Happy Feet

Mommy, big boy and little boy shoes sit in a row...waiting for the rain to stop and the sunshine to come out to play...waiting just waiting and waiting.... You get the picture, the weather is wet and the sky is grey, cabin fever is taking over and the need for fresh air is now a Spring demand. Yes its cosy indoors, with the quilts on our knees or under our board games...the fire warms up the air and the popcorn seems to be permanently popping...BUT...oh how we long to play outside.
But happy feet we have and when they are as cute as these who can complain...leaving little foot prints after filling a bath, not for bathing purposes but for playing with our new boat...
Keeping the toes cosy is a must and this makes Mommy VERY HAPPY...my little poppet loves the socks I knitted him (see previous posts)...he pads around sleepily in the morning and curls up in bed with them on at night...Mmmm I really need to wash them there socks or they will not smell 'cute' for long!!!
As for me well I am pleased to report I am very much better, moving around now with ease and actually drove the car yesterday, a week from my op, what can I say, how amazing our bodies are at healing...

As for the crafting, well its slow and steady, knitting is getting done in the evening when the house is quite, bits and bods, sewing, badge making and drawing are getting picked up and down throughout the day by myself and my kids. The house is like a garden blooming with flowers in all shades, I have been so fortunate to have so many lovely bunches bought for me to cheer me up. I feel blessed with friends who have helped me with the children when I was still to sore to get up and about, for the meal that was delivered to long chatty phone calls with friends that live far away...The importance of friendship is a gift we should pass on to our children...

I promise some photographs of things being made or if your lucky...made!!! The light is so poor and I have to confess to enjoying just chilling out with the children whilst they are at home...

Have a great weekend and I hope the sun is shinning on you...

I'm really pleased to hear you're well on the mend now Suzie. My two aren't on their holidays until 7th April, so I'm hoping for warmer, more spring-like weather for those two weeks! x

Glad to hear your on the mend!

There's nothing wrong with just chilling out with the kids, when there back at school you just spend either end of the school day running around like a headless chicken (I know I do!)

Oh Suzie I haven't visited in ages and so much has been happening in your life. I am glad that you are healing after your hospital visit. The photos of your boys are just beautiful, in fact all your photos are just brilliant. I need to know your secret. I can't take good ones. I hear spring is on it's way next week, dust down those shoes my sweetie I think you might get to go outdoors soon :-)

I'm happy to hear you're starting to mend - it must be so hard having to keep still when you have little ones needing playing and cuddling and mummy-time!

Take care, and i hope you continue to enjoy the holidays - hopefully we'll all be able to get out and about soon. It's actually sunny here today, so we're off out :-)

Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better, take care not to do too much too soon, however tempting. Perhaps there is a reason for the rainy weather after all. By the time the sun shines you'll be fighting fit again.

Good to hear that you're feeling a bit better. Yes we all need to be outside now I agree. It's felt like a long haul hasn't it - fingers crossed for Spring

I love the photo of the footprints on the floor. Baths that aren't for washing purposes are so much fun, aren't they.

My muddy shoes are lined up too, waiting to get out into the garden! Maybe the sun may shine for us all towards the end of the week, I do hope so! x
