Hope you had a super relaxy Easter.
On Saturday the blondies and I went for a lovely browse at our local library. If you don't utilise your library, do make the effort and go. After all, it's where a chunk of your council tax goes!
We came home with two of my Cath Kidston/Tesco shopping bags full of books and dvds! Gone are the days of a four book limit. Blondie son was thrilled with his Transformers dvd and pile of boyish fiction and Blondie daughter with her Jacqueline Wilsons and a fabulous 'Making Cards' book. (One of her cutie pie creations above!)
Bearing in mind my new crochet addiction, I naturally gravitated towards the hobbies section ...
Some of the books are very dated but there are some great projects which are timeless. I love this rug ...

Handsome hubby and I are big Ricky Gervais fans - I think The Office was nothing short of genius. However, in my opinion, The Invention Of Lying was a pile of ...
We couldn't watch it to the end, it was too completely and utterly banal. Have you ever seen it?
I'm still crocheting madly (when I close my eyes to go to sleep at night, I am actually visualising the stitches - is that normal?). Lissy Lou, you asked if crochet was difficult. I say 'yes' but if you stick with it and keep practising something does actually 'click' and patterns suddenly start making sense! Do try it.
I'm getting faster and neater but there remains heaps of room for improvement! I got so utterly bored of the raspberry pink wool I had that I ordered some more which, oh joy, came in today's post ...
Guess what I'm off to do now!
Hugs and hooks,
