Much of a muchness

Things that make you go 'hmm'…

An ordinary day


This one makes me think of the 70’s somehow, a bit ‘Yellow Submarine’. I don’t know if you can see from the photo but it’s actually brown and white not black and white, which is very nice.

Random things that happened today

  • I was commissioned to make two books, that makes four in all
  • Number One son bought a car – no more early mornings for me – hurrah!
  • Ate first mince pie of the year
  • Bought far too much food. The cold weather gives me the munchies.
  • Bought new gloves – it is really, really cold today
  • 13 people searched for ‘strawberry’ on Google and ended up at my blog. That makes 57 since I started noticing.
  • Received first cheque for the sale of my books. I sell books. It’s official :)
  • Watched ‘The Painted Veil’ – depressing
  • Began the Great Boot Hunt (for flat, tan riding boot style boots) – no joy yet – to be continued

So there we have it. Not a particularly eventful day but a pleasing one. No plans for the weekend. Number One son has gone off for a couple of days (have car, will travel) so I am going to make lots of books. And probably eat all the food….

    I like it. The front looks almost victorian to me. Yay for two more comissions and being paid to do what you enjoy anyway.

    I know! How exciting! The trouble is though I was very sad to see the ones I sold go to their new owners …. still, I have their photographs and can look at them occasionally.. :)

    Hi Clara!

    It’s funny how ordinary days end up being very good days!

    You haven’t put any new books on your blog for a while – are you busy? I love the paper inside your last one – so rich and beautiful.

    LOVE it. And so thrilled that you have started to sell these beautiful items. I’m not surprised that they are a success. Also, like your random thoughts…will make a note to miss A Painted Veil as looked intriguing but no need to be depressed unduly. Thanks for stopping by my site so often. Nice to have you visiting.

    Hi there, Ladybug! Thank you! I always enjoy my visits to your site – you took a break so I am pleased you are back at it and will check it out as soon as I finish writing this :)
