making a future...

This past week has been one of those weeks that just felt like such a long time to get through it, yet now, when I look back, it has passed by in a moment!
I am busy, as most Moms are at this time of year, tying up all those lose ends before the big six week break. Its my first year that I will be working around the children and all the multitasking that it involves. Added into this I had the opportunity to sit my next level English exam, it was all a little last minute so with the hottest weekend ahead of me, a weekend sailing and socialising on the cards, I gave it up to sit at home at my laptop and study. The good news is I passed so it was so worth it... My boys are so proud of me as they know how much my dyslexia interferes with my confidence. I have had a few very exciting orders to work on and the thoughts of summer are having an impact on my creative ideas. I am all about beach huts, water and cup cakes at the moment...
Things move on here at the home of Dotty Red and my thoughts venture on to my future plans. Its all very exciting and still at the seedling stage and therefore I am a little unsure about how much I can share here until the plans either grow into a healthy future or wilt. I am positive that with lots of love, care and nurturing, the right amount of water and the glow of the sunshine, things might start to develop.
Whilst all my ideas rumble around in my head, and I fill books up with words, ideas and drawings...I have needed to update my stock a little, some fabulous ribbon, can you imagine how excited I was to open a box to such prettiness, it really is the simple things in life that make me happy, also a new line in tags arrived for me to play with.

Rosy the puppy is still proving to have a very positive impact on my little family, joy seems to fill the family home, not to mention the odd little puddle!!! Laughter and lots of "No Rosy" as we start the puppy training. Eight more days and she can go out for her first walk, we are all looking forward to this, especially Rosy, she has endless energy and is keeping us on our toes.

This weekend we are off to a seaside break for some much needed downtime. What ever you are up to this weekend I hope the weather remains warm and sunny and your time is filled with moments of calm.

Fantastic news about your exam, Suzie! That must be a great confidence boost for you.

You're going to have so much more fun once Rosy puppy is out and about in the big wide world - not long now :o)

Hope your beach weekend was perfect.
