Catching up with friends...

I had a great day yesterday with my blogging friend Karen - Missy K. We talked and talked and put each other at ease when we found out we are both going through the same things at this stage in our lives - we're both nearly 50 - note I said NEARLY!!!!

It really helps to talk things through with friends who understand exactly how you're feeling and why. Makes us feel normal! We had a good mooch round the shops in Stockbridge, Hampshire - a very pretty little village - and I found some fabulous wallpaper.

Readers of my blog will know I love hares - and look at this fab paper I found made by two designers based in Wiltshire - affording it may be another matter though - can you see what it is?

Boxing Hares!!! By a company called BarnebyGates. Love it! They had many other lovely papers - and one with robins on which I was also partial to.

Couldn't let my blog pass without putting on a picture of my Welsh Springer Spaniel Tegan which a friend too for me when they looked after her the other day -

Happy Imbolc to those of you who know what it is - Happy Groundhog day to those of you who call it that and Happy Candlemas day to those who call it that. A spring festival to help us emerge from the depths of winter. Throw those windows open - brrr here in the UK this morning - and let the fresh air in. Get out that broom (!) and sweep away the cobwebs. The original Spring Clean day!

You'll find lots more about Imbolc and some recipes over on my other blog

I'm going to attempt to do some scrapbooking today - wish me luck. I have a printer which won't print and in this digital age I need to get some photos off my computer! grrrr!!!
