Chilly days

Winter seems to have come quite early here and the plants are still very confused thinking it is already autumn. Sweet peas, jonquils and soon to be daffodils are appearing way before they should. But even a chilly 13 degrees outside finds Larry still enjoying his solitude with a good book (beside the cyclamen that have appeared at the correct time)……

 We've been back from our little break for over a week now but I did record a little history including the iconic Big Lobster at Kingston on the way home…..

 Great coffee stop……..
Since being home the pencil has been busy sketching ideas for the Beatrix Potter book but I have also had time to make Maisie some pinafores……... 

 We've also celebrated 37 wonderful years of marriage during the week and one night enjoyed the quiet of playing a board game together……I am sure I didn't know what an "etui" was before I took up sewing!……..

 Larry also celebrated his fourth attempt at retirement with his new card!!…….
One morning as we travelled down our southern expressway towards the city the cloud formation just looked like snow capped peaks……it was cold enough to snow despite the sun shining!…..
And finally….THE BOOK!! I am hoping tonight the new website will go live. 
Stay tuned and thanks so much for popping by x


  1. Congratulations to you and Larry on another wedding anniversary to celebrate. What a lovely photo!
    So looking forward to the book launch - and the new website. Cold and wet here! Alison

  2. I am looking forward to seeing your new book! I just might have to order it all the way from Australia if no one in the states has it! I hope my husband doesn't have 4 attempts at retirement - this better be the last time he is going back to work - I want to travel again but will need to wait 2-3 years now. It looks like you had a wonderful time on your trip and wonderful photos.

  3. Congratulations, great achievement, the photo is very 70's! Am off to the big smoke today for my annual appointment.

  4. Congratulations, a lovely wedding photo. I am looking forward to seeing the new website. Winter must have come everywhere, it is bitter here in NZ today, I am not looking forward to going outside today.
