I had a couple of plans for today. 'The Ides of March'. It is my Daddy's Birthday. We all had a nice birthday meal this evening, including cake and dad was very pleased with his presents, Beer and hoodies. The kids have hoodies and a couple of weeks ago Dad said he has always wanted one. They will be very useful as Dad is a very keen astronomer, which involves cold, late nights stargazing.
|I asked him to pose for a Blog photograph and this is what we got! A mixture of my photography skills and Dad mucking about trying to act 'Gangsta'. Suffice is it to say, he likes the hoodies.|
Many Happy Returns Dad xxx

I am hopefully going to a 'Basketry' workshop tomorrow evening with my Blog Buddy Claire and my Mom. Claire is a member of Stratford Upon Avon Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers and Mom and I will gate crash. I needed some weaving material, basketry stash. It involved taking the dog for a walk when Euan finished school today. Walking with a large bag and a pair of secateurs. Trying not to look too suspicious snipping at the hedgerows.
Now Finally on to the business of the 'Give Away' to celebrate reaching a total of 200 lovely Blog followers. I did go to a yarn shop today, to my knowledge our town has a grand total of two, very small yarn shops. They are both good though. I found three pretty little prizes. Guess what? I also found some lovely green buttons for the green cardigan I am attempting to knit for myself. I think my dream was a premonition.
|First Prize: Pretty Printed Wooden Buttons|
(I will find these hard to part with!)
|These scissors are very 'Girly' too and would make a pretty addition to your work box. |
Besides being pretty they are also small and very sharp.
|The third prize are these three little charms.|
Thank you xxx
