Casting on my handspun zwartble again! (last time hopefully)
After my mixed week post last week I thought I'd pop by to update, and the word that best describes this week is changing. The weather (I'll quietly say it) is changing for the better hopefully. Less daytime rain so more opportunities to get outside - hopefully we'll get some good planting time at the allotment this week. The pesky slugs have had a go at some of our Kales, luckily there are plenty of replacements in the greenhouse.
I am now pretty much recovered from the throat infection, but thanks to the antibiotics my digestive system isn't too happy so I'm looking into ways to improve that both short and long term. I don't like to take anti-b's and have fortunately not had any for many many years but for this I needed them, otherwise I may have been looking at taking some other meds to open the throat up as it was so swollen - and that's not nice stuff! So looking to change some things and maybe even get to grips with general health, weight and fitness.
Hawthorn blossoms - I wish you could smell it
Beautiful elderflower fragrance too
Looking forward to the bank holiday weekend, no particular plans ... just time together as a family and to recharge. There will be some knitting. I have been knitting myself a top finally with the grey zwartble x wool I spun up last year, it's coming on nicely and I love knitting with it. Here it is so far. If it stays dry I may even get some more fleece washed.
And finally, Imogen decided the other day she would like to wear some of her jewelry, what do you think - just right? too little? too much? She was happy, that's all that matters. I think you can tell she wasn't feeling too well in the photo, she looks tired.
Happy weekend to all, I'd love to hear what you have planned if anything?
