Hi everyone. It's been almost a month since I last blogged, but... I am back. It has been a really tough month for us and to add to it my laptop stopped working, so I just took a break and I am actually really glad I did. I am now ready to work on some fresh content and I can't wait to get back to blogging regularly. So what have I been up to for the past month? Well ... Let's see.
First of all, I have been spending lots of time with my lovely family, giving the kids extra cuddles and going to the park etc. I even tidied the garden and cut the massive blackberry bushes - losing the battle, as I scraped my full body on the thorns and had body aches for days after and cramps in muscles I didn't even know existed, haha.
I've been crocheting LOADS! Making blankets and amigurumi toys for the kids. I absolutely love crochet. I am the 4th generation in my family and I am planning to teach Mia when she grows up. It's in my blood, I picked it up immediately and I really enjoy it. I even got my friend Rabia hooked, (no pun intended, but literally - I gave her a hook and everything, haha). We now meet for tea and crochet, like the old grannies we are at heart. Yay! And for food of course, mostly cake, but shhhhhhh! :)
I also started a page for my tassel blankets on Instagram, as I had a few enquiries after posting photos of my DIY blankets. You can order one on my Instagram page HERE. I will be starting an Etsy page for Threads & Tassels soon as well, but in the meantime just send me a DM on my instagram if you want to order one of these. I have cream and grey blankets available and you can pick either 12 small tassels or 5 chunky ones. Crochet border optional. I love making these!
I never thought I would find 'my lobster' (see gifs above for reference, LOVE IT) in another country, but here we are, two kids later, 6 years married (almost 7) and looking forward to an amazing future together. Hope I am not making you sick with this completely unplanned PDA :) haha. Sorry, I will stop now.
I will be back with loads of beauty reviews and lifestyle content in a few days. Might even give the old bloggy a little revamp. Who knows :)
Lots of love
