I went AWOL from blogland.

Sorry I've been rather absent this last week, but its going to continue I'm afraid. We spent the last weekend at my aunt and uncles in lovely Shropshire, generally relaxing, walking and sleeping. When we got back the parents were here, looking after the cats for us, and they go home tomorrow. They've been up here because they want to move nearer to me (aww how sweet), because we're getting married, and the likelihood is that we shall live here for most of our lives. I'm an only child, and a 5 hour drive to see my parents isn't fun. So anyway, they've been looking at houses etc, and are waiting for *the call* just now from the estate agents. So when they go tomorrow, I'm following them back down the country to clear out some of my stuff that still lives with them. To be honest, I'm not really looking forward to it, their house was where I was born, and although I've lived here seven years now, maybe eight- I don't remember - our village is still my home. I know its just bricks and mortar, I'm just very sentimental. I'm not good at goodbyes, but I've got to say some. So I'm afraid that I won't be here for most of the weekend either. I'll still be checking in I suspect, but i don't expect i'll post anything much.

In the meantime, heres a photo from the weekend...

Also, completely irrelevantly, if I were to get Rosalie a wedding present, it would have to be these. They seem to have tons of cute things, I just found them in a magazine ages ago and went to get the link for this. too too cute.


  1. OMG those are just too cute, I must have them! I might treat myself to them as a wedding present, thank you for thinking of me :) also beautiful photograph from your weekend.

  2. s'alright, I see tea themed gifts now and immediately think of you! :) they do a cupcake one too, and you can buy them individually too if you just want cups.

  3. Oh too cute! I now want to go and play with bumblebees and heather!

  4. What is it with Shropshire today? I am staying just above ludlow with my parents and i just arrived from another blog and they had been here too. Your photo is lovely and yes i too will be clearing stuff out of my room. I have managed to put it off for years!

  5. I know, I noticed you had been there, I was in All stretton, just above Church Stretton, so I think about 20 minutes off where you are? its beautiful around there, I don't think I really appreciated it as a kid. That photo was from the top of the long mynd. My aunt lives in the shadow of caer caradoc.
    I'm off to the parents today, and really not much looking forward to it.
