A Thank you, an award and a tag

Thank you all so much for your lovely well wishes :) Yes, it was a marriage proposal and we are both very excited!!! I will tell you all more about it in my next post as I have a little bit of "bloggy business" to post about first!!!

First up, I have been the very lucky recipient of these two awards from the lovely Rachel the Krafty Girl who makes the most yummy looking cakes and has an eye for a thrifty bargain or two!


I have also been tagged by Pixiedust to post the 4th picture in the 4th folder of my pc so here you go - an incredibly flattering (not) picture of me supping Guinness on mine and Mr P's recent trip to Dublin. 6 euro a pint for this stuff!!! I nearly fell over in shock when the barman told us the price!!!

As I've been away from blogland for a little while, I have lost track of who has already received these awards and tags, so if you are reading this and you have not already received them, consider yourself awarded / tagged!!!

Thanks for the comments about the cardigan. Congratulations on getting engaged. How exciting. I ran away with my husband - still married after 17 years this year (I'm 41 not 95 by the way!!) Have fun planning everything.

Love Emma xxxxx

Ohooo I am so happy for you, I shall cry I always do at weddings :)

Thank you so much for your lovely comments, I do love craft and I really love pretty things, though wonder if it all becomes somewhat boring for people reading my blog

Thank you for the encouragement Gem X

Well done on the awards and I can't wait to hear about the wedding plans! When I was preparing for mine it was before the internet was so popular (got married in 2001 so most of the preparations were done in 2000) and we would have done it soooo differently if we hadn't had to rely on the local shops! Oh yes and if I wasn't so young and easily bossed around by my mum lol.

Congratulations on your engagement!

Sorry to hear that you and your car had a little accident today but so pleased to hear you're ok. My poor friend fell over and is covered in bruises, I'm so pleased I stayed at home.
