Erm... where did summer go?

I'm not ready for Autumn!

Loads has been going on in our house hold/family so I will try to edit it to a few brief paragraphs.

1. My mum and dad have put their house up for sale and have fallen in love with a house in Norfolk. Mixed emotions on this one, my mum and dad have always been within a 5 minute drive from me and the thought of not just being able to nip in is making me feel rather sad and anxious. Not to mention how much Ella totally dotes on them and will miss them immensely. But on the plus side which is how I normally look at life, they will be moving to Cromer, a place we all love and one where we can go to the seaside any time of the year plus when I do see them it will be quality time that I spend with them. Most importantly of all is how important this is for my mum and dad... it's been a dream for a very long time.

2. The business is going to go into overdrive... We have been selected by Not on the high street to be featured in the Christmas magazine; a whole page. As you can imagine the amount of work has doubled and that is even before the catalogue goes out. I am currently surrounded in every room by stock and this brings me to number 3.

3. Why oh why oh why did I start... I have decided that it was about time that the business come craft room was organised and suitable for my needs. This has now equated to having to move everything out so we can decorate. The list is endless and I have to have it all done by the end of September. Not an easy job. We have stripped all the nasty wallpaper and fixed the sash windows. Now we need to paint everything, the bit I am truly excited about is painting the floor boards white, yes I am rather sad but they are the original Victorian ones so I'm really excited. The whole room will be white :) I can't wait. I have every area planned out in detail so lots of pictures will be coming soon of how we got on.

As you can tell this is why my blogging is still very pathetic to say the least. On a good note I did have a break for a day to do some creative stuff for my mums birthday. I always love to make her some sort of handmade personal gift and these two were just perfect.

I didn't really know where it was going but just went with the flow and I was really pleased with the end results. It was a great success... she cried with happiness:)

Heart filled with lavender from our garden.

I have been intending to write a post for ages but have a to do list that is verging on ridiculous. so I threw caution to the wind and decided instead of editing the photographs for some of my Christmas stock I would do some blogging... I miss it sooo much.

I am currently surrounded by Christmas stock, our Christmas collection this year is about three times the size of normal so as you can imagine it is very mad here.

I hope you are all well, please accept my sincere apologies for the lack of comments on your blog posts, I do keep having a quick peek but will try harder to leave a message.
