all the best laid plans.......


I had a delicious post all mapped out for you today - but the week got away from me .........

I have been zipping around covering for sick staff at work (why do people have to be sick when others are on holiday......ahhh!!)  
Attempting to covering my own work (well giving it a go anyway - sort of just shifting one pile of paper to another......)
Trying to bring the house into some sort of order after my half hearted attempts at decorating (this is similar to the paper shifting - just moving one pile of stuff to another room)
Needing to go to the stores for groceries (.....when she got there the cupboard was bare!)
The rather pressing need for clean (& iron clothes) etc .....etc.... etc....

You all know ...... we all have weeks like that ....... so instead of my planned post I thought I'd show you where my head is at most of my time this week.........

it's dreaming of paradise!!!!



I could be lying in the sand ........ dreaming and staring at palm trees..... (not looking for that second sock......)


or walking on a white sandy beach...........waves lapping at my feet............(why don't we just close the shop and start again next week.....)

Pinterest is a wonderful place to go and dream........


now where did I put the iron??

Have a great weekend & see you next week

P.s. here's my recipe for lime cocktail.....if you can't get to paradise this little bit of sunshine heaven can come to you......

3 measures of White Rum
2 measures of Lime Juice
1 measure white sugar
Club soda (or reduce the sugar & add Tonic water if you prefer)
loads of lime wedges and ice
fresh mint leaves if your being posh........

In a jug mix together the rum, lime juice and sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Fill a tall glass with a mix of the lime wedges and ice cubes. Pour over the Rum mix and add mint leaves if desired then top up with the club soda or tonic water - sit back, close your eyes, dream & drink - try not to spill it on your chin it spoils the effect!
