I remember seeing those drawings and I felt very privileged.

Two delights for me today, your links to the videos and four new Kindle books, thanks to BRWombat. Thank you both.

I am still trying to catch up - am I a little closer now? Love the pictures of the cars and the label on the wine is a hoot.

You manage, always, to choose pretty yarn. Those look delightful.

It's a nice idea but - the price! The boxes remind me of boxes of photographic paper that we used to use in the dark-room.

I tried to comment on the Emu post but could not for some reason. Anyway, they are scary things, those. Nice walk this time though, excepting the horses - they are scary to me. I am so far behind because we went to Ayrshire and Argyll where we had glorious sunshine, it was heavenly.

One feels that Lady Marchmain would not approve... I used to work for the Mayor of Newport [South Wales] and had to learn Silver Service and Folding of the Napkins, such a lot of fun was had. We learned those skills so that we would not be found wanting when their Lordships, who were judges at the Quarter Assizes, were in residence. They brought their own cooks and butlers but Mansion house staff filled in for the rest. That is where I first drank Champagne and ate Caviar. Happy days.

Interesting - I should like to try a garden centre after a couple of Margaritas I think. Not that I would buy any trees...

This series has totally passed me by. I like the chairs though, there are even wheelchairs which impressed me.

Oh my, those colours are lovely and the striping is perfect. How do you manage not to get a hole at the gusset?

I love what you have done with your 'About' picture. You are the same age as my daughter. Alan Alda is 81? That must make me...oh!

That ship is enormous! I regularly log in to the Oban Webcam and watch which ships/boats tie up on the quay and I have a link that tells me when a boat is expected to arrive or to leave, I spend hours watching. That brownie looks tasty.

Pretty Snowdrops. I like all the above mentioned things too, except the old pewter.

I found the same link as Eileen did but she beat me to it. Never mind, it is an interesting article anyway. You made me smile several times in this post Anne, thank you.

No freezer! Not much at all in the way of kitchen gadgets. I have survived without them for almost a quarter of a century.

I have never attempted soda bread since I hear that it doesn't last more than one day and, since I live alone, I need my bread to last for a week at least.
