Wendy-House Business Cards

These are my new business cards.
I'm so pleased with them.
I think the colour and design are so pretty and of course, just a little bit vintage!

Scones on Sunday

It has rained all day today. :(

Scones in front of the fire on a Sunday afternoon is the only way to keep that summer feeling going now!

I'm not giving into Autumn just yet, I'm just having 'summer' afternoon tea in the sitting room.

What a Woman!

Where do I start with how good this photo is of my Mum?

The old deck chairs, the fabulous wooden beach huts, the dress, the hair, I have no doubt the amazing shoes hidden out of shot.

Was I born in the wrong era???

Next I must mention the volume of people on the beach, unbelievable!
That's ABERDEEN beach, around a mile or so offshore there are now men in full outdoor padded wind and waterproof clothing (at all times) just in case they fall in.

My mother was swimming in there, for recreation!

What a woman!

The Plum Tree Race

Ok, the race is on.

I have two cherry trees in my garden and this year although the branches were arched with the weight of fruit, I enjoyed TWO cherries.
I love cherries, but decided to wait until they were just perfectly ripe before picking.

Every day I went out and looked at them, thinking perhaps tomorrow.
Then one day both trees were completely stripped of fruit.
The early birds got my cherries. :(

No one will have my plums!
Unless I say so.
I love plum jam and plum chutney, plum crumble and plum...... well, anything actually.

I sat under the plum tree today and now I'm watching those plums like a hawk.

I just need the sun to shine on these little beauties, turn them pink, and then - they will be mine!!!
