Giveaway reminder

Hi folks,

Just a reminder that I have a giveaway running which will end tomorrow. If you want to enter just visit my previous post on how to do this xxxx

As the weather has decided to turn autumnal I have started to feel a little chill. I was thinking that I have knitted some lovely things why am I not wearing them. So over the last few days I did and I had the coziest tootsies.

So here is a showcase of my previous knitting ...



I love these socks, they may not be perfect indeed one is slightly bigger than the other but oh I do really like their crazy colours. I washed them today as well and they have washed really well too and I can't wait to wear them again tomorrow.



I also decided to wear my snuggly slippers. They will both definitely get a good wearing xxxx

I have managed to do some knitting of my Milo and I am pleased with the way this is turning out. I found the pattern for near the arms confusing as I prefer instructions to be straight forward with step by step guides and there wasn't but I muddled through. If you read my previous post you will see that I also had to rip back several times and start again but that is all part of the challenge.

I could not wait to get to the purple bit.

This week my eldest is still off school and does not return until Monday so we decided to do another adventure on Wednesday.

We went for a walk round Avenham Park with my mum and eldest daughter.








I will miss spending time with my eldest when the normal routine invades.

That's all from me friends. Thank you for reading and have a great weekend. P.s will announce the giveaway winner tomorrow good luck xxxxxxxxxxx Leah

Frogging

Milo is turning into a very froggy piece. I have stopped and restarted several times and I have painstakingly gone back stitch by stitch. This afternoon has been a froggy Sunday.
I must say though that I love the wool, it feels very soft and snuggly and the colours are just what I want to match my daughters grey eyes.
This morning we went on adventure and went for a woodland walk at Yarrow Valley Country park.




We had lots of fun looking up at the trees

The girls spotted lots of ducks and swans.

And came across this fella


And now my dear readers I shall go. Have a lovely Sunday evening and enjoy your week. Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Milo my friends is going to be this www.Ravelry.com/projects/Faith76/milo
It is going to be a simple *lol laughing at the simple part* seemless vest for my pre-schooler two year old.

Superfoods

Hello dear readers,

I have a day off today to look after my little miss. Have dropped youngest off at nursery this morning, my plans are to knit and unfortunately tidy up. Can any one pass me on a bit of motivation lol.

I have been trailing these two super food powders from Bioglan. Cacao & Flax + Super berries powder and the second one is Raw Cacao.

To be honest I have piled on some sneeky extra pounds so anything for a healthier life style is really interesting to me at the moment.

I decided to try the one with super berries with my morning porridge. It surprised me as I was not expecting a powder but seeds and I thought it would be a brighter colour such as purple. It did not make my porridge look very appetising. My porridge tasted slightly less sweet but still a very hearty breakfast and I am pleased that I have had super food squeezed into my diet.


This morning my eldest requested a smoothie so I thought what a perfect way to try the Raw Cacao.
We used one small banana, half a pint of semi skimmed milk and one teaspoon of Raw Cacao.



Now this really was my chocolate heaven but not quite my daughters as strange as this may seem she does not really like chocolate.
I will definitely have this again delish.
Enjoy your day Leah xxxxx
P.S Thank you to Tesco for letting me try the above products for free.

Milo

Hello dear readers,

The last few weeks have been packed full of adventure. Here is a snippet.

A teddy bears picnic
Trips to the seaside
Walks to the park and climbing mountains but will show you more of that another time.
Play dates galore, what fun these holidays have been.

So today I am working on Milo for my two year old so she can wear it for this autumn/winter. Quite ambitious for me as I  a slooooooow knitter.
I am using king Cole Country Tweed DK in shade Pennines. Milo is an adorable vest top which will look fab for a layered look. It is knitted in the round so I won't have to do dreaded seams.

I am also reading this. I shall reserve judgement until the end but it is hard going at the moment, surprised that it was a Richard and Judy summer read but as I say my opinion will change when I have read this.

I am going now, have a great Sunday xxx

P.S I am linking up withwww.laventanaazul-susana.blogspot.co.uk As she has a lovely giveaway to celebrate her five year bloggaversary to win a case for your ipad, kindle etc so get your entries in if you want to win fingers crossed.

Wicked but there is no place like home

We have had a wicked adventure this weekend but now back at home. We stayed at the Heart Apartments at  the Lowry as we went to see Wicked the musical at the Lowry theatre. It was absolutely fantastic! The bestest time. I would really recommend going if you ever get the chance. It was so cleverly written bit you are not going to get a spoiler here readers.



We also had a walk around Salford queys and the architecture is amazing. We had a lovely meal out as well at cafe rouge.






We did not have time for shopping or the museums but that will be saved for our next adventure.

I have been quietly stitching here and there. This is my progress so far. I am going to make four cross stitch Christmas cards.

I captured this photo this week which made me laugh of youngest and my dear husband. Now you tell me who do you think is the boss? Lol xxx

Have a great week and thank you for reading xxxxxx
