As you can imagine we've been taking it slowly as John finds his feet again. He is finding that his 'battery' runs low quite quickly and it takes a while to recharge. He is also taking a trial drug which is giving him the occasional headache and shortness of breath. It's doing all the other… Continue reading Rest and Recuperation
Not even a week really though it feels like it's all gone in slow motion. Remember my little Scarecrow for our Village Gathering last time? Well that morphed into this at 07.30 Wednesday 1st September. John came back from the dog walk not feeling too well. Thankfully we have good friends and a defibrillator in… Continue reading A Week to Not Repeat
Who would have ever thought August would slide into being an autumnal month! It's certainly been feeling that way with chilly, damp and grey mornings often with mist in the valleys and warmer, sunny afternoons.

I know I have many other projects on the go but this one intrigued me and I’ve wanted to do a Faby for a while. Variety is the spice and all that! From the get go… Continue reading July the Beginning
Well the weather has been spectacular at last! Summer arrived. What a strange year. I have peonies totally over and some just coming into tight bud. The same with the roses. You can almost hear the plants wondering if it's safe to get on with things now! Lots of time has been spent in the… Continue reading Garden and Golf Steals June!
I have put the goldwork Scarab into a frame and it looks rather good. When I get time I will rearrange the wall with all the other pieces on, it’s becoming quite a feature. I bought Elsa a lovely tapestry kit a few years ago for her to pick up when she actually had a… Continue reading That’s May Done
