...this week of...

...happiness spending new year in the company of friends following a years old tradition, tidying and decluttering my kitchen, a beautiful hyacinth on our dining room table

...sadness at the news coming out of South Sudan and Iraq

...creating homemade bread, Nutella palmiers, knitting a cardigan and shawl, paintings of castles, a wooden tank kit, a meccano model

...reading Gossip from the Forest by Sara Maitland and 1.Witchety Sticks and the Magic Buttons by Helen Stephens and 2. Just Ducks by Nicola Davies*

...learning about area, length, Madagascar, ice, bubbles, reptiles

...thinking about a friend who starts a new full time job this week

...hoping the rain eases for a little so that we can go for a long walk one day this week

...looking forward to a celebratory meal with the Explorer Scouts, they are cooking!

  1. Sounds like a good mix of moments - hope you get your walk OK I've been waiting for weeks!!

  2. Here in the mountains the rain is visiting. Enjoy your moments fully.

  3. Enjoy them fully :0)

  4. I'm really hoping the rain eases too. Enjoy that celebratory meal, it will taste extra good if it is being cooked for you!

  5. It would be lovely to take a walk without getting wet wouldn't it ... at least whippets are as wary of cold and rainy weather as we are ... but the sun is shining just now ... I think I need to nip out and walk some hounds. I do hope you get out too :)

  6. just wanted to stop by and send you wishes for a beautiful new year!


Hello......would love to hear from you :)
