It's Friday (yay!) but I have a horrible cold (boo!) so Paul and Iris have gone off to spend the morning playing in an orchard with her friends.
Ordinarily, this gift of a slice of time would be put to use in some (hopefully productive) way, but I just can't quite seem to get a handle on anything this morning and am contemplating a return to bed.
But before I do, here's a few pictures of my surroundings..
Paul is a writer, a copywriter to be exact. He's working on something for The National Trust right now and took all these Ladybird books to a meeting yesterday. I have such strong memories of these books from my own childhood. They're a wonderful resource, perfect for brushing up on Nature facts.
My latest floral obsessions, heady lilacs and delicious lily-of-the-valley (thank you sweetest Naomi).
A bit of rearranging of treasures on the mantelpiece.
