Blog, Out and About

A few days away..

A few days in lovely Cornwall was just what we all needed. Gorgeous beaches, long walks, and great food. We’ve been going to the Lizard peninsula for years and it’s where we recharge our batteries – dogs included! I knitted, I crocheted and I read. Bliss.

Here & Now January 2017

Linking up with Sarah of the wonderful Say!

Happy new year! I love new year. A time for fresh perspectives and new opportunities. One problem. I’m a faffer. I wake up with a myriad of wonderful ideas that slip down drainholes, merge into fogged breath and skip behind the sofa. I need to grab hold of them. Lists help. I’m a list person.

Happy Christmas!

I’ve been unable to post here for ages due to technical issues with the website – happily now all sorted.
