It has been one of those periods in your life when you don't know if you are coming and going. Work has been busy, Ann and I are looking at another new venture for our shop and are busy making arangements for that and my mother is currently laid up in hospital after having a knee replacement which means trips back and forwards to the hospital.
Mind you it was not all fraught there were some nice periods my eldest daugher and I went to Birmingham on Friday to have her final fitting and pick up her wedding dress, the big day is fast approaching. Hubby came with us as he was needed to carry it to the station and I am sure that there was a tear in his eye when he saw her standing there, mind you that could have been due to the fact that it weighs a ton and he was going to have to carry it with his bad back....
chatting, eating and of course drinking wine.
We also went to a car boot on Saturday but it was very big and far too hot and we were defeated after getting only half way round and could not wait to get back into the car to put on the air con. Mind you in the time we were there I managed to pick up some new items for the shop.
Here it is in pride of place over the fire place in the kitchen. It is called "The Tug of War" and shows an old grand dad playing tug of war with his grandchildren.
I found a pair of Victorian cherub spill vases and a pretty little Victorian milk glass jug with a girls head on it.
The shelves are just what Annie and I are looking to go on the wall of our new ventrue so had to have these together with another couple of jugs.
So as you can see even though I may not have done the jobs around the house that needed doing it was a weekend well spent.
