May is my most favourite month. Everything is so Greeeeeeeen and alive. My blog post this month however is light on news. I have mostly been working with short interludes outside for dog walking and animal feeding.
Having - a haircut, back to the bob for a while.
Sewing - the Friday Pattern Company Wildergown blouse; the Atelier Jupe Liv blouse; the Juliette blouse and the Brumby Skirt. The Liv blouse is already a gonner because bloke put the silk blouse on a machine wash that was too hot! Whoops.
Collecting - eggs in my new big pockets.
Catching - rainbows in the May showers and cooler sunshine.
Weaning - this little fella. Only two feeds a day now and less next week because he is eating grass and lamb feed.
Moping - about the miserable experience my big girl had on her Bronze Duke of Edinburgh expedition. They got lost a lot, they were three hours over schedule on both days, it rained on the night they had to put up the tent and cook pasta, the rucksack was 18kg, the leaders gave them a different route to the one they had planned... it goes on. She hurt in so many places because they walked so much longer than all the other groups - 8am - 6:15pm non stop! She still has blisters in between her toes and two of her toe nails are going to drop off. She is over it now and so am I but it wasn't the famous five expedition she thought it would be. Shame.
Stunning - sunsets of late.
Knitting - a tank top. I still have a problem with my arm so it is a few rows a night on this one. I am not even on the interesting bit to show you.
Picking - my first crop of radish and spinach with loads more pickings from the rhubarb.
Photographing - in the lighter evenings. It is great to have a longer day. Here are a couple of my favourite photos of late.
Waving - goodbye to the bluebells and saying hello to the foxgloves.
Feeling - disappointed with the weather. Normally May has some prolonged sunshine and I start to live my life outdoors. This May I have mostly been working and banking up my tutorials while the days are chillier hence the terrific amounts of clothes I am making.
Looking - forward to June. There are some lovely things to come.
Thinking - I'm lucky that I'm happy to be living this life. 💙
