So here we are in August 2011! I have been particularly rubbish at keeping my blog up to date! Since I last blogged, we got married :-), had 3 weeks of honeymoon :-) and went back to work :-(
My DH (no longer FH!!), has opened a lighting shop and I am now a Carnegie rather than a Boullin. I don't think it makes it any easier for people though - I now get called Mrs Carnage rather than Miss Bouillon. I think I preferred being a stock cube than a massacre! This is the link to DH's shop on line http://www.carnegielighting.com/ so like it on Facebook and show some support!
We had an amazing honeymoon in the Shetland Islands, on the Isle of Bressay in a lighthouse cottage and it was a real shock to the system coming home to busy, hectic lives. We've already booked a return trip which is one of the wonderful things about honeymooning there - we can go and re-live it at almost any time.
I'll attempt to update my blog more often - it's the remembering that's hard to do! Updates on married life and trials and tribulations of being a shop-keepers wife! So far, it's been great as I've got access to a trade account where they do lots of kitchen stuff - I've been very restrained so far and only got a flour dredger and some metal kebab skewers, oh and some electric kitchen scales, and a mixing bowl. Not much really!
The shop looks great though. I had my doubts to start with seeing the yellow walls but it works. I'll have to sneak a picture and post it on a later blog. The obvious downside at the moment is that DH has to work on a Saturday and so far, he's had to go to the trade place on a Sunday so he's not had any time off. Hopefully he'll be able to find someone to cover him for his birthday. He never works on his birthday as it's a Bank Holiday weekend so we try to make the most of it. Still, if the shop is calling, it takes priority for now.
Right, I shall sign off for now....'til next time.
