Spring has sprung (part 1)

Having returned from the second school run of the day, here I am, all ready to bombard you with photos.....and technical difficulties abound :( so, it will be a quick catch up and photos in part 2!!

Sniffles and sneezes have plagued me, but,  back on it, working out, enjoying Spring, having family fun and baking......for work and fun.

The kids have a blackboard and they write things up on it that they want to do at the weekends, there is always baking and hama beads!! It's a good idea...

I'm actually just catching up with Barefoot Contessa.  I just love her recipes.

I have completed a bright baby ripple blanket, photo to follow, I am sooooo pleased with it :)

T had a day off midweek so we snuck to the local coffee shop for sustenance, nice just to sit and watch the world go by with him..we've always loved to sit in a cafe and people watch, talk about hopes and dreams, just sit and read, happy in the silence or the chatter - special times.

Thanks for dropping in part 2

A busy busy week!!

After a fairly hectic half term, I have had an even busier first week back at more slow lazy starts, tea and telly in bed, no, it's up out and at's left me feeling a bit frazzled to tell the truth...working out has gone out the window and a sense of out of sorts has descended...

But, there have been some smiley face moments...runny poached eggs....hama bead designing, a full fruit bowl, tete a tetes, happy running.......quiet sitting...

A completed flower brooch...

My little A's blanket wip, colours chosen by the young lady herself no less

My little J' s who, again he has chosen his colours...

I've also squeezed in some work....

And I've indulged in my favourite hazelnut coffee, strong and black...Just the ticket.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and we'll catch up again soon xxxxxxxxx
