I have had itchy eyes and been sneezing like Sneezy this last two weeks or so, convinced it is allergy related, but seems a bit early for tree pollen.
So got some eyes drops and something to stop the sneezes.
We have got winds, nothing much worse than a normally February on the coast, but nothing like what was predicted and it did not start raining till 5pm.

Another day that was not as bad as predicted weather wise. A lazy day on the fitbit, a mere 6349 steps, probably one of the laziest days this year.
DD2 bought me this as part of my birthday last year, so it was appropriate this week.
|knitting badly but knitting none the less|
A bit of early morning babysitting as DD1 needed to get Bob to the GP and the clinic in the village is only open two hours two days a week,so many appointments (if you can get one at all) are in the next village. Rather than trailing the three wee ones and the two she was watching for a friend while the schools had an in service training day I went down to watch them.
They were playing hide and seek, nine times out of ten they all piled behind the couch. Lottie is counting, and the wee boy (H) is one of the extra ones. Was quite funny as H would run over to them where they were hidden and point and laugh.

DD2 turned up in the afternoon with the two girls to stay for a few days.
A First Aid Training Day with Active Travel hub, another part to the cycle volunteering. Not that I have done any cycling with them for four or five months now. An interesting course, thinking has changed since I last did a course probably twenty years ago when I was a volunteer creche worker as well as a playgroup leader, makes me feel old to think that far back. This was based round being outdoors for when we are out with groups of people.

DD1's birthday so having made her cake yesterday I got to Ziggy to decorated it. It was decorated in a very typical toddler fashion. She put the parma violets on top shoving them in quite hard, getting butter icing on her finger, licking it off her finger and then putting on the next one. I put the butter icing on the back of the Jaffa cakes and she stuck them round the outside. Sadly I got distracted by a phone call and forgot to get a picture of her with the cake.

Have been knitting a second cardigan for Roo, did a normal one in five sections instead of the top down all in ones I have been doing for ages now. Was annoying myself as picking up the top and knitting the rib and it kept going wrong somehow, no idea why as it is simple, but it kept going wrong. So I ripped it out twice and gave up. Tried again this morning and managed it, and then realised I had put the two fronts on the wrong sides, so it is sitting here waiting on being ripped out again and hopefully it goes right the next time.
DD1 had an appointment for herself so I took Ziggy down with me to play with Spud while DD2 did the packing and loaded her car. It was peeing down time I was walking up. Left Ziggy there got her mum to pick up on the way out of the village so she did not get soaked.
DD3 and Fifi did some clothes tie dyeing a few weeks back and made a couple of babygros for Roo.
She is getting big and moves around by bum shuffling, quite comical to watch as she zooms off at a high speed this seems her preferred method of moving, making no attempt to crawl but no need to as she manages to move around fine this way.
Nipped into town to walk the dog somewhere dry and drop something off with a friend.
|is'nt she beautiful|
We never do Valentines day but hubby bought this for me for some reason, not that I am complaining.
