Springing Forward

Springing Forward

I feel like I am finally getting into the groove of this year. It helps that the sun has been shining on occasion. The affect on my mood is almost instant and I find I achieve so much more…

Summer Lovin'

Cornwall {2013}

Summer Lovin'

Hello - It's been a while! I've spent the summer enjoying being home with the children. We've enjoyed a week in Cornwall with some beautiful weather (for a change), weddings, family celebrations and a lot of just hanging out ;)

Stourhead

and a seventh birthday

Stourhead

We celebrated Oli's 7th birthday this year with a walk and a cream tea at Stourhead. Just us. It was sunny and very hot, like the day he was born, but the walk down to the lake was beautifully shady...

Kaffe Fassett

A Life In Colour Exhibition

Kaffe Fassett

It's half term this week so all the children are home - which means a good dose of chaos here! I've been working on lots of projects but as I've not had the time to photograph any I thought I would share some of the photos I took from the Kaffe Fassett exhibition last weekend...

For the love of vintage

Frome Vintage Bazaar

For the love of vintage

The sun has finally made an appearance here and we've been making the most of it. Although typically the minute the weather warmed everyone caught colds! Despite the sniffles the children were very happy to be out in the sunshine over the weekend.

Not wanting to spoil my their fun I decided to leave them in the garden with Rob and made my way to the Spring Vintage Bazaar in Frome...

Crochet - A New Hat for Lulu

and a trip to the lighthouse

Crochet - A New Hat for Lulu

I can't believe it's been two weeks since I posted! I didn't crochet at all when the children were home for half term. Not a stitch. It had got to the point where I had so many ideas and half started projects that I was starting to feel overwhelmed by the chaos in my head! So I took a step back and instead of crocheting in the evenings I read some books (I've missed reading as much as I used to), caught up on some TV and had a break from 'creativity'. 

I went back to my notebook this week and slowly made my way through some projects/requests...

Lazy Days...

...and a bit of Harry Potter

Lazy Days...

The children have been home for the past two weeks for their half term holiday. I love the October half term as with Halloween and Bonfire Night there is always lots to look forward to, but as the nights draw in it's also a perfect time to cosy up and do very little...

Paris in Autumn

Paris in Autumn

I've had a bit of a blogcation recently, this is due to several reasons but one of the nicest reasons I have been absent was a, very much longed for, trip to Paris!

A few months back my friend Jo and I finally decided that after years of wanting to visit we would book a trip for us to spend some girlie time enjoying the museums and attractions...

Holiday Snaps - Cornwall {2012}

Holiday Snaps - Cornwall {2012}

We had a lovely holiday this year along the North Coast of Cornwall at the very pretty Mother Ivy's Bay. We were lucky with the weather and managed 3 lovely days on the beach visiting: Constantine Bay, Polzeath and Mother Ivy's Bay. We spent a lot of time in Padstow which was the closest town for food (can't seem to go to Cornwall without having some of Rick Steins posh fish & chips) and the days that were grey or rainy we headed inland for some sight seeing...

To The Beach...

To The Beach...

The Sun is out! I can't quite believe it but it really is. After months of rain we did what most Brits enjoy when the sun makes an appearance and headed to the beach...
