This Monday came as a balm of fresh air and sunshine. I spent my Friday night and all of Saturday (I repeat, all of Saturday!) with a headache, so in my books at the moment Saturdays can be so boo that the least good Monday can overcome them. And this one did.
I love knitting. It's one of the things that completely grabs my attention in such a focussed manner than I can switch off completely. For us knitting lovers, wool is a marvellous thing and wool shopping is one of the very shopping experiences (along with fabric shopping, of course) that I truly enjoy! So when I saw this hand-dyed carrot wool made by a Portuguese artist, alfinete, there was only one thing I could do... GET IT! And so I did! It is mine, all mine! It's beautiful and soft and mine!
:: Monday sunshine.
:: any day sunshine, really!
:: sending photos to Mum and Dad of the dress I'll be wearing for my cousin's wedding. and the conversation that followed. including details of the shoes and other accessories. with both of them. love, really love, their effort to be there for me on the silly things
:: calling Dad to moan about flight prices. I know, it's annoying, he says to me, but that's the price, what can I do. nothing, I say, just listen to me rant. ok, he replies, rant away. another important mission in a Dad's life, completed.
:: Little Brother's emails. a mini bombardment of adorableness.
:: my hot water bottle. even in June, the little thing warms my heart and my body!
:: Portugal is through to the quarter finals of the Euro 2012. exciting.:: carrot cake. and lovely Sunday afternoon chats and laughs.
:: bootcamp. it just feels good!
How has your Monday been? Better than the weekend and filled with lovely promises of a great week... I hope :)
