child free week

I'm  having  a very quiet week my daughter has gone on holiday to Tunisia with a friend and family i am sort of enjoying it but its so quiet  , but also I'm  ,calmer no arguments , have more money , less washing, , calmer oh i have already said that  , no really  i  am used to her being away as she goes away with  herstep mum alot but this is different its a friend abroad , i was doing all the usual neurotic mother things giving all things medical to take telling her to watch bag, money etc sun lotion .I guess most of all is trust and hope i have bought her up pretty sensible but will be having fun .

At the weekend we had a new shopping outlet open called kilver designer emporium its set in some beautiful gardens so was a lovely morning out saw loads i would have liked but bought a top from aubin and wills and a cup from emma bridgewater which was only there for the weekend shame ,  other shops are cabbages and roses ,toast pedlar  and isabella oliver  and more i have forgot plus popped into mulberry drooled over the bags ha ha  oh and as a designer there was security everywhere ended up getting told off for going in wrong door in garden he thought we were sneeking in without paying (we were just lost ) and then some snobby lady i over heard in posh voice oh whats upstairs oh emma bridgewater oh thats sooo boring !  how dare she tssk. the pics on here are the gardens which are lush  oh and my new mug
