Michelle Green's clever needlefelted birds are always popular in Handmade Happiness.
Her robins, wrens and bluetits are regular visitors and this week she has brought in long-tailed tits, owls and dogs. There is another dog but sorry, my picture was too blurred to share. I'll take another picture of him today.

My anti-ageing mission has back-fired lately what with pulled hamstring/ trapped nerve in leg from emergency yoga and the boiler has broken down so no heating and hot water. I'm told a new boiler will cost between £1800 and £1900 so no chance of that. I always wonder how other people cope in these situations. Perhaps they are prudent and have savings for life's emergencies. I've never been able to do that. I glide through life on a wing and a prayer and trust that nothing bad will happen. How dumb is that?

Right now the sun is shining in a perfect blue sky. How lucky I am. It's going to be a good day!

I think there are two types of people - those that are quite pessimistic and see the negative side of life all the time and have savings for the inevitable rainy days; and those who are relentlessly positive, see good in everything, they notice flowers and birdsong and take joy in seeing the sun come out and they don't put loads of money by just in case the boiler packs up...I know which I would rather be and I am glad that you are the same Jenny! Maybe someone reading the blog is a handy person who can fix your boiler simply!
