Normal Service Resumed

I feel like I blinked and the school summer holiday passed by. After 6 weeks of having my beautiful girl at home during the day, she's now returned to school. No longer the young ones, but to the heady heights of year 8. New school uniform, hours spent putting in name tags, shoes shined and buffed and back my baby went yesterday.

As much as I miss her smiling little face during the day, it's also good to get back into a routine and have some structure.

Today I managed 2 loads of washing, a walk around the park with the dogs, planted my cyclamens for winter and cooked a lovely roast dinner.

I wish I had lots of photos to show my lovely day, but I do have some pictures to share from my crafting makes.

Feeling all autumnal... falling leaves make me think about hedgehogs. Do you like these cuties?




Hattie and Herby, knitted in scrunchy, sparkly eyelash chunky yarn. I didn't find it the easiest yarn to work with, hard to see where I was up to, but I do think it gives a lovely effect and plan to make some more.

I'm off to have a nosey around and see what everyone else's up to.

Take care

  1. I have some eyelash yarn to make Tomte beards with for the dreaded C word, but I'm not looking forward to using it! I'll have to choose a day carefully when nobody will interrupt and I can concentrate!
    Love these cute critters, though, so if all goes well I may try another project with it!

  4. I have to say that I am not finding it all that easy this time round. Usually I am really sad to see the kids go, but happy to get back into my routine, this time, I am just a little too blue for my liking. I am really missing my little kiddies, but for the first time today I am feeling just a little better. I hope you enjoy your weekend xoxo

  5. Awww, those hedgehogs are so cute. Eleanor had weeks off this summer after her GCSEs so it was very strange having the house to myself again yesterday. I also did two loads of washing, took Archie for a walk and cooked a roast dinner, lol.
