This cute little bundle of knitted goodies is off in the post tomorrow for our friends who have just had a little girl. I've found that the baby hats are always a winner as a gift (knitted from Debbie Bliss Beginners Baby Knits) and I think the tank top will make it extra special.

I've been so exhausted from all the decorating of the past few months that I have hardly had time to pick up my knitting needles, but hopefully now we are on the market and finished this will change. A friend has already asked me to knit two roll neck jumpers for her twin girls, one in navy blue and one red, which I'm looking forward to making. Hopefully show and tell photos shortly.

Well its the end of a very busy few months getting the house ready to go on the market (if you don't already know we are selling up and running away to France - I'm not joking) So this week we had a photographer come and take the brochure photos. I thought you might like to take a sneak peek.....

We've lived here for nearly eight years and done absolutely everything too it. My sister-in-law described it as derelict when we first moved in and I have to admit it did feel like we were camping for the first year or so. Its wonderful to see it finally finished.

There is a church opposite the house which is only used twice a year for services. We were married and later both the girls were christened here.

I'm very excited about moving to France. We have found an area in the South West that we adore and we feel its the right time to embark on an adventure.

I want one.....

Even though we cracked our kitchen sink last night trying to fit it into the new worktop (I can report the air went blue for more than a few minutes and we will now be spending our Saturday morning at the DIY store buying a replacement) I still want one of these Bunny Drainers from the Design Museum Shop £24

Banish the Tuesday blues.....

I don't know about you but for me its not the Monday Blues that strikes me down its definitely more of a Tuesday thing. To balance this I'm showing off these lovely things I've come across on the Anthropologie website. Today I may not be buying anything (already spent all my free cash on a cushion and some vintage enamel tins, see earlier post) but window shopping from my laptop is still very enjoyable.
