I've never been very good at managing my time properly and just lately I seem to have become even worse than usual. Time used sat around thinking about what I should be doing/want to be doing/need to be doing and nothing much done at the end of it.
Oh well I'm sure I'll figure it all out at some point.
One thing I really should mention is a lovely little parcel I received recently from Miss Peagreen Kitty. Inside the pink tissue was some delectable G&B chocolate and yes the wrapper on the milk chocolate looks like that because I had already eaten some before I remembered I needed to snap the contents! A string of beads to add to my ever growing collection and the sparkliest blue brooch that had once belonged to her nan. How very touched I was to be entrusted with such a treasure. Thank you Kitty.
Diane, who goes on the most wonderful walks, recently posted about one she and her husband did round Haddon estate. This reminded me of a coffee pot I bought about 20 years ago when I worked in a shop selling china and glass. It only cost me £1.00 as the top part of the handle has a hairline crack where it meets the pot and so couldn't be sold. Apparently the design was inspired by the tapestries which hang in the Hall.
Now this post isn't entitled random for nothing! Next up is a small cutting I made from a magazine years ago of a Scottish home decked out at Christmas. I liked the homespun feel of this sock 'stocking' and being the thrifty shopper I am wasn't going to buy brand new ones and so have been on the look out (when I remember) for some I can use in our home.
