It has been a long time - a jolly long time - so long that I've almost forgotten how to use Typepad! So long that I haven't, and don't know where to start. So I thought I would just pop in tonight and say a quick hello to get me started as Anth is cooking (gosh I adore that man.)
But what shall I tell you about first...my latest sewing projects, my every growing excitement for the first lighting of the fire (soon, so soon and that also is connected to some sewing projects in a roundabout way..hmmm all will be revealed when I can actually finish it but there's no fire until it's finished...yiks!!) my 2 stone weight loss (woo hoo!!) and subsequent new dresses, our darling Lucy's 18th birthday, our trip to Bath, being snubbed by David Crosby and the rest of the band (quite literally actually..Matthew and I are still talking about the experience.) Alfie and Posy's obsession with shopping bags, and the fact that our bed has changed colour again.
But, I won't start any of that now but just show you the wonderful hollyhocks. I passionately love hollyhocks. I haven't grown any for a few years now but have been known to come home in my lunch hour just to check on them and to see if they have flowered and what colour they were. Sad.
