After a busy, busy week at work the Bank Holiday
weekend arrived just when it was most needed.
There really is a lot to be said for a three day weekend in my book.
All dull and boring chores have been done,
shopping has been bought and packed away in the kitchen
cupboards for the week ahead,
the laundry pile is pretty much non-existent,
my wardrobe has had a very long overdue tidy up and sort out
( I managed to resist the urge to photograph this and show you ! )
and there's still been heaps of time for plenty of yarny activity
and general pootling around the house.
My Spring Garland had been carefully packed away,
and replaced with the Daisy Chain Garland I made last year.
My much loved Caravan blankets have made the short journey from
the caravan to our Spare Room following another little sort out and the
need to get our Caravan up and ready to go on sale.
After much thought we have decided that two large Weimeraners,
one of those still being a puppy,
a smallish caravan and the realities of the British climate
all mixed up together probably don't make
the best ingredients for the most relaxing of holidays right now
so time for a change.
The up side of this though is that the blankets look just as good in my Spare room
as they did in the caravan ! Hooray !
There has even been time for a bit of garden love this weekend
- not too much mind because its still been bloomin' chilly -
but enough time to have a wander and see how everything is just about ready to burst.
The apple blossom is having a proper little festival all
of its own out there and it's quite impossible to walk past it without
sighing happily and admiring its beauty.
And the Wisteria on the Pergola just needs a tiny bit of sun and warmth and
it too will be showing off in all its glory.
Great progress has been made on the Goldilocks Wrap
which is coming on in leaps and bounds,
and now that I have finally made up my mind on how I want it to be
I am itching to get on and start the border,
as I know this will be the bit that brings it all together.
So, all in all, a very pleasing weekend has been had
and just for the record, if any of the Political Parties are offering one Bank Holiday
weekend every month as part of their manifesto's they're definitely going to be
getting an X in their box from me this coming Thursday.
Ooh, just one last thing before I go,
I even had time to fit in a little trial of Megs wedding garland yesterday morning ...
would you like a little sneaky peek ?
I hope your weekends were all just as good,
have a great week everyone.
