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...


Five on Friday

Morning fellow 'Fivers', a cool and dark morning out there today - a good day to think on things that have made me smile this last week.

Cracker jokes - not something I would normally think of as being particularly amusing or satisfying. At most they are groan-makers. But this one ... this one made me smile and has continued to do so on and off all week. So much so, I have actually kept the slip of paper in my cellphone cover to remind me of a lovely evening with Himself's extended family last weekend.

Sharing a love of street art - Eldest and I spent a lovely few hours in Hebden Bridge this week, fettling in the bookshops, the charity (op) shops and hunting down the street art. We found new pieces of wall adorned work - both modern and previously unnoticed older creativity. I will do a post on them some time.

The reaction of a recipient to a hand made gift - positively priceless xx

Fudge - the sweet sinful moment when eating a small block of home made fudge - bliss.

Walking - I have mentioned before that walking is both pleasure and torment, my saviour and my nemesis. A delight as well as a chore - but I am truly grateful for the simple act of being able to walk regularly as well as the positive affect it has had on my life. Try it - it works xx

This is the last Five on Friday - Gratitude for 2019. If you have enjoyed reading them or joining in and want them to continue next year - just give a shout out :)

  1. Good cracker joke! Oooh fudge, not sure I've ever made some and had best not start to make any! I agree with the benefits of walking, just this month I've done very little! I'm game for more Five on Friday posts.

  2. Ohhh I remember home made fudge. Years and years and years ago, though. Not supposed to eat chocolate. -sigh- But... Overall health is more important. -smile- But I do remember it!

    "Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays
    'Cause no matter how far away you roam
    When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze
    For the holidays you can't beat home sweet home!"

  3. So many fabulous things to be grateful for especially the fudge that is my favourite although I have never tried to make myself.

  4. As always, a thoughtful and lovely five.
    The best for me in your final - walking - not doing nearly enough here at present.
