12 Feb

1   The post today brought a thank-you card for the Sally-boots I knitted for the baby born on my birthday. He is so gorgeous!

2   I came across this cutting from a newspaper from the 50’s which I found in Mum’s desk when I cleared it for polishing. What wise and timeless words indeed, especially, for me,  the last bit.

3   It’s Pancake Day. First we had Savoury Pancakes stuffed with chicken in a white sauce and we followed that tasty course with Boozy Crepes Suzettes – utterly scrumptious!
