Pancakes & Teddy Bears

Frosty snowdrops in the churchyard



Things That Have Made Me Happy This Week


Pancakes for Shrove Tuesday - I had mine with maple syrup and lemon

Watercolour skies on my journeys to and from work

An adorable teddy bear which I got for the bargain price of 49p ! He was supposed to be £2.99 but had a second tag on for 49p. I named him Digby

Visiting my friend Nancy yesterday at her care home and seeing her well and in good spirits

Our blue hyacinths doubled in height this week. Yesterday I decided to cut them and put them in a jug

Jack Frost visited this morning and the girls and I had a lovely walk on crunchy ground, seeing the wonderful swirly frost patterns

Pizza and our favourite wine for tea last night

Snowdrops and crocuses - Spring is finally on its way

Finding another lovely jigsaw in Oxfam - pictures to follow !

My new prescription swimming goggles - hopefully I'll be able to swim better now I can leave my glasses behind and see where I'm going underwater

A new friendship blossoming ? One of my lovely blog followers and I have decided to exchange jigsaws - this could be the start of a wonderful new friendship

Stay warm and cosy,

  2. What a nice post. Your teddy was a bargain at that price, he is a handsome fellow too. It is lovely when we make real-life friends with bloggy friends, one of the unexpected joys of blogging. A fellow jigsaw fan sounds perfect for you! X
