We have a wonderful new tradition when my brother, his wife and son come to visit us from Denmark. My lovely sister-in-law, Noelle and I then go on a girly trip and have Afternoon Tea somewhere swanky in the Cotswolds. The pics above are from our Afternoon Tea at Dormy House.
You know that feeling when you open a nice present and you just know you’re going to love it, you know exactly where it’s going to go or how you want to use it… and then when you start using it, it lives up to all your expectations and more. That’s exactly how I felt when I received a diffuser and a scented candle from Di Palomo.
I want to share with you our trip to Compton Verney. With kids (well, with our kids, anyway), a trip to a museum or gallery is not one we often embark upon and not one we do without expecting some degree of failure. Our kids are just not the museum-going kind of kids, come to think of it, neither are we, so I guess that offers some explanation.
In my life I’ve treasured very few things as much or for as long as I have my gorgeous Pinch of Salt quilt. I believe in using the things you love, not saving them for the perfect occasion.. I think we should just use the things we love and treasure to maximise the enjoyment we get from it.
But not so with my Pinch of Salt quilt. The kids are not allowed to use it, sit on it, eat near it or even walk past it, really! I LOVE THIS QUILT… it’s the pretty and elegant design that’s just up my street, it’s the quality materials, fabulous!
