    In Store from Today

    Hey Folks,

    How are you all today?  First I must say a huge thank you to everyone who sent well wishes for both Jay and myself last week as we both tried to recover from nasty colds. We really appreciated your kind words and concern and I’m sure it’s why we both feel so much on the mend so Thank YOU.

    I am so happy to be able to share with you our latest new collection Dawn Walker. As the name implies this collection was indeed inspired by my walks. We’ve been so blessed to discover a whole world of wooded walks and gorgeous paths alongside old canals and rivers dating back to Cromwells time and there is no better time to enjoy the serenity and peacefulness of a walk then at Dawn.

    I hope you’ll enjoy using it to create and keep beautiful memories of your own.

    What the Font Friday

    Hey Folks,

    I’ve been hibernating a while since coming down with a major cold. I blame Jay entirely for it. All that running around for his 50th Birthday Bash was hard work. Even I felt exhausted watching it all LOL…. Really though, we have both been under the weather lately. A result of the change in temperatures or something else we don’t know but it kinda took us by surprise and knocked us both for six. So…… while we are recovering, slowly but surely, I am taking things a little easier here too. I know you guys will understand.

    I did promise you some pics of the do but when I came to download them from my phone I was shocked to find I had taken hardly any. I must have been so busy hostessing I just forgot. Here’s a few anyway.

    Jay 50th

    Jay awaiting our guests. Hog Roast Chefs. Jays Birthday Cake.

    Jays Aunt and Mum. Jays Cousin, Brother and Cousins son. Jays bestie mate and Wife. And finally, Jay and his Uncle Mike.

    We had around 30 guests in all including my eldest son Danny with his wife and kids. Everyone enjoyed themselves tremendously and the Hog Roast was a huge success. Danny said it was an EPIC party lol. Jay said it was the perfect way to end his year long 50th Birthday celebrations. I was just glad it all went so well and no one broke my treadmill…. hahahaha.

    Hey Boo,

    What day is it today?

    Why it’s………

    NATIONAL DESSERT DAY – October 14

    0aa

    NATIONAL DESSERT DAY

    October 14 celebrates that wonderful sweet dish that concludes a meal, it is National Dessert Day.

    Desserts can be from a list of many things including cakes, cookies, jello, pastries, ice cream, pies, pudding, candy, fruit and etc..

    Over the years, desserts have changed from natural candies and nuts to complex souffles and multi-layered cakes.  The available ingredients affect the range of desserts that can be made in each region.  The very first desserts required minimal effort or preparation since ancient cultures were more focused on the nutrition in foods in order to survive.  Now, in modern day culture, there are many more options available in desserts.  Ice Cream went from a shaved ice substance with an added flavouring to the dairy based, sweet treat, that today’s children crave.

    Enjoy one of the following “tried and true” dessert recipes and have a Happy National Dessert Day!

    There I was being all organised and pro-active looking on pinterest for some good ideas on how best to clean house when I discovered this list…… I just can’t get over that not only is there a list of jobs to do EVERY day but there are even jobs to do AM and PM…… OMG when do people have time to do anything else??

    3cce014ba36348a966e38a815460a3cb

    It’s no good folks. I can’t allow this to go unchallenged. I must try and fix it so that real live people like you and me can actually have a life that doesn’t revolve around cleaning day and night, 24/7. Here is my revised cleaning schedule. Let me know what you think ;)

  8. Tip Tuesday – Getting Ready for Halloween

    October 7, 2014 by Boo

    tumblr_ms9det6keY1ssqam8o1_250

    Tip Tuesday

    Hey Folks,

    How are you all today? Can you believe its October already? Where did all that time go??? I’m still in a state of shock over it all. Heck, at this rate it will be Christmas before you know it….. eeekkkkk.

    One good thing about it being October already is that all you Halloween fans get to look forward to starting the party season with a candy bang. What fun. Meanwhile, back at Booland it’s time to clean house before Jays big 50th bash. Did I ever tell you I’m not a big fan of housework???

    10269236_525834337522113_751300639182148284_o

    I mean, what’s the point? You no sooner finish it then you gotta start it all over again. What’s that all about??!! And how come (BIG Question here) even though we both work full time, I am the one who gets stuck with the ‘housework‘????  Hhmmmm. There is something not quite right about that little arrangement, wouldn’t you agree? At least I’ve found a neat trick to help me clean house AND do my walking…… Awesome  :)

    Hello October

    New Collection now in Store

    Hey folks,

    How are you all today? Are we getting into the Autumn spirit yet? I am, even though today is chilly, somewhat  grey and damp. I’m loving the autumn feel.

    Earlier today we had a very exciting moment or three when Conrad arrived to discuss the plans for Jays big 50th party next weekend. We are having a Hog Roast. How cool is that  :) . The best thing for me is no washing up afterwards, lol. These guys provide the lot, from food, to dishes to the clean up after. Happy days. I am really looking forward to our little gathering now.

    Meanwhile, back in BooLand (because after all, that is JayLand ) I am thrilled to announce our latest bright new addition to BooLand Collections. Another ‘Labour of Love’, Hello October began life in the woods not too far from my house during one of our Sunday Walks.  You may remember I sooooo did not want to go on that walk lol but I was so glad I did. We even found my dream house tucked away by the canal but thats a story for another day ;)

    Without further ado, here is Hello October
