Just finished using a new circular cake tin to make Austrian coffee cake its delicious and perfect for a cold afternoon. While looking in the shop’s clearance section I also spotted this cute little tea shop tin and some skinny choc caramel syrup for my coffee..its lovely. This morning I had to buy this lovely mug with a mama deer motif on it as I love reindeers. Finished crocheting a little owl which was originally a knitting pattern in landscape magazine but I was getting confused with knitting dropping stitches so decided to do a crochet version. I have finished my advent or treat a month box so just to put chocolates in it now and hide it from my sons. Last Sunday I went up to Inglenook farm in Rainford and bought this gnome house from a carpenter..I love it as smoke comes out the little chimney from an incense cone put in the door. Have a lovely week and dont forget to treat yourselves now and again as we deserve it
Just had a walk in the rain to Kirkby lonsdale beautiful little market town on the borders of Cumbria. Treated myself to artisan chocolate, a pink sheep scarf and dry jeans! Walking past devils gate bridge was wonderful with all the rain and stopped off for a rest for a lovely cuppa and teacake.

Last night it was very windy so perfect to rest my feet on this finished hexagonal hygge rug..we are quite lucky here in Liverpool as we dont really get the brunt of the bad weather as Ireland gets any bad weather coming across the Atlantic first…feeling thankful.
