Birthday Weekend

I have just come home from an amazing weekend in the Lake District - where I was celebrating my birthday!  Saturday's weather was glorious so we went on a walk to enjoy the fresh air and breathtaking views of the snowy fells.

We enjoyed gorgeous meals and several glasses of bubbly!  My birthday cake was beautiful - lemon sponge with lemon curd and buttercream - mmmmmmm!

My gifts included several Eve Lom products (my favourite!) and a weekend getaway for Kristian and I to stay at the Gilpin Lodge - a luxury country house hotel in the Lake District!  I am sure it will be much needed after Spring Fair!

We have been featured as part of the Spring Fair previews in Gifts Today and Gift Focus - two fantastic trade magazines!

I'm going to have the weekend off (well most of it anyway!) and try to rest in preparation for the chaotic madness that is preparing, packing and working at Spring Fair.  After Sunday, I won't have a day off for another 12 days!  

Hope you all have a great weekend. x
