I had big plans & high hopes for christmas this year but my back had different ideas, so after 10 days in bed I have ventured down workroom smells of cat pee, the floors make me feel rather ill, there is mess scattered everywhere and I can just about kick it aside with my slippered foot as I shuffle through the carnage and as for the kitchen well eating from the dustbin maybe a healthier choice. To top it all off we have family coming to stay in a couple of days...I think I may return to bed for the rest of the year!

I am desperate to get going on sorting out my studio for the workshops I will be running in this space....there are only so many times you can sketch your ideas onto paper before you just have to get stuck in and I haven't painted anything for days!

So I wish all you lovelies a most wonderful celebration and hope that 2012 has been the most amazing year for all of you....its certainly one I shall remember for many years to come....

I had a most splendid time at the Country Living fair....met lots of lovely people in the real life flesh, sold many books to a fair few converts to the right and goodly path of 'granny chic', got tangled in a microphone more than once but now feel quite an expert in this standing up in front of folks and rambling thing and had a good old chin wag with my favourite stylist from Country Living Mag Caroline Reeves but most of all had a fab time with the lovely Tracy & her wayward rabbits....

Now I have almost recovered its time to get stuck into Christmas, catch up on all those half finished projects before I begin a fresh in the new year with a couple of really most excellent things that I cannot wait to share with keep popping by and see you all soon xxxx
