it's too depressing to take pictures of, so here some photos from last week, when it was lovely and warm!
my nephew's cousin had this cool gadget for observing little critters
like this fat caterpillar!
you can't see it in this photo, but it's pretending to be a one eyed lizzard! no idea what it's called!
the older kids were delighted to get a ride on the combine harvester
i used the rain to do some sewing though, with fabric i got in IKEA (bedlinen).
A purl frog, I drew the pattern on an a4 sheet of paper (printer no work), I think he's quite similar to the original!
doesn't he look so at home in the rainsoaked greenery?
and a little turtle, from this book i think (i only brought the pattern, not the book!)
oh, i forgot to mention the most exciting and scary thing, I applied for a career break, and i got it!! 3 years off! I'm delighted to get the chance to spend so much time with my little one, i feel so privileged! we won't have much money to spare but i think we'll be OK, and time with the babe will be worth so much more than money ever could be!
I really should be sleeping... I better go to bed!
