All troubles seem blown away in the sea air, and Brighton is one of my favourite places so I was totally in my element. I roamed the beech and then went along The Lanes which are a network of streets with some of the most eccelctic shops you'll find anywhere. Unfortunately I had to come home again, but still feel uplifted by my adventure.
The hot houses were fantastic too. My favourite ones were the Victorian ones, covered in statues and embellishments and made of lots of panes of glass. Inside they were like little patches of paradise, water features, fragile and exotic flowers and so many shades of green:
I spent most of the day there, walked until my feet ached, and still didn't see everything. I want to go back at late summer/beginning of autumn and see how it changes.

Enough is enough though, tomorrow may well be Friday the bloomin 13th but I'm not buying it, I'm not taking part, not letting anything get me down tomorrow. I am going to have a good day, even if every possible thing goes wrong. I am going to have a Monty Python spirited day - looking on the bright side, stiff upper lip, chin -up, chest out, maybe a bit of a funny walk.
*I even got stuck in my own bathroom because the door handle broke.

I feel so much better today than I did last Friday. The sun is shining and while it isn’t warm out it does feel gloriously bright and fresh. I always feel so positive on a day like this – like something exciting will happen, or a big adventure will start…
I’m planning to make up for everything I didn’t do for my birthday this weekend, so my to do list reads something like this:
- Sleep in
- Birthday breakfast of Croissants
- Drive back home
- Play with my little niece and marvel at how much she’s grown
- See my parents
- Eat out somewhere lovely with my Boyfriend
- Go to proper old fashioned pub in Kenilworth and catch up with friends I haven’t seen in ages.
- Have a Sunday roast with family
- Drive home and snuggle on the sofa

And this absolutely gorgeous Momiji bag from given to me by my lovely friend Erica. We both love the quote 'we lie on our backs watching the clouds. our lovely day.’
Unfortunately I got ill the day before my birthday so all celebrations and work were put on hold as I was flat out under a blanket. I spent the whole weekend looking pathetic, with my boyfriend equally afflicted. I’m only just beginning to feel my old self now. All reunions with friends are rescheduled for next weekend, and in the mean time I have a massive backlog of to-do’s to catch up on.
I had the delight of being featured on the Etsy weekend deals, which was a fantastic boost, the same deal is running next weekend too. Thank you to everyone who made orders, enquiries and sent lovely messages it really is a good feeling that there are people out there who like what I do.
