Today we celebrated October by a morning at the beach.
You could just feel that Summer was coming and we're all anticipating the warmer weather arriving in the next few days. Lily was quite disappointed that she couldn't go snorkelling today... not quite the conditions for it really. She's used to seeing this stretch of beach at low tide when it is home to the most glorious rock pools and super super snorkelling fun for kids.
It's a really special spot. This was where Andy and I spent our last day as carefree young DINKs. That evening Lily began her push to this world.
October also means a return of Blogtoberfest! woot! This year it's being hosted by the lovely Kat from I Saw You Dancing. Kat is so lovely that she dropped by my blog to remind me about blogtober. How did she know I was so forgetful!!!! You can click on the pretty image below to get to Kat's blog and join up too.
So yes, this will be my third attempt at BlogtoberFest and this year, I might just make it through to the end. I'm thinking, possibly the same as I did last year, this could get me back into good blogging habits again.
This year, I'm going to be honest and admit I need some help. I need to feel the love to get me over the line, well and some ideas too.
So what I want from you, dear reader, is some ideas about what you would like me to write about. I have another 30 days to go.. so plenty of scope.
Do you want to read about knitting related stuff? (given that's most of my crafting, let's hope so!)
Do you want me to tell you about my stash? What needles I use? What are my favourite yarns? Whose patterns would I knit if I had the time? What I'm knitting at the moment? What patterns I'm working on? Do you want me to review a book, a yarn, needles, a gizmo or knitting App?
Do you want to know about my other crafting ventures?
Maybe I can do some sewing to blog about? or cross stitch?
Or do yo want me to delve into the often untouched world of my Wholefoods thermomix adventures?
Who knows maybe you just want to see photos of my adorable children?
Give me ideas, loads of them, and if I use yours I shall gift you one of my patterns (except for those under an exclusivity deal) ~ that sounds quite important! in either pdf or printed form.
