Stealing Sunday .....

So I have just finished 4 loads of washing, cooked a lazy noodle tea, unpacked from the weekend and sorted 89 emails - oh the joys of no internet for 4 days ..... thought I'd do something a little lighter now.....

Stumbled across this blog some time ago and have been meaning to link up .... so here is my Stealing Sunday....

Natalie was a last minute name mum came up with - I believe she wsatched a Natalie Wood movie the night before I was born. No real nicknames - Nat mostly. I HATE Nattie.
