I haven’t blogged or had chance to read any blogs for a while, but now I’m nearing the end of a week off work I’ve finally caught up with the million and one things on my To Do List and can partake in a bit of blogger time.
I’m looking forward to catching up with everyone’s blogs and seeing what fab things you’ve rescued from car boots and charity shops and what pretty things have been made. In my spare time I’ve been busy car booting (buying and selling), ebaying, gardening, catching up with friends and family and of course basking in the the lovely sunshine we’ve had. I’ve also been busy doing a practise set up of my stall for The Decorative Fair in Stratford on Saturday the 23rd April.
I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be hosting my very first Vintage & Handmade Fair at Hatton Park Village Hall, Warwick on Sunday 3rd July. I’ve already had booking from lots of lovely bloggers and if you’re interested in having a stall of would like to come along on the day then please visit the Blighty Boutique Vintage & Handmade Fair blog for more info. The blog’s a work in progress at the moment as I’m not the most computer literate person in the entire world, but it’s all in hand, promise.
I’m also really excited to be fundraising for The West Midlands Neuromuscular Centre Appeal as part of the Fair! No Vintage & Handmade Fair is complete without a vintage style tea room and for this event our tea room will be manned (or womaned) by volunteers with all proceeds going to the NMC Appeal.
The appeal is one close to my heart as many members of my family experience FSH Muscular Dystrophy and there is little knowledge or specialist care available for neuromuscular conditions. The Appeal needs to raise £250, 000 to open the specialist neuromuscular centre, the building having already been kindly donated by the Patrick family. The centre will be similar to that of the NMC Cheshire and will provide physiotherapy, osteopathy, soft tissue massage, acupuncture and hydrotherapy. The centre will also be able to offer information, help and support, and create a small IT enterprise run by muscle disease patients themselves. The centre is also forging links with local colleges to enable training courses to be provided.
Right I'm off to peruse all your lovely blogs. Amy x
