Fragrant green tea and fruit toast for an unhurried breakfast on the back step.
A thoughtful and generous package from the lovely Bells. I recently won a contest to celebrate the anniversary of Bells’s wonderful blog, and was lucky enough to receive a perfect little project bag made by her own fair hands (I love the fabric combination), and a skein of the most swoon-worthy yarn from Knitabulous. It is the 50/50 silk and wool blend 4 ply in Summer pudding, a lovely subtle rhubarby red. What a glorious shawl this will make – maybe this one … Thanks so much, Bells!
Shells collected from the seaside on the weekend by my boy. I love how he marvelled over each one, no matter how imperfect, noticing the colours or sheen.
Hardly timely news, but young Mr. R started school this year. There were no tears, just much excitement, pride in a new uniform and school bag, and a fair bit of uncertain clinginess. I have always worried about this, as I tend to remember the less positive aspects of my own school days, but I feel reassured that current schooling methods are more sensitive to, well, sensitive kids. What I wasn’t counting on was the extent of the change to our day-to-day life and routines. Apart from the hectic double drop off before work, there is a whole new community that we are part of. Kind of wonderful, but also kind of exhausting.
