We don't tend to do anything on Valentine's Day itself but on Saturday we're actually going out together (!) to a very cosy pub near us for a drink and a longed-for natter with each other which I'm really looking forward too. Hasn't it been a glorious week so far? And it's half-term here so the sunshine has really made life lots of fun. The boys have been up to the Lancashire coast with daddy and Grandma to see the container ship that ran aground near where daddy grew-up. B is completely thrilled by it and they even had an afternoon playing on the sands - in February! Do you know, there is a wicked part of me that's quite ok with global warming (ok, not really!).
We've been out in the garden, visited the museum and made treasure boxes and had friends to play. Back at work today but its been a smashing week.
Little bit short of pics this week as my camera batteries have given up the ghost and I am rubbish and not bought rechargeable ones or replacements yet. Will do soon because this sunny week has brought Spring to No.25 and the winter bits and bobs will be put away at the weekend and floral china and pretty fabrics are coming out! Because Easter is so early I really want to get some use out of my spring curtains so I'll be back soon with some new corners of my home.
I'm aiming to finish my first embroidery project tomorrow and, if we get chance, I'm going fabric hunting for the vintage sofa which I'm afraid hasn't been touched yet. Life's been a bit busy and I've not had chance to contct the upholseter (did I explain mum and dad have very kindly offered to have it re-covered for us in lieu of last year's Christmas present - doors for the old house we never had.)
Well, the sap is rising and I've got an urge to welcome spring which always makes me crack on with things - a bit like coming out of hibernation. Hopefully, new things will be on show here very soon!
Have a lovely weekend and hope the sun keeps shining with you.x
