Life is a little up and down at the moment, it's been a week since our girls were taken from our garden and I'm still finding it hard to come to terms with the loss, I miss their clucking and scratching around and generally making a mess of Mr. H's lawn, I miss them getting under my feet when I'm hanging out the washing and the garden seems so empty without them. We desperately want to get some more but are so afraid that the scummy little sods will return, I don't think I could bear it, the whole experience has left me feeling very vulnerable at the moment and I can't seem to shake off the feeling.
I have been keeping myself busy at work which has helped and I'm busy at home preparing for Mary's Marvellous Vintage and Craft Market this weekend. It's a fabulous fair full of beautiful things and I always enjoy being part of it.
I haven't had time to make anything for this fair as I have been so busy at work ( In the space of a year I have gone from working 12 hours a week to 25) but I have lots of lovely vintagey bits and bobs to take along.
I'm hoping to sell these, Iv'e had them over a year now and never worn them so it's time to part company.
Ive also sorted through a few bits of embroidery I acquired when I worked at the convent. I have kept quite a lot and I plan to finish them but there were so many that I know I will never get around to doing them all.My lovely friend Little Adele will be popping down in the afternoon so I'm sure we will make time for tea and cake and a good catch up.
Mr. H will be collecting something very exciting later today that we spotted last weekend at Elsecar Antique Centre , it needs a little T.L.C but it had our name written all over it so a fiver deposit sealed the deal along with a promise to return Friday to collect it.
You may remember in my last post I mentioned The button Tin and the fabulous day I spent there, well I haven't forgotten I just haven't got around to uploading the photos yet but I promise it will be worth the wait.... I just hope my snaps will do the place justice.
speaking of snaps I must apologise for the lack / quality of photos, blogger is not satisfied with buggering up my settings it's now decided it won't upload my pics in the usual way..........AAARRRGGGHHHHHH!
I'm also hoping there will be a TAH DAH coming up very soon, Iv'e been a busy bee threading in ends on my granny square camper van blanket but just as I was getting close to finishing I ran out of wool so in the mean time Iv'e been using up scraps and making coat hanger jackets, the perfect project now the nights are drawing in.
Hopefully I will be back very soon with lots of pictures and feeling slightly more cheery.
