my first granny squares and a special delivery

Well a couple of months ago I felt so inspired by some of the wonderful crochet items I'd seen on many of you lovely ladies blogs, and the beautiful crochet blanket I have that was given to my parents as their wedding present, that I decided I would finally learn to make granny squares and make a blanket :)
I sat myself infront of a few youtube videos and brought some chunky wool to make my attempts quickly (because I'm lazy!) and after leaving it for a while I decided to finish off the last of the wool and joined everything together to make this.

I took the picture with my phone which doesn't really do the colours justice.
I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out so far, none of the squares are perfect and some of them are a little oddly shaped and sized but I quite like it.
The only issue I have is that using chunky wool has left me short of making anything big enough to be a blanket.
The other kick was that the shop I brought my wool from had stopped selling my colours, argh!!
I've managed to find a website which sells the same wool brand but I rather stupidly threw away all of the labels so I have no idea if the colours I've ordered are the same as what I've used, but we shall wait and see :)

I also recieved me GORGEOUS hello kitty jacket this morning :D I love it so much I just can't stop looking at it!
Mr postman came along at 7.30am and I had to put it straight on (hence the tired, makeup free mush!)

I feel like a little kid with a new pair of shoes :D I just want to wear this everywhere!

my guilty secret

Today has been one of those days where I just feel a bit blue for no particular reason, so I have treated myself to a small bowl of my guilty pleasure...

chocolate fudge frosting :) it's sooo easy to make and SOOOOO yummy! I believe i've been really good by not making any cakes to eat with this ;)

I love everything about it, and the fact it's freshly made means it's still warm :D nom nom!!

a sad goodbye

Well after just one year of ownership from brand new I am having to sell my beautiful scooter :(
My parents brought me this beautiful machine after my vespa was stolen, and after customising it with the stars it became the "jazzle machine" and I became "lady jazzles" courtesey of my friend helen :P
I've had some great rides on this scooter but sadly I no longer work near a secure car park so I can't take it to work, and now we have Millie I must walk or drive in the sunshine with her ratherthan ride out on my own!
I will certainly miss the freedom of having a scooter but I know that when money is a little better I will be able to take it up again :)
