Our weekend…..

Posted on

We’ve had quite a busy weekend so far. Yesterday morning I went out for a lovely run in the sunshine, I ran just over 5 miles and I was hoping to go further only the soles of my feet were begining to blister whilst I get used to this ‘barefoot’ running.

The rest of our Saturday included the usual daily chores, washing, cooking, hoovering, I cut my husbands hair, a trip to the shops and I made a braised lamb shank for Saturday night’s dinner. Unfortunately I picked up the saucepan after it had been in the oven for 3 hours, I did that last time too, I think I need to get a casserole dish instead as dinner didn’t taste so good with a hand so sore!

Little ‘T’ has been really suffering with her big teeth coming in these last few days so it’s been a bit harder to keep her entertained, but a walk through some lovely gardens and a picnic helped to cheer her up. She loved leading the way through the narrow paths, sometimes stopping to smell a flower:

I’ve also made another felt tomato as it has been a little while since I made anything crafty!:

Don’t forget to head over to have a nosey at all of the otherĀ blogs at ‘handmade monday’!

Now we’re off to the beach this afternoon……….

  12. There’s something very appealing about fabric fruit (or is it a vegetable?) isn’t there, You’ll have to do a tutorial to show how you made it

    • I will do another post soon with some more I have planned to make – yes they are very appealing – the pattern is from a lovely Japanese book – a bit hard to work out as I don’t read Japanese but they’re pretty straightforward!
