Jeanne is happy to be home

Soft boiled eggs and soldiers. Eggs from a girlfriend's hens. Sliced white bread from the bakery with lashings of butter. A sprinkling of salt.

My family to share it with.

Oh yes, it is good to be home.

We begin our final term of school today after our unexpected super-long holiday. You'll find us in the sitting room by the open fire snuggling under Grannie. She is almost, almost done. So satisfying that.

A Peaceful Day indeed.


  1. Welcome home Jeanne, hope you enjoy these peaceful days with your family. xo

  2. Nice to have you back Jeanne. Enjoy these last weeks of winter with your family - not long now until Spring! :) Love the bunnykins plate too! x

  3. So nice to have you back where you belong!
    Just the way I love an egg, too. Did they have a wonderful time? No broken bones? Hope you dear Mum is going well and I hope your term is great.

  4. I have recently begun to follow your blog. It is so warm and inviting. Thank you for sharing your life with us. I am also a Charlotte Mason follower and a homeschooling mom of three boys. We have used AO for two years and are currently helping to pilot the guide that ChildlightUSA is formulating.
    My little men adore soft boiled eggs with soldiers. I think part of this love has to do with "soldiers", eating them with toast simply wouldn't be half as romantic. Would it?
    Tomorrow we shall eat this lovely comfort food for our breakfast. Thank you and many warm wishes for a wonderful week for you and yours.

  5. Welcome Home Jeanne!

    It is indeed weather for snuggling under Grannie. Have a lovely time with her completion.


  6. Welcome home, if your weather has been like ours (very wintry) then snuggling up is perfect:)

  7. Welcome back Jeanne! Hope you had a lovely break.
    The weather has turned a bit here, I am enjoying the warmer days:)


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
