Spontaneous Art

On Monday this week, I had the house to myself and started the day by catching up on a few blogs. One of the blog posts I read was this one of Lucy’s. It showed a print of a collage that she bought from Caroline Rose Art after suggesting the idea of using a caravan in one …

Day 4 – Lazy Day

On the last day of our mini holiday, we were all pretty tired so ended up having a bit more of a lie in than the other days. We didn’t have anything specific planned, so spent a while in the morning quietly sitting and reading/crocheting/knitting. After a while, we got a bit peckish but it …

Day 3 – The Posh Picnic

Heather had to work again on the Friday that we stayed with her, so we had the day to ourselves. We decided that we couldn’t go another day without washing our hair, so we had to face the shower-in-a-bucket experience due to the fact that their shower decided to break a few days before we …

Crocus Envy

Rachel’s home for Easter. She brought her crocuses with her. I now have such bad crocus envy that I am too distraught to write about Day 3 of our mini holiday, so it will have to wait until tomorrow. If you’ve ever had crocus envy, I’m sure you’ll understand.

Day 2 – A Trip to Ilkley

The second day into our mini holiday at Heather’s house she had off work, so we decided that we’d take a trip into the town of Ilkley. It was a really lovely, sunny day and we started our adventure by a bit of browsing in Create, a shop that sells all things yarn. After Heather …

I’ll Be Back

Dear Invisible Friends,       I’m going to visit my sister Heather for a few days and I don’t think I’ll be able to blog there. I’ll be back on Sunday to report on all the amazing things we did (like eat pizza). In the mean time, here’s a picture of a cute lamb …

Ta Dah!

In my house, there’s a dining room. And in this dining room, there’s a chest. And in this chest is any type of material in any colour you could imagine just waiting to be turned into something. Over the years, as we’ve dashed into haberdashery shops or traipsed through charity shops looking for costumes for …

Out and About

The weather was so nice today that we just had to go outside and do something. It feels great to go outside for no real reason because at uni, you have to actually be out to do something, you can’t just wonder around aimlessly! My mum and I decided that we’d take my grandma to …

Mothering Sunday

Today, as many of you will know, is Mother’s Day. Except we can’t call it that because my grandma insists it should always be Mothering Sunday. So today, in our house, it was Mothering Sunday. I went canoeing in the morning and came home to find my mum and Rachel baking away in the kitchen …
