Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...


Thoughts and ramblings and Chrimbly countdown number 6

Welcome back to the blogisphere Jak - I've missed you :)

 6th December...only 15 days to the longest night, to winter solstice, to yule...... then sun light starts to return to the northern hemisphere, I can't wait :)

6 miles to where I work
 the 6th wooden station of the cross
 Info-boards high up on the moors sharing quiet snippets of history.  Translating the lumps and bumps under the reeds and moorland grasses as mine shafts and shelters. The day we were there it was icy cold and very wet, I would not have liked to have worked up there in those conditions.

PS today I am hosting a festive wreath making day - I have done for several years now and I love it. My house will be filled with the scents of the season, with food,  with family and friends - fantastic! Photos to follow I promise :) :)

Joining up with Julie every day as we celebrate the chrimbly count down :) 
Why don't you take a look and see who else has joined :)


  1. You work quite near to one of my cousins, who lives in Austwick. Not a part of the country I know, but my cousin loves it. Joy x x

  2. I'm sure it will be a wonderful, it always has been in the past. Can't wait to see pics. If I get time I intend to make a wreath or garland and can use your pics for inspiration x

  3. I wish I live closer I would have joined you on the festive wreath making

  9. I simply too can't wait for the light to start appearing-not so fussed about the mornings but evening after work is a killer, not long though.
    Enjoy your festivities in with wreath making group, sounds fun.
