Ok it’s not Spring yet!

Hopes of a warm weekend dashed again, snow and wind strike again. No choice but search the cupboards for a bag of strong flour and some yeast – sure I have some somewhere. After a short search yep got all the ingredients to make Paul Hollywood”s Bloomer. Not convinced the yeast is at it’s best still 6 hours later I have a loaf, house smells great and the anticipation is building. 

Lookimg outside only thing moving is snow not seen a car or tractor for about 2 days and no Sainsburys delivery so it’s freezer pot luck with a slice of homemade bread. TV and knitting with long fire the day isn’t so bad after all – but roll on sunshine. Image


Perfect Sunday?

Despite the cold and gloomy weather the daffs are peeking out and the snowdrops are going strong, after an early start to watch the first GP pf the season a brilliant race with the perfect win for Kimi (the last few laps watched through my fingers!) we enjoyed a relaxed breakfast treat of croissants. Speed cleaning of the downstairs done sitting in front off a roaring log fire with my new knitting mag and a cuppa – Sunday heaven!Image

Finished project!

Finished project!

imageAlways love finishing a project and my Frances cardigan has kept me engrossed through the winter evenings. I love the vintage style from Susan Crawford and the yarn is wonderful – the colours are exactly right for the vintage design and so soft. The yarn is Excelana by John Arbon and I will knit more of it.

Despite starting the week thinking spring had sprung the photos of my cardigan taken today are out in cold winds and snow, will the daffs ever have enough sunshine to open.
