Receiving this bundle of tea-time goodies in the post on Friday morning got the weekend off to a very good start! I was lucky enough to win Liz's giveaway to celebrate her blog's fifth birthday. When I first came across the concept of blogging I thought that it seemed a bit egotistical like writing a personal diary with publication in mind. But I've come to see it in quite a different light. My own tentative steps into the blogging world were also about five years ago and although I'm by no means prolific and haven't got a vast throng of readers, I've discovered a lovely world of shared interests, supportive online communities, plenty of fun and masses of information and inspiration. Thanks, Liz!
Sadly the light wasn't good enough to make a decent photograph. No snow here to intensify the light; just wall-to-wall grey. That didn't stop us from having an excellent weekend with visiting friends - food, natter, mooching around galleries and shops, reminiscing, laughing, a brisk cold walk round the harbourside, more food; the best kind of weekend.
a chilly week . . . and a happy birthday
