Hello my dear friends
I hope you're well
can you believe it's almost November???
I feel like a different person
a tired person!
I've just re~jigged my little mug shelf into autumn~winter stylie
which cheers my soul
There's not been much time for anything other puppy love and work
I'm finding it pretty hard to balance a busy shop, a busy home~life and a busy pup.
I want to say that I'm loving it but it's not coming naturally to me
it can be so frustrating and exhausting
I really hope this will change soon
I ADORE her, of course I do
how could I not?
but my life is completely upside down.
I think it'll help when we can take pupper out for walks
she has her second vaccination in two weeks
and then I hope we can use up some of that super~charged~energy that she has!
This is how she looks most of the time!

I love that I'm still picking roses from the garden
such an unexpected treat for the end of October
..... and now for my BIG news
I'm knitting socks!
I'm utterly over~the~moon about this
I've wanted to have a go for so so so long
I really didn't know if I could do it
I've had the needles and yarn for well over a year
just sitting there making me feel light terror
just now seemed perfect timing
I can knit them a few rows at a time when I have a free moment
(they may take a while!)
I've been using this wonderful tutorial
if like me, you long to knit up some snuggly socks
but suffer sock terror just have a watch
it's so detailed and helpful.
I'm so grateful to the kind people who make these videos
I really love using them
I'd be so useless at it!
Well I must be off
my little pup is waking up
