No chance at all to take photos today, as I was busy with school work in the morning and therapy work in the afternoon through to 7.30 p.m.
This was taken on Snowy Monday, a week ago, at Standen House. I can’t wait to go back, take a seat in this conservatory and admire the view.
(I’m really behind on looking at and commenting on all you other lovely people’s blogs, so forgive me. I will catch up, I promise. )
We had our dear friends, L and M, round for a celebratory Chinese take-away (we’re about 6 weeks late celebrating L’s birthday in February, but the anticipation was worth it). I declared early on in the evening that I wanted to take part in Earth Hour 2008, scheduled for 8 til 9.
I got candles out and we started lighting them. L said she was able to continue knitting (yesterday’s image) in candlelight, although I was a bit concerned that the fluffy wool would somehow catch the flame, but I think she must be a seasoned candlight-knitter, because there was no inferno.
Jenny ran around at 8, turning the lights off. The timing was a bit tricky, as our meal was expected to arrive sometime after 8.30, and therefore Mr Angelfeet wanted to leave the porch light on for the driver. I pouted a bit about this, but decided that, hey, we were at least doing something. More significantly, it focused our minds and the children (well, Rosie at least) were aware of the significance of it.
We’ll do better tomorrow.
A bit out of focus. Which is how I feel today, with the weight of a migraine leaning on me.
It’ll be gone tomorrow. Hopefully.
I feel like I’ve known bsouth for much longer than I actually have, and I’m really glad of the circumstances that brought us together.
Today we met over cup of tea and a lemon slice. I got to cuddle both the girl and the boy, although the girl didn’t stay long on my lap, because she wanted to be nearer Mummy and the boy.
Dear Reader, I can assure you they are even more delightful in real life than they appear in blogland.
The boy was very accommodating with posing for pictures.
The Man is currently working on my laptop, trying to get the new wireless thingey to function, so I can’t get to my current pictures folder.
So here is my dear husband, this time last year, not working, but playing in only the way her Daddy can.
