Meet Columbo…

This is Columbo. He caught our eye at the auctions a few weeks ago, I raised my hand a couple of times and we got to take him home!

He has clearly been well loved over his lifetime before being abandoned in a cold, damp auction house – hopefully we will be able to put a smile put back on his face soon…

Quilt and a Visit.

I've made a quilt! Took a little while but finished it just in time for a visit from Tom and Jen. They have been sleeping on our floor in our freezing cold flat for two nights although John turned the heating on in their honor and to much applause from me.

"What a wonderfully warm and fashionable quilt" - Jen Head.

We contacted Tom for a comment but he refused.

Freezing cold castles.

This past weekend we bravely headed out with a thermos of soup to Bothwell Castle. I say bravely as this was the first absolutely freezing day we have had in a while – giving us a taste of things to look forward to. I really don't mind the cold though when there are places like this not far from our house.  

Note to self find john some wellies.

I picked up this 80's book from a charity shop a little while ago.

We were flicking through it the other day, and considering its aimed at children, some of the content is pretty amusing…

This illustraion of a 'traditional Aboriginal dwelling' made us laugh.

Just what every child should know! You wont find many kids books that end like that nowadays.
