Well, it has been a bit of a week, with sunshine and showers both weather-wise and for me personally too…
Out & about
I had a bit of a health scare which was completely remedied by a couple of hours at a hospital on Monday. I’m absolutely fine now…but these little hiccups in life really do make you put things into perspective, don’t they?
So, on Wednesday, when I dropped my camera on to a hard floor and broke the lens…yes, I was very annoyed and it’ll cost me a little bit to replace it, but at the end of the day, it’s only a lens. And it can be replaced…
The positive side of it is that, touch wood, my camera seems to be still working fine and the new lens I’ve ordered to replace it is a bit more whizzy. So it should help me take better photos in poor light conditions.
Wrote blog posts and dealt with emails. Started drafting a new guest blog post for the Laura Ashley blog.
Signed off copy for my Wedding Flowers magazine article.
Had a wonderful day attending a One Day Wedding Flowers course at the Judith Blacklock Flower School in London. I’ll be blogging about it soon.
Started drafting my May newsletter which will be going out next week.
You may have seen the interview which I featured with Sania earlier this month.
It was really lovely to see her and join in making my very own Liberty print floral brooch!
Here are a few photos from the afternoon…
