In like a lion … out like a lamb?
I’m talking about March of course.
It was actually quite a gentle start
Although grey and often depressing the first few days were actually quite lamb-like. I think the lion was prowling around because suddenly ‘he’ sprang into life.
Apart from storm winds which were a feature of several days, we encountered a good selection of weather! One day here saw wind, hail, sleet and snow, all in the space of 15 minutes. After another 15 minutes all was gone and the sky was a brilliant blue!
Ironically that was a day over half term. We weren’t at home but enjoying lunch with our grandchildren at a bistro on the other side of town just half a mile away. This was our view throughout – and we only knew about the whiteout via a sudden flurry of messages on our neighbourly WhatsApp group!
This last week has been full of blue skies
So, hopefully the lamb has arrived for good, it’s making it easier to deal with hubby’s very bad back. Yesterday was a visit to the physiotherapist, we were the only ones there!
Maybe covid has inadvertently cured all other bad backs? 🤔
Meanwhile I’ve been hooking whenever I could get a moment. This was my decision for FIVE COLOUR FRIDAY (this link will take you to previous colour combinations )
I’ve used Gingerbread as the joining colour, it’s a shade to which I keep coming back! It goes with far more colours than you would imagine.

Why not try it. Let me know if you do.
Don’t forget. Five colours will give 120 different combinations There’s a downloadable list via that link.
The fourth strip of #simplythirtysquares was finished yesterday. Maybe it warranted a post of its own, but that will come when it’s finished. Next week I’ll also fill you in on the Cranleigh Blanket. These has come to a very slow progress, but it isn’t hidden in a dark corner so it will be finished, but, sadly, probably not this month.
Have a good week. We are blessed that life here can carry on as normal unlike other parts of the world. Definitely time to count our blessings, no matter how few there seem to be.
