Summer fruit, packing and guest room.

a. Lucy over at Box Elder recently wrote a rather lovely description of 3BT, and she's been recording her own, illustrating them with her beautiful photographs.

b. I'll be at Oxfam in Chapel Place, Tunbridge Wells, on Saturday from noon to 3pm helping them to celebrate their bookfest -- do come and say hi if you're in the area.

1. Someone has dropped a box of jewels in among our vegetables... My mistake: it's strawberries (which, on reflection, is even better).

2. I feel anxious about the move, which is next week. I fill a couple more boxes and immediately feel better. The empty shelves are reassuring. I hope we can achieve the same feeling of light and air in the new house. We'll have to be thoughtful about acquiring new possessions.

3. We invite a friend to stay -- because this time next week, we will have a guest bedroom


  1. Good luck with the move - sure it will go swimmingly :D

  2. Thanks for the link! People have been nice about it, but I don't think I could really accept any compliments until I've been doing it as well as you have for as long.

    Enjoy the move, good luck.

  3. Make sure you get a takeaway on move day and have a bottle of something special handy, all adds to the fun memories. :-)

  4. Also, don't pack the kettle away anywhere you can't find it instantly... not only will you want a cuppa when you get there, the removal men will very pleased if you make them a brew when you arrive at your new home ;-)
