What did I miss?

4 month hey?  It’s been a while.  I have had the most stressful 4 months in a long time.  NOT FUN, but, I think that’s it now, everything has started to calm down a little bit and I’m getting back to normal and finding the time to do the things I love doing, like making stuff and telling you all about it!

I’ve got a few little projects on the go which I’m very close to finishing so pictures will follow soon, but in the meantime here’s a few little pictures from my recent trip to the Chelsea Flower Show…

It was a brilliant day out!  But there was soooo much rain!  We got soaked so spent most of the time in the big tent or hidden in the hospitality tent eating chelsea buns with clotted cream and jam..  mmmmm….

Day 3: a night at the theatre

Well I’ve had quite an exciting Wednesday night as Wednesday nights go.

I escaped from work a little bit early, jumped on the train to London and went to see War Horse.

It was AMAZING!! It’s not on for much longer so if you get the chance to see it I would definitely recommended it.
We also went to Wahaca for dinner, that was pretty tasty and I got these amazing chilli seed matchsticks!

Cool eh?
I’m on the train home now, luckily the last stop is my stop so it doesn’t matter if a shut my eyes for a little bit.
Just before I go I have to add a photo of the roof in kings cross station, it’s quite nice don’t you think?
