Bill is practising night and day for the upcoming Circus Show!!
We are lucky enough to have a fantastic circus group in our little town where the kids learn all kinds of circus skills. Bill is particularly taken with plate spinning..
it's harder than it looks!
Meanwhile, still in the kitchen, Charlotte has been enjoying her beautiful, personalised apron made by the fabulous Curly Pops!! Here she is looking adorable.
Since the wonderful Daylesford Maker's Market I have been lying low..trying to catch up on things around the house (not much luck there), planning a bit for the short term future (slow progress) and generally TRYING TO KEEP WARM!!!! It has been literally FREEZING here and I'm blaming the cold for just about anything that is not working for me at the moment (brain inclluded).
As it's been so chilly I have taken to holing up in my (recently rat-free) room at night, reading, crocheting and playing on my laptop. Sunday's old teddy, Hole Ted, keeps me company. Let me tell you a little about her...
Teddy is really one of the family. When Sunday was a baby we gave her this orginal teddy, now known as Hole Ted, and also bought a spare, just in case. (This was a good plan as Teddy became a big part of Sunday's life, she has cuddled, snuggled, and loved both teddy's until their fur has just about worn off.) Having a spare also meant that once Ted #1 was near retirement age then new Teddy could step in. Which is exactly where she is right now...safe & warm in the arms of her beloved.
I have a bit of thing for favourite toys, especially old ones, they give so much good love.
Do you have a special someone in your life?
After a good, relaxing spot of cosiness, curled up on my grandmother's old and well loved chair it's been into bed early to keep warm and have a good old read of our latest bookclub book, (my namesake) Rebecca. It's such a great story, have you read it? When I was little my best friend's mum would always greet me with the first line in the book, "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again."
So that's where I'm at this week. In a bit of a spin, trying to keep warm and often snuggled up like a bug in a rug. Hope you are warm and comfy & getting some good love x

Yesterday's Maker's Market was a blast! Well actually the blasts (of cold air) were thankfully outside - inside the gorgeous Daylesford Town Hall it was warm & toasty and full of atmosphere. Lots of lovely locals & friendly tourists weaved their way through the stalls, stopping, chatting, looking & buying wonderful, handmade treasures.
sorry you are a bit blurry Kate!
Geoffery Williams, a very talented local singer songwriter played and sang too which added a certain touch of magic to the day.
