* 14 / 2012 *

I've been sitting here for about the past half hour just not knowing what to say ... a complete and utter blog block, it's happening more and more lately, maybe it's an age thing?

So a couple of days ago my favourite hessian shopper bag got a hole in, it's a good few years old and was a freebie from good old Nescafe coffee. You know when you used to save up the labels and then send off for goodies maybe you still can I'm not sure to be honest.
It was used a lot and I just had to find a replacement so I went on a shopper hunt and found these ' Good Bags'.

I had to bribe the boys with a biscuit to be models!!




I ordered them on Saturday and they arrived today and I'm very impressed, they seem very strong and well worth the money .




I bought myself  the knitting one, if you hadn't already guessed and what with Mothers Day not being too far away I bought the 'nana' and 'granny' as presents from the boys. You seriously should pop across and check out their site as the prices are also very very reasonable.


I also saw this little one and thought that maybe one of you guys might like it as a little pressie . It was my four years blogging anniversary back in January and lately I've been totally pants at leaving comments so it's also a sort of apology . All you have to do is leave a comment and maybe suggest some of your favourite blogs for me to read before midnight Saturday and I'll choose a winner on Sunday.

I'd also just like to thank everyone for the lovely comments on my last post they meant a lot.... thank you.

Your boys make great models. It's hard to know where to start with regard to visiting blogs - there are so many interesting blogs out there. I tend to visit the needlework (cross stitch) blogs the most - one of my favourites is Blacksheeps bit of the Web where Edgar in San Fransisco posts Monday to Friday about a mix of things.
