    Welcome home! I too am loving my blogging buddies – a bit of a recurring theme here, don’t you think?! I’m a big fan of these Taking Stock posts, and I love the original Annie – we recorded it, so I’m going to watch it and sing along of course, today! Those photography backdrops are so ace, aren’t they? I would love a few more for my collection!

    Welcome home lovely! I too am loving my new blogging buddies ;). The worst thing about returning home from holidays is all the washing…. the very worst! We have a little mr 5 who comes into our bed every night. One of us ends up in his bed. I used to get so cross about it but now I think of the cuddles and that he won’t be in our bed for ever. x
