  1. Your weeks always sound like a well balanced mix. I try to keep some time blank in my diary for just being at home too.

  4. Those muffins look delicious.
    I make a point of not over-filling my diary anymore. Pottering around the house is just as important as anything else (at times even more so). xxx

  6. How exciting to eat exclusively from your garden! Good for you, I've have always wanted to keep a big veg garden for us but I think I'm a few years away from that yet. Can't wait to see your Prairie shawl!

    1. We only manage to eat exclusively from the garden for a couple of weeks of the year but it still feels wonderful when we do manage it :)
