This week I've been catching up on all the blog posts I missed last week. I love keeping up with beautiful blogs with lovely words and stunning pictures... it's like having a never ending magazine!
Some current favourites from this week...
Fable and Folk
Life at the Little Wood
The Ordinary Lovely
Last week, my flower girl from Austria came to stay for the week (she's not little anymore - 12!) and we watched Maleficent together... I hadn't seen it before, but it was fabulous! Such an interesting take on "the other side of the story" and put the classic old fairytale of Sleeping Beauty in a new light. If you haven't seen it, do! It's a really good watch!
I've been listening to some Kari Jobe songs on YouTube this week, and I just love the "Forever" track. Such powerful lyrics and a reminder of the basis of my faith...
This week the gloves have come out... November brings that transition from Autumn into Winter, doesn't it? But I just don't quite feel I'm quite ready to wave goodbye to autumn yet! Oh dear... I am SO nowhere near ready for Christmas!!!
Have you all got your poppies ready for next week?
This week I was in a reminiscent mood and thought I'd get back to my Northern Irish roots... so on Monday morning, Heidi and I whipped up a storm of Wheaten Bread and my Nanny's famous buns. She may not be here to make them any more, but I'm sure going to make sure our kids know the taste of those buns straight out of the oven. Nothing. Beats. Them.
We are adjusting to not having our Ava around during the day again. We all enjoyed some time together last week. She's a little poppet and I miss her smiley face. Especially when she comes home tired from school and the smiles are not so ready as normal! Week days are tiring when you're only just four, but she's a trooper and is bearing it up brilliantly... most of the time!
Also, next week, I've decided to resurrect my linky #SavouringtheSeason after taking a year off. With the Christmas season approaching, it seemed the perfect time to do it... so link up next Thursday if you'd like to - any posts which celebrate the season that we're in... I'll have a badge ready by next week!
#SavouringtheSeason is all about celebrating the season we find ourselves in... whether it be recipes, crafts, outdoor adventures or reflections on life, come join us on Thursday mornings!
See you there!
And that's us.... over and out!
See you next week!
