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...


My Five on Friday 13.02

A quiet list of gratitude, acknowledging that it is the little things that make a day all that better.

  • Confirming my decision to live a simpler life - relinquishing things that drove me then wrung me out. That perfect realisation that yes, it was a correct choice and I am grateful for it.
  • The NHS - at a time when it seems the world has gone mad, these people, however fallible and normal, step up and not away when someone ill needs them. 
  • Lunch with friends - catching up with someone I'd not chatted with since October.
  • That simple pleasure of talking, walking and drawing.
  • Being on the hills with that dilly dog and Himself.
Have a lovely weekend xxxxxxx

  1. Great list. Best bit is the Photo of dilly dog. I too converted to a simpler life ages ago; am nearly there.... Sunny today so you had better get out and go walkies!

  2. What a wonderful list! Love the photo of your dog. Thanks for joining us at the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop!

    That looks so delicious.
    I love those old rock walls too.

  6. Moss is such an elegant looking dog and so photogenic

  7. I cannot think of a more simple way of being grateful(through your words) for the things we often take for granted or do without a second thought. Did you realise you have centred on friendship & connection this month which is so vital to all of us as humans & we are losing that in this day & age. Thanks Kate for the gentle reminder. Take care & huggles. PS: I'll try & do my post today.

  8. That’s an excellent list! Stay safe,, be well,

    Simpler can be better, although remarkably difficult to achieve, at least for some of us.
