The new heating should be going by Christmas (or so we’ve been told) and our new (to us) dining table should be here as soon as we’ve got the dining room walls sorted.
Its been crazy busy here what with the big move taking place, Christmas round the corner and hanging doors, wallpaper etc…
So that’s where we are. No Christmassy post, in fact NO Christmassy things at work and sadly only a few at home. I adore Christmas, but when we have to choose between putting a few decorations for a little while and using the energy to decorate the house for real I have to choose the latter.
On Friday we are downing tools and sprinkling tinsel over anything not moving in a bid to hide these boxes, so bah humbug until then! (eeek only joking, I’m really, really not like that at all!!)
I was lucky enough to head off to Edinburgh earlier in the month, so my very sorry contribution to all of the pretty pics in Bloggyland are here, hurriedly loaded up and all!!
Hello winter, hello frost and smoky chimneys. Hello low suns and clear skies, winter fêtes and crnchy ground. The leaves from autumn yet to be cleared are no longer damp and brown. They are white; everything is tinged with brilliant diamonds with a million facets. The earth does not smelly musky. The air stings my nose and what little I can sense is logs and coal.
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
