last days of freedom

three of them start school next week, Sam starts school on Thursday, so we thought a day out on the beach at Lytham was in order, it was great to see them running around, they even went in the sea, for a change the tide was not 4 miles away.

Off to Fibrefest today, give him a real treat at diggerland whilst we are there before he starts.

see you there or tuesday when we get back

FibreFest and an award

so who is coming, I am really looking forward to this, it is not just a fibre festival there is a load of other events taking place at the same time, loads to do with the kids, swing boats and other rides, it looks like it will be a fun weekend.

The camping bit will be interesting, I am a seasoned camper, however I do appreciate the facilities at most campsites. This time we will have access to a tap and a toilet, and with my two darlings that can attract mud at 40 paces it is safe to say you could see them being bathed in a bucket outside the tent.

If you do make it please come and say hello.

CJ nominated me for this award for being a rocking girl blogger

eagle eyed

there was a falconry display on at the local park today, well it was a display of falcons rather than a falconry display. It was delivered by the most arrogant falconer I have ever come across, kids got fed up very quickly and the call of ice cream and slides were far more interesting. I got a few nice pics though, and a great ice-cream

wheres mine mum

I actually finished this on Wednesday so it only took me 6 days, he absolutely loves it and it has not left his side since, the only porblem being that Jack wants one now, I am not doing a star again but have started a pentagon for him, but it will take me longer than a week this time.

The club yarns went out today so depending on the back log should be with you very soon.

Sams star afgan

After seeing this fantastic star afgan by nevisknitter, my Sam decided he had to have one. I started on Thursday evening and I am about half way through it

He has chosen all the yarns himself, and he is choosing which order they go in.

Happy Birthday Sam

Today is my little boys 4th birthday, I am in denial that he is 4 already and even more so that he will be starting school in september.

My Hogwarts sock is coming along a treat, I am using the BFL Alpaca sock yarn and it is knitting beautifully. I would post a picture but then that would ruin the suprise.
