Summer Holidays v Christmas

Well the school holidays are in full swing.  Lots of visits to the park, swimming pool, ice cream eating - you get the idea.

We are off on our jolly hols next Friday.  Yep this time next week, we will be landing in The South of France.  We all need this holiday.  Charlie needs some sun on his pale and skinny body.  He is still having lots of treatment for his childhood arthritis, and more to come when we get back.  Neil needs to get away from it all, especially work and the house.  The house, which we are doing up in stages seems to be taking longer than planned.  Hopefully I will be able to show you pictures on our return.

Posts keep popping up on Facebook about how many weeks there are till Christmas.  Oh heck, I better get my skates on and start sewing some of these little beauties.  I will be adding personalised handstamped tags this year.  I will post these on my Facebook page beginning of September, for those of you who are extra organised with their Christmas shopping xxxx

Gardening Galore

At last, my wonderful grapevine has produced bunches and bunches of grapes this year.  What to do with them - haven't a clue.

There must be bottles upon bottles of wine on that vine of mine, but how to get it from the plant into the bottle is way beyond me.

I hear Sainsbury's do a nice selection of wine, just might pop in for a look - so much easier, and far less messy!

Birthday Wishes

Firstly, sorry its been months since I have blogged.  We are doing up a house in the next village, and all my time seems to be taken up with painting, cleaning and waiting around for contractors.

Im hoping to be back blogging soon.  You may have noticed that I have changed my blog name to Stripes and Stars, this is because my little business is under this name, so I thought I would tie it all in together.

OK, secondly a very big Birthday Wish to our house rabbit Reggie, who is 5 today - love you Reggie...x
