Hi there, haven't had a chat in ages!! It's so good to get the time to catch up and tell you all my news and the things I've been up to in the last month or so. I can't believe it's so long, where does time go?
It is a bit like greeting an old friend and in some aspects feels just like yesterday that I was writing my last blog!
So Hooky wise catch up:
I started a Flower burst cushion using Lucy's blog and tutorial to help me.
and it's coming along beautifully (I'll post my Ta-dah! for this cushion very, very soon.)
Parenting wise catch up:
I've been back and forth to Leeds to firstly settle him, move him into his flat, he ahs a great view
and then to catch up and fill the cupboards!! It takes about 2 hours 45 minutes to travel there and so we've stayed over the last twice. In fact the last time, last weekend, was on my birthdayand the grand age of forty four, so we stayed at the beautifully boutique-ified Malmaison hotel in Leeds as a treat!
I had such a lovely birthday, seeing my big boy, sharing food and then seeing my lovely brand new baby nephew too! Yum, yum, baby cuddles, with his new baby blanket.
I added some edging to it at the last minute and I think it really finishes it off.
I do miss Big grown up E, but he's settled, happy and beginning to mingle in the student musical world that he now inhabits so at least he's getting himself out and about, and he can cook all manner of things now!! He has even got to grips with the laundrette, so all is good. Phew!!!
Yarn wise catch up:
Well of course I went to Yarndale with my friend Fi and we stayed overnight in a lovely Inn called The New Inn at Clapham near Skipton. They served delicious food: here was my small desert, chocolate brownie...
We had a lovely evening and two days at Yarndale, despite the triple booking of the town over the weekend and the hoards and masses of hooky, yarny, crafty, knitty minded people descending on the little dales town! I have completed my special Yarndale post which you can see here!
School wise catch up:
I have survived and recovered from my trip to London with my Year 6 children and the staff, however I did return quite sick (literally) and needed a weekend to recover. It was incredibly tiring and I didn't get any hooking done but I did see lots of inspiring sights, and have bonded and gelled well with my team, and the kiddiwinkles. It was amazing. A yarn bombed cab anyone!!
So now for more blogging and writing. Was great to see you and have a natter. Must not leave it so long next time!! Take care xx
