Geez Louise

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!!

“Nothing in the world is quite as adorably lovely as a robin when he shows off and they are nearly always doing it.”

The Magic

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Winter Time

Hello winter, hello frost and smoky chimneys. Hello low suns and clear skies, winter fĂȘtes 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.
