My Princess day

Didn't she (we all know who I'm talking about) look gorgeous?! I can't believe I actually watched the wedding.....I wasn't going to buy into all the hooplah, but I did and I thought it was beautiful! I had the kids in bed, got into my comfy corner of the couch, took a sip of wine and then Charlie woke up! Oh well.

I thought I would share with you a couple of pics from our wedding day....way back in 2004.

The above is my all time favorite shot. I adore the cathedral in our home town and was lucky to be married there.

Gorgeous Baby Girl

I just LOVE this nursery from Grace Hilton Interior Design (which I first noticed on Buy Modern Baby) designed for her daughter.

Beautiful soft blue/green paint with pops of colour, but my favourite thing are the bookcases! What a fantastic feature of the room!

For all the details, pop by Grace's blog here.

1. Alimrose Soldier Rattle
2. Double Decker Tin Toy Bus
3. Soldier Skittles
4. Keep Calm & Carry On
5. This is London Book
6. Brittish Bulldog Cushion
7. Union Jack Cushion

Tally Ho people!

Gender Neutral Nurseries

My brother and his lovely wife are expecting their first baby in October (yay, I am going to be an Aunt!!!) and last night the little devil of a brother put on his facebook that he had seen some gender neutral designs at the baby shop and was just going to copy those for bubs nursery! Can you guess what I told him?!

So just for them (and anyone else who is reading and is looking for gender neutral inspiration) I quickly rustled up the below images and think I might be doing regular spots on gender neutral to give him (I know Mrs C, aka lovely wife, regularly checks out my blog) some ideas!!

The check of him!

I love the serene look of this nursery. Obviously blue has been added in, but could easily be subsisted for pinks and look just as gorgeous.

Loving the wall colour on this one. Again, a great colour to add any other colour for accessories.

Lovely and simple

Hmmm I must have a thing for this colour (walls) at the moment, it just goes with anything. This nursery has been featured alot over different blogs and I do love the pops of extra colour.

I can't remember where from though!

Love me some zebra rug!

So there you have it Mr C, a starting point for you....

On another note, we finally have our Internet sorted! Can you believe the mobile tower in our area is in need of an update and they aren't doing it until July/August! No wonder we had trouble, so we were able to get out of the contract and onto another that actually works.

Hope you all had a lovely Easter and ANZAC long weekend.

Grrrrr....Angry Red on the war path today! Since having Charles, I have felt so inspired to blog and work. Unfortunately my Internet provider has had other ideas! Some days I have reallllly slow connection, other days I have NONE at all. It's been 'normal' only about twice. We've rang and rang and rang and have gotten no further The Red (aka Me - Matt calls me that when I get fired up) is making more calls today. They don't seem to understand that I have a business to run and limited time (given that I now also contend with 2 under 2 - and one of them being sick). I really wish they wouldn't outsource assistance to other countries....I just don't think they get it.

OK, rant over. Just wanted to let it out really and let you know that I am here (barely) sometimes and am hoping to get back into it all once I have a decent internet connection! And now that I do seem to have one today, I've gone and wasted this post on a rant instead of nursery inspiration!

Are you questioning why I have the above image? Well that's the era I feel like I am living in at the moment dealing with internet dramas!
PS I have just read that back and I sound like a mad woman!
