My favourite Childhood Toy




My Favourite things challenge site has come up with another irresistible topic - my fav childhood toys.
I was not a dolly girl, I did have a few barbies (with noses bitten off, thanks little brother, and yes I know i will never let you forget..), my fav doll was a bride doll I got one Christmas. I don't remember getting it but she certainly was a big part of my childhood memories. Mum made some clothes for her and she needed her hair washed so often that it became a bit of an over bleached tangle. Mum tried to resurrect her for my wedding, just for the car but she was beyond help. She is still tucked away somewhere. Wasn't she beautiful??

And I'm guessing I got the nurses dress up that chrismas as well.


This Lo uses mostly Crate Paper, I am so completely addicted to this company and their products...

Our plumber is here digging up our back yard at the moment, he thinks that the long awaited collapse of our pipes has finally occurred. Luckily it is in the far back corner under our unused vege patch so nothing major will be sacrificed. And tomorrow we take the car in for major service/replace front light (again, 5 headlights between two cars in less than 12 months is a bit much to bear!) and finally, hopefully fix our stuck drivers seat.

Could be an expensive week...

have a great day. xx
