Hello.......... Today's Five on a Friday post is going to be all about hunkering, outside it's wet and cold, so there is nothing else for it, it's time to hunker.
So here are my essentials for a good hunker........
number one: A comfy place with lots of cushions, blankets and fairy lights and of course some lovely crochet to be getting on with.
Number Two: Blankets are very important in the hunkering process all cosy and warm. This is a blanket I've been meaning to share on the blog for a while, It's a special one, a vintage make and family piece that probably dates back to the 1960's maybe earlier.
Number three: While hunkering you need something to look at, flowers are good, these seasonal anemones are perfect, don't you just love the one at the top of this post, it reminds me so much of raspberry ripple ice cream.
Number four: When hunkering you need something to do, craft magazines are the perfect distraction from the gloomy weather outside.
Number five :Tis the season for hearty food, a essential when hunkering, this was a chicken and butter bean casserole, so yummy on a cold day. Now do you notice anything missing in the above pic? While eating this for lunch yesterday I said to 'P' 'I'm yet to find a butter bean.' To which the reply was 'Me neither'. Yep my Foggy brain strikes again they were still sitting in the tin on the side. They did make it into the pot in the end, oops you see hunkering can be a tricky old business.
Joining in with Amy's Five in a Friday.
Now I have some very sad news, our lovely Dylan passed away over night Tuesday, he had been poorly for a while and it's a comfort to know his suffering is over now, but he will be much missed here at the Summerhouse. He made it to the grand age of 15 and a half and brought so much joy, love and laughter into our lives. So I am now without my yoga buddy, cuddle chum and crafting assistant, it's all a bit heart breaking really as we only lost our beautiful Merlin in the Spring.
Spending so much time in bed with my health, they were my constant companions, never too far away from the crafting action, my lovely little crafting assistants, both of them are so very much missed.
