Lately I've been...
...Crocheting. I've completed the main part of the blanket and have just started work on the border. Only 3 rows to go!
...Reading. I'd seen lots of reviews of this which was being billed as the new 'Gone Girl'. I don't know about that but I did find it a good page-turner.
...Baking. I made these chocolate, cherry and almond muffins yesterday to use up those half-finished packets of ingredients which linger at the back of the cupboard. The combination of flavours was good but I wish I'd stuck to my usual base recipe (which I used to make these).
...Colouring. I've just treated myself to this colouring book and a set of pencils. So soothing.
...Admiring. This miniature narcissus, Rip Van Winkle (brilliant name!), was a gift from Secret Santa and I love it!
...Planning. Yesterday I saw a man about a new fence. The picture says it all really.
...Walking. I had a quick walk through a small wood yesterday enjoying the warm sunshine. I actually went out with no coat on! It really did feel like spring is almost here.
The woods are still very bare but there are a few signs of new growth. I'm particularly excited about the wild garlic because I can't wait to make some of my pesto again.
So that's a taste of what I've been up to. Just so you don't think I'm a complete billy no-mates, I've also met up with friends but don't have any pictures! I've also been quilting and have a couple of things to show you next time.
Today, Chickpea and I were going to go to the pictures to see Still Alice. However, it turns out that even though we have several cinemas nearby, not a single one is showing it! Very frustrating. Instead we're probably going to a garden centre. Have a lovely day wherever you are. x
