Following a thoroughly eye opening appointment with the wonderful Paul Vann at Woodings Opticians this morning which resulted in me being extremely reassured about my eyesight (I am not going blind as I first thought I had just been given the wrong lenses by another optician phew!) Thank God for Paul, however I have now lost my excellent excuse for being such a terrible driver, it appears I don't even need glasses for driving, "You probably need to concentrate more" Paul said, excellent advice I thought, what an all round brilliant optician, (and I could watch breakfast telly in the waiting room all in all a great mornings work !)
Any way back at FD HQ I had a little meeting with Nigel from Metz, who'd brought all of the beautiful fresh Hops directly from the grower for the lovely Kate Derrick's wedding on Friday. I had a bit of a whinge about the rising price of fresh flowers (Nothing new there then!) Nigel promised me some effort in this area (This would be something new!)
Then off to the Trough of Bowland where we had some meetings planned and I'd taken some gorgeous little fresh flower handbags to present to the lovely Joanne & Sheree from the spectacular One & Only wedding gown store in Preston.

Lunch at Bashall Farm and a quick walk through The Inn at Whitewell with a fabulous couple planning a Christmas wedding (more of that soon).
Finally a great meeting with the lovely Edward & Pauline from Gibbon Bridge, plans are a foot for some Flower Design Afternoon Teas and Bridal Supper Club evenings at this superb venue, you'll have to watch this space for dates etc.
All in all a very full day, I am exhausted!!!!
