Odds and ends – I

Sometimes life overtakes us.

So it has been for me in the last ten days.  The day job and the project on which I’ve been working, seems to be taking an eternity to come to an end, have taken me to Johannesburg and back.  I’ve been at my desk for ten or so hours a day.

I’m not getting to many of my favourite things, including Fiona’s Favourites and blogging.  Quite a few things are falling through the cracks.  Bear with me.

In the meantime, here is a selection of some  photographs that don’t fit into any particular theme, but which I rather like.


A black and white bee-eater on the back of a wrought iron chair in our garden.

One of my favourite decorations for the Christmas tree;  it’s handmade and I bought it, along with a few similar ones from a craft market about ten years ago.

If you were waiting for me to share the passata recipe, I’m sorry.  The passata’s done, and so am I.  Tomorrow’s another day, and next weekend is a holiday weekend.  Let’s see how things unfold:  watch this space!

    1. Thank you, Joan. I have a few others, much older. Over Christmas, as I was taking that photograph, and of other decorations, I began toying with a post along the lines of “Tales that Trinkets Tell”. I may do that as Christmas approaches or when things have calmed down a bit. Thank you for the good wishes and a Happy Easter to you, too.
