Gutted. The black curtain fell down and lost us a whopping 24 marks. Came 4th at the RHS Tatton Show which is still incredible. Going home to fall asleep in the bath!! Pics to go on facebook soon. A huge huge HUGE thank you to Emma for all her brilliant and amazing help.

July 21st

Spent all day working on my competition pieces for my "summer wedding shop window" competition at RHS Tatton Show this weekend.
Will be collecting all the flowers at 8am tomorrow. Can't wait to see them, although slightly nervous incase I've ordered the wrong flowers in the wrong colours!! I've got an image in my head of what I'm trying to create but I may have to rapidly rethink if the flowers aren't right.
Sophie puppy has been very good today although still using my carpets and floors as a toilet :(

July 17th

Happy days. Spending all day today working on my seven wedding pieces for the competition at RHS Tatton Show next weekend. Got sore finger tips already from all the wiring! But it's coming along fine. Made the structures for the arch and the table centre. Five more structures to go!!! Ordered some gorgeous flowers. Can't wait to see them on Thursday. Sooooo exciting and sooooo scary all at the same time x

July 7th

It's now 3am and we're almost home from Greece. Nightmare journey. Got collected from our hotel at 3.30 only to be told we'd have to wait 4 hours at the airport which was only 10 mins away. Aaaarrrrggg. Finally got on plane but sat on the Tarmac for another hour with no air conditioning working. Now know how a chicken feels when it goes in the oven!!
Been travelling for 12 hours. Can't wait to climb into my own bed! X
