Looking forward to the holidays

Hello everyone! It's been a little while since my last post, and oh I have to say I have missed it! Lets just say we have been going through a bit of difficult situation at home at the moment, and I haven't been able to find the motivation or words for cheery blogging, but hopefully all of it will be resolved shortly and we will be able to start the summer holidays full of the joys of summer (if it ever stops raining here!) and a spring in our step. I have so loved reading all of your blogs though, seeing what you have all been up to, it really brightens my day.

I have to show you just a couple of things though! We had a lovely shopping trip to John Lewis on Saturday. There was a sale on! A lovely red polka dot tablecloth was purchased (I'll show you this in situ soon!), lots of lovely yarns and ribbons in the haberdashery department,
a beautiful mozzerella and tomato salad for lunch (their food hall is sooooo good!), and a few bargains in the clothes department!

And look at these, cut from the garden. Don't you just love the vividness of this lily.

And these sweet peas, carefully arranged by my beautiful girl - I wish you could smell them!

Look at that - the sun is coming out at last outside, and theres some patchy blue sky. I think I'll go and do a bit of mindless pottering this afternoon, snipping and deadheading and enjoy all the lovely new growth brought on by the rain (and probably weeds, but I think I'll try and ignore those till next week!)


  1. Pretty inspiring post, looking at all those lush yarns and fabrics! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Hi Sally,

    I LOVE John Lewis :-)

    Sorry to hear you've not been feeling great, hopefully your motivation will be back soon!

  3. Sally ~ I'm sorry to hear things have been a bit yucky for you ~ a little bit of retail therapy is always good though! I love that Lily, the colour is fantastic, they are by far my favourite flowers and they always smell gorgeous too :O)
