Welcone to ‘Tulips & Treacle’
If you don’t know me already I’m Annie, a Northern lass (but without the northern accent !) – so welcome to my Blog ! Hope you have a cup of something warm(it’s chilly in the UK at the moment!) and are curled up all comfy and cosy!
Going to let you into a secret….I never imagined for a nanosecond that I would start writing a blog. In fact up to a few years back I didn’t even know what a blog was !
It was only when the addiction to Instagram started approximately three years a go that I came across such amazing people and their blogs.
Now I’m not a ‘writer’ but I do love putting pen to paper (afraid I’m addicted to lovely stationery- will talk about that another day !) and jotting down thoughts while out and about. So I thought why not ! Have a go Annie, you know you want to…….so after a couple of years of just thinking and dreaming- here I am !
What’s it going to be about ?
I’m ‘of a certain age’ BUT I love to have fun, enjoy life, food, style, both in the home and fashion. Just because a person reaches a certain “number” in their life doesn’t mean style goes out of the window and sensible shoes and nylon shoppers come in through the front door! No way…..though if it’s snowing then snow style is allowed….in the form of Hunters and duvet coats !!!
Now, I can’t promise that I won’t talk about “that topic” – you know the one!? It’s freezing but you are glowing! Those “tropical moments”, “flashes”, “flushes”, whatever you wish to call them. It happens to all women.
There,I’ve said it!
Tulips & Treacle?
If you are still reading…….a big THANK YOU !
Why the name ?
Easy……I just love Tulips! Though to be honest all flowers are gratefully received ! (Just in case hubs happens to sees this !)
They just herald the coming of Spring. As for their colour – this year I loved Pink, next year it may be a rainbow of colours.
I mean…..who doesn’t love a vase full of droopy tulips !?
Now for Treacle !
Treacle just takes me back to my childhood. Especially at this time of year. Baking sticky ginger cake and Parkin with my granny (what do you mean you’ve never tried it !?). Plus treacle toffee and fudge for Bonfire night (No wonder I was always visiting the dentist as a child).
Well……that’s it for my very first blog post.
Hope you enjoyed your cuppa while reading this !?
I can tell you my finger hovered over the ‘Publish’ key for quite a few seconds ! Should I shouldn’t I !?
Will be back soon……so please pop along again!
