Life lately

Hello. Sorry I haven't been around recently! I haven't really had much to write about and then the days just sort of slid by and then the no writing panic set in!
But I'm back now and ready to share a few snapshots of my life.......

Making rhubarb crumble with my mum's home grown rhubarb
New hanging baskets and my pet friendly hoover
Dressing like it's the 90's and having bbq's
Half price Monday's at the Slug and Lettuce and fake Magnums
Constructing my wedding brooch bouquet - tutorial coming soon!
Potential wedding venue

What have I been up to then? My mum was visiting last weekend so we took the opportunity to drive out to the New Forest and check out some wedding venues. The one above is definitely the winner so far. Talk about wow factor....
 
We also went to try on some wedding dresses and the lovely ladies at "Brides" in Portswood were able to fit us in with no appointment! I tried about 5 different dresses and fell in love with one that was over budget and not at all what I thought I wanted.....

Obviously we weren't allowed to take photos and I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise anyway! I'm torn between sharing everything with you (as is my usual style) and not wanting to give away all the details of the day.

I have started to construct my wedding brooch bouquet using all the different brooches that my mum and I have collected. It's hard work. The wire has to be thick to make it sturdy but that makes it impossible to bend and shape. I will persevere. Would you like a tutorial of how it's done?

 Let me know....

P.S The pic that I've labelled "dressing like it's the 90's" is due to watching serious amounts of "My So Called Life" on BT On Demand. It's from way back in 1994 I think and was my FAVOURITE programme as a misunderstood teenager. Angela was like, totally, like me.....
