Joules

In to the potting shed

In to the potting shed

So, the time has come. For a break. Yes, this is my last post for 2018. And it’s also my last post before I start something new. When I started this blog back in 2014, it was without much of a plan or an intended direction. It was simply a way to keep writing, to keep learning, and to keep my brain ticking over until the boys started school and I could possibly think about returning to work.

Mother's Day the Joules way

Mother's Day the Joules way

Normally, when writing, I sit at my laptop with a hint of an idea and see where it takes me. I have a start and sometimes an anecdote or two, but it's rare that I have a middle or an ending in mind.

Today, I have so much to tell you about my Mother's Day trip to Watergate Bay Hotel in Cornwall with Joules, and my final sentence is definitely going to be along the lines of it being an incredible experience and how lucky I feel to have been invited, that I don't really know where to start.

It's hard to put what an amazing time we had in to words.

But I need to.

JoulesXDFS ... a sneak peek behind the scenes of the new collection

My painting skills may not have been celebrated and my dreams of joining the Joules design team may not have been realised, but I had such a fantastic time on my lightning trip to Derbyshire to take a sneak peek at the new Joules and DFS collection prior to its launch.

Let me tell you all about it.
