Four happy things from the past couple of weeks. As always joining in with Jen and her series.
It seems incredible, but I am still picking Dahlias and Cosmos from the garden. The weather has been wet and mild, so the annuals are still flowering. I have fallen in love with these Dahlias. They have been marked with string, and I will be making new plants from the tubers for planting out next year.
It would seem that Olly cannot get enough of crafting. At the moment he really enjoys junk modelling. I can't remember on whose blog it was, but one of you lovely people photographed your children's junk modelling, and made it into a keepsake. I thought then what a fabulous idea it was. I have decided to follow suit.
Yesterday Olly made cupcakes. I don't mean I suggested the idea and we sat down together. He came into the kitchen, opened the cupboard, took some cake cases and sprinkles, sat down, started scrunching up tissue paper, blobbed paint and glue and sprinkles on them and asked for help with the cherries. Me and Karen were quite taken aback.
I have started to learn to knit. I sit curled up on the sofa of an evening, furiously knitting lines of straight stitch in front of Netflix. I'm not sure if I'm falling further into the abyss of mental illness, or climbing out! I have dropped stitches, there are a few holes and I have realised that it is far too wide to be a scarf. But as a process I am finding it soothing. The boys seem to be impressed and have asked for scarves of their own.
We are forecast storms and high wind this weekend. I am kind of hoping that Alfie's rugby match gets cancelled on Sunday. I really don't fancy being drenched to my underwear. Have a lovely weekend, wherever you may be.
