Feeling Hot Hot Hot…

19 Aug

Goodness gracious it has been a scorcher this weekend…

I have spent most of the time just trying to regulate my temperature and making sure my incredibly milky skin is slathered in SPF15.

Me and Mr B did venture into town on Saturday to watch some of the Worthing Birdman that was taking place. It was packed on the seafront and We ended up in a pretty bad spot and late and so we only managed to see the last person jumping…..well they did quite well and were apparently the furthest that day (I guess we were good luck)

We then went to see the new Pixar film Brave which was lovely the story was pretty amazing and it is a nice change in the usual Disney/Pixar storyline and focuses quite heavily on female characters and mother, daughter relationships. It was a lovely change and the animation and music was especially beautiful.

The other great thing about going to the cinema was also the air con as it was still incredibly warm. The only thing for it was to get home have dinner and then eat some ice cream to cool off and get my favourite picture of me from the weekend:

We then had a horrible nights sleep trying to stay cool, keeping out the covers and trying to keep the windows open enough to let air in but not let the cats out.

Sunday was again a scorcher but the day started amazingly with gorgeous Cat cuddles from my cat Bowski

We then had some yummy lunch and watched the Muppet Movie all in all a perfect weekend.

I really must get back to doing some crafting soon, I am looking to try some ceramic painting so if anyone has given this a go I would love any hints and tips.

Secondhand Love….

5 Jul

I am so excited I’ve been on a search for furniture for the new kitchen/dining/living room or the family room as I’m going to call it for ease and I have been super lucky as I’ve managed to lay my hands on these beauties….

The first is an arm type chair which I fell in love with it needs reupholstering but us Doolallytat girls are always up for a challenge. I need to find some fabric but we decided it can’t be stripy or have a pattern that needs to be matched, to hopefully make the job of reupholstering a little bit easier. I’m also going to rub down the wood and give it a lick of antique white paint.
(Any tips on reupholstering would be greatly received In the comments section)

Next up is my tall plant table which I’m going to use hopefully to put a vase on as a household with cats, I have issues with the little monkeys knocking over vases so I thought getting a tall table which isn’t big enough for the cats to jump onto might just work. (I will let you know how that goes!). I’m going to rub it down and paint it antique white and give it a distressed shabby chic look.

And my favourite this gorgeous glass dresser, I feel a little bad about this one as someone has already painstakingly spent quite a bit of time doing this piece up. Unfortunately I really want the furniture to be antique white so will have to give it a lick of paint but I couldn’t resist the gorgeous glass in this dresser, a great place to store teacups and glasses. I’m also going to have a search for some different handles.

And last but not least these super cute hares too sweet to leave behind!

So with some lovely projects to be getting on with us Doolallytat girls are going to be busy busy busy we will let you know how each project goes.

Due to the rain and wind we haven’t been able to get as many wonderful floral photos as last week but here are a few offerings we did manage to take (and a few that we’re not used from a couple of weeks before!)

Us Doolallytat Girls love our Ipad 2’s makes life so much easier than getting the old laptop out. I love the fact you dont have to wait ages for it to turn on…unlike my laptop. That its nice and light and doesn’t feel like its going to burn a hole in my leg…unlike my laptop, and that the screen is so sharp…unlike my laptop.

The thing im slightly disapointed in is how bad the camera on it is unless you take a photo in full beam daylight I feel the photos have a tendency to look really grainy. I know the new and improved iPad has a nice zingy camera so they must have known the camera wasn’t all that great on the iPad 2, but hey if they didn’t make things better each time who would buy the new one!

I regularly use Snapseed to sharpen up my photos and most of the time what was a not so great a photo turns into something that can sometimes even look quite good. This week I discovered the joy that is Instagram and I’m now I’m back in photo taking mode and have been taking pictures of everything and anything.

So I thought that maybe the Doolallytat Girls would start a new post on a Friday called wait for it…… Photo Friday so without further ado….. Drum roll please for the first Photo Friday…
