february in pictures

When I posted ‘January in pictures’, I said that we’d not been up to much because we’d all been ill and the weather had been bad. February has just come to an end (thank GOD!) and we still haven’t done much because…. we’ve all been ill and the weather was bad. 2015, so far, you suck.

Still, we did get a few chances to potter about and discover new places to eat and get coffee, as well as visiting some old favourites. The kiddos spent some time crafting, I finished my favourite magazine feature so far and it was my birthday, so not all bad.

Halfway through March, and the weather is starting to pick up down South; we’ve had some sunny (and dare I say it, warm-ish) days, and I’ve just received all my seeds for the garden this year. I’m doing mainly flowers, with some veg thrown in for good measure – nothing too taxing; the last two years have kind of taught me what does and doesn’t do well in our garden, so there’s less guesswork now. I’m particularly excited about planting a glorious bucket of sweetpeas given to me by a friend for my birthday; they’re my favourite flower to grow, as they just give you so much. I’m also working on my first big crochet commission, which is why there are (even) less blog posts than usual, but I’ve got some craft tutorials lined up for the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned!

I’m teaming up with the lovely Fritha and Lori for the Style in your City linkup this week. Come and join in!
