Things I'm Loving...


I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Despite being a bit under the weather, I am still thankful and grateful for so many things.

Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

My new slippers.  Do you remember my old ones... well a certain husband of mine wore them up our long gravel driveway on a rainy day to check the letterbox for mail.   They came back dirty and with holes in... and then mysteriously a new pair were found hiding under the sheets in my side of the bed.  I only wish I could have taken a photo of him wearing the old ones up the drive!


I'm loving the fact that the ghastly orange house is finally getting painted!  Only problem is that it's the middle of winter, so it might take quite a while to do, while we wait for sunny days to paint (maybe the slipper drama forced someone to get cracking to appease the wrath of his wife!).


Loving the free holiday fun times that our local library has organised...



Loved sneaking in some crochet Craft Nerd in Public time at the library too (thanks Leonie for the pic).   Don't know if you remembered, but the library is where I first went public properly with crochet (see here).

Loving getting creative with jelly - even if they didn't quite turn out like my real life inspiration...


Loving chalk drawings... apparently that's a scalloped collar on the lady's dress (ahem)...

  10. Loving the scalloped collar on the dress - hilarious. So relieved that you have appropriate slippers for the cold weather - a girl can handle just about anything as long as she has warm feet:) Meredy xo
    p.s. still totally awed by your crochet ability.
