Yesterday afternoon was delightful! It was spent with Dee . Sometime ago I joined a button swap. When I read the list of partners I couldn't have been more pleased. Dee only lives three quarters of an hour away in Taunton. We were due to meet Saturday, but it was postponed so a few emails later we arranged to meet yesterday. Alex and I enjoyed a lovely lunch and natter about 'retro' and years gone by, we all seem to have the same interests.

Except I had an embarrassing moment, but I didn't realise this until I got ready for bed. I had left some of her gifts behind, there they were on the bed where I had left them staring back at me! Have you ever looked at something and you know there is something wrong but you cannot put your finger on please Dee please forgive me.


Despite all my recent moaning about blogger. I have started a new blog! I had been thinking of starting one for a while so here it is!


  1. I like you new blog Julie - I've duly 'signed up' to follow! x

  2. It was so lovely to meet you yesterday and your hubby. I loved my parcel it was lovely thank you so much again. Glad you liked your things to ;-)) Love your new blog i have signed up to that to look forward to seeing your new posts. Take care and enjoy the rest of your week, dee xxx

  3. Gret idea for a new blog. I've become a follower!

  4. Just saw your comment on Dollytub Cottage about not being able to leave comments ... I had same problem till I tried this .... when the sign in screen pops up uncheck the remember me/stay signed in box. Give it a try it may work for you too x

  5. Just catching up with my bloggy friends. I've read through your posts that I missed. Re condensed milk - years ago, I found a recipe for a Lemon Meringue pie using condensed milk. Never having made it before, I decided to try it before anyone came home for tea. It was soooo yummy that I ate the lot and threw away all the evidence! Maybe I wouldn't have been so sick if I'd only eaten one piece! SueXXX

  6. What a great swap parcel you got Julie! How lucky to be partnered up with someone living so close to you!
    Thank you for your tip for my typewriter!

  7. Hi Julie,
    Just had a look at the new blog - great! I'll keep peeking.
    Yes we did go into Minehead for a look around. We thought it was a lovely town and were very tempted to try out the steam train but just didn't have the time. Pity we missed you !


Please leave a comment. I love reading them and I read every single one!
