What makes me Happy
Sometimes when I get away from work early I rush home and get to see daylight.
When I leave for work it’s dark and cold.
And when I come home it’s dark and cold.
But sometimes, on very rare occasions I get home and its still daylight.
And on those very rare occasions that I do get home and if its still daylight I take Daisy out for a walk.
She always gets nice walks, but I do miss the evenings we had in Summer when it was still bright when I got home. So when it’s light enough to go for a longer wonder around the village we go off the beaten track and head over the golf course to the sea.
She runs around and I pad over the sand away in my own little world, day dreaming and planning, and letting my imagination flow where it will.
Daisy on the other hand runs like the wind, drags seaweed along with her, and snaps her little teeth at any shells coming into shore riding on the small waves.
Homemaking, put quite simply is a form of art...I dont mean this in a self righteous way at all. I only mean that we should really aim to take care of our homely enviroment and not look down upon those who wish to do it.
I feel-or maybe i should say, I certainly have witnessed- occasions where women are too quick to turn on each other and put down the choices some make which too closely resemble choices our Grandmothers made, or paths they had no option but to follow.
I welcome anyone who takes the time to read my rambley, witless, chatter, but most importantly I welcome anyone who feels the same! We should be proud we can make our own decisions, and mine is to follow all happhazard forays into the world of homemaking and crafting.
The Husband and I have just found out we will be moving to Singapore in November 2013. 'TH's work will take us there for 2 years-hopefully we will save up for a house, have lots of adventures, visit lots of new places and maybe just have a little one. Right now we live in a little house in the middle of a field in the North East of Scotland. We moved from a seaside cottage which we moved to from a little flat in the suburbs. Our current house has lots of land and we are surrounded by trees on the edge of the glens. We have a westie who takes up all of our time and is utterly content with it staying that way! I love cooking, baking, gardening, and crafting. This blog is a collection of thoughts, pictures and general chit-chat.
Thank you for stopping by!x
Warm Cuddles on a bad day,
Warm Cuddles on a good day,
Bows, ribbons and lace,
Days out and adventures,
Baking beautiful things that make people smile,
Warm blankets and squishy pillows,
Any excuse to celebrate
