Wonderful Wednesday 31 January 2018

Wow – even January is whizzing by for me this year – anyone feel the same? Maybe it’s because the weather hasn’t been quite as atrocious as usual! Here’s what’s made me happy this week: 1. Getting out on a good long walk. We walked all the way along Grasmere’s shores a few days ago,…

Wonderful Wednesday 17 January 2018

Hello folk and folkesses how are we all today? It’s been another whirlwind of a week, but not in a bad way. I’m feeling pretty happy of late. I’m finding myself in the world again after a sleep-deprived state of weirdness following the birth of my little girl a few months ago. I’m remembering what…

Wonderful Wednesday 10 January 2018

G’day chums how are we all today? This week has been pretty good. The weather has been cold and wintery – my fave – and Mr Roast Chicken has had a rare few days off so it’s All Been Good. It’s also FLOWN by, and it doesn’t seem long since I was last scribbling here….

Wonderful Wednesday 3 January 2018

Happy New Year folk! I’m not going to dwell on All The Great Things I’ve done this year or All The Great Things I’ll Do Next Year. The internet has plenty of people musing on those topics. But I can’t help but feel a little reflective in this first Wonderful Wednesday of 2018. 2017 brought…

Wonderful Wednesday 22 November 2017

Hello view halloo and welcome to Wonderful Wednesday this stormy rainy windy northern week. How ARE you all? I’m soaking up the little bits of sunshine that have burnt through the clouds in the last few days, but also quite liking being the snug and smug feeling of being tucked up warm while the wind…

Wonderful Wednesday 15 November 2017

Hello everyone and welcome to Wonderful Wednesday, a round up of all that is lovely in my little world right now. 1.  Fairy lights and candles. And lots of them. One of my favourite parts of autumn is getting the fairy lights out and dotting my little candles about the living room. I tend to…

Wonderful Wednesday 8 November 2017

Hello one and all – hope the chillier months are treating you well, and that you’ve enjoyed what we’ve got left of the gorgeous autumn leaves. Round these parts a lot of the leaves were blown away in a big bad storm shortly after they arrived – but they’re now carpeting the pathways and lawns…

Wonderful Wednesday 6 September 2017

I don’t know where to start with this post since it’s been rather a while… In typical blogger fashion I could decry the passing of time, the wondering of where on earth summer got to, and the anticipation autumn brings. But as many, many others will write extensively on those subjects, I’ll save this little…

Wonderful Wednesday 9 August 2017

Hi there one and all – hope everyone’s spiffingly super on this August Wonderful Wednesday 🙂 Here’s a little list of the little things that made my little world go round this week: 1. 7.30am on a Sunday, before the noise of the world had built up around. Watching the way the previous night’s rain…

Wonderful Wednesday 5 July 2017

Happy Wonderful Wednesday once again lovely readers! Hope your weeks have been super duper? Mine has been pretty quiet – but that’s no bad thing once in a while. Here’s what’s made it special: 1.  I sung the praises of this last week but I just had to give another shout-out, with IMAGE, to the…

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…
