A little update!.


 Apologies as I know I have been very quiet on the blogging front. My little girl has been very poorly and we spent most of the weekend in hospital. Thankfully she is on the road to recovery!. I just thought I would do a post with some pictures and let you know what we have been up to over the past few days, as I have a little one to nurse so must be quick!.

There has been lots of activity at the house. My husbands dad has been painting Poppy's room and my dad has been tiling the bathroom. Aren't we lucky to have such lovely pa's!.

I was asked to do the window display for Le salon chic again. If you remember I did one back in December see here The theme was Valentines. Unfortunately as Pops was in hospital I didn't get to help put the display together, but I gave all my props to the girls, and I think you will all agree it looks fabulous!.

As Pops is feeling much better today we decided to plant our strawberry and tomato seeds. They are sitting on the kitchen side just waiting for a sunny day.

Pops favourite medicine has been the Beatles song 'When I'm 64'. We have listened to it on repeat for 3 days! And she now knows nearly all the words. If your feeling a bit low, stick it on!.

 And last but not least I have been putting together a proposal for my book see here I didn't quite realise myself how passionate I felt about the whole thing. And its been so therapeutic after a stressful few days. Definitely a good distraction!.

 I hope you are all well and I will be back to regular posts by the weekend.
