We had a pretty low key celebration; hidden presents with clues to find them; Gemma decorated the house while we were at work; then a nice meal with just us three at the Brewery in Kendal.
Mary Berry's recipe. It looks a bit messy, but tasted pretty good, especially warm with ice crea.
I have desperately trying to finish my ripple blanket this weekend. I started in December, having been inspired by Lucy at Attic 24 and followed her pattern. This was my first attempt at crochet and a blanket was probably a bit much to start with. It's very interesting to compare my tension on the first stripe with the last; much less loose now! Hopefully this won't show too much but you can see it in this photo.
Anyway despite my efforts which have resulted in aching hands I didn't manage to finish and so will reveal the final blanket next weekend.
As you can see from the title we actually had sunshine on Sunday and had a lovely walk near Arnside by the sea. Just look at the scenery
This is a rather confusing shot as it is still the sea-shore, but we have lots of encroachment round the estuary.
After watching children's films last weekend we went to the other extreme on Saturday and gave the new Total Recall a watch and have to admit we all liked it. If you like the Dystopia genre definitely worth a go.
Finally welcome to my new readers and thanks for the lovely comments. I will promise more crafty mentions next weekend. Hope the sun shines on you this week.
