We have been on a journey...
Miss Belle likes to read her 100 year old copy of Hans Anderson at bedtime, there is much flaying of horses and killing, but this was before he was Disneyfied as Hans Christian Anderson.
Much cake was eaten and smoked salmon and herrings and pastries.
how easily children walk in the search for treasure.

Friday means my guitar lesson - I'll Find My Way Home, Vangellis - a mooch around the charity shops and lunch in our favourite cafe - chocolate ice cream, sometimes we coma away empty handed but today we did rather well. Turquoise serving platter 50p, Cherry Tree by Midwinter bowl 99p, very Orla or actually the other way around.
JAJ bowl £1, addicted to this stuff, oven, freezer, dishwasher and dirt cheap.
Crystal jug, weighs a tonne, £2.50.
Blue Bird - fab illustrations, way before Lauren Child - 75p, tin bucket £1 and a cafetiere £2.50. So for £11.74 we didn't do bad.

Another bread product I have been meaning to make forever, a bit of a faf but well worth it, the paste for the crosses was a bit too wet, will do better next time...
Geraldine where are you? Unbelievably difficult to finger pick, remember the words and sing all at the same time, helped in my endevour by Louis who can keep time and remember the words.
Big teapigs order arrived, my big assistant is developing his pallet with the odd silver tip of an evening.
I do however have a new cowl, Chunky Baby Misti Alpaca purchased in New York about this time last year, so well overdue for the knitting.
Will the pears ever stop coming in the veg box? Up to our necks in pear tart but surviving.
