Thanks so much for all your comments about my yarn bombing fun, it has made me smile somewhat and I am amazed that it's still intact on the arm of the bench. I think I might just have to bomb some yarn before the end of this year, maybe something bigger and more noticeable... we'll see.
Have you seen this new magazine, The Simple Things from the makers of Mollie Makes? It includes all the simple things that I love in life, my home, eating, growing, making, escaping and just living a simpler life. My new year's resolution was just about this, unwinding and Living Simply. It's not always easy to keep things simple but I do try and lean that way. I look forward to reading this magazine and love what I've already seen so far. Five pounds is a little bit pricey but they do offer a special deal of £5 for the next 3 issues which is a good deal I think and by then I can decide if it's worth the price or not.
So...this post will be to celebrate the simple things that have been giving me joy lately in my life.
Country cycling with Andy and Alice with backpacks and a simple cheese, fruit and bread lunch under a tree.
Buying cheap free range eggs from a local farm to make simple omelettes for tea.
Relaxing with my girly doing some mosaic colouring in and celebrating her brilliant result in her Grade 4 ballet exam with a sweet mouse and tutu bought from a local shop.
Going for a countryside pub sundowner with my Andy.
Soaking up the last of the Summer rays on the beach and having a little more hooky fun with my covered pebbles.
Loving swallows on a wire
Baking fairy cakes with a chocolate twist(lump of choc in the centre before popping in the oven)
Recipe: Cream 175g butter with 175g brown caster sugar, 3 beaten eggs,add one egg at a time. Fold in 175g self raising powder and bake at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Oh and pop a piece of chocolate in the centre for extra scrumminess - Simple!
And last but not least, stopping to smell the flowers.
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead lovelies.
See you all soon.
