Hey hey it's Friday, time to remember some of the little bits of my week...
- First up, is some crochet. Oh my I felt this serious NEED to crochet, that happens when I've been knitting too much and it's vice versa when I've been crocheting too long. I feel really blessed that I have both these skills. Definitely worth celebrating and being grateful for. I've been playing with some Rowan yard tweedy yarn I bought on our last trip to London. This little bit of fun crochet with beach pebbles will be revealed soon!
- I must celebrate the sprinkle of snow we woke up to on Monday morning.It was only a thin layer but beautiful none the less and to top it all a little surprise message from our girly on my car front windscreen which she must have written on her way to the bus stop. (Why don't 12 year old's wear gloves...can someone please tell me? My guess is that's its far too uncool but her answer is that her hands don't get cold! Ummm....no comment)
- Finding some of my lavender that I gathered from my pots in the summer in our little outside bicycle shed by sheer accident. I genuinely forgot it was there until I was greeted with the most divinely smelling shed known to (wo)man when I opened the door :o) I will be removing the flowers from the stalks this weekend and no doubt thinking of where I can sneak some into drawers. Isn't it just gorgeous?
- Look at what the desire to crochet makes me do! I don't know what it is but it's a crochet something of the botanical kind in my mind. Alice thinks its an acorn, I almost agree but actually think it's an new species undiscovered to mankind...... the acornlatis hookilaris
- And last but not least, a GIANT custard cream bought at a rather well known coffee take out. I can put my hand on heart and say that this was bought as a "family" biscuit at £1.45 for it's ginormous* size. However, it may, just may have come home with a bite or two in it.I like fun things like this as long as they are taken in their context and not literally as a biscuit for one. Gosh, that would be scary taking portion distortion to another level!
That's me done for the week, I hope everyone stays safe and warm if it snows in your patch. It's 7.15am here and the sky looks pregnant with snow. We're excited and prepared with wellies and bottom sleighs (those plastic thingy's don't know what they are called). Forget the fact that the roads will come to a grinding halt and all the bread will be sold out at the supermarkets!(this phenomenon has always baffled me?)
Off to work I go...
Sending love and sprinkles of pretties to you all
