My sister is cranky with me that I have been neglecting this space yet again.Please forgive me.I have been so busy leaving the Uk,getting settled again being back home and all the chaos we had along the way.But thats boring.So...
Its my birthday!! Although if we're being technical-until 5.20pm I am no older.Oh who cares about being technical right?!
The boys thought this entitled them to stay home and celebrate all day with their mummy.No my darlings.Mummy is going out to lunch! Perhaps it was a ploy?? I like to think not and that if I had caved we would have spent the day making cake and doing silly drawings.
The boys have given me the new compilation of Elizabeth Davids Table.I adore her.I have read her books cover to cover over the years and it is lovely to have a large hardcover with photos rather than the flimsy well thumbed paperbacks of old.A treat indeed.There is a delicious looking photograph of some leeks in there that I intend to feast on before too long.
Also filling my thoughts at the moment is the bump my sister is carrying around.We are soooooooo excited and I will be an aunt for the first time.The boys say that they will go back to London in time for the baby so they can play with it.I have explained they will need to wait a while!
So the bump has been named "Sprout" for now and I have been searching indecisively for English summer weight baby knit patterns.I would love any suggestions from you.All I do on Ravelry is fill my basket and add to faves.Then I cant decide.Its a veritable candy store and I have not clicked away since our arrival in the Uk back in November and my fingers are getting twitchy.Its time people.
I am going to leave you with some photographs that arrived in my inbox the other day.The mum is from Helsinki and found the perfect vehicle for her creativity during maternity leave.You can see more and read about the project here.Very imaginative and utterly gorgeous.I wonder what happens when she wakes up.......
So I am thinking you have a huge smile on your face right now.Looking at these how could you not : )
Have a wonderful day!!
