I am not sure that I would feel comfortable reading this story, having been born shortly after the war ended.

I have been reading Celia's blog for many years now, always informative and visually stimulating.

Goodness, what a lot of meaningles twaddle! It doesn't actually give one any idea of what it smells like.

They look very good. I have the pattern printed out but have yet to do anything further. Besides, it is far to humid to knit this week.

Oh, winter - so soon? My partner, many years ago, bought a litre of orange paint and drove home to find, at his destination, that the lid had come off and there was an orange layer over the back seats... you were lucky.

Lovely post Anne. Those gulls are truly scary aren't they? That church is like almost every other Weslyan church I have ever seen. As for the brownies, I certainly wouldn't have opted for the mint one, that just seems so wrong.

I shall be investigating that place, it looks extremely interesting. I liked your pictures very much and I know that I have seen images of those tiles somewhere else on the interwebz and other tiles too. I have a vague memory that they were made by one factory. I also like the clock, the dry-stone walling seat and the statue. Thanks for posting Anne.

I am pleased that someone is getting the sunshine - I have my heating on. Aren't HM's dresses sublime?

I have this on CDs, read by Mr. Bennett himself and I love it. I listen to it at least once a year.

That doll - I had a similar one, I gave it a name even though I hated it. I want to remember so that I can exorcise it! ( This time, I really meant to comment on your blog. xx)

I have pledged, it sounds like an exciting project to be involved in. Thank you for the nudge.

You are such a temptress, but fortunately this colour does not form part of my palette so I can save my money...

As good as that breakfast looked, I bet you didn't have Stornoway black pudding. Whereas I ate it at least three times last week in Argyll, it was delicious as always.

Typepad HTML Email Thank you for that, I shall investigate. I have been having a few problems with laptop and router recently, perhaps they don’t like this incessant rain that we had yesterday. Toni.

I concur with your observation on the Siskin. They never seem to stay still enough for me to photograph them...
