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...


What to do on a surprisingly sunny Saturday?

You could start by celebrating a birthday...

by drinking frothy coffee
 and planning
by baking

by setting a special spot in the garden
 by slathering double cream and raspberry jam on hot fruit scones
by serving super gooey gluten free choc-brownies made by Eldest
by filling plates with delicious and sinful nibbles supplied by fav sis-in-law
by putting on a feathered and furry floor show 
by picking flowers (the first 'crop' of the season)
by inviting family to 
sit in the sun and
drink tea...

HaPpY BirTHdaY MUM!!

Thank you for sharing your day with us :) 

Now, we are watching and counting and cringing or supporting the acts of Eurovision 2016!

...and the 12 points go to.... (significant pause) 
fingers being chewed
waiting waiting waiting
the winner
