a Japanese proverb

Thought to savour: “One kind word can warm three winter months” (Japanese proverb, borrowed from the random acts of kindness site).

Ten Plus Textiles: are off on a group visit to Little Moreton Hall, where we’ll be having a week’s sessions of demonstrations, chatting to the public and selling work in September 2008. I was hoping to get there too, but I think I’ve caught Rosie’s cold. So I’m staying home and pottering doing jobs and getting lots of fruit and hot drinks down me. I hope they have a great time and a good lunch in the cafe!

Eyes: Watched half of a Margaret Rutherford film last night. Ooh I do love her acting as Miss Marple, she brings a real energy and determination to the role. Indominatable. (Wish I was! Heh heh!)
 
Ears: ‘The Imagined Village’ CD is still getting lots of plays at home, kind of Ellie to send it to us. What a great fusion of styles each track so different. I crank up the volume in the kitchen when I’m alone and bounce around to some of the tracks… the cat thinks I’ve gone mad!


Wishful walking:
(cf wishful thinking…) means taking an imagined walk….
… today it would be to the little building in the deer park at Dunham:
Deer park building, Dunham, Cheshire, England
