A Few Snaps of My Antipodean Trip

wanaka1

Lucky me, I temporarily escaped winter and spent the first few weeks of January visiting family and friends in New Zealand.  We had a wonderful time, oh yes. We spent the majority of our time in Wanaka as my brother has recently moved there, along with visits to Raglan, Rotorua, Auckland and a much anticipated first visit to the breathtaking Milford Sound.  We did lots of walking, coffee drinking and wine tasting, which is pretty much my perfect kind of holiday!  The long flight is grim but so, so worth it.  I am back at work and pleased to come back to lots of wedding enquiries – excited for the year ahead!

Having a little break

Just a little note to say that i’m taking next week off, returning Monday 13th July so if you email me I may not immediately respond.  I will be sure to do so on my return.  Have a great week!

 

A Few Snapshots from April & May

Oh my goodness, wedding season is well underway!  My to-do list gives me little thrills of panic/joy every time I look at it but equally I have had time to spend with friends and to get outside and be leisurely!

We visited Kew Gardens on a hot, sunny late-April day and thought our tulips compared favourably with theirs…

I got my first pair of glasses!  Friends of mine, most of whom are specs wearers, know that I have always hankered after a pair of geek chic glasses in spite of my perfect vision. Lucky me, the ageing process means I now need a pair for computer work.  I never could quite bring myself to ‘fake it’ so it was a momentous occasion – I documented it with a selfie that doesn’t quite capture how excited I was….

I’ve been working on some lovely stationery, these two projects were for May weddings.  A bit of brush calligraphy for place cards for a London wedding and the animal drawings were for a dinner table plan and table names.  Can’t wait to show lots of it off after it has been photographed.

It’s rambling season!!  A couple of weeks ago we did a walk in the Kent countryside, from Otford to Eynsford via Shoreham.  It was completely glorious.  You can find details of the walk here.  You can helpfully download the walking guides onto the kindle app on your phone, which was way better than carrying around a book/printed sheets of paper.  This picture is of my husband Steve walking down a hill into the village of Shoreham.  I can’t recommend it enough.
