Half term already

I can't believe how quickly the weeks are going.  This past week has been half term for Joshua and it has been lovely just to go out in the outdoors and run and climb.

We have been on our bikes , Joshua managed to cycle nearly 6 miles earlier in the week and then even wanted to take the dog out for a walk when we got back - he has so much energy.

During half term knitting work has to take a little bit of a back seat but heigh ho it won't be long and we won't be doing this .

Roll on the summer holidays when we hope to do some camping even if some of it may only be in the back garden.

Look at what we have been growing

Cress must be the easiest plant to grow with children, very short germination time with shoots appearing within a few days.  We just cut a few pieces of kitchen roll into a J for Joshua, wet it and sprinkled with the seeds.  Kept it damp and gave it some light and hey presto within a few days shoots started appearing and we had one very excited little boy.  The world is your oyster you can do any shape you fancy.  I wonder what shape we will do next.

Interesting Weather

We have been having some interesting weather lately.  One minute it is sunny the next it is absolutely bucketing down with rain (as it did when we were half way through the fields on Saturday taking the dog for a walk).  But that doesn't stop us going out we just have to dress up in the right clothes!  Which is sometimes easier said than done.

On Saturday we also made some bread it has been a while since we have done this.   The top picture is mine and it lasted 2 days!  The bottom is Joshua's snail which lasted all of about 5 minutes once it had cooled down!  Unfortunately I forgot to take some pictures once the bread have proved and also when it had cooked.  I had several hungry people wanting to try it.  It did taste nice though.

Easter and Finished

Can't believe how quickly the weeks are going by.  We had a lovely Easter spending lots of time together , going places , playing outside and seeing things.

And I also managed to finish this cardigan (Firth o' Forth by Kate Davies).  It is lovely to wear, the yarn is soft but also warm.
