52 Weeks of Happy...5/52


Hello there! Thank you so, SO much for your comments on my poppies post. I loved hearing your stories. So many of our families are touched by war and we all have our stories and heroes. And hello to my two new followers, you are very welcome!

Well, it's Tuesday, so joining in with Jen at little birdie here are the little things making me happy lately:
  • Angus the gardener helped my Dad in the garden - don't you just love his pink wheelbarrow? He spent hours testing my Dad's patience to the absolute limit by asking "What doing? What doing? What doing now?" every thirty seconds.
  • Pretty retro fabric.
  • Holly berries on the tree...CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!!
  • Happy children, wellie boots, fresh air, fallen leaves...I love autumn.
We had a really lovely weekend. My parents came to stay and we did a lot of cooking and eating and, judging by the weight of the recycling bin, drank rather a lot of wine too. I managed to get some last minute crafting done ready for my first craft fair on Thursday night. I'll pop back tomorrow with a make from Mollie Makes and some of the other bits and bobs I've been up to.
