  Hi everyone! Are you having a nice half term?- I am :)
 Yesterday I did cooking and reading, and today I'm off to see friends :) If you would like any ideas for things to do, look below:

Knitting is great. I started a knitting project a week ago, and I'm already quite a way through it! I was getting really cold at night from a draught, so I decided to start making a blanket. I am using size 5 knitting needles, and some nice thick wool. :) I am currently casting on 16, and knitting 14 rows for each square. I'm hoping to make a nice big blanket, so I'm knitting 90 of these. Only 82 to go! Most people think knitting is a boring, time consuming activity. But these squares only take 10 to 20 minutes each, and I can pick my knitting up whenever I want. By the way, the spool of wool that I'm using is extra large, 400g, so the squares aren't that small! 

I like to do cooking as well, and here is what I made:

Apple, Orange and Pear Pie, Homemade Vegetable  and cheese scones. The recipes for these are on the "Food and Cooking" page. 
Cooking is good, because it keeps your siblings happy (for a while, anyway!), and it is fun :)

One of my favourite things to do is to read. I got out a book from the library recently, it's called: The Dragon's Eye. It's from the Dragonology series, and it's really good :) It's about a a brother and sister, and how they discover Drogonology. 

Rollerblading is also really fun. I do this often, and it's great :) Ice skating helps to do this, and I recommend them both! Lemons are possible on blades, while spins are not. Warning: do not try rollerblading after heavy rain.



  1. The cooking looks great... the pie looks fantastic! I will see about getting the dragon books they look really good. Did you know that on Wednesdays you can link up here and people can see what you have been knitting and reading recently?

  2. Thanks! I would read them, they're great :) No I didn't- Thanks again!
