Proud Mamma

I know that we have a million reasons to be proud of our children, I am at this moment especially Proud of my Daughter Hollee,  (aka,  baby bird as she was the last to leave the nest ) she is in the process of organising her very first photographic exhibition which is lovely as her work is stunning ( even if she sometimes needs convincing)

She takes the photo's at the Shop and other businesses with great results, so having gone from bringing home things made of loo roll tubes and cornflake boxes she is now becoming an artist in her own right.

Wishing you ther very best of everything my gorgeous girlie.

Social Media

Having decided that I am going to keep up to this social media malarky I am beginning to think it could become a full time job.......time management needed here !  I even saw a guy in the gym last night updating on Twitter, true !

Is this healthy I ask myself ?  well it must be, a billion people seem to be spending every second of everyday, checking, blogging, tweeting, pinning etc etc.

I even saw an article that said 80% of people check facebook upon waking, well it's as much as I can do to find the kettle let alone see what my friends have been up to while I sleep :)  all in all I still have mixed feelings, but here I am again ranting into anyone out there ha ha, nope ? oh well back to the kettle.  Love n Hugz  x

Gardening ( or not )

Seriously, what is this weather like ?  I have the best intentions this year to get the garden into better shape and grow something we can eat, all this has been prompted by a very organised friend who proudly told me she never buys salad in the Summer !  Sounds great me thinks, and I start the process with 5 hanging Tomato plants in a rather grim looking hanging container, which I am assured by the packaging has been designed perfectly for my needs :) WELL !  nobody told me we would have frost on the same night that they were planted, and they are no more........RIP little Tomato plants, not one to give up I shall attempt it again when the weather cheers up a little :) Pansies look nice though ha ha.

The shop has had yet another window change, not that it needed it, I just enjoy doing it, it's like playing with a Wendy House and seems to have become a bit of a talking point in our little Village which is nice, I seriously do have the VERY best customers who are not afraid to voice their opinions, fortunately for me they are all good !

About 3 Years ago a friend of mine spent many hours talking about blogging, she typed with passion, made friends through other peoples blogs and even met up with a few, now, being the practical soul that I am I thought she was nuts ( sorry hun x) three years on I find myself spending time reading peoples blogs, admiring how they have decorated, transformed run down houses into gorgeous cosy homes, many are kind enough to share tips and hints, lots of gorgeous before and after pics, and the trials and tribulations of the journey.
Who is nuts ? clearly me, I started a blog for the shop some 3 years ago, on the advise of my internet addicted friend, dabbled a lil bit with it and never really gave it a chance, as the idea of typing away to myself seemed barking :)  that said, I talk to myself of a regular basis so why not ?

I will  (attempt) to give this another shot, and hopefully this time I will keep up to it :)
