I need some men in my life....

I've just realised that all the blogs I read apart from one are written by women. I'm not sure whether this is just because I tend to follow blogs about craft and sewing and kids so they tend to be written by women or whether women tend to blog more then men? Maybe there are hundreds of interesting male blogs out there but they are all about cars and gadgets and football (things that don't particularly interest me) so I never come accross them. Anyway I've decided I need some men in my life so if anyone knows of any interesting or funny male blogs send them my way!!

A big thank you to my friend Debi (the one I met in Tescos) for the gorgeous friendship bag she has made for my mums birthday.

There are a few variations on this theme I know but Debi's included
  • A candle to see you through the darkest night
  • a paperclip to keep it all together
  • a plaster to help wounded feelings
  • a rubber band - a reminder to stay flexible
  • a cotton ball to cushion the rough road ahead
  • a safety pin for the unexpected
  • a marble to replace any you have lost
  • five pence so you'll never be broke
  • a flower to remind you to stop and look at the flowers
All wrapped up in a cute little organza bag. Its a really lovely thoughtful present to add to the growing pile for my mums 70th birthday. Thanks Debi.
