Okay - you and Sue are clearly conspiring. I'm going to have to make some tomorrow - we have our final Santa tennis session on Saturday and I need to take a treat - this sounds just the ticket!

Hang in there! I hung the glittery all is calm all is bright banner that I made a year or two back, only to have the cat attack it. It now says All is cal^^ , which just about summed up my mental state yesterday. I put myself to bed early and have high hopes that today will be better.

Oh the light, the light!
Can't say anything after Tess! Don't you hate it when there's a brilliant comment right before yours and all you can possibly sound is insipid?

It is a bit of a manic time of year, but now my boys have finished school, I am hoping for a little chunk of time looking inwards, hunkering down and perhaps even a little bit of knitting. Bring it on!

Megan, this is really really good.
Toggle Commented Nov 23, 2014 on Writing Practice :: Four at the scent of water
The standing on a chair one was 'bench monday' - I still miss that one. My mother had those soap in a bundle things in her linen cupboard, but mine lacks any such finery. It's quite hard to think of any treasures of my own - I am a hoarder of anything which might come in handy but am typically fairly unsentimental. Must look in a few drawers and get back to you.... Of course there is every chance that the drawer may be so full of stuff that it falls on my foot and pins me to the ground. I may be some time.

Aah! You're doing one - hooray - it'll be great. And you know I'd be there if I had crochet skills….. Especially given my levels of mitt envy.
Oh, I'm in the middle of it. So good.

Ah, I watched Dowton yesterday - hubs was complaining he had to avoid the Metro on Monday for fear of spoilers…!

Um Mon, did you take it off your sister and bring it home??? Wouldn't like to be your Mum when you question her….
I couldn't do 3am either. Nasty. In fact, 6 for school this morning was painful enough!

That is a truly good quote. Feeling the need to write it in big letters somewhere.

Your lovely post has reminded me how much I love the woods in Autumn. My closest ones are a little way off, but I feel I must pay them a visit soon.

Buy the cowboy boots! I've been coveting a pair of grey suede ankle boots with more than a whiff of Nashville to them. I may yet give in.

Sounds delicious!
Oh dear. But good sewing weather though? I'll not mention that it's still scorchio here then.
Send a little rain this way - my garden looks more parched than Tuscany! Though not tomorrow - we are off to the beach...
It is gorgeous Megan. I too get a little sweaty handed at the prospect of lace. I have made my way through it on the odd occasion, but only with a lifeline every single pattern repeat.

I have four days to go and I'm hanging on by the fingernails. Today, I boycotted a concert. J was singing 2 songs with his whole year, it was a 3 hour extravaganza. I decided to cut my losses.

Just think of the opportunities - when you are cross with the offspring or M you can tell them to talk to the hand.

Oh dear. Not so tasty. But the bag is pretty enough to take your mind off it!
The routine seems to have hit me full force post-Easter. Life, eh? Loving your placemats.

Hang in there Lily - though it is a tough thing for her to go through (and you, mama) if she is being well supported at school she has every chance of coming out of the other side a wiser and stronger individual. Hard to bear that in mind when, if you are anything like, me the mother lion in you just wants to rip the bullies to shreds.

Now I feel really ashamed. Like the evil fairy at the wedding. But I'm not - I hope they will be blissfully happy and they will know they have a dear friend who truly cares about them.
