After spending the morning shaking my head over colours and prints and combinations of fabrics in preparation for my first big show in June (which is only TWO months away) and an exhibition in July (only 3 months away!!) Bella and I went out after lunch to Red Brick Mill for a hot chocolate and apple crumble.
I don't get to spend a lot of time just with Bella, and at the moment it's really needed, because Lily's problems are pretty hard for Bell to have to cope with, and some time out to just chat about 9 year old girl stuff is really necessary.
I love Red Brick Mill - it not only houses the only northern branch of Heals, but now also has Made.com, and a vintage section, plus a cafe on the top floor. Our favourite bit though is the wallpaper that you can colour in!
This evening we all had dinner at our favourite place to eat in town and then after the girls went to bed Jim and I started an American Horror Story marathon, thanks to discovering it on Netflix. The result of which is that I will no longer be able to go down in to our cellar.....
Tomorrow I have to go back to trying to decide on fabrics.
