Not the best pictures this week. Milo was quite ill with the chickenpox at the weekend, so he’s looking a bit bedraggled in all the pictures I did take. He’s all better now!
I did a bit more knitting recently. I am on a stash busting mission, and a hat is perfect for using up those single balls. Plus the hat I made just before Christmas was really too big for me. This is my first hat with a pom pom!
The other week I went down to London for work, and took a half day the day before for exploring and general scruffing around. I headed to Shoreditch and wandered around for literally hours getting very excited about all the amazing streetart, before meeting up with instagram friend Alicia of Kitchentakeovers for vegan coffee and cake. I’ve got so many photos this is just the first batch!
I was at home with a chickenpoxy Ellis last week and one of the distraction activities I came up with was making these muffins. They’re from Anna Jones’ a Modern way to Cook, adapted to fit what I had at home or could get from the corner shop.
Dave bought this book, Alphamals A-Z by Graham Carter, on impulse the other day, it’s and anmial A-Z, which isn’t some magical new idea, but the illustrtaions are amazing, and the choice of animals is great, some of them I hadn’t even heard of, Quoll anyone? I couldn’t choose which letters to include in this post, so here they all are!
I’ve realised recently that I miss writing on the blog. I’ve pretty much just moved to pictures only, because I can do those while doing something else, whereas writing, I really need to sit down to do it with some concentration. I just don’t have the time to do that now, or rather, I don’t want to. But what I have realised is that sometimes I write really quite long comments on facebook or instagram, and maybe I should just write about stuff that I write about on there, fluffy things, or answering a question. Blog like no one is reading (which may well be true, haha!).
So with that in mind, today I am going to talk about the books I read over Christmas!
