The Day Job
What can I say about those cute painted wooden animals? By day I own and run an independent toy shop. When we moved back to The Midlands not only did I have a house move to contend with along with not feeling well but I also had a business to relocate.
As well as running an online business I also had a shop that needed to be moved too. It took some time to find premises here in the right location and at the right price. After much searching we found ourselves a new shop.
At the beginning of May we signed the paperwork and picked the keys up. Then the fun began; moving an entire shop just over 100 miles and starting all over again. We are now three months in to our new venture and I can honestly say despite the hard work I’m loving my job.
I was lucky to be invited to a restaurant opening in Birmingham st the end of June. During July I ate at the restaurant twice. On both occasions the food was delicious and the hospitality spit on. If you’re a fan of French food I can thou fly recommend Le Bistrot Pierre on Broad Street Birmingham. They also have a number of restaurants around the country.
Since moving back to Birmingham I’ve had the opportunity to go to some lovely blogger events. I especially loved the blogger evening at Farrindon & Forbes at Resort World Birmingham. Such a lovely boutique shop with amazing smelling candles and cute home decor items. The hanging hearts are just adorable.
Sunny Days At The Seaside
What’s not to love about a day at the seaside which is made even better by the sun shining down.
These are my favourite things for July. What have you been loving this past month?
