The silly season is well & truly upon as and my inbox is exploding with invites, offers, goodies and give-away’s  which would explain the sudden explosion of give-away’s on my blog, I hope you’re all enjoying them. ‘Tis the season to be jolly after all and nothing gives me more pleasure than passing on some of the jolly good goodies to you!

So far I’ve had give-away’s from Heart & Soul photography, Very Bella make up kit from Prima Toys and my favourite book of the year – Rainfall. Still to come, this week, I’ve got a romantic evening… Bringing Back The Mmm sponsored by Lay’s Deli, an online Keedo shopping voucher, craft kits from Ellie Crate & even a little something from iStore… squee!

My blog is starting to look more like an advent calendar than a blog and I hope you are enjoying the give-away’s as much as I’m enjoying giving them!

In other news from the home front, we are up to our ears in party preparations for Ava’s 4th birthday party! One minute I had a tiny baby and now I have a VERY cheeky almost 4 year old! Where has the time gone? Silly Santa Ava
