The summer holidays are in full swing, and we made the most of it by camping with friends so that we could all have a god catch up. After pitching the tent, we set off on the reasonably short drive to the beach. When we arrived, I joked about how close we had parked to…… Continue reading Be careful what you wish for (and a new approach to knitting!)
This post was nearly called ‘bloody beetroot’ as I was almost literally knee deep in the stuff.

I’ve made masses of progress on my sock after…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-18th July
