I spent a few ‘chilling out’ days at my friend’s home.
Lovely relaxed evenings by a flickering fire.
Chatting and catching up.
chunk soupçon of chocolate.
bowl teeny tot of Baileys.
Perfumed candles flickering …
… and filling the air with their warm spicy scent.
(The White Company’s ‘Winter’ is the most amazing scent of cloves, cinnamon and orange)
Lots of countryside walks.
Through the ‘Magic’ wood ...
(Apparently, you have to get to the other side without the troll grabbing your ankles)
… with my friend M's little Pug Wilson and her son.
We spent a few hours in Cambridge.
A town seeped in history and atmosphere.
Warm stone and leaded windows.
Individual shops full of gorgeous little things
Cafes with big comfy chairs …
… and special coffees.
Where you can relax …
… and eat cake ... or a chocolate macaroon.
Watch the world go by.
Dilbert missed me.
I missed him more.
A big armful of black furry purry cuddliness.
Hubby didn’t get a look in.
