* 33 *

Well. we're halfway through the Half Term holidays - sort of, and so far we've done next to nothing due to the weather being so cold and wet . We've had more black cloud than blue and as I write this our plans for a walk have been scuppered due to the fact that it's started raining - again.

On one of the rare blue cloud days we did manage a walk or should I say climb up a hill ,

where we admired the views,

found teeny tiny fungi

and I marvelled at how green the moss was.

I've also found my knitting mojo so have been ploughing on with some long overdue orders. Another Pip is on its way to the USA, I've got half a teacosy finished and have started a squishy puppy/bunny - haven't decided which one it will turn out to be yet and some little Easter bunnies too.

I've also managed to finish the February Bunty KAL over on Ravelry .... this month I made a Snowdrop bunny .

Oh, and Milo has lost a third tooth so his books have been ordered from Amazon . We were going to go to the bookshop for them but you save over £1 a book on Amazon so with the money he saved he got another book. I hastened to add that not all the money was from the tooth fairy but his savings and pocket money from Grandparents.

Now we're off to take Hub to work as he's on lates and then we're going to do a bit of baking courtesy of a Nigella book borrowed from the library.

Sorry you've had such miserable weather. It's been the opposite here... too hot to go outside.... no rain or cold though... just way too hot!

Rain, rain, rain here today too.
Like your knits.

Thanks goodness for those rare cool days. I suspect there will be a lot of FUN walks this spring, with even more reason to go walking. I love your little knitted items -- they're always so cute!

We've had rubbish weather this week, although it was sunny for a while today! Love your knitting! Great, fresh pic of moss too!

Love all your pics :) And your bunny and mouse are so cute. I always want to knit some when I see them, but then I just knit a 'wrap me up puppy' and I realize I don't really like knitting toys!

Nasty weather here too! Oh hurry up Spring. Great photo's Lisa. That sky is amazing. Love that little mouse, he is so darn cute.

Miserable weather - yep! A northern blog eh? Me too. I LOVE the rabbit knitted toy - do you sell them? I would love to buy one. Denise xx
