Thank you again for all your support on my last couple of posts. I'm lucky to have you cheering me on!
The first week of my new course has been great. I've learned some newsroom writing protocol, and reckon I might be ready to write a real story in reporter-style, pretty soon. It's great to learn such new skills, but I must admit that the full-time student life is something that might take a while to get used to, after working from home and looking after children. For example, I've not yet been interrupted from my work or had anyone pulling on my clothes, nor have I done any washing at all in five days. It's just different, I suppose, and I'm sure I'll get used it soon enough.
I've posted three photos of some good things from the week. I finished a few new needlebooks for my shop, they are made from natural linen and feature botanical embroideries on the front.
A very kind friend sent me a set of milky-blue vintage cups and saucers. They have such a Scandinavian aura around them, I think, but they were actually made in Ireland. I'm looking forward to putting them to use this weekend.
And the last photo above shows some pieces of coconut rough. This was a childhood favourite of mine (both to make and eat) and I was reminded it of it recently by a friend, then came across this recipe, which is very sweet but pretty close to how I remember it from those days. I made this for the kids (and who am I kidding, myself too) to celebrate the end of this different kind of week.
Have a great weekend!
