Well, we had a great weekend away; Jessie saw the Lion King in Bristol with Granny and it was amazing - she hasn't stopped singing the songs since... We went to the Museum in Stratford Park which was as stunning as ever
where there just happened to be an extraordinary installation in the courtyard of fossils - one of which was a knitted trilobyte!!! How often do you get to see one of them??
As you can see, I found it hard to stop taking pictures! I like the fact he is a 'Professor at Large'!
Milly had fun attacking us all with a 'docadile'
and got lovely a new knitted hat (a charity shop find, of course!)
Tula had a tussle with a tiger
The best thing of all, however, was an early birthday present from my printer father-in-law
an Adana letterpress!!!!! !!!! !!!!
And lots of bits and bobs
So I'm going to have to dust off this box of old type
And clear out this shed...
And get printing!!!!!!!
As you can probably tell from the unjustifiable number of exclamation marks in the previous sentence I am thrilled beyond measure, and am just itching to get going on it... he even gave me everything I need to get started, so it's damnably frustrating today that my utterly gorgeous baby girl is refusing to have her usual daytime 3-hour nap whilst the other two are at school/nursery.
AAAAAARRRRGH!!! I just want to play with my new toy!!!
And here's a prettier picture to leave you with on this grey Monday morning in Cornwall...
Have a great week! x
