I am only chasing a butterfly metaphorically speaking of course. I am trying very hard not to think about it,but,a week today we shall be in Dubai visiting our son,his wife and Sweet William.
Of course we Skype them often. He manages to change his clothes twice during each call generally. I love that so much. How a child's mind can be just like a butterfly. Slipping from pirate to cowboy in a second!
So, I am trying not to think about how wonderful it is going to be to wake up each morning and spend three whole weeks there. Reading,pretending,playing,watching him play football and cheering his efforts as he learns to swim. I can't wait.
But, just for now I am trying to stop my tummy doing somersaults of excitement. I am trying to calm my butterfly mind. And it's working.
Preparing packs of fruit for the freezer to use in the Nutribullet when we return home. You certainly need never throw away any fruit .Perfect.
We had our eldest daughter for a meal last night and the Pavalova with an Easter theme was just perfect!
And Mary Berry's recipe needed Lemon Curd. An added bonus was that the recipe gave enough to make a yummy jar for another time.
I got my sewing machine out the other day and made some Appliqué cards.
It blunts the needle but I love the effect these blues create. I keep that needle tucked away for the next stitchy card efforts.
I have been making these cute sweet Bootees with my small balls of yarn lately. They are really welcomed at Hannah's .
And probably the most calming activity of all. Walking on beautiful Dartmoor. It was cold and chilly but yet so beautiful. Being near water always calms me.
We love keeping up with our youngest daughters escapades in the USA .
So, my lovely Bloggy followers I am going to say "Toodle Pip,See you later,Au Revoir, Hasta Luego." And a massive " Thank You" for taking the time to leave all your lovely comments. They make my tummy somersault as well.... But in a nice way.
I will take a little break now to concentrate my efforts on my family afar and hope to see you here at Chalky's when we get back. I think that border will be finished in super quick time when I am trying to get over leaving them behind.
