A Crochet Finish :-)

We are back home again after a lovely week away in Cyprus, when we went away the weather here was still on the warm side in the UK, but what a change when we got back! The plane landed and the pilot told us it was 5 degrees outside, brrr, what a shock to the system!

Just before we jetted off I managed to finish the blanket I was crocheting for my great nephew.  I don't get to see him all that often and had to leave the blanket at my sisters for his mum to collect, she messaged me on Facebook that he loved it and had wrapped it around himself to go to sleep in bed that night and wanted to take it to school with him the next day :-)

She sent me this cute photo of him.

I'm pleased to have had a crafty finish and that it's gone to a good home.

I hope you will indulge me with a few sunshine photos to end with.  We have been to Cyprus many, many times so I didn't take too many this time, just a few reminders.

An area called See Caves, you can see why

The ground around the edge didn't look too safe, so we made sure we stayed well back

This was our little hire car, lol

Looking towards Coral Bay

We just managed to catch a glimpse of the sunset before we set off for home

So there you go, told you there weren't too many :-)
There is going to be a lot of decorating activity over the coming weeks, we are having new windows fitted on Thursday so once that's done we can at last start to make the place ours.  I'm both dreading it and looking forward to it at the same time, the upheaval that decorating causes drives me mad but it will be lovely to have wallpaper on my bedroom wall, lol.

Until next time

I hate decorating too , just our lounge to do now before Christmas then a rest over the winter before we start up stairs .

Wishing you all the best with your decorating and new windows.
