This is a little quiet corner of our house, the mantlepiece collections change on a regular basis, but this one might stay a little while, at least til Christmas. Mum loves her little white china houses, she has a couple of them and is always on the lookout for more. When they have candles in them, they look like a little village and make mum smile.
Mum went for a short walk, the day was not as nice as the weather man promised. There was a big disc of grey cold cloud over her part of the city. Groceries were bought. A big couscous salad will be made tonight, with some roast lamb. Strawberries and yoghurt will follow, and I will be content with a feast as usual.
We wanted to say Happy Birthday to big uncle. We hope you had a nice day, and we hear Miss Belle is baking you a fancy cake. She made a bright rainbow cake for mum with tasty buttercream icing - what a treat.
