phew a busy summer

hello lovely people, what a busy summer! while the rain has poured in England we welcmoed a new member to our family. meet Dotty.

lovely dotty came to live with us in memory of mr Hs lovely mum who sadly died at much too young an age last year. He received a small inheritance and said he wanted to spend it on something that was all about making memories, (i stopped being churlish and muttering carpets for our sadly neglected abode and embraced the idea - with a bit of trepidation).
Anyway Dotty has whisked us away to France for almost a month, and i have to say ot was most relaxing, she had one large temper tantrum on the le mans ring rd, when we thought we might all be coming home, however the lovely and somewhat baffled people at the vw garage in le mans put her right and off we went.

she is going to be having a bit of a make over as all i managed before we went on hol were some new curtains from one of the designs  in our new collection.
she has a bit of a storm cloud interior so we went for polka dot in cherry and faded roses in cherry to cheer her up a bit .
anyway more about france and our inspiring trip later,
au revoir for now!


  1. Dotty is just perfect! and a whole month away - I am green with envy ;0) Can't wait to see Dotty's 'Hardaker & Pope' makeover!

  2. ha, we are a bit hampered by the stormcloud grey floor to ceiling carpet - with the odd highlight of poo brown, !!! some and say hello if you see us in stroud (or by the side of the rd waiting for the AA truck!!)
