This week has been a busy one for me, a week of catching up. A mixture of happy social times spent catching up with friends as well as some very time consuming and brain numbing hours spent catching up with my accounts and taxes. It's the usual merry jumble of January and I do quite enjoy the fullness of my days when they run like this. Even when I'm spending hours at my laptop crunching numbers into a spreadsheet, it reminds me how amazingly grateful I am to be making a living out of something I love so much. One of the friends I had coffee with this week is someone I've not had a chance to ..read more

Isn't it a lovely thing when we can gaze at a simple collection of colours and conjure up another time and place? I've been doing exactly that this past week - using these soft, Springfrost colours to remind myself that we are slowly edging through winter towards a lighter, brighter time of the year. This pretty yarn palette has really has helped lift my spirits, both the colour therapy and the repetitive, soothing rhythm of working those squishy rows to calm my mind. Last week I journeyed down to Dorset, and as it's a pretty full-on day of travel involving three different trains across seve ..read more

Hellooo! I'm really happy to be here chatting blankety things with you this morning, and I hope you're all doing OK out there in whatever weather the planet is dishing up to you. It's been a very chilly week here, and I've wondered (not for the first time) how non-hooky folks cope without a pile of crochet blankets to tuck into when the temperature falls? In my house, my blankets are piled on every piece of furniture, so if you're sitting or sleeping then you'll have a handmade blanket to cosy under. They feel like such an essential part of home life, and with each passing year I appreciate t ..read more

It's been very grey and dismal here in my part of the world and we've had a huge amount of rainfall during the past week. The little beck is close to overflowing, the fields on the outskirts of town are flooded and footpaths are soggy and muddy. It's the kind of weather I know to expect in winter but still, I can't help myself longing for some bright, sunny cold frosty days instead of the endless shades of dim grey. Yesterday afternoon I happened to look out of the window just as a huge arc of a rainbow was gently fading away above the rooftops, and it really made me smile in that moment. A t ..read more

♥ Early November brought the first frosts and our seven o'clock morning walks were suddenly very chilly. Such a beautiful and invigorating way to start the day though, I love the energy it gives me. ♥ Continuing to walk around my lovely little rural home town, observing the beauty of the changing seasons. ♥ Even on damp, dull days the autumn colours cheered my spirits and I took so much pleasure from being out underneath the trees. ♥ Most weekday mornings I head out by myself for an hour or so, mostly to pick up groceries or run errands around the town.  I realised just the other day ..read more

Thank you for all the kind words you sent my way after my blog post yesterday, it's been something special to receive so much feel-good from you all and for me to digest your wise words and take your advice. I've been thinking a lot about my blog today, and remembering how much I love to create and share my stories here in this space - blogging for my own pleasure has always been my priority since day one and that hasn't changed over the years. Having said that, I've learnt that I do still need to give myself permission to take a break when I need it, and to place value on time spent away fro ..read more

Hellloooo......hello, hello!! I thought it was high time I re-opened my window to welcome you back into the Attic, thanks as always for taking the time to visit. It's been a few weeks of my sleep being off kilter and my chatty voice refusing to come forth, so I've needed to withdraw a little and patiently wait it out. I've also just come back from a week away, as in properly AWay-away, a fully fledged holiday where I disconnected from life online and spent some wonderful time with Little Lady just the two of us. I'll tell you more about that another time as my writing voice is still a bit cro ..read more
