...this week of...

...happiness a walk in the winter sun, snowdrops, a restful week

...sadness for a friend who is having a tough time of it at the moment

...creating shawl which is off the needles and now needs blocking, snowdrop fairies, parsnip cake, dens, a cafe, the start of a sock,

...reading The Still Point by Amy Sackville, my second book by this author, to my children 
Tarka the Otter by Henry Williamson, and these picture books*, I have written a short review of them here 34. Wide Awake Jake by Rachel Elliott, 35. Ella Bella Ballerina and the Sleeping Beauty by James Mayhew, 36. In the Country by Benedict Blathwayt, 37. The Winter Story by Jill Barklem, 38. The Toy Hospital by Elaine Mills, 39. Peace at Last by Jill Murphy, 40. Peacefulness by Lucia Raatma

...learning about electricity, dinosaurs, music scores, orchestras, hibernation, flight, digestion

...thinking about people in the South West of England, struggling with the continued rain and flooding

...hoping my daughter gets rid of her cough soon

...looking forward to visiting my parents later this week


  1. Love peace at last! Will have to try the winter story and add it to my 'winter' box for school!

  2. Lots of good things happening in your week! Can't wait to see your shawl.

  3. I love Peace at Last as well, Jill Murphy writes books that parents love to read I think. I always love reading about the Large family. Sounds like you've had some good moments this week.

  4. Hope your daughter feels better soon. Peace at last is one of my faves too. Rebecca@ TheBeesleyBuzz xxx
