A belated Splash of Colour

That was a long blogging pause wasn't it? We all caught colds at the end of January and have been a bit wiped out so I've just not been in a blogging frame of mind. I haven't even done much knitting which is unusual. But I did continue to take photos so there are a few splashes of colour. First Lego Luke Skywalker goes to soft-play:

Miss Mouse has a bead-set that we got ages ago but decided she was a bit young for yet, but I finally allowed her (after much begging) to have a go with it. She made a necklace and a bracelet and then we decided that the beads looked like a ball-pool so we got one of the Boy's Lego minifigures to play in it.

We had a long weekend last week and went up to my parents in the Highlands for a few days - mostly it was cold and wet :

but the sun came out on our last morning and lit everything up:

Granted it was lighting the ice up, but sunshine's better than no-sunshine, eh? We had a lovely weekend - very relaxed and the kids loved seeing their grandparents. Wish we could do it more often really. I notice from the school calendar that March will be the only month of the school year without any holidays or in-service days - it's going to be a long haul to Easter!

The official Splash of Colour is over now but as we're far from the end of winter in this neck of the woods yet (it's been snowing again today, we usually get snow in March and the daffs are nowhere near blooming yet) I'll do the first week of March as well.

Thank you for the comment on my blog. I think Luke Skywalker in the ball pit is great!!! We don't have any snow down here in the South East but we don't have any sun either!!! Let us hope that spring isn't too far away. :-)

I agree with Simone, share us some sunshine down this end of the country. Thanks for the much needed colour.

Hehe, that was the last we saw of the sun - it's been relentlessly grey and murky ever since. My snowdrops are almost out now though, we're getting there!

Thank you both :-).
