the weekend in insta-snaps

It always zooms past, the weekend. Before we know it its Monday again and the working week begins. A torrent of busy days, early starts and zooming around waiting for the delight of the next weekend to begin...

The Sock Project – Part 2

Here is a little update on the sock project. Sock one, done. 

Sock 2 a work in progress. I’m making these in snatched moments, so they are taking a rather a long time, and cannot tell you how excited I was about turning the heel on my first ever sock. I found this really simple free sock pattern here. It is very easy to understand and I am really pleased with the results. I think I may have found my new favourite thing. I’m going to make some for the children next, but I must hurry before the weather warms up.

Happy Days xx

Happy Tuesday! What a lovely sunshiney start to the week here in Cornwall.

Saturday was a very wet and windy day on the farm, so we tucked ourselves away and baked (feta, courgette and mint cake recipe to follow), and had lovely friends over for a children’s supper. Sunday was, in contrast, so very gloriously warm and sunny. There are some newly arrived calves (aka “moos”/ baby cows, depending on whether you are 2 or 3), which we visited (there are 21 of them – counted carefully by Edie, skipping the numbers 13 and 15). We wandered around and rescued the daffodils that had been snapped of in the wind and the house is filled with spring.

A mountain of washing was folded and put away and some terribly organised weekly/meal planning went on, finished off with a lovely roast.

Happy days indeed xx
