If August had a scent it would be lavender, this gorgeous plant will always remind me of summer. August is my month off, no work and mostly play. So without further ado, lets take a quick glance back at my August…
Marc ‘tamed’ a tree. At first I was reluctant to see this happen, we have a small garden and I love that tree, my hammock is attached to it! Now however there is more light in the garden and the house and the tree will grow back soon. The bonus? less leaves to clear up in the new year. I often wonder if there isn’t anything Marc can’t do, just look at him up there fearless as ever?
My boy and I spent a day in Bristol, another city I have yet to explore fully. We lunched down by the harbour and took in the sights of the river. My son loves trains and stared in wonder at the remains of the old dockside railway trains. Time ran away with us, We plan on going back with Marc and will plan a visit to the children’s TV museum and more sightseeing and eating!
We spent a glorious day playing the tourist in Oxford when I met up with Natasha from A Rosie Life Store. Can you believe that I had never visited that beautiful city before? So much to see and enjoy. The sun shone down and we had a perfect day. The girls took me to visit an incredible pottery shop and studio called You must add it to your list, the next time you visit Oxford, I purchased a beautiful yarn bowl.and Rosie from
Crocheting in August
Some friends and I spent an emotional but very joyful day with some amazing women, helping to crochet squares together for ‘Jenny’s Blanket of hugs’ Kate from Just pootling organised a marvelous ‘joining day’ complete with lunch, tea and cake. I chatted so much I dont think I managed to join much at all! I did however meet some lovely new friends, including Amanda and Jenny from Little Box of Crochet (if you follow the link you can read about their special story) Hopefully I will see most of them again at Yarndale. Are you going to Yarndale this year?
Of course there was lots of crochet being hooked up in the sunshine and visits to our local pub for lunch.
So a big hello to September, lets bring on Autumn, my favourite season of the year…
This is what we got up to in July…
