View from the balcony along the side of Queen Victoria
And eat wonderful food
And enjoy lovely sunsets
Sunset over 25th April Bridge, Lisbon
And enjoy the company of DH and DD while none of us were stressed from work and lap up a little sunshine in November, not to mention having time to read, knit and even visit the gym - well, I had to do something to work of those wonderful scones for afternoon tea.
Back at home I was finally able to gift the knits I'd made for my wonderful manager who (sadly for us, but happily for her) has finally gone on adoption leave to become mum to a 7 month old baby girl.
Honeycomb Blanket made in Stylecraft Aran, which I started as soon as I'd heard she had been accepted to adopt (and believe me that was a trial and a half that she had to go through) and at that stage all we knew was that her little one would be under 2, so I decided on a multi colour blanket suitable for boy or girl, baby or toddler.
And then I couldn't resist
Missy Mouse (as H immediately christened her) who is actually a Bear Buddy Comfort Blankie but I have to admit the muzzle did come out a bit long so she does look more like a mouse.
