Well! It's been an exciting week in the Kitschen! We tidied up - a bit (we have our limitations!)
We baked Lemon Cake,
and lovely Niki came to visit with her equally lovely family! OH! It was so fantastic so see her! We think it's been over 30 years so safe to say that the conversation was a bit different to the last time we were together! She is every bit as lovely and beautiful as I remembered! AND she brought gifts! As if getting a good look through her fantastic new book (highly recommended as it's so packed with inspiration!) were not treasure enough, I also received all these...
I feel so spoiled! The fabrics are already finding uses for themselves and the violets have made themselves at home with Dorothy Dog in the workroom!
But even better than all of this, Niki very kindly ensured that my little violet seller is no longer holding an empty basket! So very kind! It was lovely to be able to grab an afternoon together but it went so quickly!
Next we had all the mayhem of Halloween! And then, as is the way of these things, at the end of the two week holiday, the beautiful boy was up all night with a soaring temperature!
I should mind more and for him I do mind, a bit. But a big part of me loves the excuse to snuggle on the sofa under a blanket and catch up on UKTV History channel whilst eating Toffee cake! Bliss. I've even had time for a play on Flickr and was amazed to find there is no group for Aga fans!So I started my own! Take a peek!
Hope you're all having a bug free weekend before the holidays end! t.x
