Starting with Family...
Mum is in Farnborough Hospital with a Fractured spine.
I cannot talk about all the problems we are going through.
So will move swiftly on to Family again.
This little Fellow is not alone!!!
His Family is growing.
This was a bargain beyond belief.
A beautiful glazed display cabinet.
I have found a great little barn near West Malling in Kent which is full of antiques, bits and bobs of all sorts and all so reasonably priced, which makes a change!
Next day it arrived at my house. It was smelly and needing some tlc.
After much washing and polishing, I filled it with some clutter as Mr N would call it.
The paint finish is crackle glaze and distressed, a little like me in the mornings!
I bought this pretty blouse last year.
I have not worn it yet because I found it hard to match well with anything due to the big frill around the bottom.
So I cut off the frill and have sewn it onto an old petticoat.
To wear under this skirt.
The clothes that are in the shops this winter are gorgeous.
I was always a Biba fan and remember 'only just' her shop with its black decor and dramatic displays.
I loved all her clothes and make-up.
Black nail varnish and dark eye shadows.
Something that I had booked many weeks ago.
A Fab weekend away with special Friends.
Time for us all to Flop then Feel re-Freshed!
We arrived at The Grove Farm in Suffolk and was taken by the lovely Stephanie to our cottage.
Leaving the car we entered this outbuilding.
We walked through this farm building where washing machines were kept, cycle helmets and jars of Honey for sale.
We were shown into our cottage which is the door on the left.
Wasting no time at all, I lit the fire and put the kettle on while Mr N brought all our bags in.
No point in renting a beautiful cottage like this and then going out to eat.
I had prepared two meals at home and brought them along with drinks, nibbles and lots of candles!
We planned to go our during the day and spend our evenings by the fire.
So it was a good old English Chicken Casserole for us on Friday evening and Mexican Hot Chilli on Saturday evening followed by probably too much wine but lots of fun and laughter.
I want one! do you think I could fit one in a vintage caravan?
sorry for the slightly Fuzzy image.
Mr N doing what he never gets to do at home all thanks to Carol's on-going DIY!
Up the stairs we go.
To one of the two delightful bedrooms.
This is the other end of the room, so room for one more.
Roomy shower room with a view of both the garden and into our bedroom!
I did draw the curtains!
Vintage cooker, like me, small and strong and gets the job done!
Thanks to the camera timer a group photo.
Moi, Detective Superintendent Pil, who was our Hero this weekend.
He got a text on Sunday morning to say his team had caught
The Night Stalker!
His beautiful Wife Chris, Super Teacher of our year and Mr N
Always My Special Hero whatever he does!
So it's Goodbye From Us.
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend too and well ahead with Christmas Lists!
