Happy Mother's Day

It's Mother's Day in Ireland today. I was lucky enough to get a little lie-in (well until about 9 am when hunger finally won). I also received some beautiful daffodils (one of my favourite flowers) and a very cute card from my little man.

Later, while the little man napped, I got some time to myself to enjoy this.

A good day all round I'd say. So to all the mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day. I hope that you had an equally lovely day.

One other small moment from my weekend that I'd like to share. On Saturday, a ewe and her lambs decided to venture over the wall from their field onto the green across from our house. They happily chomped away for a little while, until himself and a couple of our neighbours managed to move them back across the wall into their field where they would be safer. And so the excitement ended......

Giveaway update!

I thought I'd show you the yarn I've picked as the prize for my blogiversary giveaway. It's Hedgehog Fibres Sock Yarn. The colourway is Powerscourt and is dyed exclusively for my favourite LYS This is Knit. The photo really doesn't do it justice but it is made up of a wonderful combination of blues and greens. Just beautiful, in my opinion anyway. So if you haven't already, leave a comment on my giveaway post (here) before midnight on March 13th. As an extra bonus, you can also comment on this post to have a second entry into the draw!! Please remember to leave your email or ravelry id so I can contact you if you win!! Best of luck everyone!!
