Good Morning……and ‘HAPPY FATHER’S DAY’ to all the Dads out there.
Since I have been in the land of blogging I feel that it has opened up the world to me, in very simple ways. Different tradition and celebrations is the first thing that struck me. I was puzzled when certain blogs I followed started talking about Mother’s Day in May. This was two months after we had celebrated here in the UK. I can honestly say that I thought Mother’s Day was celebrated at the same time for everyone…the middle Sunday of Lent. How wrong I was.
I think it is wonderful to hear about local and National Celebrations…….I know I may have mentioned the Jubilee a couple of times! A celebration of what makes us individual and unique. Hurrah!
Looking today though, I think that the UK and US Father’s days match. Enjoy!
As it is Father’s day here, I was up this morning to organise the Monster’s. Boo had already organised breakfast on a tray, presents needed to be wrapped, (which Roo wanted to open,) and cards needed to be sorted. DH, who had been up in the night with a weepy Roo, was ceremoniously woken, jumped on and acted very surprised, despite all the noise of the three of them ‘creeping’ up the stairs. We are going out to lunch later, so I decided that any making was to be done this morning.
Do you remember this photograph from way back in April……
….and this one from earlier this week……
As you know I had finished the foundation yesterday, and the make was just waiting for the decoration. I set to, and chose crochet as the medium for today’s craft. Two colours and a lot of faffing later….I had this to show…..
I know! I know! More faff…….but I love it all the same. The in laws can expect for it to make an appearance the next time they visit.
I have even used a daisy to close the tea cosy……..
This from a Yorkshire lass who drinks coffee not tea!
I think there needs to be a few more daisies on the top…and maybe a couple of leaves. What do you think? It did take me two hours to crochet nine of them, so I’ll have a break before I do any more though.
Anyway I am just pleased that it is nearly finished considering it has been hanging around for so long. Who knows? I may even finish the ‘Blast it’ cardigan at this rate.
Anyway, Roo is still running around in his pajama’s. He keeps asking when it will be ‘Brother’s Day’. Spurred on by the fact that ‘Daddy got presents’. I had better go and sort him out.
Have a good Father’s Day, and I’ll see you tomorrow.
