Finshed: A Boy's Baby Blanket

This is a boy's baby blanket that I finished last week. 
I know the picture is not very good, but that is kind of to give you the basic idea of it.


Project Facts:
  • I used 4 colours: sea blue, sky blue, baby blue and forest green.
  • I used up approximately 1 - 1 1/2 balls of wool.
  • The blanket is the perfect size to fit into a pram or travel seat.
  •  I am going to give it to some friends of ours who had a baby a few days ago.
  • The edging is the only part done in baby blue
It looks very At Home on our blue sofas, but soon, it will be packaged up and sent away with the post.

Fings wot I've been doin'

Hello there once more.
I would have posted before, but things happened and got in the way, but I couldn't be bothered to sit in front of a screen, when outside the sun is shining  and the daffodils in the garden are just opening up.
I have so much to tell you.
First, about the flowers. It all started with a few primroses, mostly snail eaten, but some untouched....

It grew to some daffodils from Morrisons................

Sorry the photo's side on, but I don't know how to turn it the right way up.
Then, a snowdrop appeared.......
And finally. in all its glory, our beautiful rosehip tree in the back garden opened itself up, revealing a snowy mound of white petals and honey scent.

Here's a kinda scaled down version of it.

I have been pretty busy with crochet..........but that will have to wait for its own post.
During half-term, we went to the British Museum. As we walked along the streets to get there, the snow started to fall.
It was magical, looking at the famous museum, with the snowflakes swirling and dancing in the air.
Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of it, but never mind.

Last, is a little kingfisher cross stitch that I have finished.

He is now residing on my wall. 

That's all for now, folks!

One Little Drop

Hi there again, guys
I would like to talk about one thing today.
Its a blog I have been reading for quite a while.
It is called One Little Drop. That means one little drop of life. The writer is called Ruth and I know her personally. She has Cystic Fibrosis. She is also one of the most amazing, godly, clever and optimistic people I have ever met.
Sometimes, she comes to her church, and never  have I not seen her in the centre of the conversation, having a laugh or discussing something with the other people. I don't know if she is putting on for us. If she doesn't cry afterwards, because this leaves her extremely tired. If she has no energy left.
I do know, however, that she is happily married to David. They are the perfect pair.
Ruth is a great role model, because she laughs even though she knows that she doesn't have as long to live as other people. Because her philosophy is that if you don't laugh, you cry. Because her life is a living nightmare, but still, she trusts in her God.

Race tomorrow!

Arrgh! I have butterflies in my stomach! I have a race tomorrow. It will be my second ever running race.
I guess the reason is that in my 1st race, my shoe came off- which was very embarrassing. Still, there is no chance of that happening, as this time, it is a road race.
Here's my team. Sorry its a bit blurred, but then it was taken on somebody's phone:
 

I'm the one in the black hoodie and leggings.
gotta go

The things and people I really love and appreciate.......

  • My family, who are always helping me learn.
  • The members of my running club, all of whom are very kind and encouraging, though they don't know me that well. When I ran my first race ( and lost miserably ), one of the girls talked to me about it during the next training session, and gave me some advice. 
  • My running coach, who is always there to cheer me on in the race, and afterwards tell me             ( falsely ) how well I've done, even though I haven't.
  • My best friend, Sophie, with whom I always can have a laugh, by e-mail or face to face.
  • fellow bloggers, who devote so much of their time to entertain us, their audience.
bye for now

Christmas

Hello again. Not much hooky has been going on at no. 33, but Christmas 2012 has been very enjoyable. Christmas dinner consisted of 3 meats, oodles of roasted veg and 3 different gravies! As well as that, there were stuffing balls, pigs in blankets and I haven't even got onto the dessert yet! Home-made Christmas  cake, Fox's Christmas pud, trifle and after dinner crackers.
delish!
It was also wonderful to see all the family again
Cousins, aunts, uncles. Its good that its Christmas!

Party

Hello again.
1st of all:

Happy New Year
I am as usual, late on everything. While other bloggers are writing about their past year, you are finding nothing on my blog. Well, I should give big thanks to the people who entertained us on New Year's Eve-New Year's Day. They did a whole salmon and a half for dinner. As well as this, they set off fireworks, got out the face paints and lit a bonfire. It was really brilliant, and truly enjoyable. We roasted marshmallows, and the little kids' faces ended up with painted spiderman masks, butterflies and tiger faces-lovely. Thank you all!

The True Meaning of Christmas

              A Very Merry Christmas to you all!            
Thank you all for reading my blog so far. I wish you all a very merry Christmas. 
As well as this, I would like to remind you of who Christmas is all about. Jesus.Nowadays, most people seem to have forgotten that somebody laid down his own life for us. Christmas is all about seeing family and being happy, they say. But the terrifying truth is..........
IT IS NOT!
I admit that part of the season is about this, but most of it is to think about God. I'm not saying that its wrong to have presents or a tree, but they ought to be something on the side. 

I still hope you enjoy yourselves, never doubt that, but perhaps, for my sake, keep the real reason for the season in your heads, throughout the holidays.
Another thing to discuss is what some people say about where Christmas came from. They say that it is actually a pagan holiday in disguise. That is so stupid. It is unbelievably dumb. You saw an old church, and somebody told you that it used to be a pagan temple, and therefore was still, would you believe them? Of course you wouldn't, or you'd be a proper mug. Christmas is just like that. 
Well that's all done and dusted. I hope it is understandable, but if you have anything to say or ask, just comment
