Being a bit of a 'knit' ...
I really fancied doing some knitting and have the perfect excuse for getting the needles out - baby Rosie! I know that hand knitted cardigans may not be the most trendy of clothes nowadays but I managed to convince Rachel that it may be useful to have one in the changing bag in case they are out without coats in the warmer months and it suddenly turned chilly! The best thing about knitting something for a 4 month old? There are so few stitches to work on so it grows really quickly. It's a really good way to relax.
I finished my jigsaw -
I loved having it set out on the table so I could just add a piece here and there every time I walked past. Who am I kidding? One piece every now and then? Half an hour at a time is more truthful.
Starting the week with a very clean and tidy house, one of the bonuses of having people over on a Saturday night is that I feel the need to thoroughly clean every room they may see and then all the housework is over and done with for a while.
Also, one of the things about dear Facebook doing those '6 years ago today ...' things at the start of each day is that I have noticed that in many of these 'old' photos I'm wearing clothes that I still wear today. I have clearly had my money's worth out of some of my dresses! A couple of weeks ago I went through my clothes and donated quite a bit in a couple of charity bags. But we are off to Portugal in a few weeks time and I've now realised that my spring cleaning blitz has left quite a few gaps in my wardrobe once the weather gets nicer. What a dilemma eh? The perfect excuse for some retail therapy 😉
