhome.wix.com/dr-miracles,,or call him,,+2348071398555,,,,

  2. This post was extremely cute and got me to smile. :D
    I agree that it's a good thing to have a comfortable bed. After all, you hopefully spend 8 hours in it every day. I once heard somewhere that you should "be mindful of what comes between you and the Earth. Always buy good shoes, tires, and sheets" - so see? The dent in your bank balance is definitely justified.

    I'm enjoying these "diary entires" so far. It's lovely to get a little peak into your everyday life. :)

  16. My bed still isn't where I want it to be, it's just not soft and comfortable enough. And with it getting cold, the duvet I have just isn't warm enough! I miss my bed at my parents, it was as perfect as yours sounds. Sigh...

  35. A broken heart can be one of the most painful things to heal from and can take a very long time to heal. During these times it can feel like the whole world could light up in flames and it still couldn't compare to the pain inside.

    Of course, admitting a broken heart can be a difficult thing to do and most of us try to continue on with life masking the pain in our heart. With this pain comes many emotions. I was also trying to masked my pain, until i found help, here is my story.

    My wife and I separated 4 months ago and our children, Emily and Robert, live with her but see me every weekend. I was totally devastated and confused until a old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet called Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack who help people with their relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contacted him, he helped me cast a spell and within 48hours my wife came back to me and started apologizing, now she has stopped going out with men and she is with me for good and for real. you can Contact on { nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com }. If you are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back your husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend. contact Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack, E-mail:{ Nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com } Thank you so much Sir Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack, i will always be testifying about your good work.

  36. I don't know if you've noticed but some of the adverts on your blog are cutting the left side off on your text. I can't read the first couple of words to the left all the way down the paragraph for the length of the advert e.g. levis. It was on another one I was reading before too!

    1. A broken marriage can be one of the most painful things to heal from and can take a very long time to heal. During these times it can feel like the whole world could light up in flames and it still couldn't compare to the pain inside. My name is Nicole Cottrell form UK, I have been in great bondage for almost 2 years suffering in the hands of a cheating husband, we were happy and leaving well until he meant his old time girl friend and he started dating her outside our marriage before you knew it he stopped caring and taking care of his own family to the extent that he was planning to get married to her and divorce me, i cried and reported him to his family but he never listened to any one but to cut my story short i came in search for a real spell caster who could destroy their relationship and make him come back to me and our 2 kids on my search i saw people making testimony on how their marriage where restored by Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack i pick his email and i narrated my story to him and he agreed to help me and after performing a spell on the second day both of them had a quarrel and he beat his girlfriend up and he came home begging for me and our little kids to forgive him that his eyes are clear now that he will never do any thing that will hurt his family again and promise to be a caring father and never cheat again. I am so happy that i did not loose him to the girl. all appreciation goes to Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack for he is a Great spell caster and to whom this may concern if you have a cheating husband or wife or you need your ex lover back again. you can as well email him on { Nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com }, online love problem solution 100% Guarantee

  39. Ikea also has some great high thread count sheets. I bought them when I moved out and haven't regret it at all. They wash nice, keep soft and are just amazing for an affordable price.

  40. My name is Mr Frank Silver,I live in Mexico,and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago,to the extent that she even packed her things away from me and my kids for almost 5 months,and i tried all my possible best and effort to bring her back,but all to no avail.I discussed it with a very good friend of mine,and he gave me an advice concerning a spell caster,and i quote.“There’s someone who can handle your situation,he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spell casting,i will like you to contact him with his email,which is as follows.”Ekpiku spell temple”. I never believed in spell casting,but he convinced me and i had no choice than to follow his advice,because i never dream of loosing my lovely wife.And that’s how i contacted him with his email address,and i discussed with him and so surprisingly,he told me that I’ll get my wife back a day after.so i never believed,until when i got home,the next day,my wife called me to inform me that she was coming back…..So amazing!! That’s how i got my wife back through spell casting and our relationship was now stronger than how it was before.One of the price i was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this,can always be solved by “Ekpiku spell temple”. So! my advice for you out there is to visit this same website,and tell him your problems too,if you are in any condition related to love issue or getting your ex back,to have a happy family.THANKS.... HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS Ekpikuspelltemple@live.com : CONTACT HIM TODAY VIA THIS EMAIL ADDRESS: Ekpikuspelltemple@live.com AS HIS POWERS ARE SO STRONG AND VERY EFFECTIVE AND HAS NO BAD EFFECT INSTEAD IT HAVE A VERY GOOD RESULT AFTER CASTING THE SPELL. Ekpikuspelltemple@live.com or view his websit http://ekpikuspelltemple.webs.com/

  42. Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
