♥Three things about today♥

What an absolutely gorgeous day we’ve had here today, the sun has been out in all her glory and there has been a soft warmth in the air, the kind that ever so slightly hints towards the summer.  Here are three things which have made me smile today:

#1  A bright blue sky.  What can I say about that colour other than it is absolutely gorgeous?  Gazing up at a sky like this, listening to the birds and watching the clouds go by is one of life’s greatest pleasures.

#2  In my garden.  I planted these gorgeous succulent plants a few weeks ago and I have to say I love them.  I am what I would call a keen but not very committed gardener, but I have quite a collection of these unusual little plants which I am hoping to make into a bit of a feature in the garden this year, once the weather is a bit warmer.

I spied lots of super cute baby plums on my tree the other day and I was truly beside myself with excitement.  I planted this tree about 4 years ago and this is the first time it has ever tried to fruit.  Here’s hoping they mature nicely and we manage to harvest some before the birds do!

#3  Crochet on my lap.  Oh I do so love working on this blanket.  As you can see I have made some progress, but not as much as I have been hoping for.  I seem to be suffering with a bit of RSI in my crocheting wrist at the moment, so I have been reducing the time I spend crocheting each day in the hope that this will help.  If anyone has any tips/tricks for managing it I would be very grateful for the advice!

I hope you all found something to make you smile today.

  1. My solution for crochet related hand or wrist pain was to switch to knitting as that uses different muscles!

    1. That’s a great idea, I have been thinking of picking up a bit of knitting lately. I’m so sorry for my late reply, I’ve only just seen your comment. x
