Feeling ....

....a teeny tiny bit Christmassy! The fairy lights are on the trees in the city. I'm awaiting a knitted personalised stocking for my special little person and I have my new mince pies plate!!

Ripple Love

At the moment I'm working on a crochet ripple blanket and I love, love, love it!
The wool is fab to work with (stylecraft special dk), and the colours are working really well.
I stole the idea directly from Heather at little tin bird (www.littletinbird.co.uk). I loved her ripple so just had to give it a go!

Coffee Date

Today I was lucky enough to have a coffee date with my husband and get paid for it! That's right! The little boy who I look after (M) has a gym class on a Tuesday so I have 45 mins of free time with no children!
Max goes to uni round the corner so it was easy to meet up. Was such a nice treat.
This is posted from my swanky new iPhone! Fingers crossed it works.

A Great Big Thank You!

I was very very lucky to win my first giveaway!  The lovely Lenia over at Ferns at the Balcony (don't know how to do a link but you can go to my blog list!) sent me some gorgeous mountain tea in a lovely tin that she customised herself.  I love it and it was great to get something from faraway in the post!  She also included a lovely letter and it really made my day.  There are lots of nice people in this world!
We haven't tried the tea yet. Max loves sniffing it and says that we have to keep some in the tin just so that he can smell it!!  We are in the process of sorting something little to Lenia but thank you so much!

Leo is as rascally as ever at the moment but also lots of fun!

I bought him some new wellies too!  Excuse my hand in the pic and the general mess in all my pics!

Hope that you all had a lovely weekend!
