~ MandaMade ~

Have you noticed Ive changed my blog name from MandaMade to The Vintage Hobby House, sorry if I've confused you ,but I needed to change it,what do you think of my new name ......It just about sums my house up at the moment,the kids and I  made it up ,partly because of this little fellow sitting in front of me and partly because I'm always trying new things to do, and ...Plus I seem to be buying and finding more vintage items,.Sorry again for the confusion

~ Happy Birthday to me ~

Can't believe I will be 43 tomorrow,where is the time going ..I still feel 18,I know I don't look it but hey.
I know some people are very secretive about there age and go to great lengths to hide it ,but yes youve guessed it not me.
When I was younger ,I thought eughh !! to be in your forty's you were ancient ,but I'm only just realising that now I have reached  my 40's I like myself more : I definitely know what I like
I don't suffer fools gladly,I'm happy being me,and I don't make excuses for who I am ,if you don't like me the way I am then tough I'm not going to lose any sleep .

Well  a little deeper than I normally blog but I suppose I am in a sort of reflective mood,also the 2 gasses of  Chianti have made my fingers glide across  the keyboard a little easier  !!! So bottoms up and happy birthday to me x
