A long walk

I am kicking myself that I didn't take photographic evidence to prove we all made it to the top, but the mountain rescue helicopter was there and the children were more interested in watching it take off!  I wasn't expecting us to get all the way to the top but it seems fruit pastilles and cookies are great walking fuel!

Toffee bunnies

I love this photograph, taken by the talented Katia Crolla.  Bunny hats are available now in time for Easter in a range of colours and sizes in my Etsy shop.

In the garden

Although it is tiny I really love our garden.  It is well used by all of us for playing and relaxing and both children enjoy helping out with the gardening.  The sun has been out these past few days and what a difference it makes.  Time to dust down the garden chairs so we can start eating outside again!

I would love to share a full shot of the garden but at this moment it needs a good spring clean!  Perhaps I will put up an "after" photo when we have tidied it up ready for spring!

After the recent high tides we made a quick (and bracing!) trip to the beach and found thousands of shells had been washed up with the storms.  Needless to say we now have a huge collection of shells at home :)

Self Striping Yarn

I love using self striping yarn, especially the Adriafil Knitcol range.  On my needles right now is a baby hat knitted in the shade called Degas.
