Family and friends

I arrived home today to find emails and comments on my last post that are both moving and encouraging. I also  had a message on my answering service informing me that a dearly loved cousin died this morning. All in all, a series of reminders of how important family and friends are and how lucky I have been to form such good friendships via the blog. So, I'm going to stop worrying that I don't have anything of great significance to share with the world and just carry on thinking aloud and being distracted by anything and everything.

Over the weekend we celebrated Brit Junior's second birthday. Intermittent showers did nothing to spoil the fun and games in her garden on Sunday. Then we went on to spend a few days with the other grandchildren. I can't show photos from the party as there are other children in them but I can show one that I took yesterday when Millie had her face painted. She chose the shark herself but she still looks surprised!
Thank you to everyone who left a comment or sent me an email. I'll be back tomorrow with a recipe even though I can hear my brother's sighs of dismay all the way from his Greek island!


  1. Cute photo of surprised child and the shark face paint.

  2. Margaretha, I hope you will make the same decision.

    Terra, three is a wonderful age, don't you agree? There appears to be perfect understanding of something and then it suddenly takes on a magical element!

  3. I'm so pleased! I meant to write before and tell you that yours was one of the first blogs I discovered and kept going back to to look at pictures of the lovely English countryside I don't have the time or opportunity to go to as often as I'd like. Not to meantion your recipes. And the fact that I was the lucky recipient of several of your giveaways!

    Thank you. I hope the recipe I am about to write up is to your liking.


I love to read your comments and promise that I will reply as soon as I can leave my garden, sewing room or kitchen!
