Housework done, children off to school and the rain outside falling in sheets I sat myself with an un-interrupted cup of tea and had a properly nice morning felting! I made some more balls to make lovely necklaces and a pair of slippers. billy thought the slippers were so wonderful when he came home from school at lunchtime with a sore throat and headache that he made some as well i have to share the photos with you because his top mine by a mile in the wonderful scale! (he’s sleeping with them tonight so they will dry faster)

Things that make me happy.

I drove back from a trip to cornwall today and there was a programme on Radio 4 about what makes us happy and measuring the happiness of our country. Mostly the discussion was centred around money and whether having more of it makes us happier? http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/news/shoptalk/shoptalk_20030422.shtml

I thought it would be nice to write down all of the things that make me happy each day… Maybe you could as well and we can read each others happiness, that might be a new one on the list.

1. homely things- I stayed at my mums last night and I like the familiarity.

2. I went for a walk along the cliff path at Gorran Haven http://www.gorranhaven.org.uk/ the air was amazing I felt completely cleansed!

3. Seeing my children when I got home and my lovely friend Leigh.

4. My mug, it’s a small thing but I love my favourite mug, it makes me smile everytime I use it.  http://www.nigellambertpotter.co.uk/nigel_lambert_potter/nigellambert_potter.html

5.And tonight I get to do some needle felting, oh happy me!

Going Home!

Well I think it’s official, we are moving back to Cornwall! I am SO excited, properly back to the sea! I have found a house in a village only a few minutes walk from the beach, good school for the children so that they won’t miss it here too much. As for this house that we are leaving there is lots to do, we have a lot of stuff to pack & have really spread ourselves to everycorner of our house & smallholding, I’m not really sure where to start??? I have sold off all of our amimals now, there is a picture of my little lambs in their new home. It’s a great feeling though, however, time feels like it’s going to go so very slowly.
