Today has been a blissfully slow kind of a day, the very best kind of pace for a stay-home holiday week. J and I were both up and about early this morning so we decided to take a walk up... Continue reading

I had a lie in this morning and it was absolutely lush, I woke up around 6.30 but immediately gave myself permission to go back to sleep and my second wake up was around 8am I think. Getting a little... Continue reading

Daily blogging is such a strange thing to embark on, and if you've ever tried to describe your days in photos for any length of time you will recognise the slight craziness of the attempt. I was in the café... Continue reading

I had the best nights sleep last night (finally) and woke up thinking that after a pretty tiring kind of week physically speaking I can feel my energy slowly coming back. I am beyond thankful as I really haven't felt... Continue reading

Well today hasn't quite been the productive go-go-go hive of creative activity that I thought it was going to be, but the slowness has suited me very well to be honest. After the school run I went to have coffee... Continue reading

Gah, those pesky ends!!!!!!! I woke up just after 4am this morning and I kid you not, the very first thing that I thought of was those bloomin' ends, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle. Of course it was still pitch black at... Continue reading

Firstly, thank you all so much for your kindness after yesterday's post, I felt very much better just for reading your words. I think we can all relate to those days when the internal battery feels flat and yes I... Continue reading

I have felt a bit out of of sorts today, nothing drastic, just a low grade weariness of body and mind that I don't often experience on a Monday. I felt a weensy bit irritable to be honest, and that's... Continue reading

Thanks to the fact that we were the first delivery on the list for the humungous white Ikea lorry this morning, I was up and dressed by 7.15am and that doesn't usually happen on a Sunday. Seven Fifteen!! It was... Continue reading

The above photo was taken back in the spring around Easter time (hence the hot cross bun) and I was on the final stretch of stitching this lovely cross stitch. I really love cross stitch designs, I think they are... Continue reading

This month I'm following along on Instagram with the continuation of the #yarnfriendsrock challenge - it's similar to what we did in September but the October prompts are only once a week (every Wednesday) which keeps it fun and a... Continue reading

Pretty much all day today from start to finish I have thought it was Wednesday, I've no idea why but I have been convinced of it. I went out to the front doorstep first thing this morning to bring in... Continue reading

Hello!!!! It's been a beautiful Autumnal day here today and I would like to say that we made the very most of it, but truthfully we've been very lazy and Sundayish. I had a slow start to the day, getting... Continue reading

It's felt very Autumnal here today, damp and rather chilly, the sort of invasive coldness that seems to seep into your bones somehow. I really dislike feeling cold, I was born to live in a warm climate I'm sure of... Continue reading

Hi Sandra I’ve just looked right back through my sock archives, I made these ones in 2016. The yarn is Opal {Opal Sweet Spicy 3, colour 9127 Fruchtgummi} I’ve no idea whether you can still find this range, Opal bring out new ranges and colours all the time and often the older ones then get discontinued. I hope this helps! Lucyxx
