World Book Day, Buds and Narcissi

I love the idea of World Book Day

I would nominate The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle for littl’uns and Stig of the Dump by Clive King for 7-9 year olds.

We have buds on our Cornus. It’s looking better than in previous years so we are hoping there is no bitterly cold spell to come. They are opening rather early……

Cornus Controversa Variegata

These Narcissi are beautiful, in the walled garden just outside the kitchen, and they make me smile.

Balaclava, Baking, Beaching and Reading

It’s half term and two of our lovely Live Wires are with us. I’ve been making a balaclava in Arsenal colours for J. It fits and J is delighted with it.

The balaclava fits!

We baked this morning.

The sun shone and we played on the beach in real warmth which was so welcome.

We have started a serialisation of ‘Stig of the Dump’ by Clive King this evening and Chapter 1 has gone down so well, Chapter 2 is being read in bed as I write! It was a great favourite with our four when they were little too and a joy to read again.
