It's been looking quite colourful around town this week, with a little fun fair at the park and a spot of yarn bombing on the high street. The littlest boy got a go on the bouncy bungee thing which pleased him greatly, a little treat as his brothers had done things they wanted to do and as you know, the smallest person can never be left out.
Do you know the book called "Titch" by Pat Hutchins? It's all about a little boy and his big brother and sister. The big brother always has a big thing, the middle one has a middle thing and the littlest boy has a miniscule thing. It's like that round here sometimes. We try to make up for it.
The silhouette of the castle was taken from an upstairs window on a chilly evening. Hasn't it been cold? I will be paying the price for planting things out too soon this year, that's certain. I've got a bit of a cold as well, so it's been a bit of a sluggish few days.
I'm feeling very drawn to yarn again at the moment, after a period of sewing a quilt. I think it's the cold evenings. The hot water bottle is still being pressed into service and I'm thinking about blankets. The yarn bombing was in aid of charity, and in the third photo from the end you can see my local yarn shop. It's on the far right of the picture, to the right of the pink house, the cream one with the sandwich board outside. It's small but very lovely. Perfect for that moment right before school pick up time when you think you might be in need of a ball of something. Every town should have one.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend and the May bank holiday (where applicable). No extravagant plans here, but I'm foreseeing rain, cocoa, fresh air and maybe a little knitting.
