About Me

My photo
I'm a recently retired Midwife living in rural Nottinghamshire with my husband . I have 2 grown up children (a Daughter and son,) and a grandson. Knitting and crochet have been a passion of mine since childhood - living in the country made other forms of entertainment hard to come by ! Now I find it very relaxing and rewarding, the choice of colours and textures available is just amazing.

Mother's Day treats

Sorry if you've heard enough about Mother's Day to last you a lifetime , or at least until next Mother's Day !But I really wanted to share my experience with you because it was quite memorable.
It was preceded by many Birthdays - my Grandson was 5 on the 10th ,and his mummy ( my daughter) was 29 the following day, sharing her Birthday with her Mother -in- law ! So a very expensive and exciting week with lots of presents and tea parties !
For Mothering Sunday my son made the trip from Kent with his girlfriend to stay with us, and came laden with presents for my Birthday (in October ! ) Christmas presents for all, and a Mother's day gift for me (Mamma Mia DVD )
On Mother's Day afternoon we all congregated at my daughter's house where she presented me with a beautiful box of hand made cup cakes !
And of course, the Mother's day tea she had prepared boasted some more beautiful cup-cakes ,plus a large cup-cake for her Birthday ! I think you have to agree she's the Cup-cake Queen !

Spring is just around the corner !

Sorry it's been so long since my last post, I've had a horrible chesty cold and been feeling very sorry for myself ! However, today I'm feeling a bit more like myself, so I've been for a little amble round the garden with my camera.

I will be returning to my series of posts on allergies and sensitivities just as soon as I've worked out the technicalities involved, but for now just enjoy these pictures !
