Where on earth did July go? The schools have broken up for the summer, my mum has gone on her annual 6 week jaunt to Canada and we have the pleasure of these adorable beasts until she’s back. They are as soppy as they look and Albert is happiest when his best friends are around.
At the beginning of July, Chris travelled to Mexico to celebrate his sisters wedding. It was really tough being left behind and missing this amazing occasion, but, I was only ever a Facetime call away and I managed to see the ceremony and give my love to the bride and groom which was great. Thank goodness for technology.
Chris came home looking tanned and relaxed, we had a couple of days together at home, catching up over homemade cookies and the ever growing bump, then we headed off to Wales for a week.
We had such a fantastic time, the beaches in North Wales are beautiful and it still feels unspoilt, although we’ve only ever been out of summer holiday time so it might change quite drastically once the beaches are full of kiddos rather than dogs. Albert had the time of his life, I’ve never seen him so happy or so exhausted at the end of each day.
We met up with some friends in Rhosneigr, we ate too much, explored and got sunburnt in 16 degree heat. Well, I did. I had no idea how sensitive my pregnant skin would be.
Oops. Still, it was a great week, and we were sad to come home.
We decided to extend the last weekend as much as possible by having some of the Farslies over for pizza. We have a pizza oven in our back garden which Chris built. He was inspired by something he saw at Glastonbury one year and we’ve had 4 pizza ovens in our gardens over the years.
So, back to work and back to reality. Since our holidays I have taken my wares to another PA event in Leeds. This time with Grant Thornton. It was a really lovely evening meeting lots of new customers. I’ve been asked to go back in November for their Christmas event which will be great.
I’ve also peddled my products in the village. Sunny Bank Mills have taken some of my stock for an interior design pop up shop they are running over the summer. It opens tomorrow and I absolutely can’t wait to see my stuff in a real shop.
Happy Friday folks. We’re looking forward to a wedding this weekend which should be a raucous affair, followed by a couple of trips away, one to Broadstairs Folk Week and then our yearly jaunt to the Edinburgh Festival. Look forward to lots of pics at the end of August.
Take care all x
