I want it ..... free!

There is an American show on at the moment called Extreme Couponing where these very organised people collect coupons and got up to 99% of their purchases FREE!
needless to say this is driving me crazy since our beloved country has no equivalent... if it did, i would be a champion couponer and save a fortune in grocery bills
so now i spend any moment of computer time entering competitions online and via sms
i really NEED to get something for free!
i don't know why, i just do

views from our window
 now i'm no photographer, and our camera is a lovely but simple one so my pics are always just "hit or miss" but i thought to share them anyway...
i love all the shades of blue and grey
when it storms ~ it really storms!
 sunrise over the ocean is so strange to me... i'm used to sundowners on the beach, so it's very bright, very early but lovely all the same
and it's pretty cool at night too... pics are so wobbly they might hurt your eyes!!

have no idea why i don't have beautiful sunshiny day pictures (we have lots of those too) I'll make a plan to catch some of them...
do you like the view?

a real live princess

so beautiful!

 and here is a little something I made to wear on the big day, wore it with my favorite ruffled white shirt from Top Shop and my real pearl necklace and earrings, still had to run around after the boys and could only catch glimpses but it was awesome none the less...
