Sorry not to have updated my blog for so long. I have been blog hopping and leaving comments, just didn't feel up to doing my own blog. I had what I thought was the winter blues where all I wanted to do was sleep,Mr PL insisted I went to the doctor (I'm not very good at doing this) , turns out it wasn't so much the blues as a virus :S Anyway I slept most of the weekend and now feel much better.
Anyway, firstly, Hi to those who have joined my site recently, nice to meet you :) Thank you also for all the nice comments you've all left :)
Also a big thank you to Mary Ann over at http://mytategallery.blogspot.co.uk/I won her my blog giveaway. ! I'm looking forward to trying out some of the things in the book. More to come on that at a later date I hope :)
I've not been entirely uncrafty although I didn't feel up to embroidering. I worked out a pattern for a tea cosy, I just need to decorate it now :)
On the minus side, I broke one of my dinner service bowls :( I have the Johnson Bros. Eternal Beau collection. Yes I know it's a bit .... twee .... but I've loved it since it came out in the 80s but couldn't afford it then). I mentioned this in passing to Mr PL and he found that there's lots of it on ebay now, so he got me the set! I've always loved what the Scots call 'High Tea' where you have sandwiches and cakes with a pot of tea. Being half English I add in scones, jam and clotted cream. :D I love laying out all the china and making it all pretty :)
So that's been me for the past few weeks, I'm so glad I joined theGrow Your Own Blog at http://vicki-2bagsfull.blogspot.co.uk/ it's allowed me to meet so many nice new people, thank you so much Vicki for organising it :)
