Loveliest Day!

So I have tonsillitis :(  Happily this is a secondary infection to the cold I had a few weeks ago, so it's not accompanied by all the cold symptoms.  Even more happily, I have codeine and live in a lovely place (I mean Tasmania, not the place you live in when you have codeine hahaha!).

So despite my best efforts to do nothing but be crook and sit on the couch...today was just a lovely day.

There was cardboard castle building with the kids:
The Castle

The Obligatory Dragon
Issy's picture of her brother as a knight 

Beaded trim on the ramparts (what else?) with the picture of the knight's horse

And a wander in the garden while collecting lemons:

Hellebores
Grevillea
The secret camellia
Lemons, mint and poorly placed raspberry canes (I have hopes regardless..!)
The boy collecting lemons
Pink azalea

A coffee at the beach (hot choc for the kids):


Me and my dudes

The happy doglet

The happy kidlets

And some knitting on the couch too! (Oddly enough not pictured...considering this is a blog for sewing and knitting and crochet!)

Am hoping to finish off the day with some gentle sewing or knitting and then score a lie-in tomorrow - despite being unwell this could be the perfect weekend :)

  1. Hope you are feeling better Chloe - looks like a great castle - I better not let this Kid see it, otherwise guess what I will be making this weekend!
