'The Beekeeper' Collection Available Now |  Free UK Returns

Well, the exhibition is over and I was looking forward to a quiet week in the studio; a few bits and bobs to clear up, a bit of engraving on the luverley necklace we made for Ulrikke's wedding pressie, a cute little 18carat bell to make..... but because I've been off with the exhibition I had loads of catching up to do! I've been flat out and am looking forward to my first proper week-end for ages!

Anyone not fixed for a holiday should check out the brilliant retro caravan web-site called Love lane caravans. www.lovelanecaravans.com

My old mate Viviana sent me the link and I thought it looked lovely. Not much good for three kids and the dog though........ anyway, we have a week in my native Suffolk booked up so I'm all right. (Plenty of excellent food to be cooked in Suffolk, will keep you posted, Samphire and bacon pasta etc., can't wait!)

What with all the rush I missed my weekly lunches with my brother, so he came over on Sunday for a barbie and we finally swapped birthday gifts. For me a bottle of 16 year old Orkney whiskey, for him a bottle of Gin. (what does that say about us?). My friend Simon told me about these friends who had started the first proper still in London for 189 years, called Prudence. The Gin is superb proper London Gin. Perfect for a summer's eve.

It was Ulrikke's last day today before she goes off to get married. Good luck Ulrikke!

    Hi Girls,
    Thanks for those messages! It's so nice that you guys have been on the web-site. Hope you like it all. I must update my blog more often! At the moment we are doing London Fashion Week, and I think Clementine is going to help us with London Fashion Week-end, when they open to the public and sell off samples etc. If you want to go get Clementine to fetch you a pass and you'll get in for free.
    Will you tell C that I emailed her a rota?
    And I think Verity loves Sydenham. My middle one, Connie should start next year!
    Don't forget I do do work placements if we can fit you in.
    Talk soon,
    Alex
