...for today at least. The sun is shining here in Herefordshire, the birds are twittering, Humphrey rabbit has even been out in his run this morning (although he is back inside lying next to the heater now).
To kick off the new year - and only 18 days late! - I thought I'd weave one of my new years resolutions into the post - which is to take time to read the blogs I enjoy. So, here are a few of the blogs that I hope to find time to read, and that I think you might enjoy too...
Catalogue Living is a tongue in cheek look at the kind of photography we see in glossy interiors magazines. You know the kind of thing - delicate glass vases balanced on open tread stairs or dainty twig displays just inches away from a roaring log fire. It's really funny, have a look.
Our New Life in the Country is Sue's personal diary as she develops a small holding in Oxfordshire. It's refreshing, honest and really very interesting. Sometimes I read her posts, complete with photos of lovely little chicks, and wish I had her life. Other times she writes about the mud and the cold - and I think again.
And finally, for today anyway, there is Sarah-Jane Down the Lane. Think countryside, garden flora & fauna, and beautiful classic children's books. Her blog is just lovely, the sort of thing I would like to create, in a slightly different life.
One of my other resolutions, by the way, is to finish the recommended toys by age guide I started back in December so expect to see a few more of those popping up shortly.
