This will be something of a bits and bobs post as I am writing it without a theme, just as something to do while I am running various bits of software to extract and verify emails ahead of my first ever email campaign.
Firstly a very belated but very big thank you to Sue over at A New Life in the Country who very kindly sent me some lavender goodies a few weeks ago when I was lucky enough to win her giveaway.
She sent a huge array of lavender themed things which turned my office into a really relaxing and fragrant space for a while. And this is my very favourite - a simple but pretty little lavender filled heart. It is hanging next to me as I type.
Thank you so much Sue. And for anyone who has yet to discover her blog do go and have a look - it is fascinating stuff. As the the title of her blog suggests Sue really has started a New Life in the Country - growing veggies, raising chickens and attending country markets with her lavender things. It sounds like a dream life doesn't it, and in many ways it is - but I know I couldn't do it. There is hard work outside in the cold and lots of mud. Go and see!
It is Friday which means that Isobel will be coming over later - Mike's daughter who lives with us at the weekends. I love this picture of her in my office with Humphrey.
And while we're on family photos I kept meaning to post this picture of Mike I took when Ernest the rooster came to stay. He is probably going to kill me for publishing it (those of you who know Mike will know he is not the sort of man to enjoy being photographed with a soft toy rooster) but I think it's a nice photo!
Well that'll do for now and I'll post something a bit more 'professional' later on...
