The jubilee birds have arrived! 

Even though it has rained al day, they were determined to try out the bird feeder - they have emptied the lot!!

Had a bit of a splurge on the big .com comapany this week- a great japanese cookery book to try and recreate the flavours I experienced on holiday. In addition I found a wonderful patchwork book by one of my favourite fabric designers-Susuko Koseki. The other sewing book is the Tilda collection of lovely things to make for the home, and the last one, the lonely planet guide to where to go this year- since I have been home from Japan I am really keen to find my next trip and have something to look forward to! 

With nothing else to do on a wet and windy weekend, I am tackling the paperwork- but in need of a break  I took my friend Susie to the local Needlework Fiesta- lots of goodies and ideas, but restricted myself to 3 fat quarters and some lovely buttons.  

Now its back to the paperwork - I am determined to throw away out of date bills and documents that have piled up forthe last few years! It is the sort of job that can only be done on a wet day - at least it will give me a clear conscience for the bank holiday which is coming up. 

Happy weekend bloggers......xx


  1. That's the only good thing you can say about this weather .... it forces you to get on with all those boring jobs you would not do if it were fit to go outside! We have cleared out our garage today - oh joy! xCathy

    1. I wish you would come and clear my garage!! Hxx
