don't you just love having fresh flowers in the house..

have had these in the kitchen all weekend making me smile every time I see them.. They've inspired me to clean and bake and as a result I've finally woken up feeling a little more like my old self.. I've been very poorly for the last 2 weeks and, as always, we've been crazy busy at work so haven't managed to take any time off to recover - hey ho!  our weekend was lush and finally started to get my little garden finished off with some slate gravel - underestimated how much we needed so have only got half of it done - but I'm liking it so far.. what do you think.. in a year or two it will be so grass bushy that you won't be able to see it but for now I think it looks ok..

This week is going to be just as crazy and we've got the added excitement of a weekend in Bath to look forward to.. so must get on! Hope you're all well and I'll be back with a few catch ups, hopefully this week.. still have lot's on back log to blog about! see you soon x

  2. I love the effect fresh flowers have on me too :) Hope your busy week goes smoothly!

  3. Sorry to hear you've been so poorly! Hope you feel better soon. The garden looks lovely - making me wish I had more room in mine for something other than pots! Xx

  4. I have some white roses strewn across a multitude of vases in my house at the moment - a gift to myself. Yes indeed - fresh flowers are the worlds best house guests!
