I Do Like To Be Beside The Sea

I'm very lucky to live just a few miles from the coast, and met my parents for a fish and chip dinner this evening on Poole Quay (we can highly recommend Harlees). It was lush sitting on the quay, watching the boats, and eating some really yummy food!

Now, this isn't a completely random post. Sitting by the sea reminded me of a pattern that I really want to make, from Simply Crochet's issue 20 - Emma Varnam's beach hut doorstep.

It's such a cute pattern and I really want to make one for our upstairs bedroom, at some point (I'm dying to go with a nautical theme up there, when we get a chance to decorate) so this would fit in so perfectly! It's definitely one of my favourite patterns to have stumbled upon in recent times! Can't wait to make one for myself.

Little Mouse

We have a mouse living under one of our garden steps at the moment, and last weekend I managed to film him going in and out, taking leaves to make a nest! I'll try and get the video uploaded to my Facebook Page, so you can see, but it's so cute. So keeping to the mousey theme...

Still Super Busy

I seriously need to get my blogging motivation back on track!

Since moving in with Dave, I've mostly been settling into my new home and helping with decorating etc. I've also been working all over the place, including a week away on the Isle of Wight, so it's been hard to find time to sit down a blog. However, I have recently had a chance to sit down in the evenings and complete some more squares for Dave's blanket, which is putting me back on track again. I need to have another count up at some point, but looking at my box of unattached squares, it will be a little while before I get round to attaching more rows, due to the fact that I've gone made making light blue squares, and didn't realise that I had no red, orange or yellow haha! My bad. So I am now back on the yellow squares, working towards my next goal of getting more attached - woohoo!

Also, since my last post, I have been away to Cornwall for a weekend, with friends. It was great fun and we had a really nice time - we decided to visit the Eden Project, which was pricey but still a lovely place to go.

So onwards and upwards - tomorrow there will be a Treasury post, I promise. I need to get back into the swing of things, because I do miss sharing with you all!
