. 'When someone says it's too soon for Christmas movies and you realise you don't need that kind of negativity in your life....' . . Spent the morning traipsing the local forest for pine cones and shrubbery (see stories), thinking I might transform the McCottage into something cosy and coorie. . #tistheseason . But I've parked that idea. However you dress it up, twigs and cones in a vase just end up looking like twigs and cones in a vase. . . Maybe I'll have better luck with my wreath making.... ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ™„ (Do you have any idea how many DIY Garland Wreath Swag demos you can watch on YouTube...?!) . . Instead, I tuned in to The Holiday and sighed over CD's hair and wardrobe... . . Surely it must be time for a new Christmas fillum...! Actually Love Alone Home It's a Wonderful Elf Lampoon Nightmare...๐Ÿ˜’ . . Suggestions please! I'll write it! . . . . . . . . This is not The Holiday cottage but the gorgeous home of uber talented @osborninteriors ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿ ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ“ธ

. . 'I love everything that's old: Old friends, Old times, Old manners, Old books, Old wines.' (Oliver Goldsmith, She Stoops To Conquer, b 10th November, 1730) . . Old has a tale to tell, call me old fashioned but I rather like that... . . Anyhoo, it's a new day, and I'm travelling back to Scotland soonish, where I will take time this evening to respond to each and everyone of my quite fabulous Iger chums, new and old, who left very touching messages on my last post, which obviously struck a chord... . . As Olly G said, (also in She Stoops), 'I'll be with you in the squeezing of a lemon'! . . A bientรดt Insta Warriors - hope you have a fine old time this weekend... not always sunny, but in a sunny state of mind xxx ! . . . . . . . . . .

. 'In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: It goes on.' (Robert Frost) . . A touch of Frost for us this morning. . . I'm back in Cheshire for (follow up) hospital appointments, looking round the waiting room at the tired, worried faces, it's not difficult to see we are all fighting our own battles. . . Next week off to London to stay with my son who is celebrating a BIG birthday (I was a child bride!), it's been such a sad, challenging, bitch of a year for him too. . . And I know, because of the heartfelt words and messages and secrets you share with me behind the pink and fluffy facade of my Instagram page, so many of you have your own pain, grief, anxiety, hardships and struggles. . . But life goes on. It won't always be like this. People change, circumstances adjust, the horizon shifts, there will be good times ahead. Some of the best days of your life haven't happened yet. (This time last year was very bleak for Posh and family... who knew a year on I'd be swimming in the sea on November days and we'd be daring to plan ahead...) . . Be patient, pick yourself up and keep moving forward, one mini step at a time... . Lots of love to you, whoever you are, wherever you are, we can do this! ๐Ÿ’ช . . . . My most saved image from @pinterest an oldie but a goodie... if you can credit, please do. And any suggestions for a special birthday gift for my lovely son most welcome... ๐Ÿค”

. 'I know very well what I am about, and that my skies have not been neglected, though they often failed in execution - and often no doubt, from an over-anxiety about them - which will alone destroy that easy appearance which nature always has..' (John Constable, 1821) . . To JC the sky was 'the keynote', 'the standard of scale' and the 'chief organ of sentiment', he kept a daily weather diary and is said to be the greatest sky painter of all time. . . . . . Don't let one cloud obliterate the whole sky, especially on National Stress Awareness Day. . . . . .

. 'The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est Pro patria mori'. . . War poet Wilfred Owen who was killed in France on November 4th, 1918, aged 25. . . A week later, as the church bells rang out at his home in Shrewsbury to celebrate the Armistice, Wilfred's mother Susan received a telegraph informing her of his death. . . Yesterday in Scotland, 15,000 hand knitted and crocheted poppies arranged to form weeping windows at the Old Place of Sorbie. Sent by members of the Hannay clan from around the world. Particularly poignant, the purple poppies (see stories), commemorating animals lost in service. An evocative photograpic exhibition showing horses, cats, dogs, camels, elephants... . .

. . 'Grace gives me a day too beautiful I had thought to stay indoors & yet washing my dishes straightening my shelves finally throwing out the wilted onions shrunken garlic cloves I discover I am happy to be inside looking out.

I hope you had a beautiful day, well spent, however simple... xx . . . . From the gorgeous gallery of @yomargey #onetofollow ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ’’๐Ÿ†๐ŸŽ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒŸ
