If Wishes Were Horses…

Today is another reveal day for The Endeavourers. How do these reveals come round so fast? Our theme this quarter was Wishes and, when that was selected by Mr Random Generator, I immediately thought of the line, ‘If wishes were horses, beggars would ride…’ but I decided to let it lie. I was hoping for […]

Fabulous Birds and Amazing Animals

Happy Sunday! In my last post I mentioned that I was about to embark on an extraordinary adventure and it really did exceed any expectation or imagination I had when I wrote that. I travelled to Sri Lanka with Mr RH and two of our sons to go to a wedding that included a church […]

Merry Mid Winter

Last year, around this time, I wrote a small story called ‘The Figgy Gosling’ but I didn’t share it here because I didn’t have time to make pictures. Somehow, a year has rolled by and I haven’t got much further… But I do like to make a Mid Winter post and mark the fact that […]

Looking back, I see that in […]

A Golden Hare at Apple Time

So here we are again in apple time and the year heaves itself round another turn. And how did that happen? Barely a knit knitted, barely a stitch stitched. They say the older you get, the faster time flies. But surely I’m not suddenly aged so fast that a whole year has sped by in […]

Everything Stops for Tea

The first very exciting thing that happened this week was that my younger daughter, who has been in New Zealand for a year, came home. Of course, that called for tea and cake! The second was that we hosted a Vintage Afternoon Tea Hen Party for my elder daughter and that, of course, called for […]
