We have had rain and lots of it, great for the gardens and water tanks. Not so great when you have two little boys with TONS of energy to burn.
As soon as the heavy rain stops we head outside and if the sun peeks out then we head further a field.
It has been cold, but not cold enough for coats. So every autumn I put in an order with my mum who is a wonderful knitter. Something that unfortunately has so far failed to come out in me.
I have a growing pile of Nana knitted wool vests. I find these are perfect for us. They allow for busy boys to remain active without feeling constricted. All the while still staying warm and cosy.
Mum finished the vest that Tom is wearing last week. It is a very pale green which looks great with the blues, charcoals and grey tops I seem to be leaning towards in colour for Tom. She has also made it slightly longer so it keeps the tush warm and will hopefully fit him next winter.
George is wearing one knitted last year for Tom. He has the same one, albeit a size smaller. I've put in another "order" for George, just deciding on colour.
Today after swimming we headed for the Botanical Gardens in town to run around and feed the ducks. There were also some great pops of colour in the gardens along with monarch butterflies to be seen too. It always makes for a nice morning out.........provided I take plenty of snacks along, there will be no one complaining that they are dying of hunger!
What do you do in the cooler months to avoid cabin fever? Are you a knitter or are you lucky enough to have an avid knitter in the family?
