Just a little bit mad
Anyway, it's been a productive old session and eight bottles are now lined up in my larder in a rather pleasing fashion. There's something very satisfying about having stores of homemade food squirrelled away, dontcha think?
Vanessa's springtime throw looking absolutely stunning in its edgelessness, and I do have to ask myself why I think mine would look better with rows of granny stitch round it, but there you go - it's having an edge and fingers crossed it looks okay!
It's called the Just So Festival and it's for families - check out the link and let me know how highly we score on the madness scale. I showed the boys the website when I got back from work on Saturday and middle nut's head almost exploded with excitement. They didn't go to sleep until nine o'clock, they were so busy planning their itinerary, which mainly involved joining Robin Hood bootcamp, the midnight feast and the bushcraft skills workshop - I'm more excited about the family yoga sessions and the knitted art installation (everyone can knit a leaf or a flower and they're all joined together to create one enormous piece in the woods - what's not to love about that??)
I'm so looking forward to this that I have already indulged in a bit of pre-emptive, camping-related shopping:
