• Who – Me again
• What – Just got out of the shower
• When – 6.47am
• Where – my kitchen
• Why – because it has the brightest lights to take a photo that early in the morning and has a shelf that I can rest the camera on to take a self portrait.

The challenge this week:"The sketch is easy - i just thought that it would be an extra challenge for everybody to find a image that is more horizontal rather than the vertical images. We are curious what you come up with and what stamps you have. Since the sketch does not indicate were the sentiment or embellishments have to be, you can let your creativity go loose :-)"
I bought a new Penny Black stamp which isn't particularly Christmassy but I have added some glitter etc and used DCWV Christmas Stack papers.
The sketch is this:
And my card is:
Not posh frocks but I treated myself to some new pyjamas today – my other ones are all a bit big now and I wake up with the trousers halfway down my legs. These were on offer in La Senza on buy one get one free. So I had a sexy silky pair and a lovely warm brushed cotton ones (pink with sheep on ;-) – which aren’t so sexy!!!!

Well this is an easy one. Our corporate is a bee and as part of our re-fit and re-launch we have had it redesigned slightly – he is a bit more hairier now. This huge bee is over the front entrance of the garden centre.

Our Christmas department opened at the end of September and this is the animated display that greets the customers when they enter the front doors.

The English dictum that a man's home is his refuge/ his home.
Not my castle but one of Zoë’s favourite toys – her Weebles Wobble Castle.
Oh to be a child again and have no cares or worries other than when you can have more sweeties and you can quite happily live in a make believe land!

Do you have a side of you personality that wishes to be a little more daring or eccentric?
I am always envious of those that are little eccentric. I always associate eccentric or daring people as artistic and creative and these are traits that I would love to have. I would love to have their quirky dress sense – somehow they always look good in whatever they wear and I just know that I would look hideous in the same outfit.
I am not sure that I would want to be daring. Since I have had Zoe my life has gone nice and quiet and I like it that. I don’t miss doing all the things that I used to do. I am quite happy to be at home watching TV or doing my crafting. As a working mum I don’t have the energy left at the end of the day to be daring and I certainly don’t have the figure for a pink bikini – angora or not!!!!

Today we have been out today with my mum and brother down to Poole Quay and although I was feeling rubbish, I still had a lovely time.
I saw this pink Harley motorbike and thought how perfect it was for the pink prompts for the week. The photo doesn’t show it very well, but the paint work had a glittery effect to it – my type of bike.

We have been to Moors Valley Country park with some friends from nursery today and she had great fun playing in the park. As usual I took hundreds of photos and I think this one has to be my favourite and it just so happens to fit the prompt for today too.

I have struggled a bit to get a photograph as there isn’t much left in the garden in flower. As I walked down the path and looked up at our rambling rose, right up high, there was a bud about to bloom. I managed to bend the stalk down enough to grab a photo of it against the late afternoon blue sky – most unusual for mid October.

Do you have a pink word?
Anna further explained this prompt as a word that gives us inspiration and hope. I am not sure that makes it any clearer for me. I think my pink word would be LOVE.
The love of my family and friends certainly inspires me and gives me hope.

My oldest friend is Tina who I was recently Matron of Honour for. We both moved into a new estate – I was 9 and she was 8 and we were next door neighbours. We soon became best friends. We don’t see each other very much nowadays but when we are together, it is like we have never been apart. As my oldest friend she was the most obvious choice to be Zoë’s Godmother.
