Spring blessings

In case anyone was wondering as to “why” I’ve been under the weather of late, I thought I might introduce you to Sprocket.


Sprocket is just about 12 weeks old and we couldn’t be more pleased!

Although Craig is still a little confused as he spent most of the time looking at the wrong screen and is convinced this is what’s in my tummy:

In other news, the ducks eggs have hatched and we have 11 little ducklings (photos to come) and the chicken has hatched 3 eggs, a yellow, a black and a speckled black & yellow (although last night we could only find 1 so we are a little worried now). The poor geese are still sitting on their nests, it’s so sad. And the hawk has been spotted trying to get the ducklings but Craig and the geese (the non broody two) saved the day!

Crochet grrrr

I’ve been trying to crochet a pair of booties from the Essential Crochet book Essential Crochet and it is just simply not working for me. The first glitch came for me after I finished the sole, that was fine, then the instructions said for the upper part to do 7 sc, ok, easy. Then do 14 sc down the side of the sole, how the hell was I supposed to do that, how am I supposed to know where to put those 14? Grrr! time to try it all again (3rd time’s the charm right).
