A Mitfordian list of Love and Hate

A while ago I made an Instagram post despairing of what to write in our blogs. Nancy Larman who wrote the words for our last book 'Living Life Beautifully' suggested this:

Late to this party but I would like to see a completely random list of things you love and also a random list of things you hate.  Have always thought you’re the most Mitfordian person I know in real life. Please do it 😂❤️

So Here is a small List of things I love:

Cow Parsley and old boats

Rusty tin roofs

Pink Plates on Catherine Rose Wallpaper

Laying the table properly even though it is only for two

My vegetable plot I always think that a flat one would be nice, though
weeding up hill is probably a good thing.

Spring days when the sky is blue

Too many sweet peas

Children intent on serious pursuits 



Laundry drying outside on a washing line

Working from Home and making books

Simon Brown photographing 'Living Life Beautifully' beautifully.

Well behaved puppies and old dogs



Growing flowers and vegetables from seed

Transformations from this

To this

A tidy office with real curtains these are Mary in blue by C&R

Shopping in real shops

A box of colour - doesn't matter what sort as long as it doesn't need sharpening 

Real letters written with real ink

An empty beach

Landrovers that are as old as I am and still work




I could go on and on and perhaps one day I will, there is so much to love.    

There are two things I hate though, the wasteful manufacture of too many cheap clothes, but
this would mitigate it somewhat.......

and a pesky little virus called Corona.

Until next time
