Just a few pictures from last weekend that I took in the garden and when we took the dog out for a walk in the fields at the back of our house.  Josh enjoyed helping Daddy do some woodwork in the garden to make a raised bed for the greenhouse to plant some lettuce leaves for starters.  Not sure what else we have planned to go in the raised bed yet.  (Josh would much rather use Daddy's tools than the child tool set he has!)
Yet again this week I have been doing some crafting but don't seem to have taken any pictures.  At the moment I am working on a baby cardigan as a sample for a friend's yarn shop.  Must try and take some pictures.

Hope you are all having a good week and enjoying the sun (if you have sun).

Long time

Why is it that time seems to fly by so quickly?  I have been meaning to write on my blog for the last two weeks.

Nearly two weeks ago we had a family get together at my parent's house for my Mum's and Alex's birthday.  Mum turned 65 and Alex 24.  We had a lovely lunch, a walk to the park and got back to Mum and Dad's and were preparing tea when Josh tripped on the rug and fell face down on the coffee table.  Unfortunately it meant a trip to casualty.  2 hours later and 5 steri strips we were back home - a bit shaken up and bruised.

Thankfully we are back to normal now and just have a small mark on our face which just looks like a scratch.

Since then we have had Mother's Day and look what greeted me when I came down to breakfast that morning.

The daffs are from the garden but the letters are all handmade by Alex and each letter took about 20 minutes to do (I think I may have given up after the first word)!  I also had a Cath Kidston bag which I have wanted for ages.

Just to show that after Josh's accident life is back to normal here are a couple of pictures of normal life in our household.

The top one is Josh's Den which he loves to sit in or hide in when you want him to do something and the bottom one is Josh's new climbing frame in the garden, well at least new to him it was a hand me down from his cousins.  He absolutely loves it.  He is out in the garden in the morning in his pyjamas at 8.10.

And just to show that spring is finally here.

Have no idea what they are?  They were in some woodland in the park near my parents house.

Hope you all have a good week and I hope to be back next week maybe with some knitting projects that I have been doing.

Long weekend

I know it is almost the next weekend and I have been meaning to write this post all week but the week just seems to disappear.

Last weekend unfortunately in one way we had to make a trip to Norfolk for a funeral but it was lovely to see some of the family and spend some time relaxing and talking with them.  It was two years since we last went to Norfolk and Josh was able to do and see so much more this time.

Like climbing Castle Mound in Thetford with Daddy while Mummy stayed at the bottom.  I was reliably informed that it was cold and windy at the top.  I think coming down he spent more time on his bottom, but had a great time.

And walking along the river to Nuns Bridges and doing some fishing with sticks!  It is his favourite thing at the moment.  Our house always has lots of sticks around that can be used as a 'Fishing Neck'  (fishing net).

Latest craft make which was made for a little girl friend of Josh's for her 4th Birthday on Monday.  The felted flower comes off the card and can be worn as a badge.

Hope you all have a good weekend.
