I've just been on' Come Dine with Me'...

This is just the quickest of notes to explain my absence.
 I've been on the television show ' Come Dine with Me'. It was manic, exhausting, exciting and I  have laughed more than I've ever done in my life.
The other guests and the crew were amazing...
I can't wait to tell you all about it properly when our episode has come out later in the summer.
Apart from the week's filming and dining and, of course, cooking- I seem to have spent the last few weeks desperately tidying and de-cluttering my house.

It does look nice now though, so it was worth it. Now I just have to catch up with everything in my life that was put on hold!
I hope to be back to normal very soon.

A very stylish affair

Last weekend was  a thoroughly English event. The Vintage Nostalgia Show at Stockton Park was the perfect cocktail of vintage stalls, cars and that special added ingredient, so rare in England... sunshine!

I had my helpers-

Emily in her favourite boater

David in his favourite hat

Everything  looked so bright and cheerful in the sun

There were some beautiful stalls

It was especially nice to have Sophie nearby

And lovely people

Don't our dresses go well together?

These are some more of my favourite things...

This made David laugh!

We all entered into the spirit of the weekend, I even had my hair done by a 'travelling hairdresser'

It was a lovely weekend. Although I decided to bring less stock with me next time

At the end of the weekend, by the time we had packed everything  in the van and then taken it out again when back at home...
We were only fit to sit in the garden and drink a very large gin and tonic!
