A primary coloured crochet baby blanket

Made another crochet blanket for a baby... This beauty is for a brand new teeny tiny girl born just 3 weeks ago.  This blanket, for a change, was decided upon, designed and made entirely by me and do you know what I do declare it to be my favourite blanket yet. I just adore the colours.

Wonderful Wednesday ... 40

Another week mid way through already, it's the end of February next week, HOW does this happen? I know it is such an obvious thing to say but my my we are wizzing through this year already aren't we!  I'm starting to feel the pressure now with all those new years goals and resolutions I set myself... yikes!

But this week has been fine, a normal week at work, plodding along same as usual mostly...

Let's get down to business then shall we? Here's what's been keeping that smile on my face this week:

A visit to Skipton on a steam train

Last week Dad and I enjoyed a trip on the very first normal timetabled steam train service in 50 years! Yep, it was a pretty special day!

a weekend in Ennerdale...

We booked a few days off work last weekend and went away, Friday to Monday to a wee cosy cottage in Ennerdale.  Ennerdale is an area neither of us know very well and we were super excited to explore this new 'wild' place.

Wonderful Wednesday ... 39

Well it's been a fantastic few days for me! I have been off work since Friday last week (back in today though boo, I'm typing this in my lunch hour). We enjoyed a delightful few days away in a beautiful cottage in the Lakes and it was really truly wonderful.  I won't go into too much detail because you know there WILL be a blog post (or two! hehe).

But here are the little details that put an extra smile on my face this week:

A visit to Gibside

I recently enjoyed a lovely day out with my sister, Phil her husband to be (very soon!) and of course James. We picked somewhere where none of us had been before, but somewhere really close to where they live in Gateshead.

Wonderful Wednesday ... 38

This week I have mostly been ill, not 'real' ill, just an annoying cold. And annoying it really is, I would quite like my tastebuds and sense of smell back now please, oh and being able to breath through my nose to sleep would be a bonus, hehe.

But anywho, I shall focus on the positives... I just went to Spinning class with said cold, and being able to breath is probably advisable for spinning, so was dreading it. But I kicked ass and hopefully sweated out my cold at the same time. I don't do sitting and wallowing when ill, got to fight the thing out....! hehe.

I gave up chocolate for January!

Yep, you did read that headline correctly, for the entire month of January absolutely NO chocolate what so ever passed my lips! I think this must be the longest I have gone without chocolate in my entire life. I'm seriously not joking.  Chocolate is kind of my thing, haha! Certainly my biggest vice or bad habit and something I truly believe I am entirely addicted to.

Hello hello! Well this feels nice doesn't it, a new WW post on the first of a brand new month, I do enjoy it when things line up like this.
