What a fabulous blog post! I would so like to see the Ordinary Beauty exhibition - thank you for bringing it to my attention. I love the red coat painting and the thought of Margaret Forster peering into her own home at dusk - delightful!

The Dumfries washing line has made me laugh today! This is a very typical scene in Scotland and indeed frequent in my own Edinburgh garden. Certainly blows the cobwebs away. And hear hear for an ordinary life. It seems to be so very out of fashion these days mores the pity. Society's values are all out of kilter in my view. And don't get me started on our politicians.......


Another great read - I echo your thoughts exactly. Have just spent two days in Edinburgh and thought of you as I looked at the elegant New Town houses' windows lit at dusk.


UKIP terrifies the life out of me and I am glad I'm not the only one to find the Sainsbury's advert dreadful but thank goodness for all your lovely things.


So much here to inspire me. I am bookmarking all over the place! This is a comforting post.

Lovely post Jane. Couldn't agree with you more x

Love your 'plus side' inspiration. I, too, peer into my own home when I walk my dog on winter evenings....as well as everyone else's. Lovely x
