40 Days & 40 Nights

Having given up sweets for Lent (38 days & counting!) I am starting to crave other things, at the moment its chocolate. I'm not sure if this is helping with the 'being good' & giving something up just to replace it with something else!
Also I find myself day dreaming about a rather expensive suitcase but its pink! I'm thinking that if I manage to go without Sweets for 40 days then I might be able to do it forever & put the money towards said suitcase. It is beautiful tho!
Back to work related has been a day of Wedding Consultations. I'm totally gobsmacked by the amount of people asking me to do their Weddings - thanks guys.

St Valentines Day

Well I managed to survive my second Valentines Day in the shop.
Throughout the run up to the 14th of February I was being told mixed reviews of of Valentines Day falling on a Saturday - the majority being that it won't be very good. But I had a very good one considering the state of the countrys finances at the minute, better than last year anyway!
As a Florist I'm not meant to say this.....but I hate Valentines Day!! Its a lot of stress for one day & never seem to understand why Gentlemen seem quite happy to pay for a dozen Red Roses 51 weeks of the year but for one week they rant & rave at how expensive it is - like its my fault I'm charging them more!
Anyway I'm glad its over & would like to thank all my customers, old & new, who supported me this year.

Flying High

I was asked to create a tribute for a gentleman who liked to watch war films. The final idea was
an Aeroplane & a Lancaster Bomber was the Plane of choice.
