Happy Valentine's day P... I love you.

What a sweet way to enjoy your morning coffee on Valentines day? I love traditional blue and white Cornishware, but this red and white version of the mugs has me wondering if there is room in the cupboard for two more...

No power means no heat, so tonight I was glad that I picked up this cosy Melin Tregwynt wool blanket last week, as I snuggled up waiting for the lights and radiators to come back on.


We've been plagued by evening power cuts since early December, including New Year's day. The power went out as I started to cook supper earlier today and as I fumbled about in the dark looking for candles, I decided that it's about time I upped the number of candlesticks which we have in the house.

Top of the list... Hobart by Robert Welch. Very keen on the 2010 colours exclusive to Heal's.

Robin Day for John Lewis

Have you seen the recently released collection of Robin Day chairs for John Lewis? Such a shame that I don't have any room at all for any more chairs... I'd be there like a shot to pick up a white one or two...

A Gift

When I arrived home tonight I was greeted by a wonderful gift, which was very kindly sent to me by Lisa.

I am now the very happy owner of this beautiful toadstool print fabric, which I can only guess is based on my favourite Jessie Tait design for Midwinter pottery.


A relatively restful weekend, mostly spent lunching and chatting. It was lovely to see the snowdrops at Columbia Road.

I've been elsewhere, in mind and body. Am back from a very long and hard week working away but my mind... it still hasn't really returned yet.
