Fairytales do come true

Wow what a day yesterday was!

The biggest event of the year went without a hitch and I enjoyed every moment of it. 

We arrived at Warrick Castle at 10am with our picnic and bubbly, picked our spot, layed out picnic blankets and settled down for the next few hours. 

They had a massive screen to watch all the footage and balloons, flags and even crowns being handed out curtsy of heart fm. It's been a long time since I've seen so many people celebrating such an event. We all sang to the hymns, stood to sing the national anthem and cheered the "I do". Of course the bubbly was opened too.

Later we explored the grounds. Enjoying the peacock garden as they displayed their feathers for us.

Found hidden treasures.

Were taught how to fight with our weapons! (keep it clean folks!)

Even the toilets made us smile!

Enjoyed the great halls.

Ate yummy ice creams and waffles.
(whilst pulling silly faces)

And even ventured into the dungeons.

What a great experience that was. We screamed like little girls and giggled as a poor guy called Dave kept getting picked on to be tortured!

I even got put in the dock! 
My crime? 
Being from the West Midlands! 
What cheek!

It truly was a fantastic day, one that I enjoyed with my little princesses and my daughters friend.

I hope your day was one that you will treasure the memory of too.

Domestic Goddess, However did they know!

The normal post I recieve is bills, bills and more bills!

But today this arrived on my doorstep,

A very cute and accurate statement.

All in aid of breast cancer care.

Strawberry Tea 2011 Header final

A great cause and this is whats it's for;

A Strawberry Tea is a sweet idea for summer. You invite your friends, family or colleagues to a tea party, picnic, or other occasion where you all get to enjoy delicious treats, and in return they make a donation to Breast Cancer Care.
It can be as simple or grand as you want. You could pop a packet of fancy biscuits on a plate at work or open your garden up to an afternoon party of home baked cakes, fun games and a raffle. It’s all for a good cause – helping us support the 50,000 people who are diagnosed with breast cancer every year.


caller in confidence about any questions or worries they
may have, for as long as they need, about breast health
or breast cancer.
pays for our expert Helpline team to talk with a


cancer with a trained volunteer who has had a similar
experience to them. We know how much reassurance
and encouragement people can get from talking to someone
who has been there, so we take care to find the best match
we can for each individual.
pays to connect someone going through breast


health workshops in their community. We give them the skills
and confidence to promote breast awareness, covering
signs, symptoms and risks and promoting the importance
of early detection and breast screening.
pays for us to train a health worker to run breast

So don your pinnys and get baking.

What better reason to enjoy cake?

Oh and don't forget my invite!

Below are just a few examples of what

Lost in the post!

I don't know about you but I am pretty sure that my invitation to the wedding of the year has well and truly gotten lost in the post!

But I'm not bitter, much!

I can remember watching the royal wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles as young girl.

It was such a fairytale to watch, such a shame it ended so tragically.

As for this wedding well I am taking my girls to Warrick Castle and we shall be watching it on a big screen whilst enjoying a few glasses of bubbly.

So like the royals I am praying for clear sunny skys.

Will you be watching the wedding?
Or just enjoying an extra day off?

A carpet of Blue Bells

What a lovely weekend it has been.

Not only was it an extra long weekend (whats not to love?) but the weather has been beautiful!

We have had a few adventures over the past few days so I thought I might share a few pictures. 

Our first adventure saw us completing another 6 mile walk across the Malvern's.

It was such a lovely day, with such beautiful views.

I adore the carved signs you pass along the way.

But the best sight of all was the carpet of blue bells.

It was like s river running down the side of the hill.

Excuse the outfit!

Even the cows were enjoying themselves.

British  camp looked stunning.

I always adore this cute bench that you pass as you finish the walk.

Even as we drove away the blue bells waved us goodbye.

A lovely walk that lifted the spirits.
