Friday Links: Amigurumi, Gaelic Kung Fu Panda, Birds

Last spring I accidentally started a ‘series’ of flower photos on Twitter and called it #MorningWalkBlooms. I think I’m going to do it this year too. Just noticing and taking pictures of flowers I see on my morning walks with Blake. A clump of bright daffodils really can brighten your day!

Hope you have a lovely weekend! x

I get outright giddy when I understand whole entire tweets in Gaelic without resorting to Google Translate! :-D

Well, BBC Alba have a bunch of animated stuff that has been dubbed so if you’re learning Gaelic too maybe check it out. I’m definitely going to watch a bit of Kung Fu Panda in Gaelic!

The big lie about talent is that it’s something innately already there, something ‘natural’, rather than something that comes from doing something so many times, at such a self-punishing and tiring level, that you can’t fail to finally be half-decent at it.@cox_tom So very much agree with this.
