Selkie at the Seaside

One of my all-time favourite things to do is to pack up and take my crochet to the beach with me for an hour (or preferably longer). This time of year is when my day-job just gets totally bonkers so I try to make the most of my precious days off work and spend as much time as I can relaxing and crocheting (the two go hand in hand: crochet really is my 'me time') - I try to take lots of photos too, so that when I'm all frazzled and burnt out from work I can look back and remember that I don't always feel like that.

So here are a few photos from my days off...

I'm really at my happiest with my crochet and sitting in the shade on the beach all on my own - the hours just seem to kind of melt away...

these ones were from yesterday - it's just so peaceful right at the very end of the beach...

I'm on my second day off work today but Peter is working all day so I'm staying closer to home and catching up on the washing/house-work side of things instead.

 Before I forget though -- this is my biggest news -- my parcel from the ladies at Lighthouse Yarns arrived last week!! Look at what they sent me  :) I'm thrilled with each and every item! Actually once I've updated my blog the next thing on my to-do list for today is to wind the skeins into proper balls of yarn :) The yarns they sent me are just so luxurious and are ones that I love to use myself -- I so love 'proper posh' yarns but my normal budget doesn't permit me to use them as every-day items.

Finally, yet another 'crocheting outdoors' photo - this kind of sums up my life on my days off (if the sun is shining, that is!)
