It’s always a surprise to me that February disappears in a flash as it’s only a couple of days less than four of our months anyway but it appears to have flown away!
It’s been really rather nice and has been punctuated with little nuggets of loveliness like…
My gorgeous niece’s engagement party (no date as yet…), Joe’s safe return from his school ski trip (phew!).
Maddie’s braces coming off (yaaay!), my dance classes resuming (and my ankle seems all good).
My invite to The Brit Awards (friends in high places).
Afternoon tea with the girls at Fortnum and Mason (sweet treats… diet starts Monday!), wearing my gorgeous Onjenu dress, and Tom’s first work experience day with John Lewis (utterly thrilled).
All rather super I would say to have those nestling in and amongst all of the usual family life so it’s a thank you from me to the lovely February!
Now, March! You are like a surprise package awaiting us all… full of promise and promising to be full!
It’s my birthday in March and I do believe that the month you are born in allows you “ownership” of that month, ha! Though I know I am sharing her with tonnes of you March babies too.
I can’t help but think it’s a lovely month for a birthday and for me it’s going to be one to celebrate… more to come about that in my next blog. I’m definitely thinking that a competition may be appropriate so that you have the chance to celebrate with me. What would you love as a prize or prizes I wonder… you never know I may be able to magic up something marvellous. You see “Don’t ask, don’t get” is always a motto I have deployed through life and when I think back to the time I spoke on air about my dream of having a gypsy caravan, saying if anyone had one would they possibly “pass it on” to me as I would love it forever. Well, it happened, I asked and I “got” and it makes me truly grateful and incredibly happy looking out and seeing her in my garden every single time.
March of course means a new Beauty offer of the month and whilst Maddie was my guest vlogger about Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer, February’s Beauty Pick of the Month, (thank you all for your truly lovely comments about her by the way) Sarah Chapman’s Overnight Facial as our Supersize of the Month is somewhat mature for her little 12 year old skin… so looks like it’ll be Mummy’s turn. I shall be filming a little piece about it in my next blog and as March is so almost here I had better get a wriggle on!
It may not be very long I warn you as its gotta be the quickest easiest “get ready for bed” you will ever do!
I shall leave you with a little collection of my lovely February,
With much love to you all, Claire xxx
