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
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
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
