Miles to go before I sleep

The woods were lovely, dark and deep, 
But I had promises to keep, 
And miles to go before I sleep, 
And miles to go before I sleep.

 Stunningly beautiful screen printed Indian wrapping paper covered a birthday present from my mum. I folded it carefully and kept.

Half way through Seen in my Visions, my mum posted me the Peter Ackroyd biography so I could learn more about William Blake. He is so erudite on a fascinating individual and I've already had to look up so many words and references. I love books like this.

 An evening admiring cards

 Practice for a performance I never got to give.


 Tuesday in work with my new scarf.

A block palace when the prince is sleeping.


  1. Is that a poster of the Welsh alphabet? It looks beautiful - would love to have a closer look.

    And where did you find those wooden blocks... They are exactly what I've been looking for!

    1. Yes it is te Welsh alphabet, well spotted!! it's this print by the Welsh illustrator Cathryn Weatherhead, it's so lovely!

      The blocks are from a few different places - my mum kept a load of our old toys including a basket full of wooden blocks that she got from second hand shops plus a few new ones when my sister and I were small. Also my son got some lovely Brio blocks for his birthday which I just mixed into to my existing stash! They are such good quality and will last a lifetime:
