back from the city...


...of norwich! had lots of fun at the clutter city diy market yesterday, but my smile muscles are really worn out...being nice all day to strangers is bloody exhausting ;) but the best bit was finally meeting liv who is absolutely lovely! luckily we were placed right opposite each other and spent lots of time laughing and chatting. thankyou to those who left lovely comments, i really appreciated your support.
another lovely thing happened the other day...some snail mail love from sarah, what a complete treat to have this delightful package delivered to me...the most gorgeous prints ever, i can't wait to frame them...and i'm really excited because it's the official start of my art collection for the farmhouse :) which incidentally has taken a rather exciting upturn: the quotes are all in and although it looks like we'll be broke for the next million years, work starts in the second week of june for around 5 months. i'm sweating slightly because a gable wall has to come down to remove a useless and crumbling chimney stack...apparently the ceilings have to come down too...alarming, yet thrilling at the same time! actually, in all honesty not thrilling at all, just alarming.

Glad all went well in my birth city for you! I may be tempted to visit the July Clutter City if I remember nearer the time, I could combine it with wedding dress shopping :)
