Picnic, nice mail, and Finished Object Friday.

1) The children come home from school for lunch, and promptly put picnic blankets down and have an impromptu indoor picnic.

2) Birthday cards, vouchers, and a cheque arrived in the post today – all good 🙂 .

3) Woo hoo – I have a Finished Object… Knitted in King Cole, aran-weight, Kingfisher, here’s my basket-weave hat. I’ve knitted it on the big side, so that it will be a bit slouchy, something I think appeals to the intended recipient. Hope so anyway!

Mail, No demands and the Ochils

No pics today, but some beautiful things nonetheless:

1) K sorting through the pile of mail which has accumulated over the last couple of weeks.

2) Fifteen minutes of blissful non-demanding quiet as I wandered round the library alone this afternoon.

3) The rose-gold sunlight bathing the snow-covered Ochils, clear all the way to Ben Cleuch, at sunrise and sunset – these hills have always spelled “home” to me, and today they were glorious 🙂 .
