I drew a rabbit and fawn whilst the boiler was being serviced.
The boiler man turned up an hour and a half late.
And I know it’s daft but
I couldn’t really settle until he came
and then I couldn’t really do anything
because he was here…
I have three new loves this weekend- it’s been a good one!
1. Tom Ford’s Cafe Rose perfume. I haven’t the words to describe a scent, but it’s beautiful. A lovely and un-expected gift from Tony (thank you duty free airport shopping!)
2. Laura Mvula. I will be playing her album non-stop when it arrives.
Really good and really cheap too. Although, I only ever eat the red, black and white ones. These are all waiting to be eaten by a boy.
Betty brought me this stick today. She obviously wanted me to throw it for her and was quite bemused when I put it in my pocket instead.
The boys had a similar reaction when I started taking photos of it.
Tony and I will celebrate twenty six years together next week.
Feels like forever and yet not long enough.
So, I’ve made us a cushion.
Did I ever show you my coasters? I can’t remember. But I made them ages ago for a couple of English paper piecing * workshops I taught. Simple, pretty and time consuming.
Woe betide anyone who spills a drink on them.
* Flossie tea cakes is the place to go for paper piecing advice.
So, here’s my fabulous new ring from Azulado. I love big rings!
Surely I need some handmade clogs?
Did you know that B &Q have free woodworking classes? The boys made bird boxes at the weekend with proper power tools. They were both pretty proud of themselves.
I’ve taken to eating my porridge with a sprinkling of cinnamon (and a lot of brown sugar). Very daring of me, don’t you think!

I had a lovely time sewing and watching this programme about Robbie Burns with one of my favourite singers Eddi Reader. I’ve seen her live and her voice gives you goosebumps. Beautiful.
