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

Scaling Amigurumi: a crochet investigation. My friend June is a big ol’ crochet geek. :-D Love It.
I think I have mentioned that I’ve been learning Scottish Gaelic on Duolingo? I’m enjoying it even if it’s a bit slow. Or maybe I’m a bit slow? A year ago, I knew one word (Sláinte = cheers) in Gaelic, now I know lots of words. Which is very exciting! I get outright giddy when I understand whole entire tweets in Gaelic without resorting to Google Translate! :-D
“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.
