(Permission given by Lee Moran to use his drone photo, which shows the park with Farnham Castle.) We had more winter excitement on Thursday and Friday. Two winter storms collided and our little corner of the world came to a little bit of a standstill. It was very exciting and all morning I … More Emma Meets The Beast from the East
Weather: Let’s get this out of the way. It’s cold here and look at this! This happened yesterday. Dogs: Daisy got a stomach bug last week and, boy, that was unpleasant. She spent the day in the hospital, getting rehydrated. The dogs got roast chicken for a few days, while Daisy’s stomach recovered. When I … More Late February Snow
The other day AP and I were lamenting that we both gained a few pounds over the holidays and we have failed to take them off. “I suppose it’s partly my own fault,” said AP thoughtfully. Then we burst into laughter. I’m partly to blame. The other part is society’s fault, I guess. Same … More Long Time No Blog
AP and I are in Michigan with my family! It’s cold. Seriously. But it’s wonderful.
It’s well and truly the run-up to Christmas with only eight days to go. EIGHT DAYS!? My little biz is busy and I’m still filling orders for those last minute gifts. AP is also quite busy with work.

Over here in the UK, our celebration is a bit subdued. However you’re spending Thanksgiving day, I hope it’s … More Thanksgiving 2017

I’ve just let my routine of blogging slip and slide and it’s very hard to pick it up again after — … More November – Third Week
I started this post last week and now the calendar has rolled into October and I am here, with my dogs and cat, on an early Sunday evening, watching the rain come down. So much has gone on here over the past few weeks. Did I mention that we had all of our upstairs … More And now October
