Ooooh first proper post on my new proper blog........x

What say you about the new look blog? And the name? Well Telling tales was already taken on Blogspot, so I referred back to a name I had been using over the past four years ( for a while I made cakes and cupcakes....) So now we are Florence and Rose. Both are middle names for my bumblebee's and is familiar for me to use. Do tell me what you think! I can't tell you how happy I am with it. To finally have it looking how I have been dreaming it to be - is fab!

I am thinking about New Year resolutions. There are plenty of things I need to do, want to try, make an effort with, but just how realistic does a resolution need to be????
I am a terrible time keeper. I am not quite sure what happens, I do try it's not that I don't. It's my thing. But I do think it is quite an unrealistic goal to set myself........when there are things like, make do and mend more, recycle more, be healthier ( just by typing this I feel better already )....and on and on......ho hum.

The "panchry" is starting to look less like we have been on a supermarket sweep and dumped all naughty foods inside, and a more slim line...less bulging version is appearing.....Gosh did we eat over the Christmas hols, well we all did.....didn't we?! I have to admit that I DID give the chickens a few biccies and crispies just to get rid.
So......fancy looking at my new treasure? Mr.Q did a great job this Christmas, I feel a very lucky girl. And I can honestly say that I had no idea ( which makes a change, usually I am far worse than the kiddies...far far worse  )....I love it. My new phone....most people want an iphone or a LOVE this...

It does make us all jump out of our skins every time it rings....but she's beautiful.

More loves included a new Emma Bridgewater mug, tray, canister, new C.K mug, bag and these lovely bits.

But the best part for us was having Mr.Q about for 10 days. His break was long overdue, and I THINK he had enjoyed it...I hope?! This morning was our first back to school. We actually arrived on time, dressed, with appropriate bags and stuffs....bit of a shocker though, having to get out of the house on time again.................give it a week and reading books will be read at breakfast, musical instruments will be forgotten, and slippers will be worn on the school drop
