A Friday Flower & a trip to Blighty...

Well, well, well... it's Friday again... but not any old Friday, not for this gal anyway... it's going to be a Friday filled with frantic packing, planning, and tying up loose ends before I jet off to Blighty on Sunday... Yep, you heard right. Me and the gals are heading off to see mama and grandad back home.

All this talk of Spring, daffodils, and the green, green grass of England has led me to book a flight and go see it for myself! Seriously, there was a flight deal that just could not be passed up... so now I'm left wondering how I'm going to get me and the girls all sorted for Sunday evening... oh, and did I mention we have a date with Mary Poppins on Broadway this Saturday, too?? Talk about flying by the seat of your pants!

Anyhoo, I am giddy with the thought of being home for a few weeks, and so, I'm going to leave you lovelies while I go make lists, do laundry, and everything else in between...

Oh, and the kitchen cabinets... they'll be waiting for me on my return... half-finished, but, sometimes in life, you just have to act on opportunities when they land in your lap!
Hopefully, I'll be sharing my trip with you over the next few weeks... Mmmm, I can taste the chips and mushy peas already...
Ta ta for now.

    Best wishes and bon voyage,

  3. Hope the lovely weather continues for when you get here but even if it doesnt i am sure you wil have a great time.

  4. That will be wonderful for you to go home for a while. As you say, you have to grab these opportunities with both hands. I'll try to order in some good weather for you, although it's been beautiful down here in Devon for the past week or so, but still a bit chilly. Enjoy Mary Poppins and safe travels!

  5. Hi Laura!
    I'm so happy for you! Woohoo! You go and enjoy your family and the UK, I know you will, and take some pics (for me, being curious how you look at your own country). We saw Mary Poppins last x-mas in Holland, it was great! Your girls will enjoy it for sure, have fun!
