Knitting - A new sweater in aplpaca with colours and stitches to follow at the same time.
Starting - another pair of simple socks for when the sweater gets too difficult or 'sweary'. It will be a stash pair using up some Drops Fabel.
Sewing - up a quick pair of shorts for my little girl.
Ordering - take out cream tea from a local cafe and eating it in the park. We chose lemon curd because we love it.
Preparing - a salad box to take to the park picnic. My girls have taken to me cutting up a range of stuff on the chopping board and building their own salad.
Laughing - at their cooling down technique after a long dog walk.
Finishing - a lockdown cardigan but I wasn't keen in the end so I have gifted it to my mum who likes it.
Collecting - all of my green fat quarters and fabric scraps in preparation for cutting another quilt.
Admiring - some summer flowering beauties in our current garden. These campanula are regarded by many as weeds, but I like them.
Dodging - the showers outside in the new house field.
Getting - to visit grandparents at their house. The girls made these sticky pictures in their garden. It is a good way to learn some gardening knowledge.
Eating - a full range of tray bake dinners while I am at work full time. This one was particularly good. A Coq au Vin tray bake with red wine.
Building - Young one and I fitted all of the gripper rods and underlay to the upstairs.
Learning - Meg had some great area and perimeter home learning that day.
Missing - our holiday to Switzerland :( We had to make a decision over a month ago and we decided to take the refund we were offered.
Feeling - ready to stop home learning and just enjoy ourselves. The girls have not missed a day since March. Big Sis received a gold award with a prize for sending her work in daily and young one is so self motivated to do her work properly on every task... but we are all ready for it to stop for a while.
One week of work to go until the six week break.....
How is your July so far? Jo xxxx
