I now declare 2010 the year of fun! (oh, and a bit of advice please)

After a night of magical fun ringing in the New year, Big fella and myself came back home to find the heating had broken. Big fella valiantly proclaimed to have no fear and lifted our mattress into the living room and stuck on tea, toast and of course the electric fire. Cozy!
So on the 1st day of 2010 I wanted it to be all about the fun! We were supposed to go camping this weekend but weather was too bad. Doesn't mean we still can not camp though!

With every chair in the place, a floor brush, a whole lot of string, and of course the ever handy upright hoover, the tent is complete!

All I need now is when big fella comes in from work, for him to sit in the centre to be the middle pole and it will be perfect!

for now, I will wait for big fella to go camping with me and dream of a big white moon glowing through the window!

Goodbye for now!
PS: To ring in the New Year and all in the name of good fun, I was going to go into the unknown and host my first giveaway. Ekkkk! I was going to draw a picture something like these lot, frame it and put it out there for any one who wishes to have it? Good idea? Bad idea? Honest thoughts now! Thanks, and onwards and upwards!

Camping in your living room looks cozy and romantic! I think a giveaway of a piece of your art is a great idea. I'd enter!

All the best in the new year.

Tell Big Fella that he's my hero, and more if he did serve as the middle pole ;)
