Gifts, Walks,Puppies and Yarn Along!

Hi guys :)

I've finally had time to write this! Everything suddenly seems to have picked up the pace and got going without a by-your-leave!

*Takes a breath*

I'm taking part in the Yarn Along this week as I've managed to take some time out to crochet myself a little wrap over shrug, this is an earlier photo, as i only have one sleeve to go :) 

I'm reading (for probably the hundredth time ) Never Look Back by Lesley Pearse 

Blurb from Lesleys' website;

(From the slums of Victorian London to a New World ...

Matilda Jennings was a poor flower girl in Covent Garden until the day she saved the life of a minister's daughter called Tabitha. Drawn into the bosom of little Tabitha's family, she little realises it will soon mean uprooting her own life.

For Matilda leaves Victorian London's slums and heads first for the darkest corners of New York, then beyond into the plains of the Wild West and San Francisco's gold rush. With only her beauty, intelligence and the strong will she forged on London's streets to guide her, Matilda must create a new life for herself and Tabitha. Between the sweat and tears, heartbreak and passion, she encounters Captain James Russell, a man in whom she might find true love. A love that must withstand separation, war and the birth pangs of a new nation. But through it all, Matilda knows she must never look back ...) 

Lesley is a wonderful author, who really draws you in to the characters' world and keeps you gripped right to the end. I can't ell you how many times i have sobbed along with the character 

My lovely hubby bought me chicken mug :) Of course, it is now my favourite

Look at these clever little things!! They've plonked themselves in and got to work, and are starting to thicken out and grow properly :)

A lovely friend gave me a wonderful gift of seeds! So many seeds! By this time next year the whole garden should be chock a block!

It is too late for some of them, but i have sowed the onions as they had started to soften

I also got to puppy-sit this handsome little man :)

The Bearded Wonder and I took ourselves on a wander last week 

and i managed to snap a bee working hard


What have you been up to this week? :)


  1. Lovely friend to give you all those seeds, I am reading Place Of Stones by Ruck Ruck also got her two follow on books next, I have got back into knitting this week with one of my many WIP's a lace scarf :-)

    1. Thank you Dawn :) I've never heard of that book, but t sounds intriguing! I shall have to see if i can find it on my travels :)xx

  2. Well done on the crochet, knitting and crochet are something I can not do, seeds how nice, we are both learners at growing, I must find my seeds and see if there is anything to sow soon.

    1. Thank you :) You should definitely give crocheting a go, it's terribly addictive mind you :)

  3. You have been busy, I'm glad your leeks are growing nicely for you now x

    1. Thank you Jo :) So busy that i publish comments then forget to reply! Whoops! haha :)

  4. Hello, thanks so much for visiting my little blog! :)

    You've got lots of lovely seeds there, how exciting! I like the look of your crochet shrug too, I've never crocheted an actual piece of clothing for myself, I'll have to be brave and give it a try soon! :)

    1. Thank you for visiting too :)
      You should definitely make something for yourself! It's the best feeling in the world when someone asks where you got it and you get to say you made it, it makes it all the more special :) x


Thank you for your comments, they are always appreciated :) <3
