Silver Linings...

Family...

Silver Linings. Apparently every cloud has one. My problem is that I'm a tad rubbish at finding them. I tend to only see the rain approaching.

You see, I'm actually really bad at dealing with change. And things not in my control. In fact, if I'm totally honest, at the moment, I'm just really bad at dealing with everything. I mentioned a while ago (I think) about how there would be a blog post later on about some slightly not so cheery stuff to do with stuff. This is not going to be that blog post but, to sum it up, I'm a pretty anxious person, with a fairly hot head, and a knack for crying a lot.

So yesterday (after I had planned a whole week of staff shifts to work round the shop move, plus friends and family cover to look after the Sconchlet during this crazy moving period) when we all rocked up to collect the shop keys and all piled in to my lovely new shop to begin decorating and we found it actually not even remotely ready to move in because, well, I won't go in to details, but let's just say the builders have had to be called in, it wasn't really a great time for me.

Summertime weekends. My favourite time of the year. Especially when it means getting away.

We are very lucky to have lovely neighbours who are happy to dog sit meaning we can pop out for day trips to the beach (for those that aren't local, we are only about 45 minutes from the beautiful Mersea Island). Last year was full of happy memories of pottering around on the beach, and we have already started our trips for this year...

Weekend Shenanigans...

27/04/2016 10:48

Firstly I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the amazing response I have had to the last blog post. I've had a LOT of private messages about it, full of support, which is amazing. I sometimes find the concept of blogging a bit odd. Pouring your heart out to strangers. But that's the thing really, isn't it? Blogging simply widens your friendship circle. So thank you x

 

However, despite all of that stuff, life continues. It was a crazy weekend here at Sconch HQ (what's new?). We had a right old proper knees up on Saturday at the Bocking Village Club with the Bocking Theatre Club for their St George's Day Cockney Night. It was a fun singalong night with much merriment  (probably something to do with the speciality gins on offer - new favourite, grapefruit slice in Tanqueray)

Here I am with my spiffing red braces and flat cap (courtesy of Chameleon Costumes - although now wondering why I don't have braces as part of my standard wardrobe).
