I'm back!

Hello all, I really have missed you but I'm finally back!

I've missed reading and commenting on your blogs too, who know that blogging would become such a big part of my life and that I would miss my 'community' when I had to take time off.

Well Notorious Kitsch finally closed it's doors on Sunday, it was more weird than sad. I'm actually someone who loves change and loves moving on to the next thing so actually it wasn't as traumatic to me as it might be for some, once I've made the decision to move on, I want to do it and do it NOW ha ha! Anyway it was strange but ok, a bit sad and some things I will miss but there is a lot that I won't! I cannot wait to get my dining room back, which has been a fitted stock room for soooo long, OH and I have already stood in there wondering what colour we'll paint it!!

So what have I been up to?

Well first up, closing your business up takes up far more time than I thought it would in fact I still have things to wrap up, I thought it would be a slow decline but orders soared in the final week!

Bye bye Notorious Kitsch, you've been both fab and a trial!







I've had fun but I've also had stress!!

So what next?

Well you all know that I'm already doing some work for the marvellous Miss L Fire and Shellys Shoes, this carries on and I know how lucky I am to be talking about shoes to earn money!!

I have to say I'm personally keeping my eye on these, they're currently in the sale and I want them, so I'm saving and praying my size doesn't sell out before I can afford them!!


Well apart from them I have a couple of new clients that I'm working for, I am really very very lucky!

First up is Robin and Colette who run the Rhythm Riot and Maddy's Jiving School, I've know Robin and Colette forever, I get on with them very well personally and have worked with them before anyway but in different formats, they used to book our band for years, I was compere at the Rhythm Riot for a few years, then of course when I wasn't working there I was a regular punter, then I had a stall there!! So I've worked with them a lot over the years, I'm really looking forward to working with them in yet another capacity and can't wait to really get started!! I went along to their dance classes for the first time ever a couple of weeks ago, it was fab, they really are good at explaining it all, I was amazed how good some of the dancers were!

Then yesterday I had a meeting with another new client Shona from Heyday! I met Shona in the chip shop at Hemsby, we often laugh about that, cos once we started chatting, we haven't stopped since!! We talked loads about stuff yesterday, plans for Heyday, what she has planned coming up, it's all very exciting. She already has a great team doing stuff for her and I'm hoping I'll be able to slot in nicely adding to the already talented team. I also got to see some styles she has at the planning stage, so blumming exciting! 

One new thing that I saw for the first time is the stunning suit she's now selling, I inspected it from top to bottom, well you know I'm very particular!! It's fabulous, the detailing is lovely all the way to the covered buttons. 



Cute eh?

Apart from all that exciting news, I had a proper day out on Tuesday, Paul and I went to see the Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera exhibition at Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, it was of course fabulous and I always come away from seeing anything to do with Frida Kahlo, wishing I lived in Mexico or wanting to paint my house in fabulous deep blues! 

Here are two of the pictures in the exhibition!



We then had a rather unsuccessful visit to West Wittering, where we parked Paul just couldn't access anything so we drove away, however we went to Chichester Marina and had lunch there which was rather lovely!

I'm afraid I didn't take any pictures on my day out, I know, terrible but it was my first 'day out' or off in ages so I just enjoyed!!

Anyway sorry for such a lengthy post, so much to say, so much to do, glad I'm back and all that, hope you are all well, I'll be back regularly commenting and saying hello on your blogs again now, I had over 400 blogs posts waiting for me, I just couldn't catch up!

Good to see you back!

Tasha said...

Yay, great to see you back too! Sounds like some fun stuff coming 'round the bend for you.

I love Frida too (I assume you've seen the fantastic movie?). We have a coffee table book on amazing Mexican homes and it makes me so envious every time I open the cover, it's dangerous!

Yes Tasha, we watch it quite often, love it all, the colours, the style, I could so easily go down that track!

Miss Magpie said...

welcome back, I'm so relieved the final day wasn't to traumatic for you and good luck with all the new projects.

Hooray! Glad you are back, and feeling positive about things. And it sounds like you have some very exciting irons in the fire too! Good for you :))

I hope as one door shuts another opens and it appears you have so many great connections and opportunities waiting to happen.
I am sorry about Paul not being to access anything where you parked. I just spent a few days with my brother, who had a bad motorbike accident a few years ago and I know how much has to go into finding accessible places. I realize then how much I can take for granted.
Glad to hear all is well! I've missed you.
