solitude, planting and my new bag

Both children went to preschool for 3 hours this morning. I came back from dropping them off and had the house to myself. It was heaven; 3 hours was enough though.

I planted out my sweetcorn and red kale. My veg patch is beginning to look nice and full.

I finished the bag I started yesterday and it looks fantastic. I am making another for a friend.

creating, supper for 1, sunshine

I am in the middle of making a cloth bag. If I can slow down enough to read the instructions properly rather than charging in like my usual bull in a china shop will be lovely!

R is out late tonight with work. While I miss him, the opportunity to work on my sewing and also not to have to think about what he might want to eat is being relished.

It poured with rain all morning and we were cooped up like hens. As soon as I saw a break in the clouds we tore outside and made the most of half an hours sunshine.

break, back home and spinach

It has been a long time since I last posted. I got fed up - but found I have missed doing my little blog, so am calling the last month my 'break'.

We have just returned from a lovely holiday but how fantastic to be home.

Our crop of spinach is ready. It is delicious and I loved paying a visit to a friend with a huge bag of it as a gift for her.
