we've certainly been keeping ourselves busy this summer holiday, doing lots & lots & lots, 

little O turned two this week 

& what a happy & lovely little birthday girl she was

i have been helping big G to write out (what felt like a million) thank you notes

printed out from here

& along with planning & buying for some winter knitting projects (mostly planned to become Christmas presents) i have set myself a little challenge & got myself this pattern book (from here) now i just need a few extra hours in the day to attempt to make myself something from it

must dash, the oven is beeping to let me know the banana loaf is cooked & i have to start packing for yet another camping trip  - after wondering how i'd ever cope with the long summer holiday i'm starting think i might need an extra couple of weeks!


  1. I know what you mean about needing more hours in the day. Pattern book looks good and so does the strawberry cake, happy birthday to little O.
    Enjoy your camping trip, we are considering going camping again but I must say we didn't find it the most relaxing of experiences!! You are definitely braver than us!

  2. belated birthday wishes to little O -- good luck with doing something for yourself :-)

  3. oh i bought that one too from the same place...isn't it adorable? i don't know when i'll find time to get making either but i love all the pieces. maybe by the time elsa's big enough to wear some of them i'll have had a go!! belated birthday wishes to you all and special ones to little o...getting so big and her cake looks yummy! love the link to the print outs too...a new one to me so i've bookmarked it to try out. have fun camping...stay dry! we're off to a wedding tomorrow and i think i'm going to need my tights!!! hugs xX

  4. Happy belated birthday wishes - two is a very special's when it all starts to take off - if you know what I mean - in a good way that is.

    take care,
