Is it Monday already?

Goodness, I'm out of practice.
It wasn't a busy weekend
but I don't have a post ready.

Let's see if I can think of an excuse...

I planted my window boxes
pale blue violas, very subtle...
I think you would be impressed.

I cast on a hot water bottle cover,
also pale blue, must be my subconscious...
many thanks to Tracy and Nancy
for measuring their hotties for me.

I thought about making some chutney.

So you see it's been hectic.

Oh, alright, don't look at me like that...
I've been shockingly idle.
I shall have to up my game.

WAIT ...I've just remembered...
you can have a fruit tart from Sketch
but you have to be suitably groovy.
Purple lipstick would work.
I went with my sister Demelza
who was wearing gold plaforms
and MissM and my fab niece.
We drank cocktails and ate pastries.
Yup. Sometimes my life is like that.


  1. Sketch. Noted.
    Sound sto me like you WERE busy.

    1. No. I really, really wasn't busy - trust me.

  2. Pastries, coacktails and gold platforms (I like your sister's style) - sounds as though you were very busy!

    1. Yes - my sister was in dress down mode.

  3. I am not groovy, but I am quite capable of stealing your fruit tart and running off in my Converses faster than you can catch me in your high heeled shoes :-)

    We had a busy weekend too - at least that's what I shall claim when I phone my parents later on ...

    1. That would be a major misjudgement - my sister competes in triathlons.

    2. *puts tart back and backs away*

  4. Sketch looks waaay out of my comfort zone. But there wouldn't have been time to squeeze it in between the 4 rugby games and an open day anyway. So I can console myself with that.

    1. Been there, done that.

      I have a sneaking suspicion that you would enjoy Sketch - it is very rococo.

    Sounds like a joyful way for life to be sometimes! Good for you!!!!

    1. It was so much fun. Absolutely delicious patisserie.

  6. You must deserve to not be busy sometimes, surely? That tart looks lovely.


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
