We have just come back from a week in my parents house… they went to visit my sister in Germany, we moved in 🙂
It was such a wonderful week, but it went in a flash; I didn’t get to do all those things that I had hoped to do, didn’t visit all the people I thought I would… in truth, I probably would have needed a month to do and see everyone and thing I had planned in my head…
We spent lots of time outside, the small ones exploring my parents beautiful garden; Fluffy, the cat trying to send me over the edge into crazy-land (everytime I left the house, she would launch at my leg, or lie down under my feet to trip me up. My language was shocking, but she continued to laugh at me)
I found some fantastic finds… bird skeletons, old pieces of pottery, interesting leaves, snail shells and feathers… Inspiring!
We ate royally. And ate. And ate. Lunches, dinners, parties. My boys ate their bodyweight in Chinese food. Meals will be very boring this week!
Lots and lots of drawing was done; I bought these beautiful wax crayons from here, and brought a large bag of drawings, love letters and about a million tractor and fire engine pictures home…
In between the talking and eating, I crocheted. Nearly finished this blanket: Yay! I’ll hopefully be able to show you pictures very soon (when I have finished cleaning my own house…)
Sounds like heaven, amazing what a change of scene can do
Yes, certainly recharges the batteries 🙂
What a wonderful week! x
I concur, it went way too quick….. Next time I will do the visiting for the month 😉 beautiful photos xxxxxxxxx
Looking forward to it!!!
Gorgeous! Love the pic of your little one amongst the branches, happy to be one with nature 🙂
how lovely Emily, a nice autumnal break, sweet.
Sounds lovely. Beautiful pictures.
Except for bird skeletons….lovely!!!!! I started crochet 3 years ago and managed the very basic square, I think I made 3 of them and they were just one colour, yours look amazing.
Sounds like you had a great holiday! Can I ask you about the green vest your boy is wearing in the first picture? Did you knit it yourself and if yes where can I get the pattern? I’m looking for one exactly like this one to make for the winter. xx Love Halina
Halina, I didn’t, a friend of mine knit it, and it has been worn and worn and worn, such a super vest! In fact, I’d love to learn to knit, if only to make these! My friend got the pattern from Soulemama (pretty sure it is free on there) x
