2016: the year of spaciousness

Because there's more to life than work

Bringing the outside in

Too cold and blustery today to be outside much, so picked some flowers to enjoy them before the wet weather hit. A small vase of lily of the valley, forget me nots and spring beauty (the pink ones) scented my office beautifully.

And these camellia flowers were just too lovely to not admire at closer quarters.

IMG_1296The vase (which you can just see) is one of my favourites, it was my late mother-in-law’s from Lancaster Pottery and has the most beautiful lustre to it.

We’ve been deprived of my other half’s speciality – bespoke flapjacks – since he broke his arm a few weeks ago, so he coached me today on the production of some banana and raspberry ones. Not quite up to the maestro’s standard, but still very nice with a wind down coffee at the end of the day.
