Hi everyone!sorry I’ve been AWOL for the last few weeks….ive just realised my last post didn’t post 😣 oh well.
So we’ve had a busy few weeks…..my little boy turned one!!! And the celebrations seemed to go on for days!! As we have a big family we decided to visit each place so they could have quality time with him and not fight for attention. This worked well as we did it over a few days,poor boy was overwhelmed and it was very hot that weekend too!
Here he is with his great-pap!
We’ve also been camping again…it went much better this time! We went back to the farm and had fun again! There was a minitures steam rally there aswell so that added something different!
We also went to see thomas the tank engine train at nene valley and went on a train ride (husband is into trains!) To Peterborough and looked at the model railway place there. Both my boys fell asleep on the way back….maybe something to do with the 5am wakeup call we’ve been having all week!!!
Work has been manic, trying tonget organised for September and havungvthe run of sports days,music evenings,progress reports….ect….you know what it’s like! Both boys are doing brilliantly! And the eldest one got a head teachers award for being the politest boy in school!! (My nagging paid off !!!)
Summer holidays start next week,so in have 3 weeks of chaos before my break!my hours have gone long so it will be fun…. feels like returning to zombieland!!!Lol
I’ve also made a ‘healing wrap/scarf’ although the pattern is lovely I’m disappointed in it. It came up short and just not quite right. I think its because I didn’t use the same wool as the pattern ( but lions gate wool is expensive….£10 per ball and you need 2) and the other reason, the pattern requires a loose stitch and I struggled with that. Anyway here’s a picture of it.
It ended up being 19inches wide by 55inches long. The pattern on YouTube looked amazing but I now think it’s almost all down to the wool.
If i make it again I think I’ll just do it straight, with no decrease. At least I tried.
I hope you all enjoy your day…we have sunshine, so we will make the most of it!
