New Tam O ‘Shanter

Dear Readers,

A few years ago I designed some Tam O ‘Shanters in memory of my Grandmother who passed away in 2019. One of them I called Margareet in Stripes and I wear it a lot. I love the way it fits and for a lot of occasions I love the cheery colourfulness.

Reposting this beautiful tribute to my late Granny on her birthday. We prefer to celebrate her birthday rather than the day of her passing.

Happy Birthday Mom, 20 10 2022 Dear Mom, I miss you since you died, 3 years ago – I missed you even before you died, for several years when you went deaf and we could no longer have our conversations. Your being deaf was a barrier to our wonderful conversations about life. I miss our […]


We are moving house!

Exciting news! Sorry that I have been so AWOL but the stress of buying and selling house kind of got the better of me. But it is all official now, we are moving on Friday. I have already packed up the house and we are all prepared so I am just deep cleaning the house as we wait for moving day.

Peace and Love

AWOL notice

Sooooo. I did it again. I hurt my hand. πŸ™ˆ This time I strained my thumb by spending an hour shredding confidential documents by hand because we don’t have a shredder and husband can’t go into office to use the work one.

Hopefully it will heal quickly with rest since shredding paper is not something I do a lot of.

I hope that you are all keeping well. Love from Jack and I
