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!
