Here we are again, Monday! how does it come round so fast? Its just not fair!
Ive had such a lovely weekend that I just didn't want it to end. So what have I been up to? A lovely visit to york with the girls & a nice relaxing Sunday.
Our trip to York was just a lovely day, the weather turned out far better than expected, warm and sunny with a little bit of a cool breeze. We enjoyed a visit to Dutton's for Buttons in which little lady started her very own button collection and Mrs ID and I added to our Brigantia Yarn collection ( I say collection because neither of us needed any). Who knew Dutton's for Buttons would have yarn! We did a little charity shop shopping in which little lady found an utter bargain. Mouse trap for £3.00. A quick pit stop for Tea and then on to the Disney store where Mrs ID treated little lady to a lovely straw hat and we ended our trip to your with a visit to a lovely little quirky yarn shop on the shambles called Ramshambles where I purchased some fibre and some amazing little needle stoppers that look like jelly babies.
|Such a quirky little shop.|

Then of course Saturday evening I sat and crocheted the baby blanket that I am working on and of course had a glass of wine.
Sunday well Sunday was quite literally a wash out with rain on and off all day which most definitely required indoors activities such as baking, game playing and of course knitting.

Oh they did!
I had some very ripe bananas that were ready for the bin but I hate waste so I made a batch of Banana and white chocolate brownies. They didn't make it to the end of the day!
I did a little crochet but I was conscious that I have not picked up the socks I am knitting in a while so I worked on them for a little while (getting myself all confused with the pattern and dropping stitches all over the place) . As my knee was very swollen from yesterdays walking I put my feet up and had a lovely relaxing day. We was very pleased for the previous days bargain of Mouse trap which Mr. M set up and then set to playing with the little lady. She is really chuffed with her new game & its so nice to see her play a board game rather than sat on the iPad or playing games on the DS.
So the weekend has whizzed by in a flash and here I am on Sunday night thinking about the busy week I have ahead of me but looking forward to lots of crafting, family & friends.
For this weekend I thank my lovely little lady who even though she is only 7 seemed so grown up on Saturday, Mrs. ID for being an amazing friend and making our Saturday such a special day and of course MR. M for letting me put my feet up and rest my Knee. Thank you.
I will be back later in the week with my WIP's and hopefully (I can dream) an FO.
