At last Spring is here, well meteorlogically speaking at least, even though it has been freezing this last few days at last the mornings are lighter even if it is still dark by the time I arrive home.
I am all at sixes and sevens at the moment. Life work balance is proving to be a bit of a challenge and sometimes I have to put things aside and the moment it appears to be my blog.
February saw a month of birthdays with middle son turning 25 and daughter 22 and our little Monty turned 8. It was also a month where I completed two more snuggle blankets for colleagues at work who are about to go on maternity leave to have babies in April/May.More stitches have gone into The Earth Goddess cross stitch. She is coming a long well but I have to be very strict with myself and at least get a couple of hours stitching in on a Sunday afternoon. I intend to do a post with photographs of her journey so far when there is a bit more to show. I have continued reading the second novel of Terry Pratchett's Discworld and I have this morning downloaded number 3 in readiness for when I have completed my current book. My favourite read of February was Amy Snow by Tracy Rees and I am in the midst of writing a blog post about all the books I read over the last month.
We don't go big on Valentines these days so it was a lovely surprise when I came home to a gorgeous bouquet of red roses 16 in all representing one for each year we have been together, so there is an old romantic still lurking somewhere in D after all. We had a nice meal topped off with white and dark chocolate mousse desert made from a Raymand Blanc recipe which I found on the internet. The diet definitely went south that day.
I am planning a few days R & R over the Easter break so I am hoping that will give me more of an opportunity for writing blog posts in a more timely fashion.
Hope March is treating you well so far and for all the mothers in the UK have a wonderful Mothers Day this Sunday.
