    Garden February/March 2020

    February was wet and I spent most of it grumbling that I couldn’t get out in it. We ended up planting our first early potatoes in tubs because they were determined to grow, luckily we had somewhere to store them so they weren’t outside and *fingers crossed* we should get decent crop off them.

    February/March 2020

    I did start my February post at the normal time but then March got complicated and I lost the will to blog. I don’t want to get out of the habit so I am fighting the procrastination and getting something down February was wet and windy and I was champing at the bit to get into the garden (which has it’s own post). March was, well, we all know how March was. I’m at home most of the time anyway and but being told not to go out makes something I’m normally happy with an uncomfortable fit. On the plus side being stuck at home has meant I’ve been able…

    January 2020 Garden

    This was supposed to be part of my overall January post but as you can see it got quite long. The mild winter (so far) has meant that there are plants budding all over the garden. There is a standard rose about to flower in my front garden!

    January 2020

    This month has felt very long, which is probably why I’ve been able to write this post on the 28th. Already settled back into the routine of Crochet & Residential Care Home Classes, in the latter we were making pictures to fit into fridge magnet photo frames. In between classes I’ve been busy crocheting and even a little gardening.

    I wanted to introduce something new to the residential care home craft classes this month and my original plan was to decorate fridge magnets. However once I began to investigate what was available it became apparent that the magnets would be too small for some of the residents.

    December 2019

    Nearly forgot to do this post, the “annual review” ticked off the “I’ve summarised stuff” in my head, but thanks to my second year of Bullet Journalling I’m being slightly more organised.

    2019 Review

    Last year’s review was quite useful in helping me set targets so I’m giving it another go. 2019’s Targets Continue classes at Wool Haven and residential homes In 2018 7 sets of beginners classes & 1 intermediate  at the Wool Haven A full year of residential home classes at 5 homes plus a new one started in September. 2019 was disrupted slightly by a house move but we still managed to squeeze in 7 sets of beginners and 2 mornings each of Tunisian and Amigurumi introductions. Thanks to the lurgy I missed doing residential home classes in January so didn’t get a full set there. On the plus side a…

    Cards for home

    Sometimes crafting for classes means I don’t get time to craft for myself. I thought this year would be the same but I sat down early in December and decided to do a batch of Christmas cards
