I brought this back with me from holiday. I don't usually buy anything but I loved the colours and wish I'd bought a couple of more pieces. It only cost £3 so I've no idea why I didn't.
They had lots of plants at Lidl today and I chose these. I didn't have a clue what they were as there was no name on the label, but Mum came for a coffee, took one look and told me they were ranunculus. I braved the cold and quickly planted them up then put them in the corner next to the iris bulbs that have started to come through. The sun is shining today and it might be spring but I'm freezing and I've had the heating on for most of the day.
I also bought oriental lilies. The colour of the pink is lovely and makes a change from the white ones I usually buy.
I've had a bit of a knitting fest this afternoon and finished the body of the baby cardigan and one sleeve. I've only ever knitted cardigans in pieces before but this seems to be a one piece, so I hope I've read the pattern right.
The knitting fest was in a bid to block out this horrible job that awaits me. There are a couple of towels and swimming costumes that will get put straight away but apart from that this lovely pile of ironing is all mine.
Plus this little lot that was in the wash basket before we went away needs to be added to the top of the pile!
And Thomas has decided to build a den, so no doubt after this lot has been dragged all over the floors there'll be more washing to do. I'm not bothered though. I love a bit of den building going on in the house and I might just climb in there myself and hide from the ironing.
The thought of which has turned me to drink. But don't worry, it's a rose lemonade tea which is absolutely delicious.
