One of my new Year's resolutions this year was to learn to crochet - enough to make granny squares. Well I'm getting there with that, but it's slow going. One day I'd like to make a blanket but today is not that day! However I saw this in a charity shop (labelled 'knitted baby blanket') and realised Miss Mouse would love it, so for £3.50 it was mine. So she gets (more) pink in her bedroom and I get something to aspire to!
Another half-resolution was to do more with the garden this year. I've certainly achieved more in the way of flowers, but also ta-da..!
Carrots.. little 'uns grown in a pot. What I'd forgotten until I pulled them up was that I'd planted the rather groovy not-just-boring-orange carrot seeds but er, white too. Next year I plan to grow the purple ones as well. What I'd also forgotten is how fantastic carrots taste straight from the garden!
