I wish I had some craft news of my own to share, but I am busily finishing things off that don't qualify as craft, like curtains for instance. Very boring, but very satisfying to see my to-do pile shrinking at such a good pace. Next on my list is...unfortunately...more curtains.

The view from 37
January 5th has been and gone, which means that I am now 37. Good lord, 37. It sounds very grown up.
My very favourite thing is a nice long sleep in and then a cup of coffee and a piece of toast in bed. So that's what I got.
I also got a lovely new cookbook and a magazine subscription and lots of lovely flowers and cards. Simon made me a card with some knitted undies on the front. Now that's love.
In craft news, we've been busy with the flower press Sylvie got for her birthday. Real life Botanists still use these you know. Maybe that's why I took Botany in the first place? There's lots of crafty stuff as part of the job. Not to mention all the amazing botanical art.
I thought Sylvie might like to glue her pressed flowers onto some cards, but no, the 4-year-old craftsperson's tools of choice are sellotape and photocopy paper. Oh, and a hole punch. Still very beautiful, and a much better idea in the end because she gets to keep this, whereas cards are for giving away.
