Monday, August 18


Well hello there how have you been?  So here we are it's Monday again and the week that was has flown by.  We finally saw some rain here at the beginning and end of the week which was welcome I have to say.  A little more rain would be good just to really green up the lawn but the water tank is full again so the garden will continue to get plenty of watering so I am very grateful.  I have been keeping the water up to the garden so we have lots of lovely herbs, lettuce, some peas, carrots, spinach, broccoli and cherry tomatoes to go and pick.  My Miss 14 will soon be 15 so I've been organised and made her a card now I just need to buy a gift, the hardest part for this age group.  My little one has taken a leaf out of her Mum's book and has been knitting up a storm or should I say a scarf for her cousin who turns 2 soon, so cute. I finally finished the crochet blanket for our bed!!!! After 3 years it is complete and just in time to use before things warm up.  And August yes I did treat myself, a new lens to use.  I  now have all the lenses I need to start taking photos, now I need to decide on a business name, oh and take the leap and photograph people I'm getting there.....

Happy Monday my friends.
Linking up with Ginny today for her yarn along.


  1. Gorgeous shots! The blanket looks beautiful on the bed. What calendar is that Catherine? I love it. Hope you have a happy week. xo

  2. Happy Monday, the colours in the blanket work so well. Great photo's.

  3. How lovely to have produce right outside your own backdoor. Fresh is always better. So sweet to see your youngest knitting. I tried many years ago but it just didn't make any sense to me at all. Good luck with your photography. Best wishes, Tammy

  4. I was just thinking of you last night and hoped all was well....but I see you have been busy with some very lovely things. That blanket is so so lovely and how exciting having a new lens......just go for it you are very talented and will co very well. Just have confidence . Xxx

  5. I love the colours in your blanket. I'm a big fan of blue, particularly mixed with these muted tones. Once again I love your simplicity when making cards. A lovely mix of colour and that little bit of bling! I hope this week is going well for you all,
