Things What Have Happened Thursday (a late WOW #17)

Hello there - it appears to be Thursday today. Hmm how did that happen? This week has been all over the place - I don't know who I am, let alone what day of the week it is!! With the bank holiday it seems everything has just sort of gone to pot!!

I received my first custom order this week, which was so much fun to work on. Nina asked me to create a tattoo-style brooch for her friend who is getting married soon. Nina has received it, and sent me a message on twitter saying that she loved it! Yay!! So very soon I will be listing the brooch and a similar style in my Etsy Shop for you to customise and purchase for yourself! Wehey!

So what's been occurring this week? We went for a little walk along the river Petterill on Monday, where we found some little white flowers (no idea what they were) and some pretty cool graffiti.

Love this little caterpillar dude!

On Tuesday my Mum took the day off work, and we went to Newcastle to look for wedding dresses (eeeeek)! After a quick lunch stop we headed straight for Monsoon and commenced the trying on! And guess what? I think I found THE dress! It is so beautiful, and really unusual. I think I'll order it this week - how exciting! And it's well under my £400 budget too - so does that mean I can get a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes? No? Ah well!!

Then on Wednesday my dear godmother came to Carlisle for a girl's day. She comes up a couple of times a year and spoils me rotten!! We went for lunch at The Shabby Scholar, a cafe-bar-bistro type of place in Carlisle. I'd heard that the tapas was good, but we settled on a burger (for Penny) and the nachos (for me) - they food was lovely, but we had to giggle when the bill was presented to us in a glass-topped wooden box! Quite pretentious! Apart from that, it was enjoyable and I would go back.

We then went off for a bit of shopping, and I was well and truly spoilt. I got a cute dress and cardigan from Red Herring at Debenhams, and a couple of tops in New Look, as well as a beautiful set of notecards for #PostCircle (Penny shares my stationery obsession!!)!

The dress is a really pale pink with white stitching over the bodice and round the hem. And I've been eyeing up that blue jumper for weeks!

I also received my third Liebster award from the lovely Sara at Color.Paint.Create! Thanks Sara! I think everyone is sick of me waffling on about myself, but here are the links to my last nominations: Liebster Award No 1, Liebster Award No 2 and Versatile Blogger Award.

So it's been quite busy here. Normal service should be resumed next week!

Thanks for reading
