Hello, hope you are all good! It seems like an absolute age since I last posted even though it's probably only a fortnight!
Took last week off and went to visit my mum and dad for a few days who are now living up in Shropshire. We seemed to do quite a lot whilst I was there - lots of little trips out to various places - the garden centre, Ikea...etc which were nice to have a wander about. Also went to several of their local towns, including Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth and just generally pottered around really.
I found these sweet little Easter decorations in Vinegar Hill, one of my favourite shops. I never got around to putting up an Easter tree this year but these shall be perfect for next spring, and they were a bargain at only 30p each!
Mum also treated me to this sweet little Cath Kidston mug - it is the absolute perfect size for a hot drink and I am completely in love with the colours. It goes so well with the enamel CK plate I bought recently too! I have a real thing for pretty pastel kitchenware at the minute.
Unfortunately I didn't really take many photos whilst I was there, despite lugging my camera around with me most of the time, though I did take a few of these greedy geese in Bridgnorth!
We (maybe stupidly) decided to give them some of our leftover sandwiches. It ended with us running away literally as fast as we could with a flock of geese hurtling along behind. Was quite funny but they do scare me a bit - think it's those big beaks!
In fact, this one has a very mean look in his eye doesn't he?! I think he was the ringleader!
Anyway, I also managed to do quite a bit more of my tapestry whilst I was away. I literally hadn't picked it up since Christmas, but I'm pleased with how much I got done... Still got a fair bit to do, but it's getting there!
There is so much detail in it, every time you look there is something else to catch your eye - My favourite parts have to be the little dog and beehive!
Anyway, it was a really nice break, but I now have lots to catch up on. Have been working on Halloween and Christmas projects this week which is always weird at this time of year. I also have a lot of blog reading to catch up on too- hopefully will pop in on you all soon, just don't know where the time goes sometimes!
Have a great week x
