Hello, my friends! My apologies that posts have been rather few and far between this week; with my sister here there have been other things occupying my time (silly conversations, baking cookies, watching A Hard Day’s Night, etc.). Next week shall be back to normal (and hopefully some exciting posts)!

What are your plans for this weekend? Sadly, my sister is leaving this weekend, and I daresay I’ll be a bit down about that. But we’ve also got some plans for the long Fourth of July weekend; visits to the beach, bbq’s and fireworks! (Hopefully no rain will ruin our plans; we’ve had torrential downpours and flooding all week!) Even though loud noises tend to startle me, I do love the Fourth for a good fireworks display! Sailor Husband is quite excited about his plans revolving around fireworks he’s buying, while I’m completely content to just have a package of sparklers! lol.

Have a splendid weekend (and a Happy Fourth to my US readers!)!

I think watching A Hard Day’s Night is a wonderful way to occupy your time! I know that film by heart.
I’m going to be doing a little bit of baking this weekend but that’s about it! It’s too cold to do anything much. Hope you have a lovely weekend!

wow, that flickr inspiration is lovely.. makes me want to wear a girly white dress. I’ve been on the lookout for a beautiful lacy white blouse, and this pushes that desire even further.

glad you have had a great time with your sister so far and took a bit of a blogging break! enjoy the weekend :)

Gorgeous! And yay for a hair tutorial. Love that pattern cover too. I was supposed to be going to two parties tonight but looks like that’s out as my roof’s leaking and have to sort that… Dull. GOing to the opera and a comedy thing tomoro tho! And the sun’s shining, so all in all happy :-D A blogging break is fine, as long as you’re having a whale of a time! Xxxc
