Weekend Snaps

What to do when the weather is so awful?!?   We took a trip over to the Turner Contemporary in Margate for the Craft Club afternoon.  It was really good, there were lots of people there and Mimi had a go at finger knitting.  She was really cute, she tried so hard and put so much effort into it but couldn't quite grasp it.  She was better with the knitting needles but she wanted to stay with all the other children.

All this talk of knitting has reminded me about my latest project.  A knitted zebra (although Mimi wanted red and white rather than the traditional black and white!)

I got the pattern from this really great book called Knitted Wild Animals .  The patterns have been well written and are easy to follow.

Today we had a number of errands to run and then lunch at Mikes parents for Grampy's Birthday. 

Mimi dressed up with the Angelina Bow toasting Grampy's Birthday.

One of my jobs today was to pick up a book I leant to my friend ages ago called  A Piece of Cake by Cupcake Brown.  This is an amazing book and was picked out of a hat on Friday for our new bookclubs first read!!!  I would highly recommend this book to everyone.  It is a true story about a young girl in America who ends up in the care system and her route through life, drugs, drink, gangs in LA and how she fought her way to become one of America's top women lawyers.
