Moments...



...this week of...

...happiness sharing dinner with friends, finding a new home for some books that we didn't want anymore, finally making it to a new home ed group and loving it, hearing owls calling

...sadness at the 'news' this week concerning three teenagers, on the one hand I admire their passion on the other I can't help wonder if it is misguided, we only know what we hear in the news.....

...creating a shawl, unravelling a project and starting something new with the yarn, ideas for a cardigan

...reading Gone are the Leaves by Anne Donavon and The Sky's Dark Labyrinth by Stuart Clark and to my children The Railway Children by E. Nesbit and a fable about Chinese New Year.


...learning about Shrove Tuesday, Lent, Chinese New Year, archaeology, Romans

...thinking about a home ed camp 

...wondering about how to celebrate the many festivals in the next few weeks

...hoping the sourdough starter I am making works

...enjoying this

...looking forward to helping to build a bender at the weekend in our Forest School woods

  1. Love the gate standing alone without a fence or is there one I am not seeing?! Sounds like a good balance of things in your week.

    1. No there is no fence! I love this gate, it is on a walk that we do regularly but I have never taken a picture of it, until this week that is. It is beautiful, a work of art but there is no evidence of the fence that it must have been joined to, I often wonder if it was taken down in the war but the gate was left? It is also a remarkable gate in that opens both way, with a wheel running in a metal track, all the mechanism still works and we always make a point of going through it even though we don't need too!

  3. Thank you for the link to the archaeology programme; fascinating finds, how exciting it must be to discover something buried and know that it was last held in a human hand thousands of years ago! X

  4. So much going on! I'm curious about your "news" comment though. What is happening in your part of the world? I hope this week is just as wonderful and challenging.

    PS The gate is beautiful!

    1. Three girls from London, aged fifteen and sixteen, have flown to Turkey it is thought that they are going to cross into Syria to join Islamic State. Their families knew nothing about their plans and have appealed through the media for them to come home.

  8. Digging for Britain sounds fascinating. I would love that. I wonder if we'll be able to see it here. We've had our sourdough starter for eight years, I don't know if I could live without it in the house at this point.
