Oh I had such plans for today.
Following a couple of super busy weeks at Nursery I had decided to take today off as the end of this week heads into another busy time of seeing all of our little pre-schoolers heading off to school.
It was just going to be a day at home for catching up with all the mundane kind of stuff but it was a day off never-the-less.
But ... whilst I really tried very hard to ignore it I had a very sore throat niggling away this weekend and then last night I definitely felt yuk.
And today I feel even more yuk.
I don't know anyone who has a cold at the moment so where the heck has mine come from ?
Its one of those horrible hot and cold, feeling a bit sick, wibbly legs ones,
so in my bed is where I am staying today.
But, here's the silver lining - I can still use my laptop in bed - yay !
And whilst not a huge lot of crafting has gone on this week I have a couple of things that just had to make it in to a post today.
our little Beth headed back to Bournemouth on Friday to pick up her degree results.
All very nerve wracking .. but she did it, she absolutely nailed it ...
she got a 2.1 - HOORAY !!
Those 4 years of slogging away were so totally worth it.
This picture is of Beth on her first day at school, standing next to big sister Meg.
And from this we now have two daughters who both have degrees behind them, Meg having graduated last summer, and we could not be more proud.
Our 'little' Immi is soon to head off to Surrey to start her Midwifery degree so lots of big changes ahead for us all.
Whilst all three girls were off doing their own thing this weekend Dave and I felt that it was entirely necessary for us to celebrate anyway so we headed to our village pub,
that very conveniently is just 2 doors away,
to enjoy lunch in the sunny garden
under the shadow of the village church.
It was also a bit of an early celebration for our 27th Wedding Anniversary
which is happening this week.
The only downside, or possibly upside, of a pub lunch is that its very difficult to summon up much energy to do anything much afterwards ....
but a little bit of gentle crochet fitted the bill perfectly,
whilst sat next to a very sleepy Itsy,
who managed to fall asleep with her tongue sticking out !
I am still really, really loving working on my garden cushion covers.
The ends have now been secured and tied in,
and I have managed to find some perfect little buttons for the cushion backs.
Its just a matter of joining fronts and backs together now ...
and then I shall post the big reveal !
BUT NOW ....
I can hardly wait to tell you .....
Look what Dave and I went to see yesterday...
that we may just have put a deposit on ...
who will be coming home with us in two weeks ....
Meet Otto the Weimeraner,
a BFF for Lilou.
