This episode is subtitled: ‘Welcome Baby Evans…’

Kim asked me if I could make a gift for her hairdresser who was expecting a baby. I’m always delighted to have a real purpose for my weekly craft project rather than making something purely for the creative process (and for you to enjoy, of course).

I go to the hairdresser’s about twice a year (although sometimes I need to do a bit of hacking myself in the meantime) and I have to keep topping up my natural colour, Dark Chocolate Brown. I hate doing my colour, it’s such a messy job and recently I managed to get some dye on a large white towel. Kim doesn’t have these problems, with her once-a-month cut and blow dry, and a professional colour every other visit. Her hair always looks great.

This episode is subtitled: ‘Three cheers for the staff…’

We were busy preparing for Valentine’s Day yesterday when the lovely bride from the anemone/Sharpie wedding popped in. I can’t believe it’s nearly a month since the big day. She came in to say thank you and bring us a box of chocolates, which was a boost for the staff since they don’t always get to hear the appreciation directly from customers. Mr Saunders had also popped in that morning to order a posy for his wife’s grave so he joined us for the treat as well.
