Well, I have just got back from the most fantastic stay in London. I was invited to the Country Homes and Interiors 'My Country Business Awards' near Sloane Square on Thursday the 2nd October. It was held at the lovely Daylesford Farm Shop and Cafe, where there was an abundance of delicious finger food and drinks. Think mini sandwiches, slices of homemade cake, winter Pimms and lashings of tasty Prosecco!

The awards were handed out to myself and five other category winners by the magazine Editor Rhoda Parry, who gave a nice introduction to the proceedings. My lovely mentor in the Interiors category, Vanessa Arbuthnott presented me with a beautiful bouquet of hand tied flowers, so by the time I had the flowers in one hand and the award in the other, it made finishing my fizz a little difficult!

I want to say a huge thank you Country Homes and Interiors for the award and for inviting me to the wonderful ceremony too. Thank you also Vanessa, I am very much looking forward to our next mentoring session.
