Every morning I open the curtains of crumpet cottage hoping to feel rays of sunshine pouring onto my face. Alas, morning after morning, I am being disappointed and have to fight the urge not to crawl back under my warm duvet.

If the sun won’t come to us, we have to find little ways of bringing a sunshine smile indoors. Here is what has lifted my spirits this week so far:


Giant blooms with smiling faces.

Pasta dish

Garlicky mushroom pasta with feta.

Yellow napkins

Neat and tidy napkins the colour of sunshine.
