And so, look who got the Spring blanket .
She stayed tucked up in it all morning on her bed at Nursery.
Mostly just her nose was poking out but every now and again she would look
up at one of the children passing and she looked as though she was wearing a
little bonnet with a bobbly edge ... very funny.
Whilst things have been super busy at work after the long weekend,
on the crafty front all is calm and restful.
Spring blanket and egg cosies finished, I have returned to the lovely sea of green bobbles
that is my second JuJu Loops bobbly wrap, and I am very nearly there.
I just cannot tell you enough how much easier and how much more pleasurable
this one has been to make simply because of my stitch markers.
I really was such a plonker to not have read the pattern properly first time round.
But .. lesson now learnt.
I so enjoyed reading Annies post earlier this week that was about nothing other than random facts.
Check it out if you haven't already seen it, and all the comments that followed.
It made me laugh aloud, and so following her lead, here are 6 bits of
Friday randomness from me ..
1.This week I discovered that little Lindt bunnies fit perfectly into the egg tray in my fridge.
2. When I was 13 my Dad, being the local clergyman, came to my school to do school assemblies.
One time he turned up and in his briefcase was my Guinea Pig, Nutty.
He then proceeded to ask me to come down to the stage - INFRONT OF ALL THE SCHOOL
and help him .. I know ! I WAS 13 FOR GOODNESS SAKE !
I can't actually remember what the assembly was about or quite why he felt the need to bring my guinea pig with him - but there you go. It stays with me !
But that was not all ...when the time came to sing the hymn obviously nobody sang it
except MY DAD !
Very loudly , and very happily.
Good times, love you Dad x
3. We have sticky buds all over our house.
The sticky bud season is back.
Now I love a conker tree as much as everyone else - but man, do those sticky buds get everywhere !
They are in the hall, on the bottom of our shoes, on the bottom of our socks, on the dogs and cats paws, on our bed, in the laundry basket, on the sofa .. you get the picture.
Bring on the conkers.
4. Twenty five minutes on the Cross Trainer burns approximately 250 calories, which equates to one medium sized Lindt bunny.
5. Cliff Richard came to tea at our house.
It was when I was about 12 and he had come to give a concert at my Dads church, so naturally, what with being British and all , he came for tea first.
Mum made some biscuits for tea and to this day they are known in our family as Cliff Richard biscuits. They are extremely yummy - and have their rightful place in Beths My Own Bake Off Blog.
He was very nice, wore a full length fur coat and asked for Sweetex in his tea.
6. When we were selling our last house Channel 4 rang up and asked if our house
could go on Location, Location, Location.
Lots of cleaning followed but it was all very exciting and I met the lovely Phil Spencer who smelt quite gorgeous. He wore a bright pink knitted waistcoat.
Its quite odd sitting in your lounge watching your lounge on the telly , with your cat asleep on the sofa.
Have a lovely , if maybe a bit wet, weekend.
