Life goes on...

I was surprised at how devastated we were at the recent loss of our Boo dog. I actually felt quite guilty feeling so sad over the death of a family pet when we know people who are walking through loss or serious sickness with loved ones. The reality is that pets have this uncanny way of making their way deep into our hearts and homes.

This picture got to me the most, as Symon buried his special pet... 




Life goes on though, and recently life has been so full and busy that it's been hard to find an evening in free from events, meetings and appointments.

So much to be thankful for though.  Some recent highlights include...

Our cat Ripley! She is so much fun and such a sweet girl (most of the time!) ... 





Loving my letterboard...





Absolutely loving our church and these amazing people we get to do life with... 





Yay for bags that fit laptops...



And yay for crafty girlfriends...




Thankful for precious friends...




And family, so so thankful for family!






Lastly, thankful for this guy,  who I hope to grow old with...





So much to be thankful for!

Farewell Boo


July has been a tough month which started with the loss of our big cat Barney and has ended today with another massive loss.

Today we farewelled Boo, our much loved staffy. Having two old pets pass away close to each other has definitely been so sad, but we know we've given them the best life with tonnes of love. 









We will miss you Boo

Crochet Shopping Bag


I was looking for a quick crochet project the other day and remembered a pattern I had posted about way back in 2011 for a Crochet Grocery Tote.

I really want to cut down on my use of plastic bags, and having a few of these in my car or hand bag are definitely going to help. They are small when empty but stretch really well to hold heaps and can be made from any scraps of yarn I have left over.


Check out the free pattern here

Just like last time, I had to include a male model using my bags... 😂
