Wonderful Wednesday 14 March 2018

It’s supposed to be #wonderfulwednesday but this week’s been pretty awful. Exhaustion, illness, stress and the odd panic attack have all featured, as has the odd retreat into a couple of wine-dazed stupors to combat all of the above. But that’s what this is about isn’t it? To find the fun among the grot? To…

Wonderful Wednesday 21 February 2018

I’m writing this Wonderful Wednesday post on returning from a blissful week in the Scottish Highlands, where the sea sparkled and the sand shone. Now it’s back to normal, but that’s not really so bad, and there are plenty of happy things to notice, if you take the trouble. 1. The birds are back! Their…

Wonderful Wednesday 7 February 2018

Top of the morning / afternoon / evening to you on this cold cold Wednesday! I’ve been freezing my little socks off this week, due both to the cold outside and the fact that we chose this week to have a NEW BOILER installed! On the coldest day of the year! Nuts! But we are…

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…
