We've had such a lovely weekend. We did a spot of shopping on Saturday, acquiring paint for decorating the lounge next weekend and new shoes for the children to wear this Summer. We had our first evening meal outside enjoying the garden :-)


 Today we had a roast for lunch and then headed off to our allotment to plant some onion sets. Some of the garlic cloves we planted recently have already started to grow. I'm looking forward to when the brown earth is covered in lush green plants



When we got home it was time to make a birthday cake for my smallest boy who turned 6 on Wednesday. I made a chocolate ganache to ice it and then we decorated it with dolly mixture sweeties. I think I got a picture of it on my proper camera so I'll load it up later to show you if it's turned out ok.


 This evening Mr Soaring Sheep and I are looking forward to snuggling on the sofa with a cold drink and watching Poldark. I might have a bit of a crush on the main actor Aidan Turner ;-)

I've edged my Tully cardigan and done the short row cap for the top of the sleeve. I actually had to do it twice because I picked up 2 too few stitches which meant my count was off and I didn't realise until I was a good way in. It's nice and simple to knit again now so good for watching tv at the same time.


Or I might get this sock finished instead.


Toodles :)


  1. Happy birthday to your boy. Chocolate cake is the best. Can I ask, why do you have an allotment that you rent from the government when you have your backyard?

    1. Our back garden isn't very big and is north facing. Our allotment is 2-3 times the size, gets lots of sunshine and allows us to grow vegetables whilst keeping our garden for flowers. It only costs us £10 a year and means we get the best of both worlds

  2. The chocolate cake looks lovely, as does your stripey sock! I knit, but I've not ventured into sock territory yet. Good luck with the allotment!

  3. lovely weekend :) Your sweater is lovely and such a happy color! happy birthday to your little one :)

  4. Looks like a great weekend!
    Can't wait until our snow melts and I can start dig in my garden :)
    And happy birthday to your boy.

  5. Your cardigan is gorgeous!!! I love the colour. Happy Birthday to your son!! xx

  6. Wow, that chocolate looks so yummy, love the socks and cardigan. xx
