Monday Brights

Morning all!

I hope that your weekend was a good one? Again for us, quite a leisurely one, in between trying to get organised.

We go away at the end of the week for a bit of R&R in Cornwall. I dream of one day living in Cornwall. I love it there and always feel a bit like I have 'come home'. Whilst I am really looking forward to going, I know that coming back is going to be such a comedown. Also, taking a trip at the beginning of the school holidays means that I don't have anything to look forward too (except the term time starting!) when we get back. I do hope that the blues will be short lived.......anyway, I am putting those thoughts away and concentrating on having a nice time away.

So, with the trip away in mind, I have to be uber organised this week. YES, SHOCK HORROR!!! That means, no excessive daydreaming this week! Maybe just a 5 minute allocation for every half an hour! he he!

So, to kick start me for the week, some Monday morning brights!

As you can see, I like bright kitchen bits and pieces! They brighten up even the dullest, greyest days in the morning, and I don't think I could live without them in my kitchen.

My three little blanket projects completed! HOORAY! The middle one, my latest, I havn't yet really shown. I will do when I get back from my little trip away. It's amazing how something can make you feel. When I snuggle it around me it's like someone has sprinkled some kind of fairy dust over me filling me with allsorts of happy feelings and memories. I know that you will all think I am a complete loon, but    it makes me hugely happy! That blanket is why I learnt to crochet! I didn't want to learn anything else, I just wanted to make a CK style granny blanket for myself. So, now it's done, I will hang up the old hook......

.......nah, just kidding! You didn't think I was serious?!!!!!! This little hooky malarky has taken its hold on me sure and fast and won't and wont be releasing anytime soon. Most importantly, I will have to decide what yarn to take with me on my trip!!!!! I am currently making some crochet bunting for my Brother-in-laws wife. She is still having her chemotherapy and is quite ill form the effects. She, like me, likes bright colours and the qwirky, so some bunting is soon to be coming her way to help keep her spirits up.

Right, my lovelies. I have a HUGE amount to be doing. Apologies if it seems I have been a bit slack with messages on your blog posts. Like most of you, this time of year has been a hectic one, also, I don't think my blogger works all that well, I seem to miss a lot of posts. Not sure what's going on there. 

Anyway, Cheerio for now!
