Well Hello!

After a week of running back and forth from home to hospital we are now all at home together again and it feels good. DH came home on Saturday afternoon and is recovering nicely. Every day brings us another 'normality'. Last night it was DH being able to move onto his side instead of lying on his back only and today we managed to get out for a cup of tea and slice of cake at our local garden centre.

One thing about spending long hours visiting at the hospital was that I was able to get allot of knitting done. I finished my Remembering Sunny Days Socks using the Hermione's Everyday Sock pattern. I absolutely love this colourway, sadly when I went to see if I could buy another ball of this yarn from Wool Warehouse not only was it all sold out but I see that Cascade has also discontinued it :( A couple more pairs are called for as my current ones have given such good service over the past 5 years and are looking rather stretched. Of course there is no way I'm throwing them out - they will have to fall to bits before that happens! but a bit of sock restocking has to happen :) I'm still in the process of deciding which pattern to tackle next.

July brought about a Blue Moon - did you catch it? If you don't know what a Blue Moon is it is when a full moon occurs twice in one month. I'm sure you can guess that this does not happen often - once every 3 years if I'm not mistaken.

Shop News:

My daughter has been very busy making more Polymer Clay paperclips for our Etsy Shop. I just love the detail in her work. I've fallen in love with every single set and of course want to keep them all ;) but - no - into the shop they must go.

Over the past rather hectic week I have really enjoyed the short intervals of time that I have had to sit in my conservatory. My feeder has been frequented by many feathered ....

Ahem! - and some furry friends.

My absolute favourite feathered character has been this little fellow...

he is the tattiest little blackbird I have ever seen but he merrily hops about gathering worms. He's ever so busy and very focused on his task. I just adore him!

I've also really felt allot of peace as I gaze across the fields from my conservatory. The view is just amazing - I am going to miss it. I love seeing our little churches steeple peeking through the tops of the trees in the distance.

*sigh* Life is lovely :).

Anyhoo - time to wrap up this little catch up post. Hope you are all having a lovely week. Will pop back very soon.
