A bit of a tidy up.

I haven't got much to post to be honest since last time as life here has been really hectic. Running backwards and forwards to sports days, concerts and parent evenings has left me with little time to be productive.
We had a surprise visit from my sister and her boyfriend though yesterday and so Matthew was put on BBQ duty. We had a lovely time sitting in the sun and had a long awaited chat amongst some of my newly planted flowers.
This morning was time for me to get organised. After all if I am to start my own business in the not so distant future I really should start now. I have been counting cups, saucers, tea plates, cake stands, teapots, coffee pots, etc etc and then put them all into a spreadsheet so I know where I am.
I also tidied my sewing shelf and reorganised all of my magazines. Here is an example of what I have been up to:
I feel much better now I am not sitting amongst a pile of paper, fabric and other bits and bobs.
Right - I must be off now. Just over an hour to prepare the nibbles, make the Pimm's and settle down with my family to watch a very tense and nerve wracking football match - now I wonder who that might be??



  1. I absolutely love the cabinet you keep your fabric in, it's just gorgeous! You seem very organized! Enjoy the pimms in the sunshine! Tamzin X

  2. Me too! That cabinet is beautiful reminds me of the cabinets from the old department stores where they kep the handkerchiefs and stockings! Yes I am that old!
