This is a chilly house, there's no doubt about it. A kitchen with north facing windows and wooden floors over an earth cellar mean that there are times when the temperature in this room - in which I spend a lot of time - feels lower than the ambient temperature in the garden. There is one advantage. Flowers, like these lovely daffs, last for ages. I think I got ten days out of these. Cold comfort indeed.
PS The little heart card was one I made at the Women's Library WI craft day last month (we made the cakes!). It's made by iris folding. Took a while to do with scrap pieces of paper but looks rather pretty and is an oddly soothing activity. There are loads of free patterns around if you google the shape you want.
