Five on Friday


I'm delighted to be joining in with Amy's Five on Friday

I'm keeping this simple. Five photos and a few words.

The sun broke through the early thick fog to reveal a beautiful day. It was just too lovely 
to stay indoors so husband and I ventured out for a walk, heading for the wood at the 
back of our house. 

After trudging along the very mud path which mostly follows the perimeter of the wood we 
headed out towards the university playing fields. The groundsmen were out aerating the 
football pitches. The pitches are always immaculate.

After coffee in the cafe at the business park, we headed home, taking yet another
 photo of these gorgeous daffodils....

 past the water....

and back into the wood, almost home. 

Hope you enjoyed that walk. 

Thank you Amy at love made my home for hosting Five on Friday. 
Please head over to Amy's blog and see more Five on Friday's.  

Best wishes

Yarn along!


Joining in with Ginny's yarn along this week. 

So I'm reading 'The Nazis: A Warning From History'. I wonder how many of you remember 
this as a BBC TV series back in the late 1990s. I have read this before but as part of my 
mission to de-clutter I decided this was one book I would read once again and then pass
on. I am making slow progress though as I get distracted by facts and find myself
continually stopping to look up lots of extra details on Wikipedia. Still, it is quite nice
to be distracted in such a way. 

In the introduction there is a quote from Karl Jaspers, a German-born philosopher
"That which has happened is a warning. To forget it is guilt. It must be continually 
remembered. It was possible for this to happen, and it remains possible for it to happen 
again at any minute. Only in knowledge can it be prevented."

I'd like to think that was true but sadly I am not wholly convinced. 

As for these socks, oh boy they are taking me an age to knit. I've been suffering with that 
awful cold/cough bug that is going round and I haven't even had the energy to knit. 
Instead I have sat and read.... not a bad substitute.

Happy reading/knitting!
