Normal posting...

... will resume shortly!!! Sorry about this little absence, but you know how it is, life just gets in the way!! Well actually on this occasion, you can blame my mum really! She's been staying over for the last week or so and I just haven't had the time to post as a result. Or to be more exact, I haven't had the time to download photos on the main computer, which just happens to be in the guest bedroom/ computer room/ craft room/ library (who hasn't dreamt of having a room used solely as a library?!)/ dump basically. So there. But guess what, I have LOADS to tell you about. I've been keeping those little fingers of mine rather busy, with some bits and pieces of knitting and of course some crochet. I started my blanket!! Guess I've got to give it a name so that you know what I'm talking about when I start rambling on about it. Since it's being made with Welsh wool, any ideas? Maybe I could just call it my welsh blanket ;-)

Anyway, got quite a bit of work to get on with so must dash!! Hope you've all had a nice week so far xx

Hope you're having great fun with your mum.

How about 'Go Caerphilly' as a name for your Welsh blanket (as in go carefully).

How do Welsh hedgehogs make love? Caerphilly. Hee Hee.

Haha!! I love a joke first thing in the morning. Good one Gill.

Exciting news about the blanket, looking forward to seeing the finished result!

And hell YES I've always dreamed about having a library!

I was going to suggest names like Megan, Bronwyn or Myffanwy, but I actually think that Go Caerphilly is much more interesting (and it made me laugh too!)

I blame my mother for everything too!! Just catching up and loving your holiday photos - they went to the Brecon Beacons on "Countryfile" on Sunday - and I was looking for you!!. xxxx

It is nice to have a break sometimes! I loved your comment about spain - really interesting insight. We noticed lots of kids around 8pm playing in the street when we were in Zamora and my sister said that their parents were probably at home or in bars - it is so safe to leave them to play... My sister is off to San Sebastian at some point herself too - I hear it is very beautiful. I'll definitely share lots on Barcelona - don't worry! I wonder what our connection is to Sophie...small world eh?! Sophie does know lots of very interesting people though...she seems to attract talented sorts wherever she goes! xxx

My husband always says, "If it's not one thing, it's your Mother," which I love. Haha. Anyway, we will be here awaiting your blogging return!

I have one of those rooms... which is why I am typing in the dark (so I can ignore the state of it!)
