….a little bit more…

“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”

Come away

“The host is rushing ‘twixt day and night,
And where is there hope or deed as fair?
Caoilte tossing his burning hair,
And Niamh calling Away, come away.”

– W. B. Yeats

Autumn

“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.”

New Elfdom

There are many different adventures in life. Some of them are exciting, some are inspirational, some we embark upon because something is missing from our lives, some because there is too much of something in our lives.

Our newest adventures has been moving home.  Having been in our Clapham flat for 4 years (possibly one of my longest addresses) we have decided to move on.  Not far, but on to a new area of London (I know! Weird right!) and a new house.  We’ve a garden and everything now!  It has been a big change and a bigger move than we had anticipated.

For one thing, our box labeling game, it turns out was very poor. “Kitchen” is not sufficient.  Also our packing skills…whilst very good in terms of space saving was fabulous it was creative in the combinations of items we deemed sensible to pack together at the time.

In any case, we are in.  We’ve not enough storage outside the now huge number of cardboard boxes that we are surreptitiously trying to sneak out with the recycling.

We’re off on an adventure

that flighty temptress,

adventure.”
