13 of 52 weeks of happy

Good afternoon

Like I said in my last post - this week has had plenty of happy moments - two of the bests one deserved their own posts - the arrival of my newest nephew and my dancing debut. However there have been other moments too and here they are;

1 - A new frock - bought with birthday vouchers from Joules. It was love at first sight and even better I've been shrinking this year and its a size smaller too - 2 happy moments in 1!

2 - Mini daffs finally flowering - these poor things have spent lots of time under snowy blankets and it was lovely to see them finally flower on a sunny day.

3 - Another bonus of the sunny and windy weather - washing drying outside - it means my kitchen looks less like a laundry.

4 - Trying on all my Morris gear together for the first time (10 minutes before we were due to leave on Sat!!) - a skirt made by me (with help from a lovely friend), a 50's net underskirt which I adore, a tailcoat on a long-term loan from a sister and a brilliant lacy mask - oh and of course new boots and a stick!

See you soon - a happy moment due anytime now - a cuppa and catch up with my oldest friend :)

PS - Oh yes I will be dancing at Folk East this summer - can't wait :)
