A busy but lovely week.
I don't seem to have found much time for blogging this week. I hate saying how busy I have been all the time because almost everyone I know is busy too and I certainly don't think I am the busiest of busy people BUT I do seem to have been fairly up to my eyes in it just lately. I am lucky though as I really, absolutely, honestly love having lots of different things to do. Even so, it was good to stop yesterday morning for tea and cakes with a friend I haven't seen for a long, long time and her lovely husband. Actually, the photo is a bit of a farce as I completely forgot to use our tea cosy! There were cakes aplenty though and scones, jam and cream to help them along (all freshly baked before the school run I might add, just prior to a frantic cleaning session as the reality of our hovel hit me...groan).
Such a lovely morning of catching up and next week brings the chance for a meet up with another couple of dear friends: Gorgeous Ginny and Dear Diana - hurray! We are planning a picnic (hopefully) with children and Walter Dog who no doubt will be spoiled rotten. Oh, and Mr Davey is planning to join us (be warned). Can't wait.
The garden is also being squeezed in where I can. I raced out to mow lawns after a sewing of orders session yesterday afternoon to find this...
How beautiful are these scarlet poppies? I have been waiting, waiting for them to start the dance, but they have stayed in the wings, not quite ready to spread their skirts in the cruel winds blustering the rest of the garden to pieces. The sun shone for a little while and suddenly the scarlet silk shimmered and rustled and lit the garden with its beauty. Wouldn't you just love to own a dress like this?
As beautiful inside as out, which is as clothes should be and yet so rarely are.
Other good things happening just now:
1. Davey was visited by Ofsted and got Outstanding...Again!!! How proud are we? VERY! x
2. We are going out on Saturday to a party...woohoo! Haven't been out for an age and will be required to get dressed up and wear lovely thing such as these dearly loved shoes which haven't had their chance to dance for far too long.
3. The sewing room has been working overtime - well, with a little help from me - as I have had orders flowing in...again, woohoo! pipany is now stocked in a number of stores throughout the country and orders from my website have been increasing too. This is all due to a huge amount of work on my part, but it is truly paying off now and I am so thrilled. So, on that note I think I will go make Lucy's packed lunch, get Isabella dressed and ....probably eat a brownie!
Have a lovely day x
