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…

Wonderful Wednesday 8 February 2017

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 25 January 2017

Happy Wonderful Wednesday one and all! How are you today? Hope noone’s succumbed to the January blues yet? Here’s what’s made me smile over the last few days: 1. The crisp icy weather at this time of year. I can usually find something to enjoy with most seasons, but these icy cold January mornings are…

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…

Wonderful Wednesday 4 January 2017

Well if that’s not a sign of new beginnings I don’t know what is. But believe it or not – that picture is from LAST week in DECEMBER! Snowdrops in December. Either I’m very green fingered or that’s global warming and a lorra lorra compost at work. And without further ado – to the other…

Wonderful Wednesday 28 December 2016

Happy Wonderful Wednesday – the last of 2016! I was going to join Sally in summing up the year rather than delving into the minutiae of my week – but I feel I may miss out the little and the seemingly-insignificant if I try and pick out the ‘best’ bits. I will make a little…

Wonderful Wednesday 21 December 2016

Happy Wednesday everyone! This week’s been a particularly tough one – so it’s been more important than ever to sit down and reflect on the good bits. Hooray for Wonderful Wednesday, the space to write down all the happy things, for everyone who joins in – and those who stop by to read 🙂 And…

Wonderful Wednesday 13 December 2016

Happy mid-week to you all, hope you’re having healthy, happy weeks so far. Here’s what’s been making my work rock lately: 1. Gingerbeer with a dash of lime. The full monty includes a dash of whisky too, but it’s too strong for me – I’m like a kid with their first sip of alcohol when…

Wonderful Wednesday 7 December 2016

Hello ladies and gentlemen, girls and boys – welcome to my little contribution to the world of wonderful this week. The little things that make life go round. And it’s often the little things isn’t it? The big things rarely ever do come round, and when they arrive they’re delicious and monumental, but it’s the…

Wonderful Wednesday 30 November 2016

So here we are – advent Sunday is behind us, and December reaches ahead. How time flies. I’m sharing some happy sunny photos of flaming autumnal leaves, since they’re still mostly here in all their glory, although I fear they’ll soon all be tumbling down to decorate the pavements. Hope your weeks have been lovely…

Wonderful Wednesday 23 November 2016

Well hello there lovely internet dwellers. I’ve had a mixed week of highs and lows, of laughing till I’ve cried, and of feeling poorly and hibernating with a cuppa and a blanket. Of being so busy I found myself holding my breath several times a day, to lounging around on the sofa feeling… restless. Here…
