Happy New Year

I know I am behind by a week or so.  It has taken a little while to get back into the swing of things but we are getting there.  Josh is back at preschool and the others are back at work - so life is getting back to the usual routines.

Well we had a good Christmas despite colds, etc.  We went down to stay with Andy's mum in Exeter and the weather seemed very strange, very warm for this time of the year.  It was nice to spend some time just doing not a lot, slowing down and chilling.

Josh has taken to playing the piano and is very gentle in doing so.  Very little banging of the piano.  I think he has been watching his big brother and the way he plays.

Watching Harry Potter well until it got a bit too scary and both daddy and Josh needed a cushion.  Wearing the hat I had just finished knitting.

December also sees Josh's birthday on New Years Eve when we usually have a little get together with a birthday tea.  Josh has great fun and usually needs a little bit of calming down time at the end.

To recover from all this Mum invited us over for dinner  and Josh enjoyed wearing the hat from the cracker.  Mum always cooks his favourite dinner when we go over - Fish fingers and green beans! Yummy!

Still can't  believe he is 3 years old.  Where does the time go.

And to finish off will just leave you with some project pictures.

Christmas present for Mother in Law - Crofter Cowl by Gudrun Johnson and Peerie Flooers by Kate Davies.

Well I think that had better be it for now.  Don't want to bore you completely.

Have a good few days
