Relaxing Time

Even though I feel like I'm going slightly potty with not being able to play with my yarn, I'm still finding lots to occupy my time.
On Saturday I treated myself to issue two of Simply Crochet. I had read a lot of reviews about the first issue that I wanted to have a look myself. And I have to say that I adore it.
I really like the vintage styling and there is a good mix of both articles and patterns. And who could not love the yummy mittens on the front cover! This is a must make when I'm better.

I also took out my copy of Rachel Allen 'Cake'. This is such an inviting book. The pages of mine are wet from drooling over the fantastic recipes and photos. I enjoy Rachel Allen because her recipes are so easy and accessible and you can guarantee that they will always turn out perfectly. This is especially important for a baking book. On Saturday I made the lemon and poppy seed cake. And believe me even though it was quite a large cake there was nothing but crumbs left on Monday morning.

So I'm catching up on my reading. I've a big pile of books waiting to get my teeth into them. Also the Hubbie is teaching me how to play the tin whistle and its going surprisingly well. After getting past the first stage of making noises like fingernails being scratched down a blackboard and forcing the dog to go and run for cover out in the shed!

I'm keeping busy and relaxing all at once. Now you can't growl at me ladies, it is what the doctor ordered!!

Hope this post turns out ok. I'm doing it on my phone and they changed the App so that now I can't put my pictures where I want :( technology again!! Turning out to be a bit of an enemy of mine. Maybe even go as far as to say archenemy!)
