...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!
