Perfect Weekend

Thank you for all your best wishes for Saturday's Vintage & Handmade Fair which although I had a lot of fun chatting and giggling with Rose wasn't as successful as my last visit but I did sell 1 candle this time!

That evening I joined Ben for dinner and X Factor - what are your thoughts on this years show? 
I can't believe they put Goldie through!


Sunday the girls got together


My SIL & niece popped round to catch up and Violet was happily crawling over the place - it's amazing what  catches children's eyes and they want to play with, in Violet's case it was my bin!

There was another visit from another friend who is feeling the weight of her pregnancy and then I tackled a job I've been putting off for about a year... finally painting my bedroom wall!


You can see how I've been living with it here

A nice weekend all round and I'm not back to work till tomorrow so hopefully there'll be a few more jobs crossed off the list!

Pin It Now!

  1. Can't believe that woman actually entered x factor never mind her getting through!!! Aaawww Violet is gorgeous and that's just like kids give them a box or a bin and they're amused for hours. Shame about the candles they'll all wish they's bought them at christmas and you can always pop one in your families stockings, Lucey x

  2. Ah sorry to hear the fair wasn't a huge sucess. I think people are holding on to their pennies a little bit more at the moment aren't they?
    I don't watch X Factor, but I am in love with that little cutie Violet!!! So adorable.
    love

  8. I am sorry to read that the fair was not successful. People are just not spending much at the moment unfortunately. Times have changed...I am self employed and am having to spend more hours working but not earning as much as before.
    I don't watch x-factor so can't comment there. I only watch 2 things at the moment, Downton and Great bake. The rest I record and watch when I can.
    I love the colour of paint that you have chosen!
