Last week, Sweet B and I went to visit one of our favourite places
The 'fairytale' woods
We walked here in June last year, you can read more about it here if you like
It is a truly magical place
I made a little Instagram video for fun too
This place just floors me with its beauty everytime
We took refreshments this time too
and hatched plans to spend a whole lazy picnic~y afternoon here another day
My Father-in-law was taken back into hospital just over a week ago
we have EVERYTHING crossed that he will come home later today
he has had quite an ordeal, poor thing.
The last few weeks have been frantic
with no time to catch our breath
but at the weekend Mr Sweet and I actually got away for the day
a treat for us both
Mr Sweet: The David Bowie exhibition at the V&A museum
(a belated birthday treat from me)
Me: a trip to Liberty
It did us good
A truly lovely day which made us both realise how stressed we have been. ARE.
On the train journey home I was thinking, thinking hard, how to make things calmer
I have felt in such a big muddle lately, balancing far too many balls.
I decided to close my NOTHS shop for a couple of weeks
and sort life
catch up on things, you know?
Yesterday was spent food shopping and finishing and packing orders
and today ..... four and a half hours ironing has been completed
it wasn't all bad, I managed to watch two episodes of Miss Marple
I have a long list of jobs to complete
but it feels good to be getting organised
a step closer to a calmer life perhaps .....
Wishing you all a calm and happy rest of the week
and thank you, as always, for your sweet comments
I truly appreciate each and everyone of them
