Look what arrived in the post for me! I am thrilled. I have NEVER won a trophy by myself that I get to keep (I hope I can keep it. Please can I keep it? Pretty please).


There was also a useful and most excellent hoodie which I will live in, a keyring and a car sticker.   The last two look good in my new horsevan.

So a huge thank you to Haynet for my trophy and gifts.  Happy, happy, happy.


The other night the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis or Merrie Dancers, put on an amazing show.  All these photos were taken from the back door.  It was a very cold crisp night.  My camera and I spent the evening watching this majestic mysterious light display.

I have always said that the Northern Lights should be accompanied by a soundtrack and that night I was in luck.

Lambie and Lambster were in their bedroom-garden burping and baa-ing gently to me.  Perhaps not the magnificence of Elgar’s Enigma Variations or Wagner’s Die Walkürenritt but still it was certainly atmospheric in a different way!

I am easily pleased and my duet was done with love (and some complaining that they couldn’t “help”).  My exotic life!

    Lucky you! The photos are just wonderful (love that neon green)! And I wouldn’t have traded your background “music” for anything else.

    P.S. How fun to get not only the Award, but also a “goodie bag” – just like the Academy Awards, but way more useful!

    Congrats on the lovely award! And thank you for the Northern Lights pictures. I have never seen these in real life, so this is lovely.

    Congrats Frances! I believe you have earned this with many hours of input – photos, inspiration, swearing, joyful mess, perspiration and what have you. I am so happy for you and proud to be a reader from early on! Keep the light burning bright please! Xoxoxo from New York!
