February catchup

Hello folks,

Just a catchup to show you whats going on. I have a finished tadahh :) My cowl. Very pleased with how it has turned out. Initially I was not too sure of the yarn but I have grown to like it. It feels super snuggly, perfect for winter walks.

It just needs to be blocked :) The colours remind me of squirrals or foxes.

Happy valentines! This is a beautiful card my daughter was gifted from her gran, we have not opened it yet it just looks too nice.

Flowers have been adourning my home. These daffodils are faded now but still beautiful.

I also received these lovely flowers from my ever thoughtful mum.

The chinese new year has been celebrated and my eldest made these amazing chinese lanterns.

I have just finished this book, my spare room. My mum gave it to me a good while ago. Yes it is very good writing but very very sad but I guess quite honest. It is about a lady who lets her friend who has terminal cancer stay in her spare room for three weeks. It is very frank. I always think you learn a great deal from reading and this is one of those books.  It is from the carer/friends point of view and the enormous hard work involved looking after her friend. It also touches upon unscrupulous medics taking advantage, charging lots of money for treatments that are a fad. Glad I read it. It has made me appreciate my own MIL's work that she does in a hospice.

This is the book I am reading now ... hopefully will be able to review it for you next time.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your week .....Leah xxxxxx
