I love bright December mornings when I can sit at my desk without having to switch the light on.  It is one of life’s ironies that when I have close-up work to do like stitching and cutting lampshades, the morning is dark and sunless, while on admin days the sun streams through the window!

This is today’s view from my bedroom window – what beautiful clouds.


Whenever I notice a special cloud formation I am frustrated that I can’t put a name to it, so today I was prompted to find out.  I came across a great site The Cloud Appreciation Society – it has some stunning photos.  Being no expert I am guessing mine is cirrocumulus, do let me know otherwise.

I keep meaning to invest in some daylight bulbs for my studio and have just discovered that you can buy energy saving daylight bulbs at this UK site.
