Ah it’s been a good bank holiday weekend, despite the blustery weather and a rough start.
Poor little T. has had his second bout of tonillitis in 3 weeks and so is on his second course of antibiotics. Fortunately by Saturday morning he had picked up enough that we were able to pop to Wales to stay with the in-laws. And a lovely time was had. I tried to remember to take photos with my iphone (we are currently awaiting a new camera that the husband insisted we needed).
I had time to get my knit-on… and make progress with my baby blanket; which I must confess I am getting a little bored with now. I’m so tempted to take-up crotchet when it comes to blanket making.
And I got to start my shawl for the CITC make-along!
Many mugs of tea were drank and I spent lots of time in my favourite stripy socks and my well-worn slippers (I really must get a new pair as the soles have had it). Honestly, these socks are the comfiest ever. They’re made from bamboo fibre and I’ve only heard of them being sold in my in-laws local farm shop. My hope is to build up a collection of all the different colour stripy varieties; so far I have 2 pairs.
The husband and I even had an opportunity to go out for a drink, just the two of us! What a treat. I had an amazing glass of Syrah (or Shiraz, I can’t remember which it was now). As luck would have it, the owner of the cafe/restaurant greeted us as we walked in the door, and gave us an impromptu wine tasting and then after a lengthy chat declared our drinks were for free! How amazing is that!
Then to round the weekend off the husband and I did a little Bank Holiday Monday shopping where I bought these 2 pretty notebooks. I love notebooks, and I love colourful and pretty things so it was a win-win. Unfortunately, my main purpose for shopping was to seek out a soap dish but the only variety I could find were either tacky and bejewelled or plain white.
And now we’re back to the working week! I must dash, little A. has just woken from her nap and is not happy to entertain herself or practice her rolling in her cot.
