little magic

Tuesday, 27 March 2012


Thats how I would describe today. Did nothing much (so far) and saw nothing much, tho did venture out to get some more electric and found another beautiful sunny day outside! Nothing quite like walking out the front door to be greeted with warmth and sunshine. Does brighten my day considerably.

Girls have been behaving, on the whole, and are now happily playing in their bedroom (so I assume as I cannot hear any screaming coming from that direction) or they are asleep, as they tend to do of an afternoon if they get bored! Which reminds me so much of myself when I was a lot younger!

I have not really had chance to sit down and do any crafting as yet today, tho did sneak in a few lines on my granny square turned stripey blanket I am working on for the girls, earlier while I was supposed to have been tidying their room! But I did do one thing I am proud of (stupidly proud I know), I actually PRE-WASHED some fabric before I use it tomorrow for a craft swap I am taking part in. I cant say too much regarding what I'm making in case my craftee reads my blog but I will post pics when the swap is all over and done with.

Boy do I waffle on! I'm going to close this for now so I can go check on my little darlings before starting the dinner. I may come back on in a few minutes to upload some pictures of my current crochet and knitting work in progresses!

But for now, keep smiling and enjoy this sunshine!

My New Blog Has Arrived!

This is about the third blog I've started recently, just don't seem to be able to keep up to date with them, so have made myself a promise that I will regularly update this one!
As you can see from the title its going to be a little bit of musings about my life in Devon, which I have decided is the best place I have lived in the UK! Especially on a day like today when there is glorious blue skies and warm sunshine.

Will be attending to my urgent need for a walk to the seafront later where I will take some more pictures of the beautiful scenery around here and of my beautiful girlies, Mia and Meg (and possibly of the DH depending on what mood he arrives home from work in!), some of which might end up here!

For now I am going to enjoy some me time and carry on with a crochet blanket I am making for niecey Y and might re-do the blanket I'm making for Y's big brother A. Pictures will follow of the progess I'm making on these two blankets and also the other few projects I've got going on!

Anyway for now I am going to relax so keep smiling & enjoy that sunshine!
