I'm back, almost

Hello, hope you like the new look, although I'm still not 100% happy with it, so I may make more adjustments before I'm done.

I've been wanting to change the name of my blog for a while now, as I'm not knitting so much these days. 

The new title came to me the other day, when I mis-heard something that Rog said, so to all my followers old and new


I'll be back to proper blogging on 1st May

Week 50/52 345-351/365

This 365 was started on 1st May last year, and I am very pleased that I've kept it up so far. Now that we are on the verge of moving to a new home, I've decided to give myself annual leave for the last two weeks, I have proved to myself that I could do it, so I dont consider missing the last two weeks as a failure, more of a reward to me. I hope you have enjoyed my year in pictures.

I'm taking a complete break from blogging - but not from snapping - until 1st May, so I hope you'll rejoin me then to see how the move went and enjoy getting to know my new home and surroundings.

By the way, did you know that you can buy personalised OS maps centred on anywhere of your choice? I have just bought one for our new home, and I've already discovered about five new hills for us to climb within easy walking distance, woohoo. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

345/365 Rain 

346/365 Sunrise

347/365 Cobweb outside the dining room window 

348/365 One of the things I love about this house is the lilac hedge at the front, the
lilacs will be fully open by the time we move, so will be a lovely surprise for the new owners 

349/365 Oli was with us for the Easter break, but went back to Bournemouth by bus, via Salisbury, to be out of the way for the move (only kidding Oli, I know you have work to do!) 

350/365 Sunbeams through the trees early in the morning 

351/365 If you have reached this far you will be rewarded by seeing the only unflattering picture of Rog and myself that I will ever post - we found a couple of crackers left over from Christmas so rather than pack them, we pulled them - while enjoying a bottle of sparkly wine - and here we are. 

Au revoir xx

Help needed, please

Not long ago I succumbed, and "went over" to the new blogger, which I have now got used to and quite like. One thing is bugging me though - I am following quite a lot of blogs and there are one or two that I dont wish to follow any more for various reasons, but I cant find a "manage" section or a "delete" button. Is there anyone out there who can point me in the right direction, please? (If you do, I promise to keep you on my list :-)) Thankyou xx
