Summer sale at These Foolish things.....

The phrase 'Cant see the woods for the trees' was surely written with me in mind!

My Vintage stock is getting a teeny bit out of hand and I need to have a major sort out and get it all on the website so I am giving a 25% discount on everything for a limited period,in order to fill it with even more pretties,so go on! pop over and bag a bargain!

Hello! how the Devil are you all? Me? borderline psychotic today could all change tomorrow.

So....its my big day on Sunday! I am as you know hosting a Vintage and handmade fair! Hurrah! its going to be fabulous! will report back as soon as its over and I am off the Valium(joking)

So what else is new? Well,I have a new cooker! Oh happy happy days! if I could sleep on the kitchen floor next to it I swear I would! it is indeed a thing of joy,although it is huge and I did lose two cupboards,plus the old oven housing unit which resulted in tiles being replaced,repainting etc. But hey! love it.
The weather here in the bleak North has been....well,bleak.Its appalling for July,haven't been to the allotment much,therefore I will no doubt be in for a bit of grief from the allotment police,AKA 'The committee'
I am hugely looking forward to the big school holidays! lazy mornings with my girls! Bliss! I would love a little nice weather so we could go to the beach.
I am loving 'The killing' on ch4 on thursday nights,thoroughly enjoying my latest amazon delivery 'How to be a woman' by Caitlin Moran(soooo funny) still hopelessly addicted to facebook and twitter,fighting raging hormones,having weird dreams and eating too much cheese.

Loving life. How about you?

Love after Love ........

The time will come when,with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door,in your own mirror
and each will smile at the others welcome.
And say sit here,eat.
You will love again the stranger who was yourself.
Give wine.Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself,to the stranger that has loved you all your life,
who you ignored for another,
who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs,the desperate notes.
Peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit.Feast on your life.
Derek Walcott.
