In a fuel shortage we have probably clocked up more miles these past few weeks than ever! There has been a long list of hospital appointments for both of us. My physio is coming along great and I'm actually feeling the improvements. John has been doing well until the breathlessness started to become a problem.… Continue reading October the Beginning
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 don't think I've done the summer/winter wardrobe swap over for several years and months like this are exactly why.… Continue reading Augtember Hmmmm
Bit of a catch up this week! First welcome to you if you have just joined me and come from Sandra's blog Wild Daffodil. Feel free to browse and join in! Question: do you wear an apron?

Though I saw it all happening from the start I didn't actually decide… Continue reading A Minor Arty Thing but it’s a Start!
The Mermaid tail has been finished! It was quite a quick knit. I can fit my legs and feet in it easily so Olivia will disappear! It's quite nice thinking that I've started the CWord makes off. On to a shark version next. The Wordsworth Cuckoo is nearly there too. Just a dash to the… Continue reading Mermaid Finish

I cannot believe the… Continue reading Hello June!
