How was your week? It was a busy old week for me and I feel pleased that I achieved everything I wanted to, and even squeezed in an hour and half power walk with a friend which quite literally was a breath of fresh air! I don't know about you, but because we've been stuck indoors so much lately, it really does feel great when you have the opportunity to be outside enjoying just 'being out'.
I've probably posted about this before, but we're lucky to be surrounded by lots of fields and trees and I'm always spotting a variety of different birds, normally I don't have the camera to hand but earlier this week I managed to get a snap of a Bullfinch. Having then got my son's bird book out, I read that Bullfinches are "often seen in couples, and are thought to pair for life. They are shy and secretive birds, and like to stay close to cover". To acutally get a snap of one, I was obviously quite lucky - I have circled where the bird was - I know, I know it's not clear but it is there I promise!
My great achievement this week is this -
It's a start, don't you think? Probably full of errors and I won't even tell you how many attempts I made to get to this point. Can I actually say that I can crochet now? Might have to put some spin on that one!
I also made these dolls this week, a kit which came from Clothkits. I bought it last year and forgot about it, so thought this was was the perfect opportunity to get on with them. Take a look at the website, lots of lovely goodies.
We're off to London tomorrow, museums a beckoning. Jack being the 'artist' wants to go to the V & A museum, Toby being the 'car enthusiast' wants to visit the lamborghini showroom - yawn, yawn.....
Have a great weekend!
