Hello 2012!

January 6, 2012

Firstly a big thank you to everyone who has stopped by in the last couple of months despite my absence, i’m so sorry, life simply got too hectic!

I won’t bore you with all the details but it can be summerised as thus: online shop launch, yay! outlaws arriving for two weeks in the midst of this; travel around Australia with said outlaws and husband, enjoy the sites but no internet connection – a wee bit unhelpful, back to Sydney apartment with one day to wash and pack for trip back to UK, a long, long flight and one v.sore bottom later arrive at Heathrow, hop straight onto train to King X then to Lincolnshire, meet the Mother, straight to charity shop on prop hunt, spend next 3 days dressing Christmas pop up shop ready for it’s grand opening, forget about jet lag, open shop, work in shop and meet lots of lovely, lovely new people, work in shop some more and pack orders for online shop, do this in midst of the Mothers house move/renovation, remember jet lag, travel to Yorkshire, visit Sculpture Park and Donna Wilson exhibition (will share pics soon), back to Lincolnshire, work in shop, travel to London, stay with lil’ sis whilst she moves house (do i make people want to move house?), catch up with friends and consume my own body weight in food and beverages, kiss lots of babies, fly back to Sydney, now the jet lag really hits, 2 days to get acclimatised, lovely set builder friend James comes to stay, more beverages consumed, inlcuding homemade Limoncello – yum, he leaves same day as brother in law arrives, Christmas, travel up to Queensland, snorkel on Great Barrier Reef and trek around rain forest, back to Sydney for NY fireworks – awesome by the way, bro in law left 2 days ago – cleaned house and have just about gathered my wits again!

Basically feel as if i have crammed at least 6 monthes worth of stuff into 2! I’m really sad as i didn’t even get to share some of the Christmas craft shoots i styled back in October for New Idea, oh well i can bring them out next year i suppose! I’ll share some of the other crafty shoots i’ve been doing for them in the next few weeks and everything else i have planned for 2012, exciting times.

Thanks for all the lovely comments, feedback and general nice vibes you people have been sending my way via this little blog – it’s a bit random and sporadic at times but i hope to do better this year! L x x
