|A red geranium - a present from myself.|
|A beautiful waxed table cloth and |
wooden butter knives from Sweden
|An arum lily to remind me of the St Helena |
countryside where they grow like weeds
Eating: Nothing until the next meal. I have declared it to be Snack - Free September in a bid to curb my constant snacking while I cook dinner each night.
Drinking: A lot of tea today. A sign of a long and bitty to-do list.
Wearing: A purple jumper dress purchased on our South African holiday. It is the first really driech day of Autumn and although it probably is not actually very cold, I am feeling it today.
Wanting: Tall Girl to let me in. She is like a bear with a sore head at the moment despite professing to love being back in England. Something is up, I just don't know what yet.
Thinking: About my friends in St Helena. I think it is the weather but I am feeling the distance today. Two of them sent me these lovely presents during their recent holidays in Europe.
Dreaming: About playing with my sewing machine when it finally arrives (and I have unpacked and put away the contents of 70 boxes in a focused and disciplined way).
