A Robot, a Camel and a Nutter

Do you like my new Christmas decorations

 I especially like the camel as he looks a bit like Tetley:)

I'm going to be so Lush darlings x

Went for an interview yesterday not the usual type of one on one discussion, it was a group interview which was much more fun. 

First of all we all sat on the floor in the stock room and we'd been told to bring something which would represent our personality. It was interesting seeing what people had brought there were globes, makeup brushes, gig tickets and much more, I took a picture of Tetley, of course what else :), and used it to describe how I love to learn new things and how I have met a whole new set of people since joining the horsey world.

 We were then split into groups and each group given a product and some paper to write down ideas about it. We then  had to do a demo of the product which in our case was a Hottie massage bar  

It was certainly a different format to interviews I had done before but made sense for the job type and was fun. 

Oh yes and each candidate received a bubble wand to take home which was good. I used mine tonight and had a nice soak whilst listening to Bon Iver. 

Anyway I received a call earlier and got through the interview so I go for a shop floor trial a week on Saturday. Wish me luck xx

Watch out for the sultanas they're nothing but trouble x

I cleaned and  re-organised my little larder today, how long I wonder until there is spilt flour and sugar and the odd sultana lurking around in a corner waiting to cause trouble . x

And a picture of my shopping bags just because I like them x

The heart of the home they say and I must agree

If my home is my empire then my kitchen is definatley the capital, it all goes on here and I can get lost for days.

It's my bakery and restaurant but also my office, photographic studio, music room, dance studio, sewing room. it may not be large but it certainly packs a lot in like a Tardis it seems bigger once your inside. It's the one room that hasn't been renovated (no money) but the walls and unit fronts get painted regularly so we make do.

Some of my favorite times have been spent in here, with friends at the table while I cook us something good for tea or make up cocktails for us to try, one oft requested is Vodka with cherry cordial and ice it's just lovely or we can be partial to a Mojito in the summer.

This room seems to have a magical attraction for me, sometimes I'll try to leave several times only to be drawn back in I'll find myself mindlessly wandering back after only just leaving,

My miniature larder

if I had a bed in here I'd probably never leave at all

I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself. Maya Angelou

They say home is where the heart is and that's definitely true for me.

My home is my best friend it brings me comfort and makes me happy and I can spend endless happy hours wandering its rooms arranging and rearranging engrossed and distracted by the many lovely thing contained within
