Summer is here!

and we went to the beach today. Didn't actually go to the beach to sunbathe all day. We went down to one of our local beaches, Seaton, to walk the dog. And afterwards we got our beach chairs out of the car and the girls had brought their swimming stuff and we spent a couple of hours relaxing. The girls went swimming (it was freezing) and even managed to drag simon in (he cheated though and wore his wet suit). I spent most of the time sleeping in my beach chair. Very relaxing and I think I may have even caught a bit of sun.

Feeling less 'blah' now. My energy has improved a bit as has my stomach. But despite having slept on the beach this afternoon I'm surprisingly tired.

Got some wonderful pics of some gorgeous socks today and it's killing me that I can't show them but they'll be revealed in a few months time.

Not making much progress with any other knitting either at the moment. I've changed my mind about the Sockamania May socks as teh pattern and yarn don't go together so I'm doing something different but not sure what yet. Better get on with it hadn't I, May is nearly here. I've done the rib cuff and that's about it. LOL. Watch me panick next weekend.

Off to have a cudde with Em now and get her off to bed.

Have a happy knitterly weekend everyone!
