If friends were flowers

If friends were flowers, I'd pick you  - Carole !

I made another of these gorgeous Kusudama flower bouquets for my lovely friend Carole

Carole has been through a rough few weeks and I wanted to make something for her to let her know I am always thinking of her even if I am not there

I wrangled out of her that her lounge is in shades of green and cream so made the flowers to co-ordinate

It was an absolute pleasure to make her them as she is always the one thinking of and caring for other people, hope things continue to get better for you Carole, love ya xxx

We have had another busy week at home, we have now completely finished decorating Amy's room, all I need to do now is add some new curtains and I am in the process of altering some photo frames and making some art to put in them

We have also finished the hallway, kitchen, utility room and lounge.

It has been an interesting week, we are painting everywhere white and we have the 'joy' of Bruce, big, black, hairy Bruce, needing to be with us at every moment, he is so loving and sweet it is hard to tell him to go away, so we are painting around him and dealing with stray hairs as we need to. He had that many white spots on him last week he was in danger of looking like a dalmation ( would have made a good halloween costume !)

Talking of Bruce, this is his usual routine when AJ leaves for school, he cheekily steps onto the coffee table and tucks his head under the curtains so he can watch him set off for school, I am sure we had a 'no dogs on the furniture rule' !!!

One last thing before I bid you all goodnight, if any of my local friends haven't yet tried the new Beechwood Farm restaurant on the Europark at Great Coates, we can highly recommend it

Neil and I enjoyed a fantastic carvery, gorgeous tender meat and too many variations of vegetables and side dishes to name, all utterly delish. But unless you actually want to be able to move afterwards I suggest you don't get the largest plate, we were totally stuffed . It was really busy, and the atmosphere was lovely - word has spread fast. All the dishes leaving the kitchen looked fab and really, really generous portion sizes.

Love, friends, flowers and feasts
