You Guessed it was a Wedding Anniversary!!

Thank you everyone for all your lovely comments on my last post, I know it has been a while but it seems to have been a very busy time at the moment.  But you might have guessed that it was a special anniversary for us. So hard to believe but we had a lovely time and if any one wants a special event then I couldn't recommend more where we had ours in the beautiful Combe House Devon Hotel. 

So here is just a few photos of our lovely day.

 Friends and family coming together, there was such joy and fun that day

 My long time very special friend

and of course a very lovely lady my mother who looked amazing.
It was a very special day for the both of us and of course we stayed the night in one of their beautiful rooms. Now it is still busy busy as we are getting ready for a short break to Seville staying in a hotel called Casa Numero 7 we have never been to Spain so this will be a new adventure. I am sorry if I have not been able to visit you lately but hope to catch up with everyone this week. Off to sort out the garden today hopefully the showers will bypass Devon!!!

The Week of Celebrations are just beginning!

I am so going to bore you all - but the week of celebrations have arrived and for my special birthday tommorrow ( I have been allowed it a day early) the OH has bought me a SLR camera, had to show you the photos that I have taken with it already! They are all around the garden have not yet ventured any further but here goes what do you think?

Have you got this far, you will be glad to know there are no more well not untill tomorrow!!! When no doubt I will be practising some more! Hope you all had a lovely weekend ours was a little damp. Celebrated one of our son's birthday with barbeque - spent most of it running indoors to shelter from rain well that's an English summer for you. Look forward to your comments I really love reading them all.

Time Flies

I can't believe that it is nearly 3 weeks since I last wrote my blog, we have had visitors and a lovely time with my Mum & Dad who loved our new home.
I have also been out and about looking for bargains and couldn't believe my luck when I saw this chair in the road in a nearby village, how much do you want for the chair I ask - £5 he said and it was in the back of my car before you could say Jack Robinson (hope I am not the only one that knows that saying) of course I had to investigate further into the shop and found these lanterns for £2 each a real snip and I think they will look very chic with a new coat of paint.

I have also been trawling ebay for a basket and was lucky enough to win this one and I have to say have not stopped using it since it arrived in the post, my Mum said it reminded her of the basket that her Mother used to take shopping every day.

I have also discovered this new magazine,
and can't wait to start on some of the new projects, especially these little purses they are so cute!

The garden is coming on a treat now, and we are enjoying the fruits of our labours - I don't think we have visited the vegetable aisle in the supermarket for a while now, it is lovely to base your meals around what produce you can pick in the morning.

The blues of the lavender and this small thistle flower look perfect together.

I am so sorry that I have not had time to visit all your lovely blogs but promise to do so very soon. Have a lovely week and enjoy the summer weather.
