Hello Blog!

My first post in blogland!!

I am soooo excited ...
Inspired by the very lovely and helpful Jooles at Sew Sweet Violet I have
decided to have a go. 
I am very nervous -
Have I got anything interesting to say?
Will anyone follow me??
  As the saying goes
'nothing ventured - nothing gained'
I think there is so much to gain.  Already I have discovered tales from a happy house and

Let me introduce you to my family...

This is my dog, Ollie. He is a springer spaniel who is
full of energy, incredibly nosey and very loyal.

I wanted to post a picture of my children (should I use their proper names or
call them Bunny Boy and Bunny Girl?) but
they tend to hide when I point a camera in their direction ..

Bunny Girl is 17 years old and Bunny Boy is 15 on Thursday.

I am married to the lovely Mr B

Well I must go now - lots of marking to do before school tomorrow. Easter holiday starts
on Friday.  Yipppeeeee

Take care lovely people - I hope you have a great week


  1. pleased to meet you...your first post is always a bit daunting! Don't worry about having anything interesting to say...never stopped me!
    Glad you've found Cuckoo - my bbf (best blogging friend!)
    happy easter hols

    1. Oh dear Fee - my first mistake - I commented on my own blog instead of posting a reply back to you!!! So much to learn .... x

  2. Hello Fee - thank you so much for leaving a comment. How exciting. I am still trying to organise my blog but I'm sure I will get there soon!! I am in awe of the many talented bloggers and the wonderful blogs I have discovered. Thank you for making me feel welcome. Happy Easter to you and your family xx

  3. Hi, welcome to blogland - first post done, lots more to follow I hope. Ollie looks great fun and full of mischief. Pop over to my blog sometime, it would be lovely to see you.

    1. Hello Karen. I am beyond excited that you have commented on my blog! I have just tried to share my excitement with Mr B, but he doesn't seem to 'get it'!! Ollie is wonderful, and absolutely full of mischief (rather like the children!). Take care - look forward to keeping in touch xx

  4. Hi - thank you for dropping by my blog! I have had my camera for quite some time now, it's a Sony a330 and is possibly no longer available! I also use 'boost' on iphoto on quite a few images so I guess that's cheating a bit!
    Anyway welcome to the world of blogging, your first post looks great - your lovely dog looks like a natural for the camera!
    Thank you for your kind words about 'B.'
    I look forward to your next post.....
    All best,
    Essie x
