lovely, lovely, lovely!


a long time ago when i was but a humble shopkeeper a customer arrived regularly that always, always lifted my spirits....
i knew instantly that her soul was true and good...
i knew that i liked her a lot....
i knew that we had an awful lot in common....
i knew that i wanted to keep in touch with her when we moved.....




whatever time of day she arrived we would happily chat whilst she shopped, always with ease and always with laughter...
often she would arrive after closing and i would stay open just for her - this was never a chore even after a long day....
i was not known to offer this service to many :)




anyhoo
this girl with her kind heart has visited us here at Sea House and we are so glad x
we had a week of eating, chatting, laughing, thrifting, eating some more and just relaxing...
we watched as our visitor adjusted to the climate, the vast skies, the huge sea view, the hounds and my rather speedy driving (although i had slowed down considerably!)
our hearts gladdened as we could see this extremely hard working soul unwind, as the slow relaxed pace of life at Sea House seeped in to her.... she was very soon in step with us x




now she has gone the house is once again quiet - Stephen has noted the lack of happy chatter around the kitchen table as he works....
i have noticed the lack of girlie friendship :(

but i will not feel gloomy
oh no
instead i will rejoice in the fact that the girl who breezed through Cupcake's shop door one sunny day is now a very special friend...
a very special friend indeed x

back soon with news of Cricket - he has been very busy growing and growing and growing!

Gosh! How lovely to be described in this way. I had the most fabulous break-I love, love, loved the scenery and so glad I took the advice to do the 109 mile bus ride on the last leg of a very long trip as advised by Tracy.
All this and to have such a warm welcome and such lovely chats.
I am so glad I made this trip and found the Cupcakes at home!
Friendships are so very precious x :-)) x :-))

Many people walk in and out of our lifes but true friends leave footprints on our hearts.
It sounds like you've found a true friend in her. I'm sure she misses you to honey.
Bet it won't be long before she's back for another visit at Sea house.
I know I'd have to make my booking before I'd even left lol
Hugs,
Catherine x
