'It takes a long time to grow young'

January so far has been a whirlwhind of activity and completely overtaken by birthday fun!

To start the month I went to a great party thrown for my uncle Steve, met his bandmates (you may remember my 'meet the band' giveaway from last year), drank a huge amount of wine and generally tried not to die on the way home!

Then, on the 9th it was my birthday. Turning 26 was not my favourite thing in the world- I am sure I was 21 only the other day!! Anyhow I had a fabulous day and received some beautiful flowers and gifts.


I also made a special birthday trip to one of my favourite places in London, the Museum of Childhood. I met the talented James Boast, Emma Block and Phil Hughes and had a great time reliving my youth in Bethnal Green.

Some of my favourite toys in the collections:

I desperately want these kitties in dresses for my room!

I would definitely recommend a trip there if you are in the area. It is, of course, brilliant for kids but also is good fun for adults and a great trip down memory lane. Plus, even if you aren't interested in the collections the gift shop is worth the journey in itself!

So after all that, 26 is turning out ok. I have some exciting things to share on my blog in the next week or so and will be overhauling my sites and shop in the very, very near future! Keep your eyes peeled and let me know if you've visited any good museums or exhibitions of late too.
