Lovin It Monday…

Lovin It Monday…

Last week I received a very late christmas present, a crochet book. Ive been going on about this for months! This week I am loving the fact that I have taught myself how to single crochet and double crochet! (obviously by reading this book!) Now […]

Funny Ole Week…

Funny Ole Week…

This week has been a funny ole week. It started of well, and then it slowed right down and ended in a sickness bug! Thor has never really been ill, but has managed to catch a nasty bug that has sent him into a panic! […]

A Late Delivery From The Postman

A Late Delivery From The Postman

Christmas I asked for a book, it was to teach me crochet. The book was in fact out of stock, up till now! and this week the postman finally delivered this book!

So there I was, hooks out, wool ready, book open. Chain completed… ready to do some stitches… Hmmmmmm. It just was not working for me. I came to the conclusion it was the wool, I thought the wool I was using was too delicate for practicing with and I was ruining it by constantly unpicking it all the time. Its nice wool and I would rather save it for something I would make.

So I searched online for a local sewing shop and found one near where my in laws lived, I was visiting them on Friday so I thought I could pop in, I called them and asked them a few questions and they were actually closer than I thought, right at the end of their road! On the phone she happened to mention a beginners 6 week course, it was very tempting! but I had childcare to think of!

I popped in to the shop yesterday and after speaking to my mum the previous day we agreed that I would do 2 of the classes to see how I would get on! (rather excited) I start on Tuesday. I bought two balls of wool and some rather lovely looking scissors (I am all for the accessories!) I got back to my in laws and I actually managed to do a double crochet stitch! I was rather impressed with ones self! I am putting the kiddo’s to bed tonight and I am going to practise some more! (after I have watched this weeks Walking Dead of course!)

Lovin It Monday

Welcome to my first link up! I am slightly nervous as to how this is going to go as there as so many great link up’s out there and I am thinking will this work and will people join in, well lets see? if not, I gave it a shot!

So my first lovin it… is….

Casseroles slightly weird now spring is in the air, but this is the only thing that has got me through the winter! I love casseroles and they are so easy to make, you just need one pot, a load of veg and some meat (preferably not horse). I try and make one casserole a week and last week it was sausages. Moo’s favourite is beef. The thing I love about casseroles is you can put them in the oven or slow cooker and forget about them, best way to cook!
