There's instructions inside on how to make a cushion bed head, I'll let you draw your own conclusions .... Andi, I know you will! .... A rare Op Shop delight also in the form of 'Attic in the Wind' - just the most beautiful children's book I've seen. Here are some of the pictures, I wanted to scan them all! (Published in 1966).

Pressing the 'locator' button on the phone, to try and find the handset, reminds me of playing 'hot and cold' when I was a kid.

But I haven't got a stitch to wear. A friend called with a spare ticket to Paul Weller tonight, I declined the generous offer. What's happening to me? I'd rather just stay in and knit my scarf. Putting it down to winter! So I've been spring cleaning (see what I mean? WTF is going on???) I just love it when everything is back in it's place, benches cleaned, side tables dusted - I do NOT enjoy the process, but love the end result.
Have fun at the concert!

I've been tagged by Drewzel, for a 'Tree of Happiness Award' So um, thanks very much. I have to list 6 things that make me happy, and then tag 6 people to play, who will (I presume) list 6 things that make them happy! So here are 6 things that are making me happy right now: 1. Miss B's (pictured) soft, white belly - gorgeous. 2. Miss P using very long words, in context but with funny pronunciation. 3. The gently hum of my sewing machine 4. Spring, ALMOST springing - cherry blossoms blooming (my favourite flower) 5. Being with my girlfriends: having coffee, dinner, drinks etc. 6. Big D's bread and butter pudding. all fairly simple stuff really! Now, I'd like to know what is making these girls happy at the mo: Ingrid, Andi, Pip, Leah, Alexandra and Linda

A year after this came Tim, then a year later a move to Africa and me.
When Parker looked at the photo, she asked: 'Is that Harry Potter Mum?'
