Jose started her new school today. She'll hate me putting this photo on, slightly rushed, no time to pose etc etc. She really did look smart and I was so very proud of her. Mind you Jasper decided to go to school on the bus so that no one would know he knew her!!! She really enjoyed it. It was so lovely to hear her so happy and to see her smiling when she came out of school. Still she has to get the bus tomorrow. Child free from 7.30 - 4.30!! Shame I have to go to work really!!

(If anyone can give me tips on how to add photo's. I have just lost one and it won't let me get it back!!)
Now I feel I can relax and try to get a few craft projects finished. Although i doubt it. I am knitting my first pair of sock. Ok I am cheating by using chunky wool but seeing as it is going to be me wearing them I think that's OK.

I have been given a blanket along with the wool to finish. It is amazing and over 6ft wide. Each row uses just under 25g of wool. I wonder how long it will take if I manage to do a row a day. But of working out there I think. The colours are lovely, bright and slightly hippy fied (something else to make Jasper cringe!!!)

And I finally found the 'safe' place I had put my buttons from my button swap. Isn't nice when the swap partner actually takes the time to read about you. Lots of reads due to living in Poppy Cottage!!

I have been following and I really love her wall Hanging of St Ives. I have never been but it is on my list of Cornwall places to visit. And I had a letter from my pen pen (my letters come on lovely paper and always sealed with sealing wax, they are so lovely) who is looking to move down that way and had been to St Ives just last week. Small world!!

I think I am going to make a list of stuff to finish next time! Might spurr me on to finish something before I start something else new!!
