dreamy.... Jolly... magical... sunny...kitsch...happy....
My perfect day........ when not working in Betty xx
A walk with my dog and the 3 men in my life xxx
A look round a few charity shops a rummage at a vintage fair...
followed by a good cuppa and a huge slice of cake..... pure bliss
Then I might hop on my rusty vintage bike with the biggest basket you have ever seen......
A sneaky hour or two sitting in my shed looking at the fields reading all the wonderful blogs out there in cyber space.... xxxx just dreamy heaven
In a little cottage by the seaside at Hope Cove xx with my 3 men and our dog 'little sid'... it's where our boys have holidayed since they were tiny x our secret beach x our little bubble x
If I am at home my favourite place is my little shed......... full of all my vintage finds... old photos and postcards... my bunting made by Elsie Sparrow, which always makes me smile. I met her at a vintage fair... I shouted out of the van 'I LOVE your dress and she shouted back carrying a rusty old bike and a chest of drawers I LOVE your van and the rest is history......
My shed is where my imagination runs wild i have at least 10 notepads with doodles and notes on what is next, what I have to do, who I LOVE this week !!
I LOVE ice cream.... good ice cream with chunks in xxxx cannot resist !!!
I cannot resist TEA and CAKE no matter how hard i try, which isnt that hard.....
The driving force behind me is always my Mum, she was strong and very brave......
I am living my life the way she didn't ever manage to do.... we shared the same dreams.... a quirky cottage big enough for two but full to the brim with LOVE and LAUGHTER..... and bits and bobs TUT my hubby calls it..... doing the things that make you smile.... in reality my mum never got this, she was a on-off single mother of 4 kids, she would turn her hand to anything, she had a wicked sense of humour and an honesty like no other......... I am truly thankful to have spent 32 years with such a wonderful women xxx a true gift xxx
My other inspiring peole I share this journey with are my cyber friends, of which I used to be very wary. I am not very technical and a computer scared me... still kinda does but I have made so many friends on those social media sites xx
So many talented quirky souls dreaming the same dream......... LOVE them ALL xxx
To play me would have to be a young Meg Ryan..... my soundtrack would have to be 'THE SHOW BY LENKA xxx
When my mum was ill it became my anthem..... turned up super loud!!!
I would cry and twirl round my kitchen all in one go!!! xx
holding my new puppy that arrived the day I said goodbye to my Mum xx
Oh I am very whimsicle as you may have all noticed but this week I am obsessed with
DOTTIE ANGEL BLOG.......... I just LOVE her !!!!! xxxx
....she is a woman of a certain age brave enough to be doing her thing!!! I LOVE that!!!
