Hello Everyone, do come in - it is so lovely to see you. Have a seat and make yourself at home while I pop the kettle on.
It has been a disappointing weekend due to difficult circumstances beyond my control. We all like to think that we can plan our life out according to what we want but when we love people then our plans sometimes have to be sidestepped to meet the needs of others. I had planned to visit the Vintage Show at Morecambe today which was being hosted by the fabulous Wayne Hemingway and the wonderful art deco hotel there, the Midland. I was so excited everyone as there was so much going on today including a huge vintage sale, vintage vehicles, shows and dances. They were also running classes all day so I had planned to get there extra specially early to make sure I didn't miss a second.
However, life had other plans for me and sadly someone so special to me became quite poorly on Friday morning so I had to cancel everything. Things are stable now thank goodness but obviously I had to put the show on the back burner and forget about it. It was difficult though I must admit and feel very bad about it as I realise how deeply selfish I can be sometimes.
My special love encouraged me to have a few hours off this afternoon so I went for a little jaunt into Chester and found a little treasure to show you. It is not vintage but it caught my eye in the window and I found it very appealing. I hope you like it, have a look.
He is so cute isn't he?
I went into the shop and bought him and was shocked when the shopkeeper bought out a flat pack. I immediately panicked thinking about glue, screws and hammers..........'Is it difficult to put together?', the shopkeeper smiled. He told me that a 3 year old could fit it together. I nodded, thinking I have heard that one before..............
When I got home I unpacked it carefully and looked at the instructions, oh dear, here we go again.......me and flatpacks do not go together lovely Folks.
But, I was wrong. You simply pressed out all the pieces carefully and then inserted the pieces into one another securing with a tiny band of rubber. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy! I couldn't believe how easy it was - I finished it in 10 minutes flat everyone, how wonderful.
Here is the little birdie - have to find a name for him or her - any ideas? Little birdie will sit very nicely with my bird cages - I am getting quite a lot of birdies to look after now.
Now just a little update on my Sophie dolly - she is coming along well thanks to my special man - have to get some blue paint now for her eyes. She has to be ready for next week as I am hopefully going to meet Sophie Tilley at her workshop - so thrilled to be doing this so need to take Sophie along to meet her. Do you think Sophie is a good name for her? I love her and can't wait to see her finished and dressed.
Well lovely Folks I have to leave now as I have work to prepare for next week. It has been a bit of a funny weekend so far, not the best but in life we have to be prepared for the ups and downs. I hope you are all enjoying a fabulous weekend wherever you are. Thank you so much for dropping by, what would I do without you all. Lots of love as always, Dorothy :-)xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
