Tough week

Well what an eventful week its been and i'm so glad that it has come to an end!!

It all seemed too good to be true after spending hours uploading, updating and finally getting on top of the new webstore, I received a nasty little email from my webhost telling me that they had suspended my website, webstore and email due to the fact that too much server time had been used and I'd exceeded my CPU time! Who the hell knows what CPU is anyway, the whole point of me signing up with them (JUST HOST) was because it was supposed to be a really user friendly, for the complete novice web server. Ok i've had my rant, so after hours and hours of work we now have to redo the whole thing.

So after searching around found a new web provider and am beginning to start again with the site and store etc.

Anyway thankfully my sister and my niece turned up with an unexpected visit on Thursday which was lovely!!!

Also I had my first delivery of fabric from Clarke and Clarke which was really exciting and also quite worrying, as I now need to pay for it!!!!!

The gorgeous fabrics! YumYum!!

I've also spent several hours over the past few days adding items to my Ebay account which has been really time consuming but hopefully it will be worth it in the end and I sold my first apron on it too which was great.

Attended Pulborough Farmers Market on Saturday which was great as always, run by a lovely group of ladies and also have the best bacon sarnies, teas and conversations.

I've been busily making lots of new yummy aprons, cushions with the new fabrics!!
Well tomorrow is another day and a new week, so lets hope its better then the last one, with not too many hiccups!

Lucie's 8th Birthday Celebrations

Had a really busy weekend sorting out things for our beautiful daughter Lucie's 8th birthday on Sunday.
We enjoyed a lovely day with the family and had Lucie's
favourite food 'Lasagne' for lunch. Followed by a big chocolate birthday cake.. Yum Yum!!!!!

Our big boy Jack got his first spiky haircut
and looks so delicious, or'cool' as he says.

Lucie loved her birthday and we all loved sharing it with my mum and sisters and my gorgeous 18 month old niece Ginny who is so incredibly funny with her dancing and giggling.

Start of a busy week yesterday I had Lucie's craft party to organise for 8, 8 year olds girls, cupcakes, millionaire shortbread baked, party bags put together, decided to make butterfly hanging hearts with the girls, which was lets just say 'interesting' lots of fun but I have sore fingers this morning. Hearts looked great though and they were ready for their birthday food once they'd finished. I was ready for a large glass of wine for all my efforts.

Lucie had a fab time which was the main thing.

Today need to get organised for the farmers market at Pulborough on Saturday, slightly concerned as I still don't have my car back on the road and only have Les's little peugout to fit all my wares in, definitely going to be a squeeze.

Well better get started magnetic pegs to make, aprons, Lemon curd and hot chilli jam on my to do list over next couple of days.
