The Little Things

Read | I've just finished 'The Quality of Silence' by Rosamund Lupton, chosen by the book group and which I thoroughly enjoyed.  I've started on 'The Versions of Us' by Laura Barnett.
Watched | I went with Julie to see Skerryvore on Wednesday night.  We'd never heard of them before and didn't know any of their music - we just liked their name and the description of them in the local music centre's 'what's on' booklet, so bought tickets to see them.  It was money well spent ... a brilliant evening!
Heard | Mostly Heart radio.  I've had it on in the background this week but haven't really been listening to it properly.
Made | I've made progress on my home improvement plans.  I've sorted the kitchen and that's on order, but am still waiting to agree an installation date. The electrical work will be completed mid March, and I've also arranged for quotes to replace the decking with a patio.   Once I know that cost I can order the new living room furniture; I've seen the sofa and chair I'd like but it all comes down to cost, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there will be enough money left in the pot.
Worn | All the odd bits of clothing that don't usually see the light of day and which could probably go to the charity shop.  I haven't caught up with the laundry yet! 
And Lastly ... Today, it's been three years since I lost Ced.  I'll be teaching this afternoon and I have a couple of other things arranged so I won't be moping about at home on my own - it'll be a day for remembering the good times and looking back with happiness.

Thanks to Morgana for organising the Little Things, and to Amy for organising Five on Friday.


  1. You have been busy & with such wonderful plans coming together for spring, a time of renewal. If it helps, know that I will be sending lots of cyber hugs to you today as you remember Ced, he will be with you sitting on that new deck!

  2. Sounds like lots of progress has been made on your home improvement plans. Hope you manage to get the lounge furniture you are hoping for. Take care.

  3. So sorry its been three years since you lost your beloved, Ced. Seasons of life, as sad as they are and can be, but here celebrating today of the 27th birthday of our son.

    Remodeling can always be a challenge but the finished product will be worth it :)


  4. I hope that all goes well with the home improvements and that you are really happy with the results. I am sure that Ced would be looking in with great pleasure that you are doing this these things. Hugs to you today! Thank you for sharing at Five On Friday, hope you have a great weekend. xx

  5. I'll be thinking about you today

  6. You have been busy, I need a new couch too and need to quit being so lazy and start looking for one.

  7. Home improvements can take a long time to sort - glad it's done for you.

  8. Wow, you have been busy with your home improvement plans! We still have lots to do to our house, I really must get on with the little jobs that can be done now xx
