Anyway, we have been plodding along over here, with summer on our fingertips and sunshine days, I have been pot planting and filling the windows sills. We have been on the waiting list for an allotment garden patch for two years. Yes, TWO! But this wee place is like a greenhouse
and I so enjoy watching them grow and progress.
I have been doing some baking in preparation for a tea party
Yes, it is that time of year again over at A fanciful twist for the annual Mad Hatters tea party! This is a fantastic event and I will send you out invitation towards the fun time! Wee doggie will be there and he can not wait to take you to the tea party! (He is also hoping that this wee blog works that day!) Please click on the picture on my left hand sidebar to take you over to A fanciful twist! You will not be disappointed!!
I have been trying to find new discoveries and I found one!
The other day I was stalking this new place I stumbled upon, From moon to moon. I. LOVE. THIS. BLOG. Please check it out for wonderful whimsy bohemian like ways here.
On the blog, I noticed a gorgeous photograph of a cafe in Budapest and they had heart shaped sugar cubes! How lovely i thought and I do like some sugar in my tea. So i wanted to make them. You just add some water to sugar and set. Unfortunately my shapes were too big, have too much sugar and were sickly sweet, but with a bit of modifying, i will make them again. I might just bring some to the tea party.

Big fella says he can always tell when i am knitting because he can here the click click of the needles as he comes up the stairs!
I have been health conscious recently and joined our local swimming pool. I was a wee water baby growing up and loved having swimming races with my dad at weekends. I even have a lifeguard qualification. But as the years rolled by, I slowly stopped and swimming faded into the background of my life. So I decided to get back in the water. After hunting out my swim suit from "it will never fit again, but I'm keeping it" drawer, I signed up and inwardly prayed that my swimsuit would not burst apart as soon as I walked to the poolside. Thankfully my prayers were answered and it was a OK. My plan was in my rose tinted mind, to swimming everyday for half an hour working upwards each time. Well, on my first day, I looked at the clock stating 5.00pm. Right I thought, I will swim lengths until 5.30pm, get home and cook Big fella a nice meal.
By 5.07pm I was dying to get out of the pool and collapse, it was hard work! I got home curled up on the couch and slept and big fella went hungry. So yes, it is a work in slow progress.
Ah well, that's all from this neck of the woods! Hope to pop by today and leave many a comment if wee blog will let me, if not know I am thinking of you!
