...to add some cheer to January. Like cinema leftovers (we went to see this film and both enjoyed it - definitely one of those which you know works better on the big screen). The tickets were expensive but it was a nice (grown up) evening.
Joe having fun on the swings. I always carry an old tea towel in the bottom of our bag in case we need to dry off the seats first. Be Prepared and all that...
A cute little book from the charity shop. One day I fancy keeping a few hens. I put crusts out in the garden for the two fat wood pigeons who roost in the tree at the end and Joe loves watching them. I suspect chickens would live in fear of his over-enthusiastic stroking technique (cats know to avoid him like the plague).
I've been asked to put together a bit of a display with dried flowers and seed heads for a living room window. I chose this jug over glass vases and china. Now I just need to find some stems to arrange in it...
I have a little pot of miniature daffodils growing away in the kitchen, brightening up a shady corner. Although to be honest most of the house feels a bit gloomy at the moment, what with the sun (when it appears) being so low in the sky and disappearing before long.
We booked a break in the Scottish borders too. We go at the end of March and have chosen somewhere within a reasonable driving distance of Edinburgh. So we can take Joe to the zoo.
I'm already thinking of things to take with us: Scrabble, candles, a radio, extra blankets... and lots of nice things to eat. We're excited!
