Oh how these weeks whizz by but each one comes with plenty to make me smile and for that I'm very thankful. I have had a couple of quiet weeks with few customers calling by on me for sewing so on Tuesday morning I set up the May special offer on my Facebook page a few days early so that mum's could check out the old school uniforms during the Easter holidays ....my special offer is for 10% off any School Memory bears ordered up til the end of May to help reduce the mad last minute rush at the end of the school year. Since then I've been inundated with work...
- A Bridesmaid's dress needing taking in and shortening
- A posh dress needed for another Wedding needed taking in.
- A lace tablecloth needed making
- and 9 Memory bears! but only 6 of those are school bears!
It never fails to make me smile that I can go for weeks with nothing at all and then withing a couple of days I can be so busy....and I love it.
My photos that have made me smile....
The twins had a day at the seaside at the weekend and I just love this photo of them heading towards the sea together.
Steve enjoyed another football training day this week and didn't even mind that he got absolutely soaked during the day.....he was on his way home here for a warm bath!
Just look at Lulu's face! She was at a birthday party over the weekend and was brave enough to hold a tarantula.....I'm so proud of her because I have a real fear of any spiders so wouldn't have gone anywhere near.
Wednesday evening we had a visit from Amy and the children and this is how they rolled up on the drive! They are sat in the back of their new camper van with a video on the telly and all wearing earphones....I think they rather like their new wheels don't you?
Just a few of the latest treasures in our garden for you including the pic of the strawberries now in bloom....such a lot of promise of things to come eh?
These two photos made me chuckle. They should be labelled 'what a difference a day makes'. We had a really heavy rainstorm on Wednesday and it not only knocked all the blooms down on the bottom picture but if you look closely you will see that in the top picture it knocked all the blooms off the tulips in the top picture leaving us just stalks!!''
This photo makes me smile because we have a pansy flower that has self seeded in a crack in the side of our garden path and as you can see it's fighting with a dandelion plant....I think that weeding out the dandelion will probably disturb the pansy so I've left them to fight it out....who do you think will win?
Isn't nature wonderful?
That's all from me for today. Please leave me a little comment and, if you can, then link up to your own smiles with Mr Linky below. I hope your week is filled with smiles like mine.
