I love teaching people to crochet. The absolute joy when someone finally “gets it”, and then gets as addicted as I am just can’t be matched. I have huge news, I taught the pink one to crochet this week! She’s still only 6, and a big challenge is that she’s left handed, and me… Read More Teaching crochet…..to the kids
I’m a bit late posting this, the actual day was back in November but hey……. For Children in Need this year our school had the theme of Superheros.

The pink one is obsessed with unicorns. Everything has to about unicorns. T-shirts, toys you name it!

Wow – what a whirlwind few days! Blog land is keeping me very busy (not what I’d planned for at the beginning of the 6 week school holidays).

I wasn’t going to write anything today – but it’s been such an extraordinary day I can’t resist. I woke up this morning and carried out my usual task of walking the dogs at 6am. Another car was parked where I normally park in the completely empty car park, but I didn’t really think anything… Read More A Parallel Universe?
Just around the corner from where I live, and I kind of do mean just around the corner, I could walk there in maybe 30 minutes, drive there in 10, there is the most amazing field I have ever set eyes on in my life. Every year in June and July, we are very lucky… Read More A very purple field
