I thought I would post a few of the photo's from last weeks trip to Dorset..
I think it's so lovely that in years to come, I will be able to look back at this blog and remember all of the special memories from when I originally wrote these blog posts.
This is my Great-Grandad Dooks, Rose's Great-Great Grandad. Every photo of him holding Rose is so precious as he's now 88 years old! Although, he's still extremely active for his age.. it's very impressive!
It was lovely to see some other family members of mine, I don't think I realise how much I miss them until I'm back there with them.. Rose seems so much bigger to me everyday, so to everyone else she must look completely huge after not seeing her for a few weeks.
We went back for a walk up Golden cap, Ray and I have been going for walks up there for quite a while. I'm not entirely sure how I drew the short straw, as I ended up being the one carrying her Up the hugggee hill! I felt exhausted by the end of it! But the view made it worth while..
Rose travelled back down the hill on her Daddy's back.. he had the much easier job of going downhill! I've not been very strict with myself on Slimming World, so I probably needed the extra exercise to be honest!
Yet again I couldn't resist starting a new project. Big surprise there!
It's a baby shrug for Rose, but this time I'm knitting it in the 12-18 month size. So at least after spending all the time knitting it, she'll actually be able to wear the thing!! I've just got to do the ribbed edging for it now.. I had no idea how to pick up the stitches from around the edges, so I was at a bit of a stand still until my auntie showed me what to do.. Thank you Lettie!
