This Week.....

In Pictures

The weather has been a mixed bag. Dark, grey, cold, wet mixed with very brief bursts of warmth and sunshine. The mornings are suddenly so dark.

Comforting soup and poached eggs have been my staple this week.

The days have been spent with a candle and a little lamp on.....and my trusty hot water bottle on my lap as I craft away.

I even sported a neck wrap on several occasions I was THAT cold.

I have been a busy bee trying to get my little hats made for the Innocent smoothie Big Knit campaign. I just have to sew on some pom pom bobbles and then they will be posted off. I wonder where they will end up?

It has left me little time for anything else this week, aside form the daily washing and cleaning duties. But, I have taken a few minutes out each day to just capture moments. I love to remember. I love to remind myself what made me smile in a day.

I have loved the lamps, the candles, the hot water bottles, the subdued and cosy lighting and the permanent aroma of coffee on the go all this week.. I have loved being snug and feeling that this week has been a good week.



  1. Ah, my favorite Rice candles, so beautiful. Lovely photo's!! Enjoy your weekend, groetjes, Gerda

  2. Sooooo cosy! I adore the top photo, is that a ranunculus?
    Oooh it has been cold, I have been wearing three cardigans for most of the week, I think it takes a few weeks to get used to the temperature change, keep topping up that hot water bottle and stay cosy.

    wishing you a wonderful weekend
    love jooles

    P.S Nice photos ;o)

  23. I love snug weeks! Just a shame that meals and cleaning still have to happen... Embracing the Granny feel as my hot water bottle has been replaced with a heated throw. I could sit and knit or crochet all day...

  24. I have looked at you FAQ's - please could you point me in the right direction for the pattern for your lovely blanket called Coco Rose Harlequin blanket - but I think you called it something else . I am very new to all this so any help would be appreciated . regards Jenny Abbey
