This week has been a slow one for us, back to the normality and daily routine, I’ve been trying to catch up on all the important blogging and housework that often gets put aside when things get rough but I’ve also sat down and crochet for the first time in a while.
This blanket which I am making for Robin has taken me nearly 2 years of stopping and starting.. it is definitely a Labour of love but I hope that when I do finish it, she will get many years out of it.
My mum was the one who helped me learn to crochet after desperately trying to learn to knit for years and follow in my nans footsteps, my fingers couldn’t get on with it and would cramp up but crochet is nice and easy.. well this pattern is, I’ve seen some extremely difficult ones that I’d love to learn but I cannot figure them out..
I saw this pattern on I believe Pinterest and decided to grab some wool from a lovely Instagram seller who had a pack of rainbow wool perfect for the job and got to work..
I only have a few more bits to go but I am determined to get this one done!
Until next time
Nothing fancy for this weeks photo, I forgot to do last weeks Photograph Sunday post as I simple was so busy, we went around my mums on the saturday, just me Amelia and Robin and it was lovely, Kai had so much fun with his dad and we got to go for walks and relax in the sun.
Amelia did this lovely drawing of a rainbow too, I love what she wrote as well..
‘The rainbow was colorful a lot and the colors are very bright and it is good’
I adore childrens writing sometimes.
March was another one of those crazy months, the weather was so unsettled, one minute it was sunny and beautiful and the next minute the snow had fallen, March was definitely a better month than February, I don’t know what was wrong with me but I was completely blue and non motivated during Feb which explains why I missed out on doing February in Photos, for one I just didn’t get out much and two I was also really sick with the flu.. Now I feel a lot better, mentally and physically but I just have the dreaded hay fever to look forward to once Spring finally kicks into gear!
The buds are blooming, the birds are mating and the bees are out getting the pollen, March also marks my sons 8th birthday which we went out to a Mexican restaurant and had the most beautiful table in the place and had such a fun time swimming.
Whats funny about this time of year is that we usually go for walks in the woods and I am snapping away photos of the bluebells, but when we went there last weekend there wasn’t a single flower, perhaps we was too early going to the woods or perhaps it was just the cold and snow delaying them from growing.. but expect April to be full of beautiful photos of those woods, I am also going to try and get some lovely photos of my children to include into the post too, I am very nervous about sharing their photos but I will keep their privacy hidden for my own personal reasons but I feel that they need to be added into the end of month shots too.
They mean so many different things to many people, but to me they mean two things, one being ‘Over the rainbow’ from the film Wizard of Oz,
I would watch that film whenever I had a chance at my nanny’s house, she would always watch the beginning but never the end having needed to get up and go get dinner ready. When she died the family was stuck on a song to have at her funeral so I suggested Over The Rainbow and it stuck.
It took us all a very long time before we could listen to that song again but now we don’t feel sad hearing it.
A is my rainbow baby, I don’t often call her that but that’s what she is, before we conceived her we had a positive pregnancy test, not sure how far along I was but within the week of finding out about that pregnancy, I lost it and I later found out I had suffered a chemical pregnancy which is a lot more common than people think.. the next month A was conceived so really any sadness I felt from the loss was gone and I continued with my pregnancy with her.
I honestly don’t call her it, but she was a rainbow after a storm and if I’m honest it made me realise how fragile pregnancy can be.
Until next time
