Wonderful Wednesday 28 June 2017

Despite what the photos in this post suggest, I haven’t actually been out much recently, partly due to the AWFUL weather we’ve had over the last few days. Bye Summer! So these snaps are a little collection from a few years back mooching by lakes and the seaside in sunnier times. And so on to…

Wonderful Wednesday 31 May

I’ve had to dig deep this week. It’s been a hard one. But it’s reminded me that I’ve got so so much to be thankful and that’s been a great comfort to remember. And it hasn’t been without its little joys. Such as: 1. Walking on sheep-nibbled grass. An absolute delight. The right balance of…

View Halloooooooo one and all – how are you? I’m really pretty tired being in the middle of a busy olde work week – but next week I’ll be off to lounge and read and potter about in the sun so mustn’t grumble! Here’s what’s made me smile this week: 1. A perfectly ripe peach,…

Wonderful Wednesday 10 May 2017

Hello all, and Happy Wonderful Wednesday to you! Just a quickie today as I’m a) rather late in posting and b) knackered! But I couldn’t not share the lovely things I’ve noticed this week, including: 1. An accidental triumph in the kitchen – BALSAMIC VINEGAR IN THE HUMMUS. You heard it here first. It was…

Wonderful Wednesday 26 April 2017

It doesn’t seem like five minutes since I was sitting here scribbling away last week. It’s been a busy few days out and about, and dealing with a KILLER headache that lasted all the way through the weekend into this week, which wasn’t so wonderful. All the more reason to remember the nice little bits…

It’s Wednesday and it sure is wonderful. If a little chilly. Hurry up Spring – I thought you’d started?! Despite the heating still being on and the winter coats still not put away, I’ve got a list of the lovely to share: 1. A Smoothie Maker. Very 2015 I know, but I’ve hopped on board….

Happy Wonderful Wednesday! How is everyone? Springing with life or a little…meh? I’m of the springing variety this week – I’m loving this weather like a solar panel. Here were the best bits: 1. An evening stroll. I wonder how many times I’ve written that. It’s a lovely time of day to go awandering though….

Wonderful Wednesday 15 February 2017

Happy happy Wonderful Wednesday one and all! It’s been a FREEZING cold week up here – but one filled with lovely things, including… 1. Watching the crocuses pop up. All my flowers have been early this year. I had snowdrops in December, swiftly followed by a scattering of daffs and crocuses. I planted LOADS in…

Happy Wonderful Wednesday! Hope everyone’s drifting along swimmingly during these cold February days. Here’s what’s made me glad and thankful this week: 1. A really long walk in the cold. We wrapped up warm and, armed with a big flask of soup, some crusty bread and a slab of homemade gingerbread (yes I am Darrell…

Wonderful Wednesday 1 February 2017

As this mid-week comes I’m feeling pretty thankful. Thankful that January’s over to be honest. It’s a difficult month, cold and dark, with little to look forward to in terms of the outside world, since Spring’s a few months away yet. February brings a little more cheer. It contains the school half term, more snowdrops,…

Wonderful Wednesday 18 January 2017

Howdy y’all! Hope your week is spiffy doodley so far. Mine has been tinkling on fairly quietly, which has been lovely. Here’s what made it extra-special: 1. Dossing around at the weekend. We had one of our oldest friends over to stay – the kind who become family many years ago. No need for proper…
