Hi ladies....well with all the doom & gloom about lately..I thought i may do a blog with a little bit of levity...and some "NICENESS"!!

After having done tennis today i must say i was much MORE tired than usual..(i think it has something to do with not eating anything before i run around like a lunatic for an hour!!)..and AT MY AGE...some food is necessary..

Anyway my 19 yo son is actually celebrating "ONE YEAR" going out with his girlfriend...

SOOO whilst he has been out today...i had a "brain wave" whilst lying on the couch falling asleep!!

I shall do him a "VALENTINES DAY " table at home..

Soo went and bought some chocolates...the vintage oldey worldey type heart sugar lollies..(which are actually for a wedding..but they are heart who cares??).some gorgeous roses..etc etc...AND have put together this little table for when he gets home with his girlfriend.

I shall either be "in the dog house" or he will LOVE it!! MMM we shall see..

Also my mum bought me a pressie yesterday...this gorgous BLACK POODLE tea towel...(i think i may have to have it framed...far too good to use)..

AND this morning there was a delivery from Japan from my other son...and this GORGEOUS CUTE "POODLE IN A TEACUP" was amongst the goodies...

HOW cute is it?? especially as sooty is actually a teacup toy poodle..

maybe small things amuse small minds????

take care..xx andrea (and of usual..the pictures are all out of sequence)...

You're a sweet Mum Andrea!!

I sort of think you're tired from all the emotions of the week, I know I am, the wind today has been aweful, not a nice atmosphere at all today

Now isn't that funny I felt I had to do a little pretting today to, sort of felt a little guilty...but shouldn't really should we??

Wow I thought that was really little Sooty in the tea cup, I thought you'd gone into Photo Shop and did an edit thing...oh my how cute

Take care

Aaaah Andrea it really does look beautiful think your son & his girlfriend are going to LOVE it. I had forgotten about the heart lolloies, have not seen those for years! You have to frame the Teatowel for sure way toooo nice to use.
Your teacup poodle is gorgeous.
Have a great weekend my Sweet Lady.

Ahhh you are so sweet! What a Mum!
And how's all your cute Puppy things....Very you.
Hey with your piccies try using "centre" and large or Medium and see if that makes any changes,When I use Small and "none" for layout option I always end up with a dogs dinner.
And you should be able to click and drag and pull them Up and down...Good luck

I can tell you are a romantic Andrea. Even if your son doesn't appreciate the table setting I bet his girlfriend will.
