Easter Madness

Hope you all had a fantastic Easter and ate a huge amount of chocolate? I know I did and I then spent the rest of the day (and the next day) telling Grace 'NO' to any more chocolate!

My Hubby likes to do treasure hunts (see the post for Grace's birthday in November) and this Easter he didn't let us down. Grace, me, sis and Granny all had to go from room to room finding colour coded cardboard egg parts, until all our parts made four eggs in total. I think my sister enjoyed it a bit too much and beat us all (including Grace) to finding all the parts! Great fun though and Grace loved helping Granny who couldn't find any of the parts!I've been trying to make pouches for the summer months to sell in my Etsy shop and here is my first one and I'm rather pleased with it.

I also knitted these dark gray gloves with a touch of cashmere embellished with a light silver satin ribbon....lovely, soft and cosy.

It's my Hubby's birthday today....32 and still looking fab! So this is a birthday post dedicated to the birthday boy. Grace and I are off to meet him for lunch, then I'm cooking a birthday dinner, followed by a game or two on the Wii I think. HAPPY BIRTHDAY J xxx

The Comeback Kid

Well after much deliberation and procrastination I have decided to post on my blog again. I think I had a touch of writers block because of course I write so much text on my blog! I've left my memory card with all of my photos on it at work so not many photos to show and tell today.

Talking about work, one of the reasons I haven't been blogging lately is due to the relocation of the art gallery that I work at 4 days a week. For the past 10 years has been in the southside of Glasgow...tucked away in the a suburb of Glasgow, with regular customers and sales, but not much passing trade. So, a week past Wednesday the gallery finally, after much blood sweat and tears, moved to a very swanky new space right in the heart of Glasgow. The day after we moved we had our first exhibition opening at the new address. Very exciting with lots of people...I even got my hair done for the event! We plan on having a lot more exhibition openings and cocktail evenings. I have been working at the gallery three years this month and it's taking me a while to get used to my new surroundings and my new customers coming through the doors, but I'm getting there. If you are ever in Glasgow come and see me (I'm part of the furniture!).

I have still been knitting and once I have my memory card back I'll post some images of what I have been up to. I have also just come off Etsy where I have been featured on the front page which was a lovely surprise...just the kick up the butt I needed. Thank you Penny Glass Girl.

I'm off to say hello to everyone. It's nice to be back...maybe this will stop me watching too many cop programmes (the real life ones) and Girls of the Playboy Mansion! what am I like. L x
