Our holiday

Hello all
Apologies for not blogging at the end of last week, I've been freelancing in a design studio and so lost a lot of hours!
I thought I'd show you some holiday snaps today and I also mentioned in the last post that I had some exciting news to tell you................... well....................I'm engaged!!! Phil very romantically proposed in Barbara Hepworth's garden in St.Ives whilst we were away and I of course said yes! Woooo hooooooo! We've not set a date yet but I've chosen a ring! I took lots and lots of photos whilst I was in Hepworth's garden so I could remember the moment well and I'll show you them in the next post- I think if I load them all onto todays post it may end up crashing someone's computer! lol!
So we started our adventure in Brighton where we went to see the comedian Michael McIntyre who was hilarious- I was nearly crying at one point- no lie! The next day we headed for Dartmouth, a very pretty little town surrounded by beautiful bays. Whilst in Dartmouth I managed to see some paintings of one of my favourite artists- Elaine Pamphilon. I've never seen any of her work in the flesh before so it made my day :)
I couldn't resist uploading some of her work for you to see:

We stayed in Dartmouth for a couple of nights and then headed to one of my favourite places in Cornwall, the stunning little town of Padstow. We ate cupcakes, had Rick Steins famous fish and chips and visited lots of the lovely art galleries around the town.

I think I'll stop there today but I hope you liked the photos and I'll be back soon with "Our Holiday" part two!
Ta ta for now :)
