We've been so busy in the last week, that we have been crawling into bed at unseemly early hours, just to have enough energy for the next round. Mostly we have been cleaning in and around the old house, which gets a bit neglected when we are away. The big drive for this decluttering was the planned visit of the estate agent to take photographs of the house before it goes on the market. The surveyor calls early this week, and then it will be for sale. I know there is someone out there who will love this cottage and take care of it.
But it has not been all work. We celebrated Finlay's 3rd birthday! He just looks the part - a belted knight wearing a football strip - wonderful.
I have also managed to finish knitting a whole garment - a wee cardigan for Erin. It was from a book called More last minute knitted gifts, and was billed as taking 4-6 hours to knit. And how long did I take? Oh - about 6 - 7 weeks! Not perfect, but there is love in every stitch.
And here is Miss Erin. I am loving lots and lots of snuggly cuddly moments with this lovely lady.
Anyway - busy busy, finishing the house stuff and organising more packing. In particular, working out how on earth we are going to fit the hen hut and hens into the back of the pickup along with the dog crate, feed bins, and other essential paraphernalia - so it may be another week before I am back here again. Journeying on. Love and blessings to you all.
