A hat trick of hat tricks

 Christmas brings an excess of tinsel, tiaras, turkey and tantrums and leaves very little time, or energy for creativity and folding of silks and sinamay and the stitching of flowers and feathers. Then came the February blues, not January in my case as I’m quite a fan of the leftovers and failed attempts at new beginnings. February brought one great big snotty slap in the face in the form of the flu. My first experience. My first, month long experience of resting, and sleeping, and sleeping and then resting, and Oh! the boredom! The only positive was the subsequent weight loss, which FYI, is sooo not worth it, so please if you can, always take vitamin C. But after February comes March, the best month of the year. Why I hear you ask? Why, it’s my birthday month! Yes, yes I do behave like a spoilt teenager and enjoy dragging out the celebrations for weeks on end and as result, it is now April. APRIL. I am a few pounds heavier and a few pounds poorer and clearly currently a failing blogger, so it is time to occupy my mind, my hands and my free moments with one of my favourite pastimes again… But in the mean time, here is a few snaps of 2k15 so far.

Against all the odds, I have managed to compose quite possibly the least glamorous post ever known to mankind. Due to my work-a-holic mentality and a rather poorly pup, the last three weeks have consisted of abnormally high applications of red lipstick,  a half hearted attempt at becoming a domestic goddess and a few too many takeaways. Not the luxurious silk flowers, diamanté finishes and picture perfect grins I had in mind. Alas! C’est la vie and all that jazz. So with my deepest apologies for my lack of jibber-jabber I am instead going to share with you something special. This three minute clip only shows a snippet of the memories created and friends made this summer when my younger brother, Thomas and I were lucky to explore Central and South America, and it is also these three minutes that keeps bringing the same smile to my face, time and time again. With thanks to Amanda Lee for creating such a masterpiece and thanks for bearing with me, more fascinators to come soon.
