My Ragdoll 2O years on

There's nothing better than seeing your kids love something you loved so much as a kid, it's even better when it was the actual one you had as a child.
I got this rag doll when I was around 2 years old and she was a fave of mine, Issy spotted her a little while ago in my room while we was having a girly night with my friend and instantly fell in love with her and named her Ellie :)
It's safely in my wardrobe for now as my girls can be quite distructive and I can imagine her coming back to me with her hat and dress ripped off so for now she's safe and sound in my wardrobe.

Do you have a toy that was once yours that your little ones now love?

Day Twenty Two - An old photo #BEDAoutmumbered

I love looking back at old photos I have so many I need to scan through onto the computer but here's
my first school nursery photo :)
As you can tell I LOVED nursery LOL, I loved the fact my mum went ahead and purchased the photo despite the fact I'm crying to show me in years to come.

Recent eBay bargain buys

I'm sure I've said it enough in many posts now I LOVE a bargain, so these beauties were snapped up.

Coloured plant pots and trays
£2.O9 FREE p+p from china, these little beauties come in 6 different colours.
With holes already in the bottom they are far more practical for flowers than the IKEA ones I have, I don't know if i'll be using these for flowers or if they'll be for my odds and ends like hair bands,pens,make-up brushes etc but I'll definitely be buying more for flowers if these ones aren't used for some.

£7.99 FREE p+p I thought it was from china when I ordered but when it arrived 2 days after purchase and payment, I checked the location when leaving my feedback and its it's from London.
Also available in electric blue, even tho the handle broke on me yesterday (simple fix) a link had slipped out and it's ready to go again :) for £7.99 even if it was an un-fixable break could I really complain?

Day Twenty One - 1O of my favourite blogs #BEDAoutmumbered

In no particular order.....

three - ohsoamelia
six - mytwomums
seven - inmybubble

Day Twenty - Best thing that has happened to me this year #BEDAoutmumbered

Wow, this year seems to have been bad news after bad news so far with everything being health related in both mine and Andy's families. 
The main one that comes to mind is getting an engagement ring after being engaged since March 2O11, it turned up and it just abour fits my big toe so I'm still unable to wear it but I have one.
I didn't want one originally as it was just to 'normal' for me but I suddenly longed for one, I'm not even a jewellery wearer other than piercing jewellery but I suddenly set my heart on one :)
We sat for ages triple checking my measurements and it still arrived massive so it's waiting to be resized.

My autumn/winter essentials

I know it's not officially autumn or winter yet but I don't know about where you are but where I am it's got quite a bit colder and the heating is having to be turned on, the onesie is out and I'm eying up the festive Yankee collections AND the card shops are starting to stock their Christmas ranges.
I'm currently writing out lists of what I need to get in for the girls so here's my autumn/winter essentials....

A good pair of slippers
There's nothing better then slipping your feet into slippers that feel like giant marshmallows/clouds, leaving you with an all round cosy feeling.

A festive scent
There's nothing more cosy then the smell of a festive scent while it's chilly outside, Spiced apple being one of my faves. Yankee candle have a great mixture of festive scents

Snuggly jarmies & dressing gown 
Whats better than getting in from the cold or out of a nice bubble bath into a snuggly pair of jarmies and dressing gown?

A good bobble hat,snood and mittens
I'm quite the big kid when it comes to bobble hats I'm all for big bobbles,tassels and anything crazy.
Last year I supported a fairly adult looking bobble hat but it still had a strawberry on the front :) 
Snoods, snoods, snoods whats not to love?
it's like a permanent hug while your out, My best snood is from primark its so thick and warm 
mittens,gloves,hand warmers whatever it is you prefer because theirs nothing worse than having icicles for fingers!

Bath bombs,bubble bars and bubble bath
This one can be done through out the year but I find the wintery months I get the most use from a bath bomb and bubble bar as it's chilly outside I'll spend a lot longer in a hot bath.
LUSH have amazing dare I say it? Christmas ranges

Wooly socks
Who doesn't love wooly socks? even if it's just to slide around the house like a loon these beauties are a must! 

There's nothing better than doing the school run with snuggly toes and fairly warm shins, I certainly notice the difference when I get home and have thighs that feel like they've just been pulled out of the freezer but the bottoms of my legs feel nice and toasty.

Hand warmers
Poundland have a few different cute designs of hand warmers the one where you snap something inside and it heats them up so I plan to stock up on a few to have in my handbag for the girls and myself if I ever need them, what amazing inventions!

This one goes without saying a good Umbrella.
Of course if I can avoid going out in the rain then I will but sometimes it's unavoidable (school runs, appointments etc) Your going to need a good umbrella I don't actually own one and I don't own a coat with a hood either.
I'm scared of grown up umbrellas but I'm looking at getting a dome one in hope it won't go turning inside out on me.

Do you have a must have/essential for the autumn and winter months that I've missed?
