I fully intend to stop going on about the winter… just to say it is winter over here, and it is a tad cold and wet and life has become somewhat of a laundry!!!

Just a little snow…

And when it just gets too cold… have yourself a cup of tea and a cookie and your favorite book…

    Love following your days, especially the book recommendations! Can you tell me the title of the “let’s find” style book Hood 8 is reading. I’ve made something similar but that looks good!
