All those piccies make the reds look really orange but they are a darker red than that! They also got me some fairy lights that have little shades with red and white polka dots, and red flowers. Just trying to decide where in my living room to put them - as the lead isnt very long.
Since then I have bought lots of clothes and also treated myself to some more pretties for the living room from The Range.......
I added a bit of beige to the red and white scheme, to warm it up for the winter
I do love The Range, and dont mind spending some of my birthday pennies in there, when all this lot came to a grand total of £27!!! Bargain!
Now the other bit of celebrating............you may remember that I told you that my daughter was taking the dreaded Kent Test?! Well........
She passed!! We were so relieved and proud of her! We have already put in her choices for the grammar school she would like to go to - and her first choice is the same one as her brother goes to, so she is pretty much guaranteed a place there. Fingers crossed anyway, but we dont find out till next March!
Another reason to celebrate is because Bluewater is now going to start hosting some of the big exhibitions!! They have a new conference/events centre and are already advertising shows for next January - April. I have already booked tickets for the Stitch and Hobbycraft Show and am waiting for tickets to go on sale for the BBC Good food show they are hosting. They are also having a wedding show and a vitality show - and I am waiting for more to be released for later in the year!! Whoopie - and it is only about 30 mins drive from me!!
Enough celebrations for one post!
