We have lambs in the back field! It is so lovely to see them, just one pair of twins at the moment but we hope for more. Last year the pregnant ewes were taken away before the lambs were born and only brought back when the little ones had grown quite a lot.
There was a knock at the door this afternoon and there was a Very Dear Friend with her arms full – of flowers and a Leek and Stilton Quiche, both of which smelt divine!
We have had the most delicious Quiche for supper with salad and send our heartfelt thanks to our very lovely friend for her love, concern and cooking!
A dear friend turned up this lunchtime with a beautiful bunch of daffodils for me – much appreciated kindness.
The daffodils in the front garden seem to be surviving the winds.
The following came my way recently and, as a retired English teacher, it appealed to me.
I’ve been knitting snoods for a collection of warm stuff for refugees.
The first Wednesday of each month is Sing For Your Heart at the Eco Park. Today was as uplifting as always. There was a goodly collection of donations for the next load going to Calais to help the refugees. Love the designs in the atrium.
Our first purple Crocus has appeared.
Our lovely LiveWire No 4 drew a portrait of us both, me with a purple dress and her Grandad in a pink shirt. There is a tree and a flower too because we love our garden. We are holding hands because we love each other!
We are surrounded by loveliness! Our lovely neighbour brought in a gorgeous bouquet to celebrate Mr S’s birthday.
Here is the Action for Happiness chart for February.
What a day! I drove up to the Eden Project to meet Daughter No 3 and LiveWire No 4 and we had a splendid day with the rain falling heavily outside while we explored the Biomes. As we went in for lunch, a Robin appeared to say Hello!
Join us having fun by clicking on the photos in the gallery.
As we were leaving the rain turned to sleet and before we had reached the shop, it was a full blown blizzard and in no time at all were were covered. We were in different car-parks and agreed to meet at home but when I tried to leave the cars in front were slipping and sliding and it became clear that none of us were going anywhere. The lovely staff called us to go back to the cafe where they would find us coffees so off we went – but L wasn’t there. In her 4×4 she had managed to leave the site only to realise that I was stuck (longer story!) and she came back for me. Thirty or forty others are spending the night at Eden while we are safely home, the journey of 50 mins taking us more than 2 hours! On that hazardous drive we saw many abandoned cars and vans and came across a old man hitching as he too had left his car on the side of the road. We have him a lift to his junction, a few miles, and very close to his home and he was very grateful indeed.
Every day I am working on my glass, trying to get the cutting right, the foiling even, to make smooth beading with the solder and each day I am making some progress. Today I made a small present of a shooting star for a dear friend whose birthday was a couple of days ago.
On my very short walk today I came across a pretty bow lost by a child, I’m thinking on a walk to or from school. Some kind person had put the bow up on the hedge so I hope that on her way to school tomorrow, she spots it and can reclaim it.
On my stroll down Lovers’ Lane, I saw just one Pink Campion.
