Well, isn't the weather just lovely..!?! As I type this, the rain is pelting against the french doors beside me and making a complete racket... even though I would LOVE some sunshine, there is something quite calm and peaceful about feeling all cosy inside in the warm of my house. I can't help but find myself thinking of all the people out there that the don't have somewhere to go though, it does make you feel very lucky to have a home on day's like this.
Yesterday Rose and I had a very lazzzyyy day... Well, I did get quite a bit done around the house and got a batch of baby food made for her amongst other things. But then somehow found myself watching not one, but Two of the Harry Potter films..! I felt guilty about spending so much time sitting on my bum, but then again I did manage to finish Rose's cardigan! I'm beyond chuffed with it, I didn't realise how much I loved it until I sewed all the seams together and added a crochet corsage to the front. I want to put her in it now! But this time I've gone and done the opposite thing and I've made the 12-18 months size (just in case) and now she won't be able to wear it for quite a few months. At least I've got it to look forward to putting her in it though. :-)
I think we deserved a lazy day not doing much really, plus the weather was of course awful, so there really wasn't much making me want to leave the house.. Rose and I did have a very busy Saturday though..I was helping out at our local NCT nearly new sale. If you help out it means that you get first pick of all the things on sale before the public come in, so I've managed to bag myself quite a few bargains! Well.. the clothes were for Rose really! I managed to get a brand new stair gate for a fiver! But it is a very long day when you've got a baby with you (Ray was working, so I had to take her with me) but she was very well behaved and had two quite long naps whilst we were there.
On Friday I made the most of the sunshine though and spent pretty much the Whole day in the garden! I got quite a bit of gardening done, but of course.. I had to make some time for sitting down, soaking up the ray's and doing a spot of crochet!
The flowers are from the most recent issue of Mollie Makes, they really were very simple to make and look so so pretty. I've used one of the flowers for the corsage on the cardigan I've knitted for Rose.
And here's her enjoying the sunshine beside me..! She does look slightly ridiculous in the huggggee hat! haha
