another year

lake como
oh were to start {would probably just be easier to do an update on what we haven't been doing} the summer holidays started early for us, with the start of our family birthday month, i celebrated my birthday with breakfast in England & ended it with dinner in Italy, such a lovely trip to a beautiful place, i felt truly grateful, i was also given some beautiful gifts i shall use & treasure for years to come

we've then celebrated birthday number two, which mostly involved football {presents, party & cake!} but all went generally smoothly - phew,
i'm on some crazy mission to redecorate/revamp the house on a budget, finding the time is  my biggest problem,  i've been busy with the yarn too - the camping granny is finished in time for the next camping holiday & the monster of a cardigan for my man is finally done! hooray, such a weight off my shoulders, but they both truly deserve a post all of their own! back soon,


  1. So lovely- I really would love to go to Italy one day. Happy summer Kelly xx

  2. happy belated birthday! oh fantastic to celebrate there. my favourite destination. i long to go back. the food drink people watching is amazing :) glad your summer is busy and bright. i too am on a budget and looking to do lots of updates to our home. good luck to us both. especially as elsa doesn't nap in the day anymore!! x
