Hello Everyone :)

I am afraid I have succombed to this awful fluey, chesty thing that is going around, I may of known I would, I catch anything that is going! All of yesterday my throat was killing me, I could hardly talk it was that bad!  John was looking after me, bless him, he made all the cuppas all day, all the food, hung the washing out and got it in, he is so good :)

I may be poorly, but I feel wonderfully cosy! The weather is turning, and it is good to be able to snuggle under the blanket on the settee, with the lamp lit and the fire going, perhaps my hottle bottle snuggled into me for extra warmth, crochet and cuppa tea by my side, something cosy and comforting on tv, like The Darling Buds Of May……


When I am poorly, i like to use my time to do things I would not normally have time to do when i am well, and that is exactly what Little Dolly and I have been doing :) We have been playing the wonderful card game, Happy Families, with my Woodland Family cards, which I have had for years and years and years, and which my dear grandads lovely neighbour, Doris, gave me when I was a child……

We have been looking through my inspiration books, and Cath Kidston catalogues for inspiration, which is something I love doing!…..

And we have been reading books by one of my most favourite authors of all time, Miss Read…..

And because I have been poorly, Little Dolly has been doing little odd jobs for me, bless her, like watering the plants :) ….

Remember the oldfashioned dolls cot I showed you in my last post, how it had wool in it, well, I have taken the wool out of it, and put in one of my favourite teddy bears and my Tiny Tears doll instead :)

Tiny Tears is wearing her one and only outfit that I kept from when I was a child, I cant wait to make her a lovely crochet dress and have her on display, looking all pretty and oldfashioned :)

I love my Teddy Bear that is in the cot, my dad bought her for me a few Christmasses ago, her outfit is so pretty and oldfashioned, and she is wearing a crocheted jacket :) …..

okey doeky, I am going to have a nice hot bubble bath now, then cosy up on the settee, and get on with my crocheting. Oh, I have completed the back half of my Christmas jumper, want to see?…….

And I started on the front side last night. When I have done the front, and the sleeves, I will crochet a snowman to sew onto the front of the jumper, as I want this to be a proper proper Christmas jumper :) then I will sew it all up and put it away until the month of December :)

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog, and to leave your wonderful comments, which I love reading :)

Take care everyone, bye for now :) :) :) :)
