...this week of...

...happiness being at home again, a tidyish house (for a few days until we start getting ready to go camping), my eldest reading jokes from a book and laughing so much he cannot get his words out, my youngest dressing up as a explorer with a colander for a hat, sunglasses, binoculars on string round the neck and a small suitcase in hand.

...sadness at the decline in the health of my father in law.

...creating more knitted animals, a scarf, knitted flowers and boats out of sticks and leaves.

...reading finishing the very funny These Foolish Things by Deborah Moggach, which I have just discovered has been made into a film The Marigold Hotel, now reading A Little History of the World by EH Gombrich

...learning to ride a bike with pedals, about crash barriers, vitamins and minerals, Romans and Egyptians.

...thinking about something I read this week about children's books, choosing them carefully, looking at the content mindfully, quality not quantity, living books the philosophy of
Charlotte Mason, it struck a chord with me.

...wondering if I am going to get everything made for my youngest's birthday later this month.

...hoping to visit friends who have a new baby soon.

...looking forward to camping this weekend.


  1. I'm envious. I haven't been camping in years!
    And I just watched The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Lots of great actors as well as funny and heartfelt.

  2. I love these posts where you share what's going on in your world.
    Charlotte Mason always makes so much sense to me.


Hello......would love to hear from you :)
