I loved the style of this post and now I feel terrible because I can't remember which blog I saw it on to credit them. If it is you or you know who it is, please let me know. I stole it, I love it and now I can't share it.


  1. This is a wonderful format for a post, and a delightful way to start catching up with you since I last commented on January 30, 2017. I have loved reading through your posts since then, watching you hone your creative skills and admire the skill of others, too. I am especially smitten with your use of buttons...the stunning cowl and clever decorative touches on other projects. The iPad case you made for your mom is so practical and a great use of your practice knitting pieces and felted jumpers! I flew in from Burbank, CA, last night after another good visit with family and have much to do to catch up with what I did not do while gone. As I get my bearings I look forward to being creatively cheered on by your posts and hope to eventually post again myself. Love to you and yours, Jo. xx

  2. I like the style of this post too! it was interesting to read. The flowers look so lovely I would want to be outside too to admire them.

  3. I don't know who did it either, I like it too... I like the sound of lime tray bake!! sounds delish.

  4. I have read quite a few posts like yours, there is maybe nobody to credit for. I really like this kind of post, so many lovely Jo things in one go! You are truly enjoying life! I can recommend the family dog. Getting Jack was the best thing we did since having the kids. I love his company and his unwavering love and he keeps my feet warm in the evenings, too. xx

    P.S. I have been trying to source that chalk marker you showed a few days ago - no luck. If you could ask your bloke to drop me a line with the link, I'd be eternally grateful.

    1. Thank you Jo, I ordered the last one. A good chalk makes marking on knit fabric easier! xx

  5. I think it's a popular posting style and a lot of people have done it...don't worry. :) I still can't get over your bathroom, it's so big and bright. I *love* that color on the wall, personally, so you have my vote not to change it!

    1. We do have a large bathroom, you could have a disco in it! The colour is called warm terracotta and is growing on me when the sun shines in there in the morning. Jo x


  7. Love the post and your bathroom looks great :)

  8. I enjoyed reading your post and its style:)

  9. This post is as refreshing as the change of season , thank you , got me thinking what responses I would give to all your questions.
    I'm off outside ...

    1. That is funny Emma, because that is exactly what happened to me when I read this post style somewhere else. I started thinking, 'what would I say?'

  10. Such a lovely post Jo! Lots to read, see and enjoy here.
    Happy weekend.

  11. I like the style of that too, very to the point. xx

  12. I love posts like these and often do similar - the use of verbs or "ing" way of rounding up lots of random thoughts neatly always pleases me! I also dislike the news, but I like everything else going on in your post Jo.

    As for getting a dog - even though our mutt is a handful in so many ways and I've never done so much hoovering - it is, without doubt, one of the best things we've ever done as a family and that four legged terror enriches our lives every single day. The only downside I can think of is fitting in walks/doglife around work - I am starting to think about career choices five to ten years ahead and am conscious that working full time might be tricky - but for now, with me working 11-4 every day, it's ok. xx
