I hope you had a happy Easter!!!


As is usually the case during the school holidays, I've been far too busy with Little Miss P to be on line! I have to admit I've been playing a lot of Animal Crossing on the Wii too O.O!!!

I hope to catch up with my blog reading soon ^-^!

Did you know it's Cuckoo day today? Well apparently so!

I had a look online to see if I could find anything to link cuckoos and dolls and here's what I came up with ^-^!

A Russian folk-lore custom of Cuckoo doll funerals! I jest not, and it's quite fascinating ^-^!


And there's always the swinging dolls on cuckoo clocks ^-^!

When I was little I had a list of things I would like to have in my house when I grew up. They were:

A round window,
An attic
A cellar
A log fire
A four-poster bed
A Stable Door
Russian Nesting Dolls
A Rocking Horse
And a Cuckoo clock (as well as a grandfather clock)!

I do have some Russian Nesting dolls... =D

  1. Who knew there was a Cuckoo Clock Day!
    I'm with you though, I love them and also thought I'd have one when I grew up! :D

  2. I really wanted to have a house whose windows had panes like those in tudor houses. I called them "diamond windows". Also, wanted a library. I do have a lot of books, though! ;)

  3. I wanted an attic, log fireplace, upstairs, lots of children, and a grandfather clock. I have or had all of those but not the grandfather clock.
