Better late than never - my calendar page for August
'Puss 'n Boots' By Herbert Laupin
It's been a bitty month so far - lots going on but nothing really to write home about. So I'll put it here instead!
Little Sis turned sixteen
Part of her present included a bedroom makeover so out with the girly yellow and in with the - gulp - all white with one black wall look. It actually looks fab but as I keep reminding her if she wants to thoroughly achieve a minimalist look she does have to tidy up after herself - not sure if that one will work! To inject some colour we spent a pleasurable evening sticking bits of paper onto the back of a perfectly nice dressing table mirror.
This wasn't quite finished but I then went out for the evening and on return realised the wonderfully helpful Mr K had reinstated them on the dressing table. Hm.
We've enjoyed glorious evening walks
With gorgeous skies
Loved this cloud
Regularly checked our fruit harvest
Just enough to keep the birds happy
Had a wonderful day trip to Buxton with its glorious opera house and pavilion (more on this another time)
Took some odd photographs
|Underside of fern|
|Vapour moth caterpillar - we called him Leonard|
|Ridiculously big dogs - look at the bin for scale!|
I've finally finished my crocheted object!
It's a bag! I do realise however that I can only buy attractive objects to go inside - none of your reduced prawn butties in here.
And I have another project on the needles - this time I'm going to attempt a fancy nancy lace shawl although I'm finding the mohair blend a bit of a bind.
So do you see what I mean? Lots of stuff going on but none of it particularly newsworthy or indeed vaguely interesting. So I'll leave you with a happy picture - happy for me because the fact I'm looking up has given me an instant face lift (I'm going to insist Mr K stands on a ladder for all my forthcoming portaits)!
Enjoy the weekend!
