The eldest has been off school this week with an ear infection and perforated eardrum, which meant I’ve spent most of the time administering medicines and trying to entertain two fractious kiddos, nightmare. I did manage to grab some time in the evenings to do a bit of making, and last weekend I tackled the disgustingly messy craft room as well – this was mostly me just shoving things under other things with the tip of my toes, but at least we can walk across the floor again. It’s a start.
This week I’ve been mostly:
Sorting craft supplies, yarns and rolls of lovely printed papers
Enjoying the longer days, and beautiful sun drenched rooms at home. It’s been heavenly not to have to put the lights on at 4pm.
Working on new crochet patterns – bright cottons and geometric intarsia. Lovely!
Filling the house with plants and flowers – Wilkinsons have some lovely succulents for only £2.50 each. Just the right size for all my vintage china, hurrah – it’s the little things!
Spending more time outside, inspecting the garden for new shoots and blooms. I dug some horse manure into the soil as well, ready to plant out in the next few months – if you’ve treated your soil right, you’re well away.
What have you been up to this week? Has anyone been doing anything in the garden?
