It's been a busy time...
I have left my job, ready to start a new chapter of my life in September, when I start at university. I was thoroughly spoilt on leaving and moved to tears at the generosity and warm words of encouragement from my colleagues.
There was a beautiful greeny-white orchid, which adds a serenity to my bedroom now that's it's too hot in my conservatory.
There were the brightest sunflowers, which add a splash of colour to the fireplace in my kitchen.
And, lucky, lucky me, I got an £80 Borders gift card! Perfect for fuelling my book addiction! Did I mention a chocolate fudge cake? No? There was...and it went before I had a chance to photograph it!
To prove I haven't been slacking in other areas, I made this crochet heart for my friend to carry at her wedding yesterday.
I adjusted the pattern that Attic 24 used for her crochet heart bunting slightly, as I wanted a slightly longer, not-so-fat-heart and I used the gorgeous Debbie Bliss silk that I bought a while back on my ill-fated trip into town.
It was a beautiful day - a new beginning for my dearest friend, who I have known all my life. I felt strangely emotional (who doesn't at weddings?) and laughed and cried with her and her wonderful family. Her parents are my Godparents, and it is a role they have always taken seriously and I am a better person for that.
On the table favours, my friend added a little dragonfly pin badge to mine and No2's name tags, in memory of Tom. I was moved to tears by her thoughtfulness and had to make an emergency dash to my room to reapply my mascara...
This is what made the day complete:
Blue sky! About time too...
I fear I may be slacking a bit more over the next few weeks, both in posting here and getting round to my usual copious amount of visiting Blogland, but I'll be back, have no fear!!!
I may have mentioned this before, but the formatting is wrong, all wrong and it drives me crazy - any tips, anyone?
