something to make you smile

Becky (the Queen of Squares) is dipping her toes back into blogging this month and encouraging us to get outside and take a few steps each day during November to help survive those endless grey days. And to share a photo or two while we are at it. Square of course.

Not all walks have to be in nature. Sometimes a walk through a town can bring pleasure. Like window shopping or popping into a café for lunch.

    That’s the first time I’ve heard the term gonks .

    1. Heyjude says:

      Gonks stem from Nordic and Scandinavian mythology. They are meant to be something like a mix of a gnome and a hobgoblin. In the original folklore, these curious little creatures were said to take a liking to barns or houses in the colder seasons.

        Oh thanks for that. Very interesting.

  2. Very cute! It took a second glance to work out hot they were made.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I’d happily have a few of them in my home.

    1. Heyjude says:
