Well where have I been? I was pretty good at doing weekly sunday posts then my life got manic. Way beyond anything I could have imagined. I started my full time job which has been busy to say the least but then my husband had a crash. He is a mad keen cyclist and crashed head on into a car. Husband was going at 40 miles per hour and broke his hip and has a badly damaged knee. This was four weeks ago now. He was in hospital for a week. I have felt pretty much thrown in at the deep end. I am not ashamed to say that it has been a very difficult time but we are getting there. Husband is slowly recovering and taking small steps. I am releaved the visiting has died off a little so we can all have some normality and rest. Luckily for me and DH my work is only round the corner so I am able to pop home and we can have lunch together. I have slowly adapted to this new pattern of life and what I found hard to begin with has become routine now. I an so so thankful the accident was not worse and I still have DH with me. I would be lost without him. Luckily for DH he is able to watch the football/worldcup and the Tour de France.
Anyway I thought I would do a book review. I have just finished Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.
My next book is going to be this one. Friend Request by Laura Marshall.
I heard my work friends chatting about this and how it is flying off the shelves. So when I found one copy in Tesco I had to get it. I have read the first chapter and so far so good. It looks to be a good thriller.
I took my girls to our local festival. MIL came too and it was fantastic. Great community spirit. I am proud to live where I live. Here are a few snippets of our festival fun.
My roses are looking lovely as well. Really pleased that I bought this plant earlier in the year.
No knitting has happened at all these last few weeks although I intend to do some today. I did get a little further on my scarf/shawl.
Oh and I also won some scrummy yarn from instragram.
It's a lovely colour.
