I finished this wee hoodie in time for Christmas (and just in time for S. to be the perfect size for it)!  Hurrah!

Zadie Smith on optimism and despair.

We were given an old poster of garden birds (and birds of prey on the back of it) this week. I have learned a lot of interesting facts about and alternative names for birds; like the nuthatch is the only British bird that can walk down a tree trunk as well as up it; and another name for a song thrush is mavis.
