Looking forward to sitting and stitching again by the fire later.
We went to Shepton Mallet to the three day event at the weekend and had a lovely look about and did some truffling. I had a little list and it was really enjoyable.
We had a coffee with our lovely friends Liz and Jack who were both stalling there. Liz is of The Washerwoman fame and Jack sells gorgeous linens, both French and Eastern European and is of Le Camionnette Bleue fame ...
It is always lovely to catch up with them even if at times it is when they are working. I do then of course get to truffle around all their gorgeous stock so it has its advantages...
The weekends seem to just fly by do they not, one moment it is Friday night and I am waiting for my husband to come home and sit and have a drink by the fire and tell me about his day and then we discuss our weekend ahead of us and the next its loud ringing in our ears with the alarm and its dawn and the birds are singing for their breakfast and my husband is doing it all again. We are both so busy and our weekends are very important to us.
The vintage fair season starts very very soon where there is at least one or two each weekend and we try and go to most of them. I am lucky that my husband gets me and actually likes coming along and doing some man truffling himself for tools and such. He also loves the social aspect of them and catching up and staying over with friends. I am very much looking forward to the Summer months ahead.
Our gardener who is working so hard on our garden has been planting out for me and the end of the season last year pruned back and we can now see the fruits of his labour coming through.
We will put in some bedding plants around the newly padded out garden and there are some gorgeous shrubs been put in and I see my lupins, foxgloves and daisies are all shooting up as well.
Miss Muddy beak has had her fill and the magpies have been allowed to come down to feed along with Mr Robin Redbreast, it has quieted down out there and peace has been restored. She has hoped onto the grass and has started second breakfast of mealy worms and ground up peanuts ... I think she is getting ready to nest.
Well that is it for today and I hope you all have a great day I am off to start a very busy day, but first I must go drink my coffee that has just been made for me. I will be back here tomorrow and as always Happy Stitching! XX
