Just Now I Am…

Reading Dandy Gilver and the Reek of Red Herrings. I snatch pages of this here and there throughout the day. I settle my head into my feather pillow at the end of the day, find my hot water bottle with my feet, and read just a little bit more. If you haven’t discovered this series yet, do! They feature the eponymous Dandy, who has a detective agency with her friend Alec. They are set in the 1920s and are just the right mix of preposterousness and plausibility! In this tale, body parts have been turning up in barrels of red herrings…

Crocheting a red lacey wrap for a friend who is expecting a baby any day now. It is for her to have round her shoulders to keep them warm when she is feeding her baby at night. I would have loved to do a proper bed jacket, but I need something with a nice simple pattern repeat that I can pick up and put down.

Cooking lots of baby food! Jessica loved spinach, sweet potato and hummus….sometimes all together! Tonight I am making us a simple slow cooked bolognese pasta bake. When I have more time I will share my experiments with Ferrero Rocher brownies…

Wearing red lipstick of course!

Listening to Radio 4 and a happy babbling bubbins.

  1. Hello! So good to ‘see’ you here. Life has it’s seasons. Each one has it’s own beauty and challenges. I remember how hard it was and all the busy-ness of being a full-time at home mom with babies. But it was more wonderful than not. And I LOVED it overall. Looking back I now realize how fast is passed—in a flash really. And there is little I am able to recall. And there were no blogs then; and I was never one to keep a diary. I wish I had. But, c’est la vie. You are finding your way, just as I did. As we all must do. Good for you, joining the WI. (I have only heard of it on BBC shows/movies.) And writing for a magazine and another blog. And your upcoming trip to Spain—how exciting. Life is wonderful mostly isn’t it. On the hard days it is good to remember ‘this too shall pass”. It always does; and then as my wise doctor said ‘it’s on to the next thing’. Always—the cycle of life. Wishing you all happy Spring!

    1. This too shall pass has long been one of my favourite mantras, along with ‘all shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well’. I think Life Is Mostly Wonderful will definitely be joining them! Xx
