Another birthday has been and gone, and so lovely to receive this precious treasure in the post from a much loved friend.

This is our first winter here in this house. What was a welcome sanctuary from the sun and heat of summer has turned into a dark and shady place in the cold of winter. You can't have it all, but it would be nice.

… what else has been happening apart from jaunts outside at night with the camera? A bit of book buying and reading for one.

Thanks to Catherine for your recommendation. A good, light read and all finished so if you would like it let me know and I'll pass it on. When I was buying it I saw the other and thought, "What's better than one book about a vintage clothing store? Two." Completely different stories though, and the second went off suddenly at the end on a tangent that left me with a what the? Now I've gone back to my old faithfuls and have dug out A Year in Provence from the bookshelf. I love rereading books after a big gap of years. It's like rediscovering a long lost friend. 

A new friend discovered is this. I don't like ironing as can be witnessed sometimes by my slightly crumpled, wash and wear attire. I do iron some items but spending an afternoon removing all traces of a crease is not me, but I love ironed pillowcases. I love ironed pillowcases that smell of roses even more. Waking up with the aroma of roses is bliss. 

Now I'm going to go off on a tangent. Little Miss R decided to use my camera when I wasn't looking yesterday and I've just discovered this photo she took amongst dozens of others. Thank goodness for digital cameras. I do believe my darling dog is smiling- I may be biased but isn't she gorgeous.

And now I must dash as I have party invitations waiting by the front door to deliver so can't be late to school.  

Have a great week, and leave a comment if you can as I love receiving them

Fog rolled in last night and I would have missed it if it wasn't for the pooch and her visit outside before bed. So glad there wasn't someone lurking in the trees; my best scream was ready just in case...
