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.
