Please pass the blue pencil!

With this many colours to choose from (500 to be precise) - budding artists will be spoilt for choice. They are available by monthly subscription of 25 a month for 20 months from Social Designer and I think they look great displayed by themselves for those who prefer to buy their art rather than create it!

Meet the family

Every year we try to go away on a big extended family getaway. It tends to be over the Easter weekend and therefore is a choc lovers delight. Last years holiday was a little different to previous years as Oliver was only 3 weeks old. Needless to say we were a little tired but it was lovely to introduce Oliver to a lot of the family.

The accommodation was fantastic as it was made up of 3 cottages which meant that only my sister and Liam had to hear Oliver's cries at night as they drew the short straw to share one of the cottages with us.

There were 18 of us in total from 4 generations with ages ranging from 3 weeks to 88 years.

The week was spent catching up, going on walks and generally relaxing... for those without a 3 week old baby that is!

Since I mentioned chocolate - I was a little sad to see the British institution Cadbury has been sold today. I just hope the chocolate still tastes as good on the next Easter holiday.
