I know I said I was going to post first thing this morning……but the internet was down! Honest! We were all awake at stupid o’clock too, for reasons I will go into later.
I have decided that I won’t post about today tonight. We have had a fun packed day, and I need to write a special post about it. You will understand when you see tomorrow’s pictures.
This is the view that we have had of the rolling hills for the past few days. How miserable!
Today we went to Royal Ascot! Not literally, you understand, but it was ladies day and it was throwing it down. Today we decided to ‘make’ the most of a rainy day. How creative could we be? Well; Auntie M decided that we would bring Ascot to the rolling hills, out of the rain and with the best view in the house to view the races.
It was ingenious. We started with a buffet lunch, complete with cucumber sandwiches. We decided that as there were five of us we would do a sweep stake for each of the races….just a bit of fun! I can honestly say that the hours wizzed by. I didn’t win any races..it just shows that gambling doesn’t pay ! The afternoon was rounded up with Champagne and strawberries. Yum!
Can you remember me telling you about the new addition to our family? The truth is that this ew addition is 8 weeks early. An absolute little miracle. This really got me working out how my regular patterns can be adapted for a very tiny baby. Well this is what I came up with…….Now these are a new pattern for me. Even so, I needed to make them a little smaller the pattern said. Quite a bit smaller in fact.Have a look…….Can you see the fifty pence? Hopefully this gives you the perspective of how little these shoes really are!
Well a new baby needs to keep warm. So to go with the shoes is a teeny tiny hat. Two sizes smaller than the ones I normally make.
Fit for our little miracle.
See you tomorrow.
