Easter Adventures Part 1

We've had quite a busy Easter break so far (and after the sheer volume of meals out, we never want to eat again!)

The first few days we were based in Cambridge. I had a bit of a sort out of all my bags of material. They usually live in the corner as my drawers are full, so I went through the drawers and was able to put loads away. I forgot to take a before picture, but there were about 4 more bags in this corner! This remaining bag contains wool for an ongoing project, so I thought it was okay to leave it out.


Our friends Becky and Martin and their lovely dog Brienne came for a visit too. It was a very chilled few days, with a walk to our favourite cafe and lots of games both in the garden and inside the house. We all just needed a relaxing few days, and that is what we had.




I also managed to squeeze in a bit of crochet (and trying to get a picture of the sparkly material). Hopefully another outfit for the crochet doll will be complete soon!



Just before the Easter holidays, we also squeezed in a spot of gardening. We had a patch of the garden with a dead tree and lots of other dead plants in. Darren spent an afternoon digging out as much of the roots as possible - the picture is of him looking quite pleased with his day of work! We then went to our local garden centre to get some lovely new plants to put in the garden. Fingers crossed they grow well. We picked a variety of plants that would be bee and butterfly friendly so I'm looking forward to seeing what happens with them in the summer and so on.

Sounds like a lovely break. Having some fun playing games sounds great to me. Enjoy your new garden. It's always a pain to plant but so worth it.

Your dog is so cute!!! Lots of productive gardening done and love that sparkle in the yarn.

Seems like you have been very busy. Sometimes a few days relaxing is just what we need. Can't wait to see your flowers once they bloom!

Always good to have a fabric sort out - you never know what you might find! Hope the plants do well. xx

Uh oh. I've not been doing very well keeping up with my check-ins and so on. Hopefully that shall now improve. My excuse is, of course, ...
