Thursday

so long now. sorry

i visited the cottage and mother made me tea, my favourite. i miss it so. her dinners and her. i also miss my nephews and the garden and the loveliness. i also met her new chickens; camilla, duchess, jemima, henrietta, mrs pepperpot...and i forgot the other one's name. henrietta pecked at my toes, apparently they like pretty nail varnish. i love them. best things about mother's garden at wychwood cottage... her lovely flowers, her new chickens, trixie-lu the kitty and boris the bunny. i miss them all. very much.i really really want to live here....it was the boy's birthday a couple of weeks ago... we went to the place where the teeny toothless fish nibble at your feet. was far too strange. then we had lots of fun and i made him the purple iced rainbow cake he requested! i am rather proud.we were invited to a wedding at the weekend.. and it was beautiful. the grounds were wonderful. it got me thinking about weddings and what my wedding might be like. it was strange... i am far too young. but maybe i am actually not that young anymore.

  6. I really love the pictures, the kitten and the landscapes are so awesome. I understand quite well your feeling and I think the more we are away, the more we miss it and we can appreciate our home much more. Once you go back there, everything seems wonderful and you treat things there as so.

  8. So much loveliness in one post. Your mothers cottage sounds so beautiful, I quite like the idea of having chickens. And her cat is adorable too.

    The birthday cake you made is amazing well done! And oh, an outdoor wedding, I'd love to have one of those when I get married
