I am really not sure what has happened to March so far - I absolutely did not intend to not blog for two weeks but here I am with a great big gap in my posting.
Well for a month that came roaring in like a lion it is now beginning to look a good deal more lamb like. This weekend was wonderful and I was so happy that we were visiting friends in Dorset as it gave me a chance to take huge lungfuls of sea air. Malvern is very beautiful but I do so love the sea and feel very landlocked if I don't get to see it every so often. I love it in all its guises but yesterday when it shimmered and sparkled for us we talked about a quote from that lovely children's story "Anne of Green Gables";
“Look at that sea, girls--all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn't enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.”
I have been trying to post a monthly to do list and so half way through here is March's...
1) At the end of the month we have a family wedding in Donegal, Ireland. This will be the first Cunningham wedding in many a year and people will be gathering from many corners of the world. I am VERY excited.
2) I need an outfit! Cue much looking at Toast and Cos. Does anyone else have any brilliant suggestions? I think I am going to have to make an emergency dash to London or Birmingham this weekend to buy something. As someone who runs a minimal wardrobe I do not want to buy a 'wedding outfit' (the idea makes me shudder) I need something that I can wear lots, preferably to work. Am thinking navy dress. Too boring?
3) I have seen a couple of people mention wild garlic recently. Hip hip! I was especially taken with this post and will certainly be trying Emma's scones out.
4) My garden needs some attention - I have started thinking about this space and am planning a few new planting ideas - perhaps there will be more on this as things develop...
