Recess

Posted by Happy Homemaker UK

Hello, buttercup -
how I've missed our chats!

My apologies for the unannounced break -
life has become too full for the moment
for writing


Nothing says 'England' like a thatched cottage


Family time, helping at school & scrapbooking (almost done!) have taken my full attention

I'll be back shortly to show you the Cotswolds and Royal Ascot through my eyes
as well as another peek of my on-going list of UK vs US differences
Maybe throw in a photo editing tutorial?

Hope your weekend is grand!
I'll see you soon, gorgeous :)

Hi Laura! I'm glad to know you are coming back. I've taken a very long recess because of moving and life being ca-razy :). Can't wait to hear about Ascot. I never made it but it was on my list. Any excuse to wear a hat, right? :) Lovely photo, too!

Photo tutorials are always appreciated. See you soon!

Totally dreamy! I have always imagined retiring in a cottage like that only smaller and surrounded by roses. :)

LOVE the English cottage style home...so dreamy and quaint. A bit pricey I'm sure.

Looking forward to your return.

Hey Laura, I wondered where you were. Don't forget the low down on the Chelsea Garden Show...which I missed..again! Robx

Love the Cotswolds. Can't wait for your trip.

Everyone is busy these days. Summer goes by too quickly for us not to take advantage of the warm days. ♥♫

I'm so glad you've been enjoying your sunny and rainy (deluges,deluges!) days out and about. I can't wait to read all about it.

That is a beautiful cottage! I was born in England and years ago my mom had a book about the difference between Americans and Brits, it was really funny. The only part I remember is that here in the U.S. we have 31 flavors of ice cream and in England it was chocolate or vanilla...not sure if it's still that way tho!

Madelief said...

Take it easy! Enjoy your time :-) Looking forward to hear/see more about Ascot!

Lieve groet, Madelief x

Sarah said...

Yes! It definitely makes me think of the English. Gosh, and who wouldn't want to live in such a fabulous cottage?! Just lovely.

Hines-Sight said...

I love that house. I know how you feel. I barely have time for anything now that my son is not in school.

Pink Princess said...

Hi Laura! Can't wait for your Cotswold post! I remember having a wonderful time there last time I was in England

Jane said...

Lovely photo of a very grand thatched cottage indeed. Can't wait to hear your views on Ascot and the Cotswolds.

Have a nice summer time ! Hope your son enjoyed his year as much as my daughter did; we have forbidden her to pronounce the name of his teacher more than one time a week during the summer...which is something that is going to be very hard!

Jane said...

Oh, goodie! I've missed you, sweet Laura. Oh, and can you check to see if you have an email from me? J x

Privet and Holly said...

Enjoy your life.
Sounds like it's
brimming; wonderful!

I missed your posts but understand busyness. Glad to see you back and your photo of a lovely house with thatched roof. Hmmmm....wonder how they hold up?

I'm looking forward to your next post about the Cotswolds - I've recently left the UK for South East Asia, and I miss the prettiness and calmness of rural England! I like to do a bit of vicarious living through photos! ;-)

(You take beautiful photos by the way....)
