It's been relentless. Mild, wet and windy. Flowers don't know what the season is and the birds look at each other thinking "do we start building or what?". For those who follow me on Instagram, you will have seen this capture of a poppy in our back garden that is about to bloom! It's January! But, thinking POSITIVE, how lovely to see some colour out there.
Also, with the weather being like a wet blanket and embracing my free time at the moment (I won't be back at work full time until February), I've picked up my crochet hook once more and started crafting my way through Lucy's granny stripe blanket but with my favourite colour combo of
Now, also there has been a few changes. For some time I have looked at my little area of blog space and wanted to change things but ended up just going back to how it was. With my organised positive attitude that I am still embracing, I took advantage of keeping my feet up (after all Christmas and New Year is now over and everything is back to normal), and acted on a Tweet that I saw from a Blogger design website. Boutique Website Design showed one template called Easy Living and I had the Eureka moment! This was what I was looking for and luckily it was a Blogger template. I've got to say that the instructions were spot on and just what a novice such as me could understand. And so, what do you think? There is still enough familiarity here but I love the font and I personally feel a little more organised and refreshed for 2016.
Today I didn't sit as much as the crutches had to come out as school shoes needed to be bought and last minute panic items that Miss Teen just simply couldn't go out and get during the two weeks holiday! Teenagers - I despair! The problem was the looks I got in the shoe shops from my gorgeous hospital supplied sandals, how the shop assistants wanted to get their hands on me! Soon my dears... soon! It's been almost four weeks and can say that the pain has subsided but they are uncomfortable if I am on them too long. Oh the swelling if I over do it!! Aren't they fabulous?!!
With the quiet days ahead with my two back into their routines, I can now go back through my camera card and relive some trips before Christmas. Can't wait to put the posts together and then I will be back on track instead of just rambling on in my stir crazy mind.
Have a wonderful week and for those who are having to deal with this awful rain and flooding, my heart sincerely goes out to you.
