Cherry Blossom

 A wee outing in the Yokohama Shinrinpark to enjoy the cherry blossom.
 Sherlock has to get on my lap too...Claire was quite tired out by the time we'd walked all round, but she sure enjoyed it.

Happy New Year!

Back to work tomorrow and end of terms to navigate. The dogs are well, and Claire is well, although age leaves her weak in her back legs, and not seeing things so well. Her wee accidents leave me busy washing the sheets and airing the beds as often as I can. We are fortunate to have her sweet presence, and love every minute of the time with her.
I was so lucky last year to win the pattern to these beautiful mitts (I still have one to knit!) from Goldberry Knits. They are named Entwife, and knitting them is a charm to call back the Entwives (from Lord of the Rings), such a magical and beautiful idea. Those lovely missing entwives always intrigued me too... Claire agrees sleepily...

Happy Xmas

Happy Xmas morning. Tea in a Nobu lookalike Dunoon mug. A treasure from Motomachi Takarada...
