*peeping around the curtains* to say a very belated (and decidedly guilty)
hellloooooooo to any of you still reading my blog. . .
I hope you are all well, getting through the winter one day at a time and
looking forward to Spring which I'm sure is only around the corner-
if only we could just see round corners!
I've been busy organizing vintage fairs, trying to keep
the wolf from the door with eBay sales, and have made a few
changes here at home which will hopefully make life easier.
I still read your lovely blogs- sigh with you laugh with you- but somehow
I seem to have stopped leaving comments.
Sending happy wishes to you all, wishing you
tons of great things for the year ahead xx

we've been rather pre-occupied removing unwelcome visitors who
took up residence in our loft. . .
a particularly large hornets nest!
Unfortunately they didn't all succumb to the powders liberally applied
to their entry/exit point under the lead flashing on the roof
and were happily still buzzing away when Mark opened the hatch,
expecting them to be well dead!
Another dose had to be sprayed directly into the nest!
A week later it was safe to go up and remove the nest which
hung just over 2 feet long and was too wide to fit through
the loft hatch opening.
Such a shame to destroy the exquisitely built colony
but alas in this case, wrong time, wrong place. . .
(and I'm everso relieved they're gone!)

a couple of weekends ago. . .
a summery Saturday afternoon at 5 o'clock to be precise
we noticed a visitor in the garden
sitting on the fence post surveying the surrounding field.
Very happy to have his photo taken, he posed this way and that
so the camera caught his best profile
before flying across the field to perch on the roadside fence
where he nearly caused a pile-up as cars slowed in amazement.
After half an hour spent hunting in the field
he had a well earned rest in the oak tree
next to the house
before gracefully swooping down
and silently taking his leave.
Doesn't get much better than that does it?

last Autumn I treated myself to a beginners crochet course
with the lovely Ali Campbell
and just before Christmas I asked all my dear friends for yarn,
and began to crochet a sampler blanket. . .
phew! I finished it today!
it's been a learning curve to say the least
but I've loved every moment. . .
and yes, I'm well and truly hooked!
