I always feel that January flies past and is a very busy month. After the chaos of the pre-Christmas rush and then the idleness of New Year, I'm usually good at starting the year by getting things done!
The weather has been quite chilly over the past few weeks, but we wrapped up warm and headed up to the top of a nearby field. KP was quite tired and the walk didn't last long but it was nice to get out. Hot chocolates all round when we got home.

It's been the kind of wintery weather that makes stodgy food so welcome.
I tried an old recipe from my great-grannies cook book too and made sausage pie. When I read the title I imagined nice pastry, but it turns out it's more like cottage pie, but made with sausages.
I thought I'd share some lovely pictures of a building Mr H is working on at the moment. It was a children's day nursery for many years and is being converted back into a house.
|Some beautiful old wallpaper which has another few layers on top.|
|The entrance hall with it's original tiling still intact.|
|The view from the roof. The church with the scaffolding is another building Mr H is working on.|
|The window on the stair - It's a pretty grand place!|
I'll post part 2 as soon as I'm able - lots of crafting!
