Hello all! Sorry I've been a little quiet on the blogging front - I've just returned from a weeks holiday in Cornwall. I'll come back to that in a moment!

I'll be blogging about some new work soon, I'm really excited to share it with you! I received the commission through my agent a few weeks ago. It will be published (a little clue for you!) soon and then I can share it with you. I wasn't sure how having an agent would work out, but so far, so very good! It's given me such a confidence boost in my work too. I'm feeling very positive and looking forward to a new working week! (Although that isn't stopping me wishing i was still on holiday!) I've also got a new personal commission to share soon too.

So back to the holiday! We stayed at a really beautiful and friendly campsite close to the beautiful fishing village of Mevagissey (in mid Cornwall). I used to come here with my family as a child and couldn't wait to come back and show Mat too. We had a great time. The weather was a little disappointing with rain and wind, however most days were cloudy but calm and we did manage to go swimming in the outdoor pool most days and even got sun burnt one day! So, we were lucky compared to the constant rain recently! While we were in Cornwall, we visited other areas too, including Lands End (got to once, i guess) and St Ives. St Ives is truly beautiful and one we'll definitely be going back to soon! Most of our holiday was spend eating cream teas, ice creams and fish shop chips! Lots of reading, relaxing and playing cards as well, the perfect week away just the two of us. It was actually our fist proper holiday just with us. Before we've gone with friends or just for weekends away. This was wonderful! And on the way back we visited my Grandad in Devon who Mat had never met. It was the perfect end the to the week.

On Saturday, it was our six year anniversary!! It was partly this reason that we decided to go away last week, the perfect build up and celebration to our anniversary. We had so much wonderful quality time and I find that with work, we don't get to really talk properly at home, so all this time with just us, all day was amazing. I love him so much and a little more each day. And, if all goes to plan, we will be married this time in two years! Exciting :) I got a Megan Claire sentiments card to give to Mat. I love it! Means nothing to others, but the world to us! Thank you Megan, he loved it!

I'll be back soon with my new work! Have a lovely week and enjoy this beautiful warm weather!
