Feeling Sheepish…

How are you all out there in Blogsville? Yes I’ve been quiet. Life is all. Been busy getting on with it and I have neglected you!

Mr ONoodles retired in August and Son no.2 graduated. Two turning points of great magnitude. We have enjoyed a couple of trips out to Copenhagen to visit son no.1 which included a most interesting road trip over to Sweden in search of Wallander on account of being Scandi Noir addicts!

In Ystad we followed in his fictional footsteps to the street where he lives, the square, the bank and down to Mossbystrand where he contemplates cases. We visited the cafe and the bookshop and ate at one of the restaurants. And yes, I bought some yarn – but that’s not a Wallander thing, that’s an ONoodles thing! We also called into Malmo and saw the city by bike seeking out sites from ‘The Bridge’ and topped it all off by driving back to Copenhagen over the Oresund.

In Copenhagen we went native and hired bikes and had a wonderful time with our tour guides- Joe and Maria , being shown the sites and sharing some wonderful moments with them. I’m not sure I have mentioned before how much we love cycling around cities. We took in bistros, cafes and a continental market. Also the biggest cycling thrill ride of the Bicycle Snake- if you are ever on a bike in Copenhagen go and ride it! Click the pic to take you to info about the Cycle Snake…

An erstwhile teacher who has taken a new path due to illness and returned to an earlier existence exploring her artistic and creative skills of stitchcraft. My oldest son laughs and says I am as mad as a spoon, qualifying the comment that I am not like other middle aged mothers... well hurrah for that! So what do I do? I love to cook, I am never without a craft project or a few on the go, I love my garden, walking, nature and the environment. I am a magpie for vintage patterns and love colour. I get pleasure from creating and giving to friends. I have a rabbit! I ride a bike and recycle... Drink too much tea and like nothing better than to lunch with friends. Snuggling up on cold winter nights is essential. I like the theatre; musicals and dance in particular. Amongst my favourite films are Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Singing in the Rain and Fried Green Tomatoes. I love to read anything from Crime thrillers to classics (love Wuthering Heights) or biographies about inspirational people. I hate sexism or racism and disingenuous people. I value friendship and above all else my family.
