I made a point of going outside and seeking out the moon last night. Sometimes it's hard to tell if there is a teeny sliver missing from view but I'm pretty sure it was full. Please let it be full. You see, that way I can make some sort of sense of this last week which has, my friends, been an unrelenting catalogue of errors. Or, as I like to call it, a complete tits-up. (Apologies if that offends.)
It's a well known fact that the moon's cycle can affect people's biorhythms and, I've heard (and selectively remembered) that people with green eyes are particularly susceptible. Phew.
Either that or I've lost the plot.
I have broken things, spilt things, burnt things, lost things, forgotten things, hurt myself, hurt my car, made mistakes and put my foot in it. I've been ratty, stressed, impractical, clumsy and away with the fairies.
Then, just to round off the week perfectly, my car got a puncture on the way to school this morning.
Of course it did. Joy.
I think the only thing I've managed not to do this week is face-plant a pile of freshly-laid dog poo but, hey, there's still time.
As tempting as it might be to climb back into bed and hide before anything else goes wrong, I've decided to come and see you and jumble my way through an appropriately random blog post. :-)
Little affirmation on my bedroom mirror. Quite tempted to cross out 'great' and write 'trying' at the moment! ;-)
Oh how I love a sunny corner. Despite being lucky enough to have a little craft room, this is where I prefer to sit and crochet. It's always flooded with light. Our house is a peculiar upside-down, three-storey affair with the lounge being on the second floor, at the back. Just to the right of my armchair, as you look at this picture, there are double doors with a juliet balcony. From here I can see into about twenty gardens, including our own, and nose to my heart's content.
One of my favourite recent purchases. I simply cannot tell you how deliciously chocolatey it smells.
Another recent purchase, Cute and Easy Crocheted Baby Clothes by Nicki Trench. Rest assured, I don't have any announcements to make; I bought it almost purely for this pattern which has been on one of my Pinterest boards for an age. I absolutely adore it.
My accessories of choice this week. I won the scarf (Avoca Anthology) on Ebay a couple of weeks ago and just love the colour combination. I did a little happy dance when it arrived in the post, so delighted was I with its prettiness!
Ok. Another small matter to address - my promise of a crochet pattern to be released on Tuesday. It would seem that a public declaration on my blog acts only as a magnet for disaster and I am not going to be quite so contrived again. If I am, you have my permission to come and give me a slap. In future, I will only announce something once it's happened. Like now. Three days later than planned, I can confirm that I have now listed my Miss Read Mitts pattern in my Etsy shop.
I do hope you've all managed to drift happily through the week without adversity.
Have a glorious weekend and, if it involves fireworks, look after your little selves.
