When life gives you lemons..

Today was a day of feeling like life had given me lemons.

And, as the good old saying goes.. "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade". 

Really love these art prints I found on Google..

So anyway, I did. And I really enjoyed it, it made my day that little bit better.

Some of it happened to get consumed before I even got to take the photograph. I knew there was a reason I kept this bottle, I love old fashioned bottles and labels (not that you can actually see the label here..)

It gave me a taste for making drinks, now I want to make Ginger Beer, but reading recipes online with warnings of releasing the gas frequently to avoid exploding bottles.. I think I might give it a miss until I have a shed where I could keep the bottles. The last thing I need in my kitchen is exploding bottles of pop! 

I'm sure I could find some other recipes to try though. Have any of you lovelies ever made your own drinks? 

Hope you're enjoying your weekends, and that life hasn't given you any lemons lately - unless you want to make lemonade of course :)

Jubilee Giveaway Winner :)

Thank you to all the lovely people who commented on my blog to enter my giveaway.

To pick a winner I just put the numbers into a random number generator to I'd want everyone to win, and could never decide for myself.

There were 15 lovely comments, unfortunately only 14 I could count as due to the postage costs I can only post to the UK (really sorry about that! I do really appreciate everyone who took the time to comment). 

And the winner is...

Thank you once again to everyone who took the time to comment on my blog. I've discovered lots of lovely new blogs to read in the process :)

Jubilee Weekend

So, did everyone enjoy the long weekend? I'm very pleased to say that I wasn't at work :)

And I was lucky enough to go away for it. I got to visit one of my favourite places..

(big lovely panoramic shot)

(I love standing here and just watching the water)

I also got to go to a street party..

Take some photographs of some beautiful creatures...

(This was so cute! The little lamb was wagging its tail so much whilst feeding)

And even better, I got to treat myself to some lovely things..

(I love when things get wrapped in tissue paper, I think it makes them more special. I might just be odd though!)

So, the above turned into these beautiful things..

Which made for a VERY happy Hannah :)

I hope you all had a lovely time yesterday, whatever it is you did. 

And dont forget, there is still plenty of time to enter my Jubilee Giveaway!

Hello any lovely blog readers of mine out there.

Is everyone enjoying the Jubilee weekend? I am. I meant to post this before now, but it's the first time I've had access properly to a computer for a few days, so now it is.

And, since I'm at a Jubilee street party tomorrow, I thought it was a good time to post about my Jubilee Giveaway.

Anyway, enough rambling on. Here is what my giveaway is..

There is :

- Diamond Jubilee Keyring
- Some Old Fashioned British Sweets
- A Keep Calm and Carry On Notebook

- Union Jack Brooch
- A Beside The Sea Tea Towel
- A Union Jack Nail File (which you cant really see, as I didn't realise I hadn't angled it right, but it is there!)
- Handmade Lavender Jubilee/London Inspired Heart

To enter my giveaway, all you need to do is comment on this blog post and either leave an email address or be logged in via your blog so that I can message the winner.

Unfortunately, due to postage costs.. I would only be able to post to the UK. (Just incase there are any lovely people from abroad reading - sorry!)

If you know anyone that would like to be part of this giveaway, please let them know.

I'm not asking for people to follow me, but if you are here, and would like to.. then please do, the more the merrier! :)
