North Norfolk Sunshine.......


Goodness, time seems to be racing by these days. No sooner is it Monday than we've arrived at Friday and no sooner is it the start of the weekend, than it's Monday morning again. It makes such a difference to feel and see some Spring sunshine though and to be out and about!

We left home yesterday morning amidst drizzly rain and dull grey skies, but with the promise of sunshine as the morning wore on. True to the weatherman's word, blue skies and warm sunshine greeted us as we drove through Holt on our way to the beautiful North Norfolk coast. We live in a really lovely little corner of the country; in the heart of city life with Arts in abundance and yet only a stone's throw from big, big skies and endless sands. I love it! Oscar  seems to quite like it too!


I have got a little more of my Roger Socks done, although I have to confess to finding very little knitting time once again this week. I just love how this pattern looks and feels. It produces a lovely squidgy warm fabric. The heel is turned and now it's full steam ahead to complete the foot. This little 'beaut' should be done by next weekend and it's twin on the way.


The younger Miss Snoops has just had an offer accepted on her first flat in London. She's very excited  and needless to say I have managed to convince her that she really does need a Snoopydog Blanket!
'Cosy' is taking a short period of hibernation at present, but needs to wake up pretty soon and head to the 'finish line'.



Yes, I'm watching the London Marathon on TV, which the very same Miss Snoops should have been running, but lost several weeks of training at a crucial time and has consequently deferred her place until next year. Old Snoops has just informed me that he thinks he'll put in a bid for a ballot place too.  Hmmmmmm!

I love North Norfolk. It's a long time since I have been there. It was a lovely day here too yesterday. Not hot but really sunny with big cloudy skies like those in your pictures. Hope you get a bit more knitting time this week!

I was knitting whilst watching the marathon too, Mr FF and I did our marathon running years ago so we can relax. I'd say yes go for it, you learn a lot about yourself doing something like that though no amount of training ever prepares you for what's to come. I had to complete 3 before I got to enjoy a 'painless' run with a good time.

Nothing like spring sunshine. It does agree with Oscar. He is looking most handsome in his closeup!
