Its almost as long a time since I posted as my blog break way back in September.
There were personal reasons for that which still haven't been resolved but perhaps I'll use pictures from that weekend that I would have posted if I had felt it appropriate.
We had a long organised re union of my husband's University friends and 60th Birthday of one of them so we went to the Midland Hotel Morecambe.
After we met in Staveley we went off to Blackwell overlooking Windermere.
A beautiful Arts and Crafts House.
I got into trouble taking these photographs but as I said in my subsequent e mail to them if they don't want people to take photographs they should have signs up where you can see them and not just 'one on the desk in reception'.
I looked very carefully and couldn't see any.
Anyway the Midland Hotel had no such qualms about photography
It was truly amazing, Art Deco, with quirky rooms and design solutions and all in all it could have been a thoroughly enjoyable weekend.
The sun set on cue over Morecambe bay. (OH! DO click this picture, please..twice if you like!)
I'd love to do it again in a less troubled time, but tis is not the point of this post..
the point is to tell you...
...I am ready now for the weekend in Teddington.
My goods are packed and my labels are printed.
I hope I sell a goodly number of my pieces but you just never know.
And when I return I WILL get on top of that ironing.
I WILL scrub the kitchen floor.
I WILL tidy the cupboard under the sink.
I WILL go for a walk EVERY DAY.
