Plenty of hooking time, lots of fresh smelling washing to hang out, and lavender to harvest.
We have five huge lavender bushes in the front and back garden and I certainly wasn't going to pass on lots of free lovely scented bag fillings! I have been busy chopping them back (just before they turn) and then collecting all the lovely ripe, scented heads.
Its been the most glorious job and now they are resting and drying in the conservatory. The house is filled with the most glorious relaxing scent.
Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, lavender's green,
When I am king, dilly, dilly, you shall be queen.
Who told you so, dilly, dilly, who told you so?
'Twas my own heart, dilly, dilly, that told me so.
So what more of an appropriate day to share some reason's to be cheerful. (Do join in! and let me know!).
Here is reason no 30 - take a look here to see for yourself how lucky I was!
And I dread to say that a lot of this has been consumer this weekend! Ooops!
And this next reason refers to realising that we had over forty eggs in the cupboard and despite giving lots to our mums they just seem to breed when we are at work!
So off I popped along the street with little egg gifts for the neighbours. I thought I would be out for a few minutes, but I must have been out for two hours, and had numerous cups of teas, and toured lots of living rooms! It was a really nice way to spend the evening. Rather Good Life I would say!
It looks like it was appreciated because I then received this ... how touching! A hen pin cushion!
And this week, Thursday's knitting class couldn't have come sooner. I was beat by the end of the week, and that treat on a Thursday really gives me one little extra burst of energy on the Friday. They must put something in the biscuits!
Isn't it easy to be cheerful on such a beautiful day!
And now I refer to Sunday dinner at Craig's Mums house today. Amongst all the partying for Laurence's birthday, regular vino consumption, house work and painting it was a welcome offer! Roast Beef, Yorkshire Puddings and hmmmm .... no washing up.
So, there you go! ..... even Mrs TT mouse looks happy sitting on in her new home.
Also I watched the end 30k of the Tour de France. We done Bradley Wiggins! What a race!
Now make sure you have a chilled and lovely sunday evening. I will be sipping some pimms in the garden and then watching the Tim Burton Alice in Woderland while doing some hookin'. Bliss!
