A quiet week, with a little pink cake added...

This week has been a quiet one, due to being a bit under the weather. We haven't been to our home ed group for about a month!! Different diversions seem to keep cropping up each week, but we miss it and are determined to go back asap! We also started a really nice new home ed group in Glastonbury called Glow Education a couple of weeks back with some friends - so far that is the only session we've managed to get to!!

On Sunday we craved yet more sea, and so our friend David took us to Dunster. It was freezing! Acey cried and didn't want to make sandcastles. He sat on my lap and moaned, which is so unlike him even when it's cold! Something not right there...

The next day poor Acey was sick. It was because he hadn't eaten much the day before, but that was probably because he'd been feeling a little under the weather. I too have had a touch of tonsilitis so I should have known! We had a restful couple of days and were both fine.

A few weeks ago my friend Christina said ''can you make me a pink cake again this year and can we have a little party for my birthday?'' Well how could I refuse? Christina is one of my oldest and bestest friends. We lived opposite eachother when we were little, and have lots of fun memories. Whenever we don't see eachother for ages, we always get reunited somehow or another! And she had a bad week previously after crashing her car - so of course we could have a little birthday tea pink cake!!

The rest of the week has been a quiet one. Winter seemed be dragging this week and the SAD really kicked in!! I am (I was politely informed a while back) a typical pulsatilla patient,  and yes it is true, I really am - and well, since taking the remedy it has helped but sometimes I still need that little something to cheer me up and kick my butt out of that 'feeling sorry for self' I bought some little daffydillys at the greengrocer's...

Still, spring seems to be on it's way. The sun was shining today and we are going to a nice lake tomorrow if it's still nice! Snowdrops and daffodils and crocuses are slowly and finally blooming and tomorrow I'm ordering some new silks for our spring table....I think we might learn about magnets next week!

Love week.

God bless all those that I love
God bless all those that love me
God bless all those that love those that I love
and all those that love those that love me.

Wow this week has been valentines week - just for the record, I am against the commercialism of love, and so valentines day is irrelevant really anyway, but we thought we would spend the week celebrating love anyhow! And what a loved up week it has been (despite my getting dumped)!

On Monday Acey - AKA Fringe Boy's friend Magneto boy and little fairy godcousin came over to play! It was lots of fun.

Tuesday was valentines day. We decided to make some beautiful love lanterns and some loveheart pebbles for people we love...we went for a lovely walk on Sunday with our friend Christina and found some pebbles which we painted, and we also collected some from the beach and stuck some loveheart tissue paper on them.

In the evening we had a little valentines corner - we read some books about Love (these are our favourites) and played some tunes on the kinder Lyre, and had some love chocolates.

On wednesday, the adventures of Fringe Boy and Magneto boy continued at Charmouth beach (our favourite) in Dorset. We collected lots of pebbles!!

And on Friday we went to Charmouth beach AGAIN with our friend David. We had such a peaceful and beautiful day. Acey is in his element at sea. (so am I)! We had an interesting walk around the fossil shop after getting very wet and sandy..

We had a magical Saturday in Glastonbury for Reclaim Love at the Tor. By the time we got there, though, Reclaim Love had finished and it was very wet and windy, but we braved the Tor with new friends (and kept our eyes open for the somerset stranglers)...

And back to the cafe afterwards for wonderful lunch with wonderful friends!!!

What a loved up week it has been :)

I will finish this blog by sharing my lovely friend Annabelle's raw chocolate page! These are DIVINE and creamy, better than any other raw chocolate going
