Entries in birthday (2)


A cause for celebration

Just a short post today as it's been a pretty busy weekend and I'm still playing catch up. I absolutely packed it to the brim of fun birthday stuff and to take you through each and every minute would bore you all, I'm sure, so I've chosen to pull together a little photographic collage of Friday's activities and then another for the weekend.

Forgive the big 'stand out' theme here though of in no-particular-order food, drink and shopping, I only just realised this when putting this lot together.  Say's it all really!

I'm a lucky lady indeed, I've been thoroughly spoilt by loved ones all weekend and I have to say that I'm really looking forward to making the most of the next 40.  Bring it on..

Thanks also to everyone here that wished me a happy birthday.

Oh... also, I'm sorry this post has absolutely nothing to do with interior design.  There'll be more about the design details of The Savoy and Lifehouse in a future post.


Entrance to The Savoy, Cocktails in The American Bar, The Savoy Grill Menu, Cake for the Birthday Girl, Marlene Dietrich's registration card, Colchester Oysters, Tonga Bean profiteroles, A spend up in Liberty for this, Picking a present from hubby in Abigail's store.

The weekend

Cupcakes from my boys, A facial at Lifehouse, the View from our Balcony at Lifehouse, the bezzies - Mel, Keely and Barb, 40th birthday flutes (no I'm not 120!), Cupcakes made by bezzie Clare, Birthday quote from this book, bezzies Nic, Kara and Kimberley.


I hope you all had fun filled weekends too, do tell me more.



A year on

I'm sitting here in my snug this morning, feeling a bit bored to be honest.  I've just finished my weekly meeting and tea drinking with the book keeper and now I'm doing a combination of nail picking, Radio 1 listening, video content uploading, customer emailing and tweet reading.  It's not possible to do those things brilliantly and in unison, I'm forever telling (sorry, encouraging) my hubby to just focus on doing one thing at a time, as too much constant plate spinning leads to frustration, discontent and noncompletion.  Well, it does for me anyway.

But, something has helped me focus...

Having commented on Annie from Insideology's latest blog post this morning, I then led on (via various steps that I cannot for the life of me remember now) to Erin at like/want/need's, and read that she has just celebrated her blog's 1st birthday.

And then it struck me, a light bulb moment - when did I start my blog?  A quick click back through to my site later, and there was the answer... 7th February 2011.

Remembering key, personal dates such as birthdays and anniversaries has never been my strong point.  At least, those for family and close friends are always fixed in the mind, but anything outside of that, I'm absolutely useless, so it's no surprise that I forgot my Bright Space's birthday.

A year on, and reflecting on the first post and the words written, my blog now has more of an identity and a load more of my personality and style. Since my New Year's resolution was to write more, I've certainly achieved that so far, the content ideas are more free-flowing and I'm really enjoying the experience.  On the days when I wake up and struggle for something interesting, useful and unique to say, then to hell with writing, I don't think the blog police are going to haul me in and lock me up (do they exist?).

So, I shall say mucho thanks to all you lovely people that visit and particularly to my new found design friends that I've met through social media and KLC who give me lots of words of encouragement, you know who you are.

And here's to another year of happy blogging.

Forget pancakes, let's celebrate and eat cake
