Well, I haven't been doing very much blogging over the last week, I've been a bit busy so my blog had to be put on the back-burner for a few days. It's our first day back here today (Rose and I), we've been to stay with my grandparents in Dorset for a few days. Ray was working long longg shifts over the weekend, so we wouldn't have seen very much of him anyway and it was really lovely to go and spend some time with my family. I've got lots of photo's and things to write about but they will all have to wait for another post.
Here's one of the photo's I took on one of my day's away..
It's been a very busy day here, Rose and I have been to baby massage for the second time today and really loved it. She went quite calm and relaxed for a while and then she just became a bit too wriggly to continue! So then we went to a mums, babies and toddlers group up the road afterwards where I met up with a good friend. I always come away from these things feeling very tired.. a whole room of small children running around and screaming, I suppose it's all good practise for me, getting used to what's still to come!!
I thought I would post a couple pictures of some fingerless gloves I knitted. I finished them a little while before I started writing this blog, but I love them and wanted to show them off! : )
I used a yarn from Sirdar, it's called Connemara - Tweed effect chunky and it's really lovely and soft. My auntie gave me the pattern, it's from Jellywares.com but I can't find the pattern on the website to be able to link you to it.
It's a little random, but I used to be a Big nail-biter. My finger nails have always looked horrible, but very strangely.. since having Rose, the habit has completely gone away and I've been able to let them grow! Maybe I just don't have the time to sit there and nibble away anymore..! I still find it really weird though that I now have nice nails to paint, I bought some new nail varnish the other day and was so chuffed with it. It was a lovely colour, it dried really quickly and it lasted 'chip-free' for quite a while..!
I just thought I would share that with you all! I'm not sure who will actually be interested in my new nail varnish though... ha!
