Making: my crochet bobble cowl
Cooking: fish chowder, some cream and dill at the end make it taste luxurious
Sipping: hot lemon, ginger & honey
Reading: I started another of Ann Cleeves Vera series, perfect winter reading – a country house at Christmas with a house party in full swing and … da-da-daaa! A body
Anticipating: my December gin box to be delivered at the beginning of next month
Breakfasting: porridge all the way!
Looking: at all the birds who suddenly appeared in the garden, when it became much colder
Listening: to The Green Planet TV series soundtrack on Spotify, it’s epic. I didn’t watch any of the series, but the soundtrack makes me want to!
Wishing: for some thermal gloves for when I walk
Enjoying: Sing 2. Purchased on Amazon, it’s a really good fun watch if you like music and silliness
Appreciating: all the colours in the trees, it hadn’t been that windy in November, so there were lots and lots of beautiful autumn leaves still
Eating: chicken and leeks in blue cheese sauce with potatoes and green beans (leftovers with tagliatelle were delicious)
Liking: 1899 on Netflix, it’s creepy and intriguing
Loving: wearing my handmade woollies again
Buying: a few presents, trying to get ahead of the game
Watching: I’m a Celebrity as usual, it was really entertaining back in Australia. Wales did not work for us
Hoping: for a lovely family Christmas, looking forward to it
Wearing: my Edenvale cowl and some purple gloves while I walked
Noticing: Christmas trees going up in homes before the end of the month. In NOVEMBER #TooEarly
Following: Made by Anita on Insta, see her page here. We’ve followed each other there for years. I recommend her account if you want to see lovely colour combos, plus loads and loads of crochet
Sorting: out some yarn oddments for the next yarn bombing project for my friend (orange for a nose!)
Getting: Stollen and a tin of Twiglets for my Christmas store, in recent years I’ve realised if you snooze, you lose!
Coveting: A really good flask so that I can make a hot cup of tea back at my car, after long walks
Feeling: a bit tingly excited about Christmas as the month drew to a close
Hearing: the heating whirring away, I’m not taking it for granted
It was a nice month, some exciting things happened; I met new people, went to new places, generally all felt pretty good. As I write this it’s the second of December now, I hope it’s as special a month.
How are you doing? I hope all is well in your world and you’re managing to stay warm. Or, cool and dry if you’re Down Under!
Tell us three things about your November?
Great post and lovely pictures as usual!
I’m inspired by your porridge – I’ll have the cold variant tomorrow morning.
It’s snowy here so we had to say goodbye to those golden leaves. Very chilly weather.
I had a lovely morning “off” yesterday: after an appointment with a doctor, I had a yummy cake and a cappuccino at a tiny café. After that, I took a stroll, peeped into several shops and bought little presents for my girl-friends. I spent a quiet while at a church and finally bought a super-expensive moisturising gel cream for which I got a 40% reduction :) (otherwise I wouldn’t dream of it).
Today I’m down with a cold and a sore throat but the memory of yesterday makes it a lot better!
Sounds like a really good day, thanks for sharing. I hope you feel better soon!
18 th November, we were there, at the market in the house, you could have met the tribe! Love your bobbly yarn, really pretty. I made chicken and leek hotpot last week, so tasty. Lovely month you had here.
Oh how funny!
Isn’t it? I’m loving seeing the stripes appear.
Your hotpot sounds very tasty, I’m a big fan of leeks.
Hope yours was a good Niven too!
