breakfast

A lovely start to the day..

by Helen on April 8, 2014

I woke up this morning feeling happy and energised – the sun was shining!!  It’s amazing how much difference this makes!  I leapt out of bed(!) and was instantly inspired to finish arranging my collection of vintage schoolroom posters.  I inherited these from my Mum who was an infant school teacher for many years and I think my workroom wall is the perfect place to display them …..

It’s all looking very cheerful, although I don’t think I’ll ever be a minimalist and that organised chaos is probably the best I can hope for!  Then, even before breakfast, I sewed a little of my new top – the first dressmaking project I’ve undertaken for many years…..

I’ve chosen a pretty Rose & Hubble floral print and the pink gingham is the facings.    I discovered a lovely easy pattern – the Esme Top from Sew Liberated which I thought would be perfect to begin with.   All this early morning work made me feel hungry though, so I switched off my sewing machine and headed downstairs for breakfast……

I do find that I need plenty of energy at the beginning of the day – those naughty newfies take a lot of looking after!  But pre-wedding diet plans dictate that although pancakes are fine (cooked in non-stick pan without oil) golden syrup and/or Nutella definitely isn’t.  So it’s lemon juice, no sugar for me!  

But not for my furry friend!  Sorry Miss Daisy, no tasty scraps for you this morning!  Now I’m hoping the sunny weather will continue – I have plans for rose planting later on ….

So Rosie can walk under an archway of roses on her wedding morning – which isn’t too far off now – and there’s still so much to do.  It’s a good thing I am feeling energetic this morning!
