Joining in this for the first time!


Walking over the misty Sussex Downs. Thinking Ravilious.


Reading: three sorts of scary.

Watching and waiting – think the narcissi are winning!


Listing: in the Etsy shop – cosy stuff! Cushions, cowls leg warmers…

AND plenty of time spent BlogLoving: this month I have particularly enjoyed:

  1. Hi Susan. Nice to meet you, it is a pleasure to discover your blog. Thanks for your mention, very kind.
