Thursday 31 July 2008

Have had a mad great week of activity ........... day trip to Glasgow - nice but shopping not brilliant ...... Wedding Anniversary 17 years - went for a lovely meal to the Highwayman in Burrow - its okay there but still can't work out the attraction, its mediocre and lacking in atmosphere for me .... there are plenty of other places locally that I prefer.

Went camping in a pod in Wasdale, that was fun, far dryer than a tent (although we had great weather there were a few downpours), quieter than a tent .... just a bit more luxurious but you still feel you are doing the outside thing.

Now I am sorting things out for Gastang Show on Saturday - its going to happen rain or shine so I need to get my jewellery sorted especially the new glass bead pieces as well as all the sterling silver bits ..............

Then we are off on holday!

Monday 21 July 2008

....... had a great weekend, went for a walk on Sunday and had dinner with family, it was really nice and even nicer not to get wet .... all weekend!

Youngest daughter got called back to the hospital, a week later, only to find out she has a fracture which was over looked on the X ray .......... now she is in plaster! She has n't been at her best all week so maybe that explains it!

I finally got hold of Andrea and her beads, many thanks to Jo for sorting that ....... I have a whole load of them now and I am siftng through them ........ heaven!

16 July 2008

Have taken stock of my silver jewellery ....... need to order more silver and get making so I am up to date for trade and retail sales and then there is no last minute panic in September ..... sales in The Artroom Gallery in Garstang are going well although that is always normal initially with a new outlet ... long may it continue. PAD gallery in Preston have moved premises to somewhere more central so I am going there on Friday to drop off some new pieces..... hopefully sales will pick up now they are in a more central position.

Done a couple of runs this week .... only small ones but its a start again ...... much prefer my new regime of gym/walking but the gym is closed for the summer so I will do a bit of running instead.

Girls finish school on Friday for the summer ..... Sports Day today, sponsored walk!! tomorrow ..... both of them are not looking forward to that ... 18 miles the day before term finishes .....

Tuesday 8 July 2008

I am quite happy now with the 6 ranges of jewellery I have and I think it will sit well for the trade shows later on ....... I have one more pendant to sort out but I am having trouble with the supply.

Woke up to rain again ........ getting used to it like everyone else ..... good excuse not to run though ...... haven't actually run since the Manchester 10km ......... having fun at the gym at Wennington Hall School instead, they are really good and we have some great workouts. I will run soon but I don't want it to dominate my exercise routine so I will do some walks and cycling as well ...........

Tuesday 1 July 2008

Have made a move and started the ball rolling for the summer holidays .......... have booked 2 nights in a camping pod with 2 friends and children in Wasdale ..... in the first week of the holidays we are off to Glasgow by train for the day shoppping ...... and now I have enquired about a train journey to Poland via Berlin ....... waiting for details and a price .....

I have done the images of my sterling silver jewellery for the trade brochure at last ..... I have 'topped up' my stock as some new pieces have sold ......... still working on the exhibition stand!

Whilst the weather holds I am going to get some mowing done before I take Anne to do her shopping ..........
