I have packed wellies, raincoats, tissues, cold and flu remedies, presents, a quilt commission to deliver and a donut.

what else could anyone need?

back soon.

as I kiss my children this morning and send them off to school, my heart gently weeps for those families who will never do so again.

seen when walking

this week when out walking I saw freshly fallen snow, decorated with animal tracks, and footprints.

 a farmer bringing his sheep down the lane, herding them on an off road bike, with the sheep dog balanced precariously on the back, his long tongue hanging out and his ears blown upright by the speed of the bike!

I saw fir trees delicately laced with snowflakes

and a lone set of tyre tracks where someone has bravely driven through the ford,

best of all I saw a huge holly bush, it's leaves tipped with snowy crystals and glinting in the winter sunshine.
