These ars some stones I painted for Mum and Dad - I found them in the loft while sorting 'stuff'.

Part of the objective of sorting the loft was to de-clutter.  Instead I've put up a frame to hold even more of my old ornaments that were in the loft!  C'est la vie.

Thank You

Tuesday 11th October 2011

Jo has a large collection of cards from grateful clients and students. In this respect, if no other, counselling and training are very rewarding.

I love my fishy wall hanging that Rich gave me.

My Audrey

It takes a special girl to give her husband an Audrey Hepburn piggy bank for their wedding anniversary!  It's been added to my Audrey mug and coaster.

Going through books from the loft I keep coming across books with dedications in them.

How small can they get?

Heart Beat Monitor

Friday 30th September 2011

Bought a cheap heart beat monitor today - it's just gone up - probably the thought of working in the loft has upped my stress levels.

Tuesday 27th September 2011

There are still quite a few flowers out in the garden. It's a case of braving the wind and wet to get out there occasionally and look at them.  Poppies and Welsh Poppies are among my favourite flowers but poppies are such unreliable createures to grow - their seeds can remain dormant for decades until kicked into life by ploughing or other disturbance of the soil.


Monday 26th September 2011

The cold weather is on its way so I've treated Partner-who-loves-tea to some knee socks. Knowing her taste in socks I went for the subdued colours...
