It's raining, it's pouring...
It's a warm and wet Sunday here in England so I'm enjoying some quiet time this afternoon after a busy morning helping out at Sunday School. The kids amaze me, they are so funny and love to sing and dance they help me to remember to lighten up and enjoy myself too, it's so easy to get bogged down with life and forget to have fun.
This afternoon I'm doing some crochet, I started on my first ripple blanket using Lucy's pattern. It's coming along great I'm on the second row, I think it will take me a very long time to complete this but it'll be so worth it. I'm going to use it for our bed. Currently our house is in the process of being completely overhauled so every room needs a makeover! We bought it like that ;) We do like a challenge. So this blanket is my attempt to start putting some love into our home and transform it into a beautiful vintage style country home :D I'll make sure to show you some pics sometime so you can see the transformation.
It just downpoured so I thought I would quickly grab a photo of my tomatoes to show you, these have been grown from seed. I'm really pleased with how they have turned out, not bad for a first attempt. My carrots aren't looking too hot though, they look like the tops have been eaten by slugs :( But I'm still hoping they will work out.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my podcast, I really enjoyed doing it so look out for another one soon.
I'm off to snuggle with Ellie. Have a great Sunday!
