Plan to be the last post for a while as I really MUST get writing and researching for my dissertation.
THIS was Cuttlebrook last week - how high the Queen Anne's lace has grown! My shoulder height.
Have not been there this week, missing it.
Guess what this is?!
Lucy constantly patiently waiting to go for a walk or up to bed.
Last week I was in London at Paddington and went to register at the British Library to have access to more articles for my research...
Amazing modern building - I was not expecting this- and a sunny quad to sit and meditate or have your lunch in.
Off to Winchester by train and the first outing of my new satchel briefcase...
Lovely cup of tea and breakfast croissant as I left home at 7:30 am.
Took Lucy to vet to be vaccinated and this poster warned of dangers to dogs...
Back home the pansies planted in April are flourishing!
This weekend I bought and planted Bizzie Lizzies, Sweet Peas and a trailing Lobelia.
The sweet williams are growing very large leaves but no sign of flowers or buds yet
This morning we had a dance rehearsal at Windsor Barracks:
Dancing on grass, we had lovely weather!
After a picnic lunch everyone rushing off home...
This is a tiny preview of the lovely bag-pipe music!
I am now going to be writing and researching until the end of September.
If I blog at all it will be a procrastinatory exercise. So I really must not. Not.
Hello and welcome to my homely world in a small Oxfordshire town in 2013.I am a full- time working mum.
Very proud of 2 gorgeous girls , a fabulous if very stubborn wire haired standard dachshund bitch and her daughter : the daughter takes after her dad so they are very different; a wonderful( well 99% of the time anyway) and long suffering husband.
This is to be my diary of events for a creative crafting sort of person with all the happenings that occur in this day and age in English family life.I am very much learning as I go along, my eldest is my first at all the things that occur in a young person's life as it's all very different from when I was a little girl and I did not grow up in England.
Totally obsessed with textiles and the making of things- anything!
My passion is to make things with yarn or fabric or thread : any textile crafts or beads too.
