Every year I am amazed by the detail of the Passion Flowers in my garden. A spot of Blackberry picking on the way back from walking the dogs down the beach. The summer holidays flew past way too quickly and before I knew it, it was Charlie's first day as a Year 8 student. Poppy making herself comfortable for a nap on OH. Afternoon tea with Baukjen, not literally of course, just the new season look book. A clients pedicure and shellac for her early September holiday to Maderia.
Mid September saw the first roast dinner we have eaten since before summer. Pretty pink cupcakes I had made for a friends baby shower. My first new season purchase from Boden. Albert has taken to thinking he is a parrot and perches on my shoulder quite frequently now. Who could forget September is Fashion Week month? Majestic Gladioli make me smile.
The Birthday Girl. Claudia and her boyfriend outside Claridges. Finally the bag which was bought back in June and kept hidden safety. Pretty pink ballet slippers in Penhaligons window, Burlington Arcade. A second meet-up with Michelle aka @pradajunky over from New Zealand. She came to mine to meet the Pugs the other week, it was so lovely to meet her after we had been tweeting for three and half years. Flowers outside Claridges.
September is Claudia's birth month and as most of you know she was 21 this year! It was the longest birthday known to man with present opening's before she left for Ibiza. All the instagraming on her actual birthday at Ocean Club on the white isle, then after 9 days she came home and it all started again with the remainder of the presents and the celebratory lunch at Claridges the following day. Quite frankly I have been left exhausted, oh and penniless!
How was your September?
