Hello! How's things? I hope you're all well, and happy.
I thought I would start this post with some flowers, the above ones I saw on a recent run, and the below ones were sent to me.
This week, the youngest daughter and I have been having fun. We went on this.....
and looked out and saw this.....
walked along here.....
and manouevered our way around this giant sticky maze. It was a giant maze, made of sticky tape, and you were given strips of paper as you entered, to add to the maze.
This was part of the Out Of the Box festival in our town. It's a massive under eights festival, with fabulous performances, and so much great stuff to do. I have no idea who the random child in the below picture is, but he seems to be enjoying the maze. Unfortunately I cant tell you if he made it through or not....fingers crossed he did :-)
We also went to a dinosaur petting zoo, which had fabulous huge, frighteningly realistic puppets. I mean, really realistic puppets, they were amazing!!!! We also saw a couple of amazing performances, The race for the Chinese Zodiac, and Me and My Shadow, both of which were based on books.
I've been doing a bit of running lately, and have decided to enter in a half marathon in a week and a half. I used to run regularly, but have had about a seven year break from it. I have really been enjoying getting back into it. The above photo was from one of my longer runs. I like taking photos along the way, as it gives me a chance to stop and catch my breath.
On the making and reading front, I am linking in as always with Ginny AND Tami . I'm reading The Snowman, by Jo Nesbo, and really enjoying it. I have become quite fond of the Scandinavian thriller genre lately.
I'm not sure what it is that I'm making here.
I started thinking it was going to be a cushion cover that I was going to try felting, but I had totally misjudged the amount of yarn I had for this, and the length of the cushion. So it's been a success in terms of felting, although I think it needs a couple more goes in the washing machine, but I have no idea what to do with it.
Any ideas will be gratefully welcomed.
