I’m leaving on a… train/plane!

Well, it looks like Miss. Bobbins is about to jet off on her holibobs – in other words, it’s vacation time!

Tomorrow, we shall be taking the train down to old Londinium, where I shall get to see my first classical concert since I was eight – at the Royal Albert Hall no less! I am incredibly excited. 😀

We’ll then be jetting off to the apparently beautiful garden isle of Madeira – obviously I had to choose a destination that was a name of a cake!

So, this is really just to say that there will be no posts for the next week or so but then I’ll be back – with a VLOG! (Assuming I can get around any technical issues of course!)

As I can’t be away from Wifi for too many hours, I’m sure I’ll be checking in on the rest of you and perusing your posts whilst I sit in the sunshine. And I doubt I’ll be able to contain my excitement from Twitter when I’ve been to the concert. So have a lovely week and I’ll see you when I get back and the Bobbins will have turned ONE!! Where does the time go?

Tatty bye for now… 🙂

Announcing a future announcement… AGAIN!

Announcing a future announcement… AGAIN!

Just a quick reminder everyone – If you want to ask me a random question such as what my favourite childhood shoes were or which literary figure would I boast about the blog to, you’ll have to think of something else because they’ve been taken!! Don’t know what I’m on about? Well, what’s new! Read on… 😉

The reason for this ‘save the date’ type announcement is, well, would you believe it…Aloada Bobbins turns ONE YEAR OLD next month!! How on earth did I manage it?! 😀

Naturally, I want to celebrate this minor achievement (which for my infinitely faddy tendencies is a major accomplishment!) but I was wondering what to do.

Announcing a future announcement

Announcing a future announcement

Hey everyone. 🙂

So, this should have gone out yesterday but we had a bit of a family emergency when my G-Pa (i.e. grand daddy Bobbins) was taken into hospital suddenly. He’s okay (ish) but we’ve had a bit of a battle on with the NHS and whilst they are fabulous on the one hand, at the moment they clearly couldn’t organise a viral outbreak in a petri dish. But hey-ho.

Anywho, the reason for this ‘save the date’ type announcement is, well, would you believe it…Aloada Bobbins turns ONE YEAR OLD next month!! How on earth did I manage it?! 😀

Aloada Bobbins has a good hair day!

Also known as ‘having a re-vamp’!

I got bored with the old look so I’ve played around with colours, fonts and headers for the last couple of hours. Everything has synergy now (Facebook and Twitter have the same design), because ‘they’ tell me that’s a good thing!

Hope you like it, let me know what you think! 🙂
