Bits and Pieces from a busy week

Wow, can't believe how busy I've been this week, the only sad point was no photography which always makes me feel sad, not to worry though my diary is now bursting until October, first big wedding of the season next weekend at the Cathedral and I am so excited, lots of cool time spent walking around Newcastle for the wedding portraits as well do should be brilliant, Heather I hope your nerves are calm, don't worry it will all be fine :)

The children all went to stay at their grandparents on Friday so Paul and I had some precious us time, great because we celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary on the 14th! We went to Houghton Hall Garden Centre and bought loads of scrummy food from the farm shop and most of the bits and pieces we needed to finish landscaping the garden. It surely is great when your hubby is a gardener and yesterday he finished the new back garden complete with Koi pond which uses a Hydroponic filter to keep the water clean and circulating, it's a really nifty green idea! I'm hoping that the pond will draw wildlife into our small city garden and the first step will be rehoming Arthur koi in his new pond as soon as the water is clear enough, joining him will be his two large goldfish friends Fred and Bob!!

Last weekend Hubby and I went to the movies to see Pathology, I felt completely tense the whole way through but hubby enjoyed it! Hubby and I rarely agree on movies so we make concessions for each other although I'm not even sure whether I'll get him to take me to see "Sex in the city" when it opens!

One business thingy, August 2009 bookings have really started to heat up so if you're marrying then and are thinking about having me as your wedding photographer call me quickly to secure your date or click through to my contact page!

We've had some great meals out this week but one of our favourites remains The Badger in Ponteland plus Dobbies the garden centre is just next door! Can you tell we visit a lot of garden centres. My favourite is probably Heighley Gate up in Northumberland because there's just so much to see and do there.

Paul is off gardening for clients today and then he's seeing an allotment at lunchtime, I'm crossing my fingers that he gets one because he would love it so much and he could grow his own plants, probably the next step for his landscaping/gardening business to go, have you heard of Meandering Gardens yet?

I have decided that I am going to be rebranding as Mandy Charlton Photography but it's going to take a while to do this and will be done step by step, stay tuned for more news!!

I'm having a pyjama day today seeing as all my weekends work was called off, conserving all my energy for Heather and Joels wedding next weekend ;)
