Interrupting my holiday photo dump to brag about what I made while little Nina spends much needed time with her grandmother.
Pair of rolled brim hats for me and my babe - fashioned in the 60s, this was the female equivalent to the men's bowler hat.
Great pattern from Carla of Mouse&Thimble (on Etsy), where she calls it Barley Hat.
I adjusted the pattern as I used a fine Romanian cotton rich thread I picked up here, much thinner than the quick-to-stitch wool, but I'm well pleased with them even if they took much longer!
Done!! 💚💙 (<- until aqua heart is happening)
Cannot wait to wear this #grannygoroundcardigan in mint, with red pencils for buttons (obvs), once this hot spell is over. Of course it gives me enough time to make another kiddo version for Nina!
Thank you, brilliant @iron_lamb, for another splendid pattern. Such a satisfying make.
I've been rewatching House TV series, drinking cider and crocheting my way through autumn.
PS: got Thé à la menthe on repeat, that brilliant song and all the memories it brings.
Little sunflower loved the sun hat I crocheted her 💛

They don't call this place golden for nothing ~ this is our fifth time here, same hotel, same beach, same bars and restaurants, same people. I remember our first time - young couple, crawling to the beach at 11am after a late night eating tapas and drinking sangria, snogging in the sand and the sea and taking one too many photos. Watching the world go by and each other for too long. Not much changed with the years 😁 just more of us 😘

Me time. Nina's napping, Lucian is napping. And I'm right here, right now, on my own, with my own fabulous self, for 2 whole hours. I could easily do this for more than 5 days a year. I could probably live like this. Oh, yes.

Very few things make me happier than this. Actually, this is it. I'm peaking. Traveling, flying, going on a trip to a wondrous place, nothing beats a holiday. Especially during these times.
Time and place stand still and we're the best, happiest, luckiest, most fantastic versions of ourselves. Gosh, I missed this so much.
I'm the happiest theatre-goer and mum of a 2 year old who sat through and actually enjoyed the wonderful #Carousel musical at @regentsparkoat, nearly 3h long (including an interval obvs for drinks and ice creams). We expected to not make it through to the second half, but she absolutely loved it!! Laughed, clapped, sang along and of course shouted empathetically and worried "buba mare-mare" when one of the characters was in trouble 😘

Such an otherworldly experience, loved it so much.
When you book a family event like this and expect a multi sensory experience for little ones, yet you yourself get lost in a maze of colour, totally immerse yourself in all the feels and get goosebumps from all the weird and wonderfulness and, my god, live music and contemporary dance?!
Ps: this kid, I swear... Her feet don't touch the ground.
