We are on our half term break this week, and it feels rather great. We are spending our days mostly indoors, relaxing, taking it easy. The Little People were all so tired at the end of last week, so we are relishing these gentle days at home where not a lot happens. Recharging our batteries and taking a break from the routine of school and work.
I've been lounging and loafing, loving being at home with the family really. Early mornings sat in bed reading, drinking coffee, crocheting, chatting with J. Late breakfasts, mid morning coffees and toasted hot cross buns. Leisurely afternoons with the fire lit, a glass of something chilled and bubbly, some sock knitting and new blanket making (oh my Hydrangea blanket, it is giving me palpitations!). A little bit of fresh air when needed, short local walks in cold wintry landscapes.
I finished my Moorland Blanket today, the final stitch darned into the edge of The Edge. I wrote up the full tutorial for the edging and composed my CAL post ready for Friday. It's been quite a lot of work to squeeze into a day filled with Little People and a persistent kitty, and I have such mixed feelings about it all - I'm so very, very happy with my blanket, but so so sad that the crochet-a-long has come to an end. I have loved doing it, and I shall miss it.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) I am flying away for a few days, heading south. I'm not going far, just down to Dorset to catch up with my brother and visit my folks. I am so looking forward to a few days away, a bit of a stint by the coast and some family time.
The tutorial and Part 7 of the Moorland CAL will be here on my blog on Friday morning, all being well. I'll still be in Dorset then, but I'm going to attempt to set a timer on the posts so that they will magically appear at 9am on Friday morning, I hope I'm up to the job!
I shall throw a pebble or two in the English Channel and send out some ripples of happiness to you all....
