...this week of...
...happiness seeing in the New Year with old friends as we have done so for the last ten years, cooking and sharing food with friends, a quiet day at home with nothing that I had to do the first day for weeks
...sadness at the lack of respect some parents have of their own children
...creating a few more fabric baskets, a sock, rows on a cardigan, a plan for January, lists of things to make, do and read for the coming months
...reading The Old Ways by Robert MacFarlane and to the children The Great Escape by Emily Bearn, and Father Frost a Russian New Year Tale.
...thinking about projects we can do together during the year
...wondering about a request my eldest has made which doesn't sit well with me but is that a reason to say no?
...hoping to find some colour in the grey that is often January
...enjoying this although it was nothing like my memory of the books!
...looking forward to being at home and settling into our rhythm
I had considered stopping these posts at the end of last year but reading through them to put this post together made me realise how wonderful they are to look back on so I am going to carry them on.
If you would like to join me you would be most welcome, either using my headings or you own, let me know you have written a post and I will link up to it..........
