Carnations and Crochet

Little Tea CupDecided to start crocheting again. I tried a red panda but it didn’t really work out, and I was unsure if it was the pattern, or me, so I’ve crocheted a pattern from a book I’ve used before. I’ll give the red panda another go later. Carnation

Busy day. Well kind of busy. It was gym day. Plus I had a nap when I got in… Means I didn’t shoot this until 10pm, so I decided to be sensible and edit it today 🙂

A bit of lazy day today… I went to the shops this morning, and then came home and sorted out the washing. Then I meant to do the ironing, but I just kind of sat and watched the whole Sex and the City movie and did nothing else.

Then I took this photo (quick snap), and did my exercise, cooked tea and went to the gym. This was the last day when my brother can go with us (he’s into strongest man training, and the gym doesn’t really cater for him so he’s had to join a special one), so we focused on good technique so that when me and kB go together we know what to look for. I’m pants at good technique on the deadlift – I don’t push back when I stand up, and he is pants when squatting; but now we know what to look out for we can spot for each other!

Another TK Maxx bargain dress, this one was £9! ^_^
Yesterday’s shot was another last minute one. Another shot where the original idea hadn’t worked out, and I didn’t like the end result enough to post it online. That’s two this week, I’m struggling a bit more with this more ‘urban’ approach than I thought I would.
It’s the concepts that are letting me down, and part of that is due to time restraints and also the fact I’m working more or less alone. Hmmm. Still, it’s a learning process!

I really noticed tonight that it is getting lighter in the evenings. It was twenty past four when I was driving out of work, and it was still fairly light out : )

Sometimes we must seek out the light, rather than expecting it to come to us

As you can see my carnations are still going strong from last year 😉
