I am back! Hoooorrrrraaaay is all I can say as I have found myself rather oddly lost without being able to post my bits and bobs on you over the past two weeks. How oddly dependent I have become on you and the virtual friendships, chatter, inspiration and joy you give me. Oh yes, also the place for me to log snippets of my life and creativity too.
So while you were away I actually found myself being able to focus more on the physical rather than the virtual.I've been busy doing this and that and making and thinking and reading and playing. It's been fun and I feel that I will have a more balanced approach to the amount of time I spend blogging, blog hopping and inter-netting.
So, here are some photo's of tiny snippets of what's been giving me joy recently.
Eventually getting round to hanging my flying ducks I found in a local charity shop as shown on this post here
Going on wet, soggy summer time? walks with Alice
Adoring Beth's amazing English Country Garden (whilst sipping on some wine mind you)
Remembering how much I adore this mustard yellow colour
And this happy blue space with copious chatting, knitting and cups of tea
Watching Alice getting 'gunged' at her last junior school fete (it has been a personal mission of her's to get gunged!)
Some blue sky day dreaming and cloud shape guessing
Seeing double rainbows whilst cycling back home through our local park (can you see the very faint second rainbow in the top left hand corner?)
Cycling along the coast most evenings before the sun sets
Being the EXTREMELY fortunate winner of this beauty from Fee at her fabulous blog Chipper Nelly.
How very much I love this beautifully crafted wooden box filled with wonderland vintage covered blocks. Thank you Fee, it was the highlight of my week x
Spotting some diamond jubilee art work on our beach
Knitting, knitting, knitting a very sweet cardigan for Bethan much like the one I knitted for her last year which I will pop on my blog once I have blocked it and added the finishing touches.
Watching Alice muck about with acrylic colours
Pottering in charity shops, junk yard sales and a more upmarket restored Georgian shop
And last but not least the photo with me thinking "Hmm I think I can make one of those for 1/10th of the price" !
It's good to be back
I'm looking forward to catching up with your blogs
Thanks for visiting
