A week - random order

Sometimes a weeks worth of photos seems much more 'romantic' than the reality but never the less it feels good to occasionally look back over the week & realise in amongst the feelings of never getting anything done, that in fact there are so many things that fill up our days. Some of the moments from the last week

making plans for all those beads (from this)


evening walks


keeping an eye on 'the choker'


Winter beach visits

:: smalls playing/sleeping while I sipped hot sweet black tea
(Hooray for remembering the thermos)
while reading this......thanks Jane....
I do believe I even snorted mid-laugh
(perhaps more than once)

Depressingly I also picked up two large bags of plastic rubbish in a very small radius. From the rubbish I collected I believe the main littering offender only eats food from snack sized individually wrapped portions and smokes (smokes a lot!)

setting the smalls up outside to play with wheat (eventually mixed with sand & water of course)

& sprouting some for the chickens who are back laying eggs for us


identifying the culprit behind the mystery-objects-in-the-bath-tub-saga (this time it was the not so mysterious towels & the bath was unfortunately full)


and some quick (and rather slap-dash) hack & sew,
the before.....well almost



the after....it may fit her in another 2 years!

There was also

:: catching up with an old friend/flatmate & her children (for chatting over cups of tea)
:: a whole day of rain (for a very thirsty garden)
:: one early morning walk (I need more of these, difficult for a natural night-owl)

And one whole day of the weekend still to go......life feels good with Spring just around the corner.

The little dress looks very cute! I had to have a giggle when I saw the culprit, how cute.
