Relaxing times

The famous Ruskin’s view in Kirkby Lonsdale.

For the past week I have been in the Lake District, visiting my Parents. The week began with Mother’s day, followed the very next day by my Mum’s birthday, so this was the perfect week to visit. I often visit this time of year, but rarely for a whole week, often the weather is variable, but this time it’s been great, with bright sunny days (albeit with a few clouds and the odd small shower) it’s been making me really look forward to Spring getting into full bloom!

Out n AboutThis week was all about relaxing and not doing too much, that said I have got a fair bit if knitting done, mostly secret projects (all will be revealed in good time) and I have now have pockets in my Bláithín cardigan.

Bláithín pockets - Nettynot Blog I’ve also been doing a bit of doodling (very therapeutic) with a future project in mind. I hope to have more to share on this soon. I do love a break from routine; it definitely helps get the creative ideas flowing and it’s given me an essential bit of time to get at least one of them started.

Equally I’m a little sad that my break has gone by so fast and normality (and work) has to resume tomorrow, but I’ll be back soon enough!

    I love the Lake District, I hope you had a chance to visit Grasmere and taste their lovely gingerbread? The lakes have always been a place I go when I’m stressed and need a bit of me time 🙂 x
