...this week of...
...happiness seeing my brother and how he has improved in the month since his accident, a quiet week at home hiding from the Christmas madness, a walk in the woods in less than good weather we all thought it was great fun!
...sadness at the insidiousness of advertising
...creating bunting, rows on a scarf, a finished vest, a sock, Lussekatter
...reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt and Mrs Sinclair's Suitcase by Louise Walters, to the children Tumtum and Nutmeg's Christmas Adventure by Emily Bearn, and these picture books you can read a short review of them here, 285. Anthony Ant's Creepy Crawly Party by Lorna and Graham Philpott, 286. Anthony Ant's Treasure Hunt by Lorna and Graham Philpott, 287. Sparkle Street: The Daisy Disaster by Vivian French, 288. Where in the World is Bob? by James Bowen, 289. Polly's Pink Pyjamasby Vivian French, 290. The Gift by Carol Ann Duffy, 291. Otto the Book Bear by Kate Cleminson.
...learning about Castles, how to identify trees in Winter, St Nicholas, St Lucia, a fairy house and garden, gnomes, angels
...thinking about all those who do not have a warm house at this very cold time of year
...wondering if I have time to make some bunting for our house
...hoping to get all my Christmas makes finished by the weekend
...looking forward to finishing a scarf this week which it feels like I have been knitting for months (I have!) the end is now in sight......
