I know the lovely scented hyacinths are in full bloom and in fact are past their best, but they make my kitchen smell nice and they make me happy. I plan to plant some Tete a tete miniature daffodils when the hyacinths have finished.
Friday back to work for just one day, my normal working week starts again next Monday. I work full time so I will have to establish a blog routine within my normal routine.
Saturday a gloriously fine weather day! After all hands on deck to pack away Christmas we then piled into the car and headed off to Wales for the day. I am fortunate to live close enough to North Wales so I can nip in to take in the fantastic scenery. You will see this is a regular occurrence, this week Llangollen canal path was our destination and here are some photos (see I'm getting the hang of this now )
|An arty shot of a house right on the canal overlooking Llangollen, what a fab place to live!|
|I love the interesting shapes in this tree root, I can't imagine how much longer it will stay upright|
|Can you see the Troll face in the middle?|
Llangollen Castle City Bran
|I love love love the classic canal art|
|This boat was named Jamming - reggae inspired|
One thing I forgot to mention is when we go out on our jolly weekend jaunts himself will drive the car. I can drive its just that its his baby and he prefers to drive himself. I am happy to be a passenger and gaze out of the window that's if I'm not knitting or crocheting. Yes yesterday I was crocheting an owl hat http://www.repeatcrafterme.com/2012/09/crochet-owl-hat-pattern-in-newborn.html at 70 miles an hour, now that is fast !!
