Evening Bloggers !
How are we all keeping ? I’ve been trying all day to get this post done up and now just before last minute jobs before bedtime I manage it lol! This week has been like that, so so busy at one stage I think I met myself I was going round that much and boy am I tired ! Some evenings I’ve not even had the energy to knit. I think now as the weeks go on less and less will be done so its good I got a good start in.
Children are all settling in well and are enjoying their new school, that has taken a load off. We now start into this terms after school activities as well..so its back to piano, swimming, library runs (well they are year long lol) and now this year some guitar and that’s just to start with, there could be more lol. Here are the biggest 6 all ready for heading to school and playschool last Monday morning.
|Ready for School.|
Knitting wise as I said this week its been pretty slow. It took a whole week to knit this one little dishcloth and it wasn’t even a difficult pattern lol.
I did also manage to get the Owlie Sack finished and its looking pretty cute I must say!
Thank you all for your lovely comments last week, they were lovely to read and I’m so glad some of you liked the no captcha, I know I can’t read them, the spam is lessening and I may play around with blocking anonymous on the blog and see if that helps then I can go back to my original settings which I was pleased with before all this spam! Well here’s hoping! I am hoping to get round to you all this week, I missed seeing what everyone was up to last week so now I need to play catch up.
This is how the list looks now.
