This week has been a bit of a strange one — mixed blessings, if you like.
It started badly. Monday saw an awful turn of events for a much loved family member. I am not going to say anything more, apart from it was a sad day and there were not many smiles in our house, that day.
Tuesday was better.
One of my bests (one the Twinkles ‘guidemothers‘) popped in — totally unannounced — for a coffee. I love village life and one of my favourite things is people banging on the door/window (often at really inconvenient moments!) and stopping in for a chat and a cuppa. And that is written with no sarcasm, I genuinely do love it!
Luxury Party Invitations
Wednesday gave me one of the best testimonials I’ve ever had from a customer, since I set up Mooks Design, back in 2008!
I had been commissioned to create some luxury party invitations for a client’s daughter’s 18th birthday party. Quite possibly the poshest party invitations I’ve ever seen; or made — and the feedback I received was glowing.
Here are a few pics:
She’s asked for a pocketfold personalised party invitation; which included a reply card and info card. But she also wanted each invitation wrapped in tissue paper in a box.
I’m used to creating luxury personalised birthday invitations but these were on another level!
It took a lot of work to put them together, but the feedback was so good. Makes all the hard work so worth it.
Thursday: Pilates Day!
Thursdays are generally always good as I have an hour to myself each week!
I love being a wife, a mother, a business owner, but to have a dedicated hour that is just for me — on a weekly basis — is priceless; and much needed!
We had another village friend pop in (unannounced) for a coffee, after school; and I also celebrated my blog’s 2nd birthday!
Today is quiet.
The sky is grey (it’s almost dark outside!) and we don’t have much planned at all. I’m supposed to be working — and trying to get my work website up and running — but Twitter has been a glorious distraction this morning and, as a result, I’m writing this blog post!
The babies are currently napping and this afternoon I know I’m going to have two grumpy little men to entertain as the weather is so wet and horrible.
