On our return from the Gala the postman had left a parcel in the lobby, a wonderful giveaway from Mary at trundlingthroughlife.blogspot.co.uk/ along with a stunning card that she had made. Thank you so much Mary, I was thrilled.
A wonderful trio of books ready for the Winter months, such appropriate titles too. I did smile at how much the card matched the lovely colour of my plant.
Slowly but surely I have started to add a few Autumn touches here and there. We are not doing much this year as we are planning on getting some of the indoor jobs done. Tiling the fireplace and kitchen, boxing in the electrics and decorating to name but a few.
A new addition is the ash bucket, I was so excited when I bought that on our recent trip to visit family.
A note on an old project: sometime ago I added some cotton crochet to a face cloth in readiness for our move. I finally got them out for our latest guests to use. Sadly the colour has run out of the cotton yarn. I am so disappointed, that has never happened before. The water used was tepid as it was for the girls baths prior to our pyjama party.
Mickey joined in the fun too. A film and sweet treat in bed, does it get any better than that?
Finally, a great find at the charity shop last week. A metal egg holder for £1, the perfect addition to my kitchen.
See you soon.
