Too Busy to Blog!

I’ve been a bit absent from blogging lately and I just wanted to quickly check in, to say that I’m still here! The last few months have been a bit crazy. So I thought I’d write a quick chatty catch up post, to keep you updated.

Ginger Cake from a 1950s RecipeMy kids take up a huge amount of time, especially over the summer and I’ve just been really busy with everyday life and other writing work. We’ve also been really busy trying to choose a high school for Jessica. I can’t quite believe she’s in her last year of primary school! Where does the time go? While I’m on the subject, I cannot believe how much homework kids get these days?! I wish the government would let them be kids, rather than learning machines!

The Viceroys Daughters by Anne De CourcyI will be back to regular posting eventually. I have countless blog post drafts that just need finishing and way too many new vintage dresses that need to be photographed. I also went to quite a few vintage events over the summer and I can’t wait to share all my pictures with you.

Since turning 30 last year, I’ve been reminding myself of all my crazy ambitions and I’m so ready to work hard towards them. Hopefully everything will start coming together soon and I can tell you all about it.

I’ll have vintage food and drink related features in every issue, so if you like that side of the blog, go and buy a copy. In the October issue I’ve shared a review of Betty Blythe vintage tearoom and 5 of my favourite gin cocktails. As magazines work a few months ahead, I’ve been working on my Christmas articles and it’s been really fun getting all festive.

    Thank you very much for the thoughtful update, sweet dear. That necklace is just beautiful! Did you make it yourself? (Don’t feel like you have to answer is doing so would spill the beans on anything that you’re keeping under wraps for the time being.)

    Wishing you and your family all an excellent autumn!

    ♥ Jessica
