Stop to smell the roses !

They say you should take time to stop and smell the Roses, and every week I aim to but real life somehow gets in the way :)  This week has been so busy what with constant deliveries to the shop of gorgeous new stock, my youngest daughter having her first photographic exhibition ( huge success ) which was a fabulous boost to her confidence, and of course there has been the Jubilee celebration to prepare for........phew, where are those Roses ?

On a serious note I really do think we need to take a little time out to re-charge and appreciate what we have around us, only this morning dashing to the car did I notice that my huge rhododendron had burst into a wall of gorgeous purple glory, well I plan to sit and look at it all day on Sunday well and truly re charging my batteries :)

Lingfield Racing

Whoah ( no pun intended )
Race days make the shop busy, busy, our pub next door and pub oposite are heaving with race fans ( fellas) hanging  out having a lil drinkie before the meeting starts, and the girls of course want to see the shop, and why not ? we girlies know shopping !

Race days really are fab in the village on a sunny day, the atmosphere buzzes with a happy holiday feeling.

Crazy Messy !

Ohhhh the poor little shop was totally wrecked yesterday, a huge delivery caused absolute chaos, hard work but fun !

The end result was lots of new gorgeous stock and that deep exhausted sleep where you know you have worked hard with a fabulous result. My major gripe is polystyrene.......why oh why is there not an alternative that can be recycled, it drives me mad that we can recycle everything but that evil white stuff ( moan over)
