Christmas pudding candles, a new puppy and my summer…

…well where did that three months go?

We had a lovely, sunny couple of days in Swanage with my Dad, catching up with the Kirby clan, then a long drive up to Scotland to visit old pals (long overdue as we’ve not been for 7 years!) now an entirely different story as the “kids” have turned into “teens” (or is it tweens?) and they left us alone to do strange things like relax, chat and please ourselves! Weird!


We walked up a hill, slept, ate, caught up with old friends and celebrated my 45th birthday at an amazing restaurant (thanks Lou & Jackson)


but most of all we felt welcome & had such a laugh. We returned to Devon completely relaxed, wondering  why we’d left it so long to go up there…?

Nobody really wanted their photo taken, can you tell? Meg (below) celebrated her 13th birthday in August…


We watched a film on the beach, bought a puppy whilst away stalling at the amazing Love Lane Vintage Summer Brocante in Wisborough Green (I broke my record for my busiest day ever!) and did fairs in Tavistock, Portscatho and Dorset.




I’m off to Wiltshire tomorrow to do a vintage jumble & get rid of loads of things which I really don’t need. Having ignored the house for pretty much all of 2013 I’m having a long overdue sort out and it is very cathartic (truthfully though,  guests coming during October half term may have something to do with it)

I have perfected a new festive candle scent called Christmas Pudding, it took me ages to get it right so I hope you like it…

Don’t forget to keep an eye on my calendar so you know where to find me. You can also buy my candles in The Crafted Emporium in Dartmouth Market Square & Honeysuckle Homes Interiors in Torquay x
