Simple Joy

I'm amazed how little time I've had this past week!! I've barely had time to turn the computer on, let alone blog or read/comment on everyone else's blogs. Where does all the time go? Partially to being sick I spose. And partially to catching up on a serious backlog of housework. And a big part to starting an exhausting new job!! (and very little to knitting unfortunately!) Anyway... here I am now. Procrastinating about cleaning the bathroom... feeling like I really should be in bed. But here are some long awaited (well for me anyway) pics of my finished objects.
Mum looking lovely in her shrug... which she LOVES!! (thanx for loving it mum!)

And Dad's beanie and with the last minute card I made for him. In the end I think the beanie was a bit too short. There's probably something to be said for following a pattern...

Thanks to everyone for all your kind words! This week is going really well. The kids are really fun (except when they're being little monsters)! And some moments are just magic... like when a helicopter flies over the yard, and the sheer joy they derive from that... I can't help wondering if the pilot realises quite how much joy she is causing??
And today while we enjoyed the gorgeous sunshine, we went blossom-spotting in the yard, and talked about spring and sang a spring song. Not a bad way to spend your afternoon really...

The shrug turned out beautifully - well done! Little wonder your Mum loves it. Like the colour changes in the hat, too.

Lovely work on the shrug.

Most helecopters fly low enough to see what's happening on the ground. If your little ones are dashing about in excitement, waving, they know. If you've had more than one trip over the house, it's possible they're doing flyovers on purpose. Everybody loves a waving kid, now, don't they?

It's great to connect to the childlike wonder and joy in the world - everything's new to them!

The shrug is just beautiful :)

Neet, the shrug looks amazing and your mum is beautiful! Well done, you!
