Don't Hold Your Breath ...

Don't hold your breath, but I may soon be back to blogging!

It's been far too long, but soon I should have more free time and be able to bring you all up to date with what's been going on since January 2012! Suffice to say that 2012 was a good year in general, but I made a life-changing decision in December and have now sold Dairy House Antiques. Many of you will already know this, but some of you 'far flung followers' may not. Two of the DH dealers, Trixie Hewlett of The Vintage Bothy blog and Debbie Jeffery are the new owners and took over the reins on 1 March 2013.

Paul has been in hospital several times since December 2012 and has, today, been discharged after a 6½-week stint in Yeovil Hospital. All is well but it's been a bit of a rollercoaster since his first stay just before Christmas. Onward and upward now, hopefully.

Now I no longer have the responsibilities of the day-to-day running of Dairy House (although I do still have a unit there) I have rejoined the Fairs circuit. I am signed up for a year of Shepton Mallet Antiques Fairs at the Bath & West Showground, some of the Vintage Bazaar events and similarly the Vintage & Handmade Fairs. I have also taken a unit at the Antiques Bazaar in Crewkerne. It's so long since I blogged that I've forgotten how to set up links, but no doubt I'll sort that out in due course.

I shall be spending more time at home, although that doesn't seem to have happened yet, taming our wayward garden that has had very little attention in the 5 years that I was involved with Dairy House, and hopefully spending more time with Hannah and Florence. It was Florence's birthday last week. Where the last 3 years have gone I have no idea but gone they have, and she has now started pre-school.

I hope to be back again soon with photos and more news but in the meantime if any of you are still following this almost defunct blog I thank you and trust you are all fighting fit and enjoying life!
