(I will let you know what mine looks like near Christmas)It seems a while since I wrote my blog but the time seems to be going so quickly and I seem to be so busy – although what at I don’t know. I had a lovely morning at the Vintage Fair at Pamphill and it was lovely meeting fellow bloggers especially Cecile from Elegance Maison – who I am sorry I couldn’t stay longer to talk (and she was very busy which is good). We have also had birthdays in the family and we have visited our new addition Ottis at my son’s Olivers home he is so good and cute and Oliver is finding him such good company. And here he is
I would just like to thank all the people that have visited my blog I really love hearing from you and now I am going to catch up and read all your posts.
