I don't know about you, but as I work 32 hours a week sometimes I just don't like having plans on the weekends, I like to leave room for no commitment and allow the wind to blow us in whatever direction we are meant to go.

Nothing is never nothing despite being defined as the concept that describes the abscence of anything: no thing. I am blessed with all my senses and sometimes being still and planning / doing nothing is a very valuable thing to me.

The stainless silver heart will also join my little Mexican collection, don't get me started on how much I adore mexican design!
And so you know you are in Brighton when you won't be stared at when knitting in public (this is sock #2)
And so we come to the end of part of my weekend. I hope you managed to do nothing too this weekend :0)
See you all soon xxx
