Buttons ahoy!

Not much to report here so I'll just post a shot, taken 2 weeks ago when we had friends staying with us. This is Spurn Point, where we spend a lovely day, walking and chatting, and building castles in the sand with the Bean. It's a stunning place, really, a very narrow lip of land that is only a few hundred metres wide the most (often less) and reaches a few miles into the sea. I'd never been, but I can see us returning there often.

In other news - we have a wardrobe in the kids' room now, so I can finally start washing all the newborn clothes. I've been nesting like crazy these last few weeks. Did it start this early with the Bean? I don't remember this at all... Or maybe it's because this time round with the house a bit more finished I actually have a CHANCE of being somewhat ready for the new arrival. So I've been rooting around, finding things, stocking up on things I will need in the first few weeks, but mainly I've been washing load after load of laundry. It doesn't help that I've decided to give cloth nappies a serious try this time round. With the Bean I didn't use them as much as I wanted to because we were just not set up for that yet, but this time I'm ready I think. :-)

Oh, and I've finally got round to sewing some buttons onto my recent knitting projects. I don't have a picture of Bean's cardigan yet because he is wearing it today and I didn't get round to it in the morning, but here is the Tick's baby cardigan:

I know, I know, you've seen this and it wasn't that exciting the first time round, but I'm always amazed what a difference a few buttons make. Suddenly it looks kind of cute while before it was just... a wide expanse of garter stitch. ;-)


  1. I want to jump into your pictures! They're lovely and make me want to be there. Your sweater is so cute, too. Glad things are going well for you!

  2. It's a cute cardi.

    That beach does look lovely - a real typical English beach ;)
