Lucky day!! I came home to find a small lump in my doormat - a parcel!! What a surprise!! Thank you to my secret pal!! I was gifted a beautiful brooch made from a real leaf, some handmade stitch markers with the cutest little bees on them and Vogue Knitting's Baby Knits Two. It has the cutest little moccasins in it which I will have to make!
Still busy with the Baby Denims, both legs completed and thanks to my friend Andrea for helping to join the 2 legs together - now I am slowly working my way up the "diaper" area.
Managed to go out for a walk after work yesterday - it was cold but glorious sunshine and it is now light until 630pm. It seemed a shame after a day in the office to just go home. I walked to Baxter Park (see the snowy photo below) which is a Victorian park to the east of the city centre which has been undergoing a £4 million revamp over the last 3 years - the old pavillion has been reconstructed and looks like it will be an amazing place for a cafe or gallery, the park landscape has been restored to the Victorian hey day and it has my favourite tree in it - the tiniest little monkey puzzle, learning to grow tall slowly over the decades......
and tonight I was running with a couple of friends - again it was cold and clear but it was invigorating.
