The beds are made
Thursday was the day when the Welsh celebrate their patron saint - St David. I tell you this because once a year, despite having been born and bred and lived all my life in Yorkshire, I am adopted as an honorary Welsh woman and attend a St David's Day dinner with my good friend who is Welsh. The dinner was yesterday evening and I have to tell you that we had an excellent time!
There was good food - a three course dinner with leek and potato soup (of course) followed by a number of options for main course, including a delicious vegetarian option for me, followed by lemon tart, chocolate roulade or pavlova for dessert. I had the pavlova - trying hard to fool myself into believing that it was the healthy option because it was stuffed full of fresh fruits.
The evening ended with entertainment by a Welsh speaking vicar who had the most amazing singing voice - and a sing song for us all to join in with songs in both Welsh and English. The bunch of daffodils in the picture was given to me by my friend for having gone with her, though I assured her that it was no hardship at all.
Now ... onto minis ... I've finally finished the beds for the Georgian manor house. The first fits in the master bedroom and is dressed in silk and lace. I may yet pile some cushions on top of the pillows but for now this room is finished.
The second is the daughter's bed and this sits in the attic bedroom/nursery, which is not quite finished yet so no photographs of that room today.
But for now I'll leave you with more daffodils - in my garden this time. I love this time of year!!!
