Hello, how are things with you? Here we're plodding on with our small routines and trying not to panic too much at the thought that Toby may not go back to school until September. He's happy with walking in the... Continue reading

I know that you're most likely to be here for the knitting, but fair warning there's none of that here today. Instead this post is all about my lovely garden visitor Kit and her sweet cubs (eeeek!) Kit started visiting... Continue reading

It sounds like you are being very sensible Ailsa, though distancing yourself can feel very isolating. I hope you continue to find some online companionship and reassurance from the many others in a similar situation. Stay safe and well there too xxx

Thanks so much Vivienne, I can't quite let spring pass by without sneaking in a couple of pictures of the plum blossom, I always wish it lasted a little longer as it's so very pretty. But it does feel a bit surreal this year with things as they are/ I hope you and all those you love stay safe and well, all the very best my friend xxx

These are unsettling and odd times and it's very frightening for our older family members, I hope your Mum is doing OK and that you all stay safe and well there x

Hi CJ, glad there's some beautiful blooms and blossoms to brighten your days there and you're right, it's definitely cheering to see the sun again. Hope you and yours are safe and well. Toby#'s coping OK at the moment and I have some new lego and press-the-button sound books on order to try to help keep him busy! Take care xxx

Oh Imogen, please don't worry about my hens - you cannot see the full extent of the run in this picture, it's much larger than it looks here and they regularly free range in my garden when it is safe for the to do so (as you'll see if you care to scroll back through my blog over the years). This run keeps them safe from being slaughtered by the foxes - please don't assume I am cruel on uncaring towards them from this picture :)

The first sign of spring around our way is the arrival of snowdrops. They are such delicate little flowers, held aloft on a single slender stalk above smooth, narrow leaves they shimmer in the cold late winter breezes. And yet... Continue reading

The first few months of the year always feel to me like a time for quiet rest and a gentler pace of life. Perhaps it's the short daylight hours of winter which make me feel a little like hibernating and... Continue reading

Out in the woods most of the trees have shed all of their leaves now, but those that do still cling to the branches, mostly on the oaks and birches, have been burnished by the early morning frosts and shine... Continue reading

It was the school half term break here last week and we had a fun time keeping Toby active and busy: lots of wood walks, tandem trike rides, swimming and rides on the mini steam train that he loves. Alongside... Continue reading

Hi Flor and thanks, Yes there are alternative feet and legs for any of the animals that include the trainers on Ravelry or Etsy: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/shoe-supplement https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/279233744 Please note that the trainers are knitted as part of the feet and not as something that fits over existing feet, happy knitting with best wishes Julie
