Wellies, berries, an armchair and a nest ............x

Hold on to your cup of tea ( Green? Grey? Builders? Coffee????? ) ....this could be a long one. There's so much to catch up on,
Where to start?
Ok, thoughts gathered. Laptop on ...errrrr lap, feet snuggly curled to the side, cushions in comfy positions ( too many and I start wiggling uncomfortably like a bored child, not enough and my bottom goes numb. )
Tis the season for wellies and warm cardigans, it's amazing just a few weeks ago we went on the same walk, though this time, even the bumblebee's noticed all the changes. Those slight little things that move us on into Autumn. The chill in the air, the fields being harvested, dappled fading sunlight, berries ripening, wild flowers drying.
Ooooooooooh it's so nice to kick off the wellies, pop the kettle on and snuggled down on returning.
So, dog owners. I was literally driving myself crazy...crazy ... crazy ....crazy, Our lovely, but smelly and hairy ( P.S whatever happened to seasonal hair shedding in dogs? You know the summer coat, then the winter coat???? It's all frigging year round in this house ) dog dog Seth is such a tinker. You've all seen Marley and Me? THAT is our dog. It really is. These days though he's more chilled and enjoys constant Nanna naps in the sunshine.....IN OUR ARMCHAIRS!!!!!!!
I'm not a freaky house cleaner, but I do like a clean house. And one that does not smell. Of dog. At.All.
The armchairs smelt, they were gross and I felt humiliated everytime friends came round. I would wince when they sat in the chair.....light a scented candle and give them biscuit after biscuit.......
Am I boring you? I'm sure you imagined a far more interesting catch up.......ok look at this beauty...
My bargain, Laura Ashley armchair, yup just the one ( you know sometimes in teeny tiny houses, we can obsess over storage and space and not having enough of it, and think we have to fill every inch of each room. And actually we have a lovely huge vintage sofa fit for four bottoms, and so one beautiful armchair was needed. ) was an ex display, has a few little scrapes but nothing dreadful...."whooppeeeeeeeeee " I said to the Q, " I love youuuuuuu " I said to the Q......she came home and happy as larry we've been ever since.
But what of the dog I hear you ask................well, my Cath Kidston sewing box sits neatly on top of the cushion ( The white one in picture, you know, so the armchair dosnt get scratched....I may be a little neurotic about the chair...I admit. ) extreme to the other.
Am I weird?
We have done more than walks and buying chairs. We have frogs in the pond, and are still painting and restoring the sash windows. We have settle back into school life ever so swiftly, and making a roaring trade selling the chicken eggs out in the lane........
What else? well there's plenty. I have a lovely little project up my sleeve. One that I've been working on for a few weeks now. When the time is right, I promise to share. Pinky promise.
Guess what? It's FRIDAY tomorrow. Happy Friday to you all xxxxxxxxxxxx

A post about a girl........x

I think I may have said before, but I do, really truly, honestly have THE bestest pal in the whole entire world..........
What makes for a bestest friend?
Hummm ok , well I'm sure you all have your own ideas, but let me just share a few of mine with you ( feel free to add to these )....
You know he/she is your best friend when......
* They ask how your day went, and they really actually mean it. Theyre not just making conversation.
* They can finish your sentance, or give you a look, and in that one look, you KNOW you are both thinking the same exact thing.
* That bitch has your back.
* You can tell them your most precious secrets, and that's what they stay as.....secrets.
* Good, bad, ugly...........they might not agree with you, or any decision you make, but they will always be there, with a cup of tea and packet of chocolate biscuits.
* If you look back, over the years........all those memories shared. They will always have a little piece of you in their heart, and vice versa.
* You would literally stand infront of a bus for question.
* There is no nonsense, no agenda, no bitching, no point scoring, just friendship.
* Your kiddies love them as much as you do.
My bestest has it all. Can I give you one example?
Ok, the bestest knows I've a bit under the weather. Firstly can I say she always calls ( though we live miles and miles apart, sorry again, because I'm guesing I've told you that before too ) just for a check in.............Secondly the lady knows of my new jobbie ( which I think she is more excited about that me hehe ) Thirdly....I recieve a message...." Keep your twinkly eye out for the postie "......hummmmmmmmmmm thought I, what is she up too?
She only went a got a Rob Ryan Nattie Noodle bag all for me..........perfect for work she tells me. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh don't you love a bestest?
I am blessed with the bestest best........hehe.
So you know I filled that baby up right away, just to go and do the food shop.
Happy weekend all xxxxxxx
