Hello!  How are you?  We're all ok thank you.

I'm feeling quite chuffed with myself today as I have actually managed to finish ALL of my ironing for the first time since before Christmas!!  Yay!  I had been doing ironing but hadn't actually emptied the basket until today.  Hopefully that means I'll be able to spend some time doing some guilt-free crocheting over the weekend.

Speaking of crochet, I think I mentioned before that I'd subscribed to the new magazine The Art of Crochet?  Well, as yet I have only received the first issue and I got that in the middle of January.  I have phoned a couple of times to find out where my next delivery is but was told that there was a severe shortage from the suppliers and that they were awaiting more stock (?!).  I was told today that I had been allocated my next issue and that I should have it within the next week or so.  I hope so!  Fingers crossed.....

In addition to getting my ironing done this week, my wonderful Hubby cleaned our oven while Freya and I were at playgroup yesterday morning.  It was a lovely surprise to come home to as it hadn't been cleaned for.....well, I don't even want to think about it really!!   He also hoovered and mopped the floors for me - what a lovely Hubby!!

We had our first "casualty" with Freya yesterday, which was quite scary.  She stood up on the sofa and before we could get to her (Hubby was sitting at the other end of the sofa) she fell off, smashed her forehead on the edge of the coffee table and fell on the floor.  I was sitting opposite and it was as if it happened in slow motion but neither of us could get to her quickly enough.  A massive blue lump with a purple line through it (from the table edge) came up straight away and we rushed her to hospital to be checked over - we were perhaps being a bit over-cautious but as she hit her head we didn't want to take any chances.  It was awful in the car as the line on her head split and started bleeding, although I think that was really just a result of the pressure needing a release.  Luckily she was absolutely fine and the bruise isn't bothering her at all today.  I know that she's going to have lots of bumps and knocks but this one wasn't nice at all!

Anyway, that's about all for now.  I do want to share a couple of cupcake photos with you before I go:

I actually made these last week, chocolate with coffee-flavoured icing.  They were delicious!

I hope you have a lovely weekend.
