Today I have been mostly

April 23, 2009

Packing. And that does not make for fun pictures. Although I will try to remember to take photos of the flat when we’re all moved in and unpacked. Even though we’re only renting so I can’t decorate everything the way I would like.

In the mean time, here are some pictures from a lovely walk I had with Matt a couple of weeks ago. The first signs of spring were visible and the weather was finally brightening up.


We followed mysterious paths through woodland most probably inhabited by faries and elves…


And stopped to admire the handiwork of the locals…


Before enjoying the view over the fields to the harbour.

We also had a recent visit to the RSPB reserve at Arne on a beautiful evening. I didn’t take many pictures but the changing light as we walked was lovely.



Wish us luck with the move! I’m sure it will go swimmingly, and I’ll be back with tales of our adventures in our (however temporary) new home soon!

There has been a lot happening around here in the last couple of weeks. The Easter holidays are our busiest time for children’s activities at the reserve and Matt and I are moving into a new flat next weekend! It’s very exciting but I haven’t had as much time for blogging as I’d like! I will try to catch up with some of the things we’ve been up to over the next few weeks as I have some nice pictures I want to share.



Some things that have been making me happy today….

Hedgerows adorned in white as the blackthorn comes into blossom

The look of astonishment on a small boy’s face as we explained how tadpoles turn into frogs by growing legs either side of their tail

Matt cooking me Chinese chicken with egg-fried rice

Finally getting a copy of Softies

A visit from my favourite one-eyed dog


I hope you’re having a nice weekend too!

I had a lovely surprise through the letterbox today as the returns had arrived from the charm swap I was in last month. I made these key charms for the swap and the ones I received in return were so beautiful I had to share them.


Even the packaging was beautiful and original for each one…








Thanks so much to a truly talented bunch of ladies!
