Goodbye April, hello May!

Posted on


Good evening from Fat Fairy Towers,

Really hope this finds you all keeping well and warm on this Sunday evening! I think like the rest of the country, we've had a very mixed bag of weather here in Warwickshire this weekend.  Some lovely sunshine and then, just as we are starting to get used to it, the rain quickly follows!  Plus it still seems very chilly for May.  Last Friday they did forecast heavy rain coming up from the south-west but the day started bright and sunny here, so I took a chance and pegged the washing out..... Once at work and in my office, I could see (from our vantage point on the 6th floor) the storm clouds looming over Coventry way.... Lucky enough they passed us by and when I got home, the washing was nice + dry.  Now, I think you just can't beat drying the washing outside on a lovely day, it has a totally different 'smell' to it compared to being dried indoors - and, no, I don't have a tumble dryer either!

Well, as the title of my post says, goodbye April and hello May!  Here we are then with a 1/3rd of the year now behind us.  Someone told me a few weeks ago - when I complained about how fast the time is going - that apparently 2014 is the Chinese Year of the Horse!  This, of course, would make perfect sense as a horse is very much a creature of speed - so at least that does explain something....  

As I type this Blog to you all, I am very aware that 18 weeks today, will be my son's wedding day! And, by the way the time is disappearing fast, that will be here before we know it!  The big day will be up in Preston at Beeston Manor, they will have a civil ceremony at the hotel, followed by the reception. Just hope the weather improves and that on Sunday 21st September, we have a lovely, warm, late summer day.  It will be slightly tinged with sadness for the much loved + missed family members who won't be there to share in this lovely day.  I'm thinking of my much loved + missed Mum - my two's very special Nan and also my brother. The bride will be missing her granddad who passed away just over a year ago.  No doubt, at some point, we will raise a glass to those loved ones no longer with us.

Well, what have we been up to here at Fat Fairy HQ since our last Blog I hear you say?  Well..... quite a lot I think!  Firstly, I've been busy making lots of our gorgeous Gemstone jewellery to restock Brackley Rocks.  For those of you who've not come across Brackley Rocks, it's a lovely crystal, spiritual + holistic shop run by the lovely Dianne down in Brackley, Northants.  It's in the main high street so you can't really miss it.  Dianne has very kindly been stocking and selling Fat Fairy Jewellery for about 2 yrs now and every now + again, we like to pop down to see her and restock.  It's always a lovely visit as Dianne is always pleased to see us, we have a lovely catch up on all the local gossip! Also the latest issue of the lovely Mosaic magazine is also now out which I distribute here in Rugby for my friend Beth who edits and publishes Mosaic. Brackley Rocks also stocks this lovely magazine, so this was a chance as well for me to leave some of the latest edition with Dianne.  If anyone local (or even not so local....) would like a copy, please just email me and I will pop one in the post to you ( I've got some lovely photo's of our latest items which are now for sale at Brackley Rocks but will post them in my next Blog.  I'm going to try and Blog each day for the next week (oh yes that's likely I can hear you say.....) as, for some reason, I find that easier to bring you all up to date than sitting down and writing a very long Blog.....!

Wishing you all a happy, peaceful + productive week,

with love + blessings from Fat Fairy Jewellery
