Hand-made Card, More Decorations and Hyacinths

1   A very quiet pottery kind of day putting up a few more cards. This delightful one which arrived today has been made by the young son of a very special friend.

Beautiful hand-made card

2   I love these very colourful decorations that should be safe from toddler hands as the fireguard will be up. (No fire will be lit!)

Colourful cane decorations

3   Three of the hyacinths that I brought out of the dark on 3rd December are already in flower!  They smell so lovely. Click on the red link if you missed that post.

Beautiful People in India and Nepal (More holiday photos)

The people we met in India and Nepal were all so friendly and many asked if they could take our photos and were happy for me to reciprocate.

Winning Photographs, Photography Course at Lanhydrock and Chocolate Avocado Torte!

1  I mentioned before on our visit to the Natural History Museum, 13th Jan, that the photos were inspiring! Here are just three of them. If you get the chance to go, take it!

2  I’ve booked myself onto a Photography Course at Lanhydrock at the end of February and am very excited about learning how to take better photographs.

3  Sue, Mr S’s cousin made a wonderful Chocolate Torte for the wake last week. She has sent me the recipe today and I’ll be trying it soon. It has avocados, cocoa and coconut oil with a pecan and date base – no butter, no cream, no biscuits and it’s just amazing! I don’t know how many calories it’ll have!!
