Really must post more often!

Hallo lovelies!
I can't believe I leave things so long before I blog- time just runs away with me these days it seems!
But here I am again with things to share with you so that is good!
Life round here has been crazy busy lately.  In September I celebrated my 40th birthday - I was amazingly blessed! My hubby took me away for the weekend before my actual birthday, to a beautiful hotel in Worcestershire. We spent a lovely afternoon having ice cream by the canal, I bought a funky pair of red boots and we had a great meal out in the evening. The next day was spent in Stratford Upon Avon before returning to pick up the kids from our amazing neighbours round the corner who had looked after them for the weekend! Thank you, great friends!

Mustn't forget my funky boots!!

I spent my actual birthday with my best friend, Emily having lunch and a mooch around a butterfly Farm/ Garden Centre near Swindon and she blessed me so much with her generosity of heart in the birthday gifts she gave me!!! (We were so busy having a lovely time that I forgot to take a photo of enjoying ourselves!!)
My celebrating was topped off with a shopping trip to Cardiff  a week later with my church besties and a meal out with some of  my school mum friends!
I feel truly blessed to have such wonderful friends to share this journey of life with! Love you all ladies! xox

Since then I have been progressing with my painting and getting work ready for a Christian Art Festival in Cheltenham next year as well as being accepted as one of the artists selling work in a newly opened Arts and Craft shop in Cheltenham! The shop opened last Tuesday and I am excited to see where this will take me! 

My space in the new shop!

Art work aside, we also have two new additions to the family as my daughter asked for some guinea pigs for her birthday this year!  So we are all getting used to the little fellows being a part of our family! I can truly say that life is full! Full, but good!

Well cooking tea calls so I shall say bye for now!  Will try not to leave it too long before my next post!
