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...




Today I woke up having had a straight 7 hours uninterrupted sleep which after a moment or two turned into a 9 hour sleep. Must have needed it.

Today Eldest spent the day with Girlfriend. Youngest was bored.

Today we ate Himself's first and absolutely brilliant attempt at baking a rich fruit cake. Yum.

Today I finally baked my first half decent carrot cake (there have been some disastrous versions over the years - including one cake even the birds WOULD NOT eat).

Today Youngest's size 10 feet needed new walking boots.

Today the house is gently filled with the scent of stargazer lilies from my valentine flowers.

Today Geriatric Dog (formerly known as Giddy Dog) had a not so funny turn and is now quietly sleeping next to the radiator - an old and doddery dog :(  Not looking good.

Today I did some in-car knitting and at-home tinking........ Should have concentrated a bit more.


Today has been quiet.

Today is nearly over. A rather all too brief weekend.

 Tomorrow Geriatric Dog goes to work with me, hopefully she will come back home too...
