  • Having one of those days when my laptop has very nearly been jettisoned out the window along with some choice language, usually reserved for sailors and navvies, (no disrespect to sailors or navvies) 
So I’m finding some peace in shades of green. Nothing much going on in the garden yet, so I bought these to try and make my day a little more zen like. 
Oh, and by the way, we’ve added some more bits to the website and we’re planning the first open weekend of the year! 🧘🏻‍♀️💚🌿

  • I’ve counted, it’s nine weeks until British Summer Time begins. Also nine weeks until our first open weekend of the year…more of that later though. In the meantime, I’m lighting candles in the kitchen and starting to plan….

  • Tulips: Local market
Hyacinths: Gift from Mr P
Blossom: Stolen from the park. 
The smell of spring, lifting my spirits this cold Monday. Wrap up warm, it’s bitey out there….❄️

  • In 20 years of buying and selling antiques, I have a list of a few favourite things that have passed through my hands…and this is definitely one of them. I sold this original antique French salon sofa a few years ago, to a lovely lady who runs a shoot location house near here. It has been used very lightly, mainly in the background of photographs since then. When she contacted me to say she was having a change round of her shoot props and would I be interested in buying it back, I jumped at the chance. From its original soft green paint, to the stunning vintage faded floral upholstery…it’s a total delight. I’m so happy to have it again, and I’ll be pleased to pass it on again for someone else to enjoy. It’ll be going on the website this week.

  • Right. Decorations packed away. Tree carted off to the tip (😥 always makes me sad) House cleaned (ish) 
Strapping myself in to see what ‘22 is going to throw at us. Tin hats on everyone. Happy New Year an’ all that. X

  • My most popular posts from 2021 and of course Dolly is the main event. Does anyone else think this year has just gone in a flash? I’m feeling slightly trepidatious for 2022, but will  stay positive. Here’s to more open weekends and more daft pictures of Dolly.

  • That’s it. Last orders done. Eldest safely ‘rona free and home. Middle child took it down to the wire with a positive result 10 days ago, but will be sprung from isolation today. By tonight, all three will (hopefully) be safely in the homestead. Dolly is very happy, as you can see. 
So, happy, happy Christmas to all my friends in Insta-land. A massive heartfelt “Thank You” for every like, follow and comment. I love the warmth you find on here. Wishing you all a merry, peaceful, ‘rona free Christmas🌟

  • The Knoxy Roxy. Where we watch Christmas films projected onto the big white wall. That’s after squabbling about who watched which Christmas film “without me”. Elf and Griswolds Christmas Vacation are sacred. Anyone who watches them before coming home, risks Christmas on their own. Except Mr P, who only likes Bad Santa. What’s your favourite?

  • I find lighting candles under a load of dead foliage adds a fun element of surprise on the big day…will it all go up like a tinder box or won’t it! ⭐️🔥💥*

  • Not a big fan of photos of myself or over sharing, but I just wanted to say a massive great big thank you to everyone who came, shared, said kind things, spent their hard earned money and generally supported us this weekend. 
The last three years have been like steering a jumbo jet…riding the turbulence through a cancer diagnosis, treatment and a global pandemic but I’m still here and so very thrilled, humbled and delighted by how many people came to my little Chapel this weekend. It exceeded my expectations many times over. 
Ok, I’ll shut up now….X
