What have I been up to....

As usual it's been a little while since I've blogged, it's because our photos are downloaded onto our old pc not my laptop and it feels like you have to literally wind the thing up to get it started!  Excuses, excuses!

Just thought I'd add some recent photos of what I've been getting up to, or not as the case may be.

This is L, he was playing in the garden Monday and decided that his bucket made a great hat!  I think he can carry the look off.  He used to be so shy about having his photo taken, not now!  He keeps asking me to take another then loves to look at the photos after.  To save having hundreds of the same eventually I prentend to take the photo then keep showing him the same ones.  It works at the moment as he's too small to realise :)

These are my Valetines flowers from the OH, it's also his birthday on Valentines Day so we don't actually do anything Valentines.  I did make some cupcakes but they were all gone before I had chance to take a photo, we are so bad in this house for chocolate and cakes.  Though because I make them with wheat free flour I think that they taste better if you eat them within 24 hours as they seem to go dryer quicker, well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Onto the current WIP's I've got going on, or actually not going on to be more precise.  I treated myself to Kirty's Homemade Home book for Christmas and thought one of the crochet boxes would be great by the front door to put keys etc in to keep that area tidy.  Well it would be great if I finished it, I have crocheted one side so far!  Just 3 more sides and the base to go then!

The other WIP I've got going on it our sette blanket, I decided to keep it simple and just do a stripey blanket.  It's just a half treble stitch basically.  I thought the bigger the better and started with a 166 foundation chain, as you can see I've not got very far.  Though the excuse here is that we were watching the Lost series and you really need to keep your eyes on the screen because blink and you'll miss something.  

There's no rush to finish it as I just want it finished by the end of the year.

I've also been busy thinking of a new venture, I want to remain a stay at home mum when L goes to school in September next year and I have been thinking of ways to do that.  I shall reveal more when I'm ready to go, it's very exciting though :)

I hope you all had a great weekend and Valentines Day xxx

The lovely Loo from Jumbles and Pompoms tagged me at the end of last year with some fabulous questions.  With so much going on I didn't have time to answer but here they are now:

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

I wanted to be a police officer.

What do you like most about where you live?

We live in a lovely quite col de sac which means that the children can play in the street without too much fear of traffic. 

If you could only rescue three things from your house what would they be?

I've struggled a little with this as I'm not a materalistic person but other than my famliy, I would rescue my laptop, memory stick and my mobile.  Things I would need if the house was on fire!

What's your favourite book?

This is quite tough as I love reading and my favourite book depends on the mood I am in.  The books I have read most recently are the Harry Potter series which I loved despite not thinking I would.  I also love anything based on a true story or I'm an avid Agatha Christie fan.

What's your favourite room in your house?

Definitely the lounge, I've got a little corner on our sette that has my laptop, crochet bag and magazines and I don't need to move once I'm there for anything.

What's your favourite joke?

I'm not a very good joke teller.

What would you most like to change about your house?

I 'need' a craft room!

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Yes I do but I don't think it happens for everyone.

Thanks for that Loo, it really got me thinking.  I'd like to tag the following, it's up to you whether you want to accept.  They are new followers to me and I'd like to know more about you too.







That's all for now, hope you all had a good weekend xx
