Wonderful Wednesday 31 October 2018

Wonderful Wednesday has rolled around again, and I’ve been a little haphazard with it, sometimes scribbling away regularly and other times leaving big chunks in between my musings. These last few weeks have been the latter. But it does feel good to list the lovely. Namely: 1. The nip in the air. THE best time…

Wonderful Wednesday 19 September 2018

Oh Lake District you continue to delight and revitalise me. When I’m down in the dumps, knackered, grumpy or frustrated (or all of the above) you never fail to bring a smile to my little face. There has NEVER been a time when I haven’t come away from you feeling better. Even though your main…

Wonderful Wednesday 11 April 2018

This week’s left me feeling fulfilled and stimulated… but oh so tired! We’ve been hip hopping around the country, seeing friends, spending time with family and it’s all been lovely, but now I’m ready for a few peaceful days to pitter and potter around the house again. Ying and yang innit. Speaking of which –…

Wonderful Wednesday 28 March

Happy Wonderful Wednesday everyone. What’s been happening? I’m collecting all kinds of happy thoughts this week after a BUSY spell. I really don’t like being busy. I like to catch my breath each day and notice what I’m doing. I was once making arrangements to be picked up by someone on the way to a…

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 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…
