At the moment thoughts do not transfer themselves from my imagination, through my fingers, onto the keyboard and finally on to the screen. Suspect it is coz I am tired, coz my head is so full that it is difficult to separate out stories from guff, coz I seem to have a lot going on and just, well just coz...
Walking, breathing bracing air, drinking tea on the side of a hill.
Losing a furry walking friend after years of companionship - it has hit me harder than I thought.
Making and baking.
Carrot cake, sticky malt loaf, Swedish sticky cake, creamy salmon curry (can't find the link for it sorry) and Brioche bread and butter pudding, they are my February five new recipes.

After a month or two of knitting this.......
I'd completed the back and had almost finished the front when in a moment of realisation of how much I hated what I was creating - I frogged the whole thing in a flash. It made me feel so much better. The green has been stashed for another day and the heather wool plus a saved cream wild silk yarn is growing into this....
For all the wishes and hugs, the comments and thoughts and the friendship over the net. Thank you.
Eldest's 17th birthday (Seventeen...!) Where has the time gone? We are going to celebrate with a fondue, something I remember from my childhood fondly and with the help of Lovely Lady from Threads Through My Life and my Jak, my Mom, we have three fondue pots to share between nine hungry tummies - think it's going to be a lot of fun!
Hitting a room at a time and completely removing a section, only returning what we want, really really want to stay. The rest being recycled, rehomed or thrown away. Today was the turn of the kitchen and it has been stripped of all the things we've collected, not tidied away or just not need and I feel exhausted!! but satisfied :)
My cell phone. Originally thought to be languishing out on the hills since our last walk.
My cell phone. Correctly found languishing in a pocket at home a week later.
