My week has been busy and my brain is scattered. My 'to-do' lists seem impossibly long... and I'm heading off in the morning to meet all my family in Dorset for a long weekend to celebrate my father's birthday.
We've rented a manor house (there are quite a few of us) near Burton Bradstock and have planned a weekend of relaxation, cooking together, walking and exploring, and a birthday lunch here. I've been looking forward to this for months...and of course Walter is coming too. I'm also hoping to do a little fossil hunting.
This morning the postman delivered a lovely gift from Gina - I was lucky enough to win her last giveaway, to celebrate 500 blog posts. A beautifully wrapped parcel revealed this exquisite little pin cushion jar. The detail in Gina's work has to be seen up close to be truly appreciated. I need some inspiration to sew - lately all I've been doing is repairing my jeans.
Rip City. I planted a couple of tubers, and they've been slow to flower, but worth the wait.
See, I said it would be random. I'm all over the place. Must go and pack. Back next week.
