It's an absolutely glorious morning here in my little part of the world today. The sun is shining and the birds are singing beautifully ~ it truly feels like spring is on it's way. I really do hope so! When the weather is a bit brighter it makes everything else (including me) seem so much brighter too.
It was half term for my two smallish people last week so we tried our best to cram in a few days out and about ~ swimming one day and a trip to the cinema and a pizza lunch another day. The rest of the time we were happy just to be really lazy and spent the time pottering about the house in our pyjamas ~ Oh how I love spending the day in my pyjamas doing not very much at all. Drinking tea and doing something yarny was about as adventurous as it got around here!
I managed to get a few of my rainbow coloured zig zag stripes mattress stitched together. Although, I must confess that it is taking me much longer than I thought it would to stitch them all together ~ there are another three stripes to go before I can start with the cushiony construction. But I am feeling fairly pleased with the results so far.
This morning, once I had dispatched the two small ones back to school, I decided to take myself for a little stroll along the beach to make the most of the lovely weather. Whilst I was down on the beach I just happened to pop into the little gift shop which is attached to Scottish Seabird Centre down at the sea front. There were some really beautiful seasidey inspired things that I really would have loved to have brought home with me ~ but I couldn't resist bringing home this lovely little wooden birdy which is destined to live on my kitchen window sill along with my seasidey mugs.
