So. Much. Cheese || October Diary


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Notice :: Do you live in Tribeca New York? If you do and would like to come and hang out, I'll be at Barnes & Noble on 97 Warren Street from 4pm on Friday October 16th signing my book Life With A Sprinkle Of Glitter and would LOVE to see you! More details HERE

Oh Saturday, you've been good to me. Thank you. 

The day started really beautifully with Darcy being dropped off by Matt and us dashing about running a couple of errands. By 12 noon we were at the station picking up my lovely friend Daniel J Layton Actor (this is the full name that we fully call him by) and we zipped out into the countryside to visit Lamport Hall which was hosting it's annual craft fair. 

(I let Darcy choose a little irredescant silver fairy tree ornament and she was THRILLED to carry it round all day!!)

Now, call me middle aged but I try to go to this every year. There is something so pleasing about being in ye olde surroundings (imagine Downton Abbey, it's like that) and gently moseying round looking at stalls of handmade goodies and sampling fudge and cheese. Oh man, the cheese. We went gaga for it. Sometimes I wanna dance in a club until 3am and flirt mercilessly with hot, tall, brunette men and then sometimes, i want to wear stretchy leggings and say, 'Oh Daniel, there's a table of handmade honey over there!'. Swings and roundabouts folks, swings and roundabouts. 

Darcy enjoyed looking at the owls (whilst I hovered nervously hoping she didn't have her little eyes pecked out) and sharing fish and chips with me. After spending/being conned into spending £15 on olives, we climbed back into the Minimobile and headed back to surburbia. 

After a quick pitstop at the farm shop to buy pumpkins we were home, snuggled up on the sofa with Darcybird to watch Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone. I started reading Darcy the new illustrated book this morning and thought it might be fun for her to watch the film so that as we read, she can understand a little better. I think 4 years old might be a little young for Harry Potter (just the first one, I think they get much older after book 2) but we're gonna take it slow and see how we go. With any luck she'll be hooked and I can relive my Potter love through her. 

So here I am, on my sofa at 6pm with blankets, Darcy, Dan, cheese, olives, crisps, fairy lights and a couple of kitties. I could not be happier! 

Shortly my cousin is swinging by and we'll order pizza and crack open a bottle of something (no cleanse on a Saturday haha) and enjoy the evening. 

This is exactly what I need. No worries, just cosies. I love it. 

Which is your favourite Harry Potter film? 

Toodlepip!

  2. Ooooh would have to be Half Blood Prince! I remember a group of friends and myself went to the opening night at our local cinema and the girl I sat next to decided that she fancied Draco/Tom purely because of his feet in that one scene.. And I was sitting there going "oh hold up, wait in line please!" She's since moved on to love Neville haha :P

    I've been loving these October Diaries! So nice to sit down and read them while I'm getting ready for bed! Em xx

  11. Awhh I really enjoyed reading this! <3 Sounds like the cosiest of evenings and the nicest of days. I love that you go to the craft fair every year - for me it reminds me of the older days when you first started out. It's such a nice family thing to do - and…it means christmas is coming!! I think it's too hard to choose a fave Harry Potter film but I love The Prisoner of Askabam and The Half Blood Prince. Bahh I just love them all. I like the philosophers stone because it's the 'original' :) I feel like your feeling better today Xxx

  21. Hi Louise,
    I recently discovered your blog, and I absolutely adore it now!
    It's always so cosy and warm.
    And about the Harry Potter movie, I think my favourite one is the third one, but I love all of the books, I don't think I could decide myself for one in particular.
    Have a good day!

    If you have just heard about chiropractic care, you may be a little skeptical about visiting a chiropractor. But this form of treatment can make a big difference to those who suffer from different kinds of pain and discomfort. Not only does this type of treatment help to get rid of the pain but it is also a good treatment for your regular well-being.

  30. Words That Make Him Love How to get the girls is always a big deal to most guys. This is why they will do every humiliating and dumb thing possible to attract them. It can be a lot easier for you if you follow these three tips; the great thing is that most guys have no clues about them.

  34. A broken marriage can be one of the most painful things to heal from and can take a very long time to heal. During these times it can feel like the whole world could light up in flames and it still couldn't compare to the pain inside. My name is Nicole Cottrell form UK, I have been in great bondage for almost 2 years suffering in the hands of a cheating husband, we were happy and leaving well until he meant his old time girl friend and he started dating her outside our marriage before you knew it he stopped caring and taking care of his own family to the extent that he was planning to get married to her and divorce me, i cried and reported him to his family but he never listened to any one but to cut my story short i came in search for a real spell caster who could destroy their relationship and make him come back to me and our 2 kids on my search i saw people making testimony on how their marriage where restored by Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack i pick his email and i narrated my story to him and he agreed to help me and after performing a spell on the second day both of them had a quarrel and he beat his girlfriend up and he came home begging for me and our little kids to forgive him that his eyes are clear now that he will never do any thing that will hurt his family again and promise to be a caring father and never cheat again. I am so happy that i did not loose him to the girl. all appreciation goes to Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack for he is a Great spell caster and to whom this may concern if you have a cheating husband or wife or you need your ex lover back again. you can as well email him on { Nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com }, online love problem solution 100% Guarantee
