Finally the Spring has come.  We have been enjoying being outside a lot more, going for walks with the dog without having to wrap up quite so much or just playing in the garden.  Lets hope the weather lasts a little longer.

The only downside to the nice weather is that my crafting has been taking a bit more of a back seat.  Oh well.  Little one will be back at school next week and hopefully I shall have a little more time to do some more crafting.  I have lots of ideas in my head that I ought to put on paper so I don't forget what they are.

Jam Tarts

Look what we made earlier in the week.  I haven't made or eaten a Jam tart for a long time and when we got home from school the other afternoon I just fancied making something edible with Joshua, it made a chamge from little iced cakes which is usually our quick make.  And they were yummy!!!!!

This week has finally started to feel like spring.  There are signs of life in the garden.  The washing has actually dried on the line.  The sun has been out a bit more - it makes everything so much better when the sun is out, apart from the fact that it shows all the dust and just how dirty my windows are.  We even have seedlings coming up in the propagator.  Roll on more bright and warm weather.

Lego, lego everywhere!

This morning as it was the last day of half term with just the two of us we decided to go and see the Lego Movie.  I did wonder if I would be totally bored but it was very good (unlike some of the other films we have been to see).  I found I kept trying to spot the lego figures we have  and Joshua is all inspired to make his own city now!  Not sure we have quite enough bricks for it all but we have quite a few so he can make a start on it.  It is interesting all the boxes of lego he had for his birthday have almost all been made into something other than what the instructions suggest - lego is very good for working the imagination.

This weekend we shall try and do some things that are more outdoors unless the weather is really bad!   And no doubt at some point make cake.

Think I am going to really miss a little someone next week when he goes back to school.  Roll on another 6 weeks and it will be the Easter holidays.

Half Term

Sorry photo overload there.  today we went to the aquarium and had a brilliant time.   I have decided to have various activities planned for this half term so that we don't spend quite so much time in front of the television or in the house, instead getting out in the fresh air or seeing things.  There are so many good things to see and do locally and we don't seem to use them very much.  We always seem to do the same thing each holiday so before half term I spent a while scouring the internet for ideas of things we could do.

So long

I don't know why I choose this picture but I did.  They are some brooches/badges I make for birthdays.

It is so so long since I last blogged,  I just haven't known what to say.

Little one has settled into school which is good but is very tired which is not so good.

The weather is awful so I have had quite a bit of time to get some knitting done.  I also recently signed up to run a half marathon and am raising money for Send A Cow charity  so putting in the training has been hard in the conditions recently.  It seems fine once I got out of door but it is that getting out of the door that is hard.

I do hope the weather improves soon.   I am fed up of constantly getting wet.

Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas to any one still reading my blog.  I hope to update it a little more often next year when I hope to have a little more time now we have finally got into a routine as regards school.  Sorry not much really to blog about recently - have just been trying to get all my Christmas knitting out of the way which has now been done.  Finished Little one's sweater this morning.  Tried it on and fits him so well.  What a pleased mummy as I had thought about frogging it at several points but I think it looks ok.  Sorry not a very good picture but the light is dreadful today - storms battering the UK.

Anyway hope you all have a lovely Christmas and have a restful time to spend with family and loved ones.
