We’re back from a break at my parents (jumpers are above in the shot). I could fill this post with just the photos I took and drawings I have done for new ideas – I am creaking at the sides with excitement.
I loved:
the sunshine,
walking on the beach with my dad,
resuming my superhero power of freckles,
facing new challenges (I won’t divulge here but believe me they were things I would never do under normal circumstances),
reading 5 whole books!,
eating pão from Fatima’s,
being with my mum,
laughing

A gratuitous second jumper shot because I love them

Some useful phrases for Portugal:
Gosto muito tricô – I love too knit
onde está o mais próximo de lã, que é uma emergência – where is the nearest wool shop, it is an emergency
Very useful!

Now I am home and the sun seems to be still shining, although the weatherman keeps saying it’s going to rain. There was plenty of exciting post here when I got home.

    She’s a bit unhappy at the moment – she has a cut paw which is supposed to be rested, and so she is sulking and ripping off the bandage on a regular basis! But she is absolutely adorable, all the same.
