A sad day for Finland

Today one is greeted by a sight of forlorn flags hung at half mast. Today is a national day of mourning, following the harrowing events of yesterday. The sky is clear blue and there is no wind, the leaves are the most glorious array of reds, yellows and orange - beautiful. A day to remember, a sad day.

We love Wall - e

What a great film - we took the children to see it at the weekend and what fun it was! We are great fans of the Disney Pixar films and this one did not disappoint even when dubbed in Finnish. Go see!

96 years of marriage!

We have just been over to the UK to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary - a great party of family and friends. I began to do some quick maths and worked out that between me, my parents and my 2 brothers ( and respective other halves!) we have clocked up 96 years of marriage - God willingly this time next year it will be 100! Not bad eh!?
I also enjoyed a day out in London,visiting my favourite book shop, coffee house and delicatessen. I miss it in someways but in so many other ways not at all !!!
Back home and back to work, lots of it, only 3 months to Christmas and 7 weeks until my first fair..... frantic sound of needling and wool sorting in background!
