It’s the small things…

Since coming back from our tour of Ireland (which I still need to blog about) I have been busy with the small things in life and some big things too. I don’t seem to have much time to blog and now we are in the middle of a heat wave a rarity for the UK and somewhat of a miracle for Scotland I have been mainly spending my evenings outside.

I’ve taken to writing this post outside on my iPhone for uploading later.
So how have I been spending my time? Not by crocheting the many things I have on my list of want to do, that’s for sure! I did post before my aim was to do them when we were away but that didn’t happen.

There has been some me time over coffee.


And bright pink nails

I have been reading quite a bit too, something I go through phases of and can read loads for a while then I don’t pick up a book at all.

My favourite one so far has been The fault in our stars by John Green. It took me a little while to get into it but once I did I was so invested in what happened. Enough to have to make my excuses to head upstairs to finish it due to the many tears. I suggest everyone reads it.

My weekends have also been full, a few weekends ago it was one of my friends at work weddings and it was quite far away so we made an overnight of it which was lovely. Everything went really well and the sun shone.

Then the weekend just past I flew back to Ireland to surprise my Dad for his 65th birthday/retirement. It was lovely to get home without him knowing I was coming and even better to spend a weekend with my family just chilling out.

And I’ve been spending quality time with my hubby and doggy. I’ve been loving it and it’s been so nice to be together. His work has been stressful recently so it’s been good for us to switch of from the world and just be together.

I will hopefully have some crafty stuff I will be doing in the next few weeks that I hope will make the way to gracing these lovely pages and of course I really need to start (and finish) a crochet project before my new niece or nephew appears in August.
