Confused? Welcome to my world. I seem to have mislaid a day this week. On Monday I spent the day finishing off de-cluttering our bedroom and giving it a deep clean, from top to bottom (I've never hoovered a ceiling before!). I am so pleased with myself, now it's done. It's quickly become my favourite … Continue reading If It’s Wednesday, It Must Be Thursday
I had to go to the sorting office to pick up another parcel today. Although it was still early, the day was already hot and on the way back I decided to cut through the old market hall, somewhere I hadn't been before. If nothing else, I would be out of the sun for a … Continue reading Down The Rabbithole

Isn't it beautiful? I was looking on Etsy for a little project bag and fell in love with this one as soon as I saw it. This was made by PapaDon, who has some gorgeous bags in his Etsy shop. I've always had a weakness for turquoise and orange and the design looks like knitting … Continue reading More Goodies
The needle case I'd ordered off Etsy arrived yesterday, and I'm thrilled with it. I love the chickens and I love the bright yellow background. I smile every time I look at it. I have just spent a happy hour rummaging through my old knitting basket and sorting all my needles according to size. I … Continue reading Chickens!
The really nice thing about de-cluttering is that you can buy new clutter! Well, no, not really. I have been thinking about our windowsills though. We live in a very old house. Over 400 years ago it was Bramley Hall and in the early 1900s it was a bit of a ruin until it was … Continue reading Bits & Pieces
I've always wanted to make an afghan and Ewan's seen me looking at stitch patterns and asked for one for his room. I've spent the last week devouring patterns and designs on Pinterest and Ravelry. The possibilities are endless and I love to go on Ravelry, lookup a pattern and then see the associated projects; … Continue reading I Think It Might Be Contagious
No, not him. Although it is like Christmas round here. The postman's been and brought these. Aren't they gorgeous? I was in dire need of the row markers as I've started knitting a scarf for Jamie and its knitted in the round. Until these arrived I'd been using a broken zip! This will … Continue reading He’s Been!
Oh dear, I started this blog with the best of intentions and it all went to hell in a hand basket as my friend, Lee would say. My only (small) consolation is that she's on the same road to hell that I am, at least as far as her blog's concerned. I hope that this … Continue reading Mea Culpa
