When its wet outside.....


what more excuse is needed to settle down for a little while with a hot drink and something naughty to eat......

and browse through a few new books......



as well as a few older favourites.......


and maybe indulge in a spot of hand sewing.......




 in the company of a good friend

Thank you everyone for taking the time to leave comments on my posts - it is lovely to read them all, and I do appreciate them so much. I try to reply to all of them via email (unless they are the "no-reply" ones) and also to visit your own wonderful blogs.

There are a few lovely Giveaways taking place at the moment in Blogland - have a look in my sidebar at the top of my blog to link to Madelief and Mimi and Tilly's blogs to join in their wonderful Giveaways.

  1. Logan is such a handsome boy. Archie is at the groomers at the moment, he hates it but he doesn't have too much taken off, just a trim to tidy him up a bit.

  2. I couldn't think of a nicer way to spend a rainy old day. The light in your photos is lovely and those books look wonderful. Enjoy!

  5. Sounds heavenly Gill.

    Thanks for your comment over on my blog. It's nice to hear how what I try to do now/what you did, pays off later.

    What a perfect day, cake, good reads and a friend!

  7. Oh, a perfect way to spend a rainy day! I'd love a browse through your personal library... looks like you have plenty of eye candy for inspiration. Having the friend with you is icing on the cake :)

  8. Sounds like an excellent way to spend a rainy day in.

    I love your tea plate. It's so pretty :)

  14. What a cozy way to spend a rainy day! I´d like to flip through your lovely books, too.

  15. Logan is such a handsome your man. It has been lovely seeing him grow.
    Such pretty pics Gill, the light in them is delightful :)

  16. Oh my, that looks like the nicest way ever to spend a day. Sweet puppy, pretty dishes, lovely treats, gorgeous books. Let it rain. :)

  17. You know how to do a rainy day right Gilly...looks absolutely perfect....you even brightened it up with all those pretty cups and what-not notions! But the best part would be having Logan to snuggle up with while enjoying all the what-nots, he's such a sweety!
    Hoping the sun finds you al soon...

  18. Hi Gill, it's a while since I've read your blog as for some reason, it hasn't come up on my blogroll - will remedy that immediately.
    I found you again on Annie's Knitsofacto because your comment was exactly what I was going to say, apart from still being shy! How strange! You have some beautiful images and I'm going to do some catch up reading. Nice to find you again. Axxx

  19. Wonderful post, what a way to spend a wet rainy day, pure bliss!

  20. The weather I gather, has not been the best over there. Rainy weather is good reading weather though. Enjoy your books and sewing projects. Please, do not feel obligated to respond via e-mail to my comments. I know how time consuming reading and writing back on peoples blogs is. Here's hoping the bout of bad weather turns around quickly for you.

  21. I would love a rainy day here. Not only do we need it but I love to hear the rain outside and cuddle up like you with tea and a treat and some books and/or some needlework and if chilly a fire in the fireplace. Pure heaven to me! Enjoy! I may need to move there! LOL!


Thanks for visiting and for taking the time to leave a comment - I love to read them!
