It was the half term school break here last week, so I had a week away from the computer and instead spent all of my time keeping Toby busy or driving Amy around the county. Overall it was a good week with lots of walks in the woods, a few visits to the park and plenty of bubble baths and tickle play. We even had a burst of sunshine at the beginning of the week that did me the power of good and the plum tree responded too with more blossoming. Now though we're back to cold, grey dull days and both the plum tree and I feel on hold again. I hope spring makes a proper appearance soon, I feel rather winter weary.
It always takes me a few days to begin adjusting to changes in routine so I'm not yet into my term-time mode but spending yesterday knitting did help enormously!
I have a big batch of animals that I'm working on and hopefully in the next week I'll be putting the finishing touches to them in time for Easter (I'll send emails out to the mailing list once they're all ready).
Along with knitting this week, there is a big backlog of emails waiting for me to answer and I have no idea what is going on with all of my favourite blogs but I look forward to catching up with everyone's news soon.
I'm also looking forward to reading all about the Red Nose Day Dolls project which is being mentioned in several magazines (including Handmade Living, issue 22, April 2013). There are loads of new things that have been finished for the dolls in the last week and you can read all about some of them on the Red Nose Day Dolls blog, including my post about the things that I've made for them.
Well, that's all of the news from my end for now, apart from the good news that on our wood walks last week Toby took to wearing one less hood and a lot more smiles.
