Preparing for Winter- Aran knitting


Squeak is in hibernation mode since the cold weather started.


The back of an aran jumper to be Lovely Husband’s Christmas present. The front is also done, but I need to get a move on with the sleeves.


Outside our little wood mouse “Hunca Munca” (blame Beatrix Potter- I encountered her at an impressionable age) is still gathering the grains the pigeons push off of the bird table. I like to think that she is gathering her own Christmas dinner. She is so sweet even though mice are an official nuisance.


She lives under the slab you can see on the right.

If I stand very still back from the windows, I can sneak the occasional photograph. In this cold weather spare a thought for the birds and put out what you can. Just this morning after sweeping the cherry leaves from the patio, a robin came looking for worms.

It’s starting to feel a bit Christmassy  now I’ve seen my 1st robin redbreast. 🙂

Thank you all so much for your tech suggestions in my last blog post, for replacing being here. I will let you know how I get on over the holidays.

I will always only be an email away whatever I decide.

Friends are the family you choose for yourself.
