I spy with my little eye

The need for some sorting out of my mossy pebble collection from our beach

Some outdoor washing to dry with my new citrus zing pound shop pegs

Some growth in Alice's seeded wild flower pot

Some more hooky business this weekend

A ripe avocado to be eaten (yummy)

Rainbows being created in our dining room (ooh and a spider web outside too :0)

A cowl of mohair madness (+ headless me... and wierd looking chin!)

Little person in our house going green and needing this badge to be sewed onto her backpack

Thai green curry to be cooked this weekend

Some new merino anti-tickle yarn.... what is it with me and pink at the moment?

Alice's sleeping companions all tucked up on her (unmade!) bed together, Scamper, Rose and Bashful.... so sweet to see how she arranges them in the morning "so they won't be lonely mum"

Some dying Daffodils...oooooh I've just remembered it's Mother's day here in the UK on Sunday... maybe I'm in for a treat?

It's been one mad busy working week for me and I plan to wallow in that friday feeling now.
Wishing you all a dreamy weekend xox

    My youngest used to leave his bed toys all cuddled up together when he was smaller.
