In the blink of an eye ...

I dont know where the last three days have gone.
With a blink of an eye ... it is already Tuesday!

(My 3 darling daughters taken 5 years ago)

(The older two with their mum during her blonde days)

And in the blink of an eye they have grown up!

The weekend flew by, with Mother's Day celebrations here in the UK. My girls spoilt me with lots of lovely goodies and my darling husband made me breakfast in bed
(I did remind them all that the real Mothers Day, which is celebrated in Australia, isn't until May ... so I hope they won't forget that one, hehehe!)

The sun has also been out for the past 3 days ... so Lola was topless ... she was glad to be rid of all that stale air!

With a blink of an eye ... the top was gone.

Monday, we were given the opportunity to visit the Fat Duck (3 Star Michelin restaurant in Bray) while working on the design project, which I posted about here.

So, I thought I'd leave you with some more inspiring images of banqueting halls ...

How grand is Buddakan in NYC?
designed by Christian Liaigre

Liaigre is a master of intensifying that sense of anticipation and his entrances are always enigmatic ... designed to tempt patrons inside.

Not that The Fat Duck needs temptation to enter ( the food alone does that!)

With the blink of an eye ... how things can change
be transformed!

Happy Tuesday!
