♥ Weekend Bliss ♥

By PaisleyJade - Monday, October 10, 2011

There was only 4 of us at home this weekend, so we made the most of it and lived it up a bit.

"Living it up" in our house means doing things like going to McDonalds (thanks Grandma & Grandad for the spending/spoiling money) and visiting the local pet shop.

We also caught up with lots of precious family members and ate delicious goodies.

Did I mention there was also a 'pet slug' thing going on?  That was until I discovered one of the slugs being stroked and cuddled up in a blanket (it was also a wee bit dry).  The pet slug phase ended right there and then (and thankfully the slug was returned to the garden safely).

And of course, I continued on with the birthday blanket of torture.

That my friends, is a broken crochet hook.  The blanket of torture strikes again.  Crochet is definitely a dangerous and strenuous hobby.  For all of you wondering, no, I have not finished the blanket yet.  I have 10 days (10 DAYS!!!!) to go.  Aaaarrrrrrggggghhhhhh!!!

All in all, it was a great weekend, but I'm soooo glad my big boys are home safe and sound.

How was your weekend?

    Not gonna lie, this line "We also caught up with lots of precious family members and ate delicious goodies." under the baby chicken kinda scared me!!

    YOU CAN DO IT for the blanket, stink about the broken crochet hook... I had one of those recently and NOBODY knew how it happened.... lol.

  8. A broken crochet hook?? Woah you are hardcore! ;)
    Although having 'Pet Slugs' is a little on the bizarre side, I do miss the child-friendly size of slugs in NZ... over here they are anywhere from 3-5 inches long and FAT and HIDEOUS! They always come out onto the track where I run after the rain and I spend my whole time dodging them and grossing out... eeewwww.

  9. Gosh you've been up to the same us, we've been right there at Kamo Mcd's and looking at the chicks. We probably passed in the St

  10. Oh no, that very ambitious blanket is quite the marathon isn't it?? You're doing such a gorgeous job, hang in there, you know it will be amazing & your big boy will love it. Happy hooking, with a new hook, love Posie

  11. Wow, what a perfect weekend :) I'd love to do ALL those things, with a lil less cuddling with the baby slug hehe That's a super looking petstore too... Watching chickadees is always a treat! :)


Thanks for your comments... I love hearing from you!!!
