Still alive

Sorry to have disappeared for a whole month, I have been here, but a bit unwell for a while, so I've been too tired to do much other than working and looking after Thomas. I've really been missing all my favourite blogs - I haven't forgotten you and will be back soon.

Thomas, on the other hand is bursting with energy, and learning words at a great rate. He has also become very affectionate in the last few weeks and has been showering me with very sweet kisses and cuddles.

We had a nice trip to our friends' farm yesterday afternoon, and Thomas had an up close encounter with cows.

It was great to have a change of scene, and some lovely fresh air - it is a beautiful property near Braidwood. Here is Thomas again in that cable knit I'm still squeezing him into this year.

It was great catching up with friends and sitting around the fire until it was time to take Thomas home again.

We also had a lovely visit from my parents last week. Thomas adores them, and my mum is happy to sing 'bananas in pyjamas' and 'twinkle twinkle' as many times as Thomas can say "More peese." It was so wonderful to have them here, and we miss them already.

Well that's it from me - sadly nothing creative at all to report, but I am getting interested in knitting again, must be the chill in the air.

Hopefully I'll be back again before the end of the month!

Are you okay? I hope whatever you posted about recently hasn't knocked you for too much of a six.

Thomas is adorable! That cable knit jumper fits him perfectly.

Isn't it wonderful to see our little children with their grandparents? Warms my heart :)

Take care of you!

thomas looks so adorable and i cant get over how big he looks and that more peeze is killing me!
last winter was hard on me and i wasnt very creative. if you are depressed, sometimes the best thing to do is force yourself to do something creative. if thats why you were under the weather. we are here waiting for you when you come back sweetie
stay warm!

Thomas looks great in the sweater.

We still have a bit of chill in the air here in the NW. But this weekend might reach into the high 60 F. Then it goes back down again.

Stay well! It's lovely to "hear" from you...creative posts or not. =)

Thomas looks gorgeous in that cable jumper.
