Oh May, May, May, you are going past waaaaay too fast and need to slow down!!! May is my absolute favourite month and it is is rocketing past at such a rate that I just can't seem to catch my breath. Sometimes life is like that isn't it? It's like the days have been installed with high speed jet boosters which leave you spinning and reeling as they zoom past under your nose.
I'm relishing the school run at this time of year, loving the clear light and gentle warmth of our morning jaunts along the canal. I'm not entirely sure you can call 11 degrees warmth, but it'll have to do and I'm not complaining. Compared to the frigidness of April, May is turning out to feel positively balmy around here.
The blossom came and went in it's usual whirl of speed this month. It was totally fabulous while it lasted and the pink petal blizzard that rained down on us last week as we walked to school was wonderful too. I am alternating between flip flops (with turquoise painted toenails, yay!) and my beloved hand-knit-socks-and-boots combo. Some days it's just too bloomin' cold still for bare toes, and besides I do so love love love the feel of my feet in hand knit socks.
Last week I had some little mice on and off my hook, oh I did so love bringing them to life! I used scraps of 4ply baby merino with a 2.5mm hook and the resulting mousey cuteness made my heart melt. I also made a little floral bower to provide a house for the mouse(s), I'll show you that in a day or two once I've gathered together my photographs. I love hooking up little decorative gifts, such creative fun to be had with yarn and hook.
I hope your days are happy and bright and that they are not leaving you in a spin! Take it gently my lovelies.....
