I’m not sure that there is any news from The Willows that doesn’t relate to a) my mania for postcard sending and receiving; b) Partner-who-loves-tea working herself into the ground; c) the pair of us slipping out for illicit cups of coffee and assessing the many local cafés; or d) wandering into local charity shops to seek that unmissable bargain. I’m having difficulty making any of these things into something really newsworthy and fascinating for you.
So here are some pretty trivial items…
My annual self-portrait. I don’t think the passport office would accept it but I assure you it’s better than full frontal face.
My latest money box. I haven’t decided what its proceeds will be used for yet. Any suggestions?
The study wall.
Son-who-watches-films making the first use of his new mortar and pestle.
The fields between Pensby and Heswall on a sunny January morning while most of the rest of the country seems to be under three feet of water.
Today’s happy fact – to combat the blues:- Not only do sea otters mate for life, but they sleep holding hands with their mates so that they don't float away from each other. How adorable is that?!
