Lazy Sunday

Sienna and Sophie were discharged from hospital this morning. Mark rang Matthew this afternoon and they are all settled at home and quite happily getting on with family life.


Today has been one of those long lazy days which I love so much. This just about sums up my Sunday.

Sat in the garden with a G&T, reading a magazine.
Enjoying the sunshine and my favourite corner of the garden.
Inspired by an article in the magazine I'm wondering if I should turn the summerhouse into a craft room. Then wondering if I would walk to it in the rain. What do you think? Maybe I need to give it a bit more thought before I rush out to buy a tin of paint. 
And at the risk of boring you all to death I've crocheted another border around a blanket.  
Hope you've all had a good Sunday.

  1. yes. you should turn it into your craft room. A bit of rain can be dealt with with a brolly, and you could have fairy lights and peace and quiet, PLUS, you can shut away all your crafting crap and not have to see it in the house. Win, win!

    Been a quiet day here too, but I am in a bad mood. Something & nothing has caused it, I should snap out of it, but you know what it's like when you just get a bit Blah and it lingers. I'm annoying myself with my grumpy chops!

    Love your crochet. Not boring us to death. xx

    1. You've hit the nail on the head about not having to keep clearing everything away. That's my main griipe. But, I don't know if I'd really go and sit in there to do anything. I'm thinking now maybe turning it into a nice storage area, there's stuff crammed into wardrobes and on shelves and it's getting on my nerves. Maybe it would be just as nice to 'go shopping' to the summerhouse and choose what to do in the house.

      Aww, sorry to hear something annoyed you. It's horrible when you know you're being grumpy but can't seem to shake it off. Hopefully today has been better for you. xx

  3. So glad to hear that mother and baby were able to go home.

    Your Sunday sounds lovely. And I enjoy seeing all your craft projects. Turning the shed into a crafts room sounds like a good idea, provided it's not too hot in the summer, too cold in the winter, etc. You could give it a try and see how you like it.

    1. It's great news that they are home. We may be seeing them tomorrow but if not, definitely at some point this week. I love the idea of a craft shed but not sure if I'd really use it, so it will need some more thought. xx

  4. Lovely news-you must all be relieved. We came home on Sunday after a very blustery few days but our journey home was perfect as everyone else seemed to be going south. I went to The Embroiderers Guild with Bizzie Fingers on Wednesday and I hardly sewed a stitch for laughing and eating cake! Just my kind of women. I may also succumbed to some lovely food from the Farm Shop at Tebay on the way home.
    Glad all is well with your family and look forward to hearing about the adventures still to come. Catriona

    1. Yes, it's nice that they are home. Matthew popped in today for something. He was starving and tired bless him. Waking up and coming round slowly with a brew is totally different than being jolted awake by a hungry baby.

      Sounds like you had a great time at the Guild. We're going to back to Blackpool this Sunday to test the tow bar that's being fitted at the moment, so I'm going to try and pop into the shop. xx

  5. Just wanted to let you know that I have just finished reading your blog from the very beginning. It was a very enjoyable read and now I am going to put you in my favourites so that I can keep up with you.
    Congratulations on becoming a Grandma.....it's the best thing ever. I have a six year old and a three and a half month old-x-

    1. Hello Sheila and welcome to Number 38. Goodness, you deserve a gold medal for stamina lol. I'm glad you enjoyed it, it's just our everyday life, warts and all :) Oh, being a Grandma is one of the lovliest things ever. So different from having your own. Really looking forward to this new part of our life with Sienna. xx

  6. Lovely to read the new family are now settled at home. I'm glad you've had an enjoyable and lazy day. Sometimes it's just what is needed. I think I would have the same reservations about turning the summer house into a craft room. Great idea but the thought of getting soaked running down the path would be off putting to me. I love the crochet border and no, it's not boring. X

    1. I like the idea of having a 'room' for all my stuff but I'm honestly not sure I'd go and sit in there and do anything if that makes sense. Maybe I'll just clear the shelving and do something storage wise. I wouldn't mind going down to choose what to work with, that would be fun. A bit like going shopping. xx

  7. I'm so thrilled the new baby is home and everyone can just get on with it! For the new parents - the fun begins! Your Sunday sounded perfect!

    1. Thanks Rachel. The fun has certainly begun for them. Not a good night last night. Sienna wouldn't settle. Matthew's theory today is trying to keep her awake so she'll sleep tonight :) They'll soon learn haha. xx
