It feels so good to feel well again! There have been lots of winter bugs around the ladybird household over the past week or so. I was unwell for most of last week with a horrible heavy cold...I don't think I've ever felt so exhausted! In fact I was too tired to do any crochet or any type of craft at all...a sure sign that there is something wrong! G treated me to some lovely flowers to cheer me up and I was certainly glad of my hot water bottle and many crochet blankets.
I started to feel better at the weekend and we went out for a lovely fresh walk in the sunshine. It was great just to get out of the house!
Our old radio completely packed in so we treated ourselves to a new one. I think I could definitely manage without a television but I wouldn't like to not have a radio. G and I both love the radio so much and have it on so often when we are home that we decided to get a decent one. It has the added bonus of looking really pretty too!
We have still had the fire on most days and I've been eating lots of porridge (with blueberries and golden syrup - my favourite way to eat it) to keep the cold out. It was great to get back to my crochet hook too and I made a wee hat for my cousin's new baby. I'm quite pleased with it as I've never crocheted a hat before! It was pretty easy though so I will definitely make another. The pattern for the hat is from the book Cute & Easy Crochet With Flowers by Nicki Trench.
Talking of books, thank you so much for your comments and suggestions on my crochet books post! I certainly have a few to add to the list now, and some that I hadn't heard of at all before, have now gone on my birthday list!
