Toasting my feet in Ludlow

Hello

This is my birthday weekend!! Whoop whoop. 

* Does anybody else do that? 
* Am I getting a bit old to be dedicating a whole weekend to your birthday? 
* How long will I get away with it?

Anyway, my friend offered to have the kids, so we decided to take a trip to lovely Ludlow. I have only travelled through it with work. 


The weather was so wet and cold when we arrived we headed straight to a pub and had lunch. 
Luckily the pub wasn't busy and we managed to get next to the fire . . . bonus. 
My boots had been leaking the horrible wet rain in, so sneakily I took them off n toasted my wet feet by the fire!!!



Then lunch, mmmmm pub grub!!





Rain rain go away, I want to look that these beautiful period buildings without wet eyes!







The remains of Ludlow castle. The rain stopped for a few minutes and the sun looks amazing shining on the entrance of the castle entrance. Almost saying, come in, come in, it is meant to be. Unfortuntaley, we were limited on time so we didn't go inside today, but we will return with the little people on a drier day.



Who goes to Ludlow and buys a beautiful persian rug? Yes, me. 
It was sooooo expensive, I feel so sick thinking about it, but we did get a good deal (hopefully) and it looks so beautiful on my bare floor boards. it will be apart of our home forever. 



Another treat when I got home, the latest issue of Simply crochet was in my porch. I love this button that came with it . I can't wait to read it eeekkkkk. Excited!




This isn't a great picture but this a pressie off my two sweet peas for my birthday. A sweet cotton tunic.I love the fabric print, it reminds me of a Liberty print. All we need now is the sun . . .

Winter warmers

Hiya

I finished my Granny square scarf n wrist warmers on sunday.
I ♥ them so much. They are so cosy n bright. They compliment the trim on my winter coat so well. 

I have had at least one compliment on them everyday,  I burst with happiness when someone notices my home madeness!!!

Now for some not so great news. Today i dislocated my right shoulder. I have had this ongoing issue since very small. But I can't remember the last time it dislocated fully.
Luckily, it popped back in after a few seconds. I was driving at the time, glad the road was quiet. I turning right on a round about. It's so painful and i've been advised to rest it  for a while . . . So no heavy lifting or straining it, wonder if I can get away with crochet?? Maybe try tomorrow!

I was out buying replacement sanding sheets to finish off sanding my dining table. Typical, I start something n cant finish it!!! See the pattern again!!

Chin up n all that. I can't sit still, how will I cope!?
