Ludlow Bridge is falling down, falling down........

Thanks SO much for all your kind comments after my last post - I felt quite low for a day or two, even though the weather was great at times - but then yesterday I began to get a really scratchy throat and headache, so perhaps I was going down with something (or, because I was low, I began to go down with something, immune system knocked?) - anyway, don't feel 100% today, but I'm fighting it. Well, actually I'm drinking a glass of wine; I'm sure that'll help!

Did Ludlow market on Sunday and it was OK, but Ludlow's shops and markets trade is suffering at the moment as there's a complicated traffic diversion system in operation while the bridge into town is being repaired, the masonry having started to fall off  - it's going to be closed for a while apparently :(   -

If you're an IKEA Family card holder, you'll have got their Spring mag this week - there's a feature on a blogger - Desiree - http://vosgesparis.blogspot.com/ - it's a cool blog about her house in Amsterdam - if you like that minimalist, industrial style.  I'm sort of drawn to it, but I like colour too much! -

There's a feature on mixing real and artificial flowers too.....hm, not sure about that either -

Bought a cute table mat in Ludlow - in M and Co - looks a bit like Marrimekko? -

 Blogger has me defeated - sorry about lopsided loading!  Feel a bit worn out too - I shall go and have a hot bath / early night! 

(Oh, yes - daughter's dress fitting went well -



  1. Hope the head and throat are better tomorrow - I do believe the wine will help...Your daughter's dress looks stunning - how very exciting!

  2. Looks like some great goodies at Ludlow. I was going to do a table top sale on Sunday too but I pulled out as I didn't feel 100% either. Hope you're feeling better soon.
    I have mixed silk flowers with real blooms, it helps to 'fill out' the vase and they look fine as long as they're good quality ones.

  3. Hope your feeling better soon x

  4. Hope you feel better after your glass of wine and bath.
