A quick catch up.

I received this lovely parcel from Lace at the SCC for the February hearts and flowers swap. It all came wrapped up in a sweet whicker basket.

Thankyou Lace for my lovely swap goodies and I'm sorry it's taken so long for me to post about them.


I've received this award from the lovely Bekimarie - The ramblings of an everyday mummy and from the lovely Lisa - Vintage girl Thankyou both I know I'm meant to pass this on to 7 blogs but I think most have had it if you haven't feel free to help yourself.

I also had this one from the lovely and very talented Kitty - Kitty's bloggy bits Thankyou Kitty I will copy you and pass this on to all who commented on my last post.

I've had quite a bad week - being awake half the night, feeling miserable etc. Yesterday whilst sitting on Summerleaze beach in Bude the penny dropped, the reason for for all of this is Mothers day it plays on my subconscious. The same happens on what would have been my mum's birthday and the time of her death/funeral. Ridiculous really but once the day has passed I'm fine again! So make sure you look after your mums today and enjoy! I'll just add a little rant here I was really shocked yesterday on the beach it was absolutely filthy, strewn with beer bottles and cans. Obviously the beach cleaners don't start until Easter and we've had this unseasonal weather so the kids have been on the beach. I know Tara has been to Polzeath after work everyday, she finishes at 2.30 but I'd wring her neck if she was dumping litter on the beach, they should know better!

Now to end on a happy note when your feeling miserable a little foray at Amazon helps! Loving the 'Sewing in no Time' book great things to make in there and '100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet' has what I'd call easy to crochet things. I've made a intermediate lily of the valley and an advanced pansy both were really easy. There's butterflies, a ladybird, vegetables, leaves and flowers, 40 knitted and 60 crochet. I may even dust off my knitting needles if I can find them!
Well the sun's out again I'm going to open some pressies and then pop to Eden to see what bulbs are up and then over to Par to feed the swans and walk on the beach, have a great day.

Good morning Yvonne glad it's not just me who's awake this early on Sunday! Hopefully it's sunny in your land today to make you feel cheery.
I would be on the beach in this weather too!
Love Clare

Hope you have a lovely day despite the mixed feelings, I know I will feel the same about Father's Day in a few months too.

Hugs, Mel xxx

Hope you have a good day - try to remember the good times over the sad x. I borrowed the Sewing in No Time book from the library and also think it's very good

Duck pond is pond is one of our favourite places to go with Sophie's bike but today we decided to cycle from Wadebridge to Padstow instead. Sophie managed it too. Lovely parcel, and I will have to take a look at the book. i love flowers but not great at knittingor crochet.

You're very welcome to the award - it's much deserved. You always leave such nice comments.

I totally understand your transitory depression around mother's day. I'm the same on father's day (which is near my dad's birthday). It's difficult, isn't it? :-(

After borrowing the Gentle Art of Domesticity from the library I couldn't resist buying myself a copy, it's a lovely book isn't it.
