Lovely post. I can so imagine little cottage with treasures inside.


I agree with everyone else- this post made me feel all warm inside too.


What a lovely post, it made me feel all warm inside. My Mum lives in Cornwall which is a 300 mile trip from her, like you we don't see her as often as we'd like. Although we usually make the motorway journey, I have travelled down by train on a few occasions when the children were younger,it was part of the holiday for us and made it seem so exciting!Now they're teenagers,those days are over but I have such fond memories of special holidays spent at Nannie's home.


OO! More pics of your mums scrummy cottage please! I dream of living in a cottage like that, preferably in the cotswolds, with a lovely cottage garden full of flowers and a veg plot, where hubby and I can grow old. I think its because as a child we spent our hols visiting an aunt in Bristol and went out for day trips to Bath and Chedder etc. and even Chesil Beach! And as for your mums crochet blanket, we always had one that was called the 'sick blanket' as children, because thats what we snuggled under on the sofa when we ill. So as soon as I left home and got married, I asked my dad to crochet me one, and now my children do the same!


Thank you again for a lovely blog. Kathy


You are very lucky to get these things from your mum and now you are passing them on to your little one.... just as life should be.


Hi Lucy (Lucie!!!), thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog and your memories of MLA. It is very much appreciated. I have put you down on my sidebar to visit again later. x


Hi there..thanks for visiting my blog!
I travel by train a lot and love it! It beats the stress of the roads.
Dorset is such a lovely county to visit!
I am now about to read more of your lovely blog.Sal;-)


Your blog makes me feel warm and homely. I remember the excitement of going to my nans when I was little. She used to ask me if I wanted cordial (that was her word for fizzy drinks) and she always put extra sugar in the bottom so that the drink fizzed more! Your blog brings back fond memories for me. Your mum sounds like a lovely person.
